keep on grindin on...

Yet another job change happening. I didn't even quit this job. Moronic Film Company that owned us couldn't get their brains around the fact that we weren't just a printshop that saved paper by making magazines electronically.

I tell you, I'f I was a WWII bomber pilot I think I'd average a new plane about every five missions.

Dumbasses. This was probably the best design team I've ever seen. IF you got a couple hundred K laying around and want a group of cool people to build you a site, click the email link below... I'll hook you up with them.

Probably won't be there with them - i think i kinda scared them when I'd play CounterStrike in full cammies in the mornings before I started working.

Whatever.

This went up on craigslist today:

                                                           -- Skills --
Web engineering running the gambit from writing HTML (Homesite, Notepad,
even vi), javascript, Perl (with ODBC experiences), PHP (3 and 4), and 
Cold Fusion. 

Experience with administering NT 4.0, running IIS 4 as well as Netscape 
Enterprise Server (3.6).  Linux experience in administering Apache. You
can even say I know how to set up LANs, but I don't wanna do that.

Database experience includes MySQL, MS SQL Server 6.5 & 7, and even 
some Oracle and Sybase.  It all comes down to using ANSI SQL well, 
anyway.

Well, as far as web apps are concerned, and that's what I do.

On top of all that, I can even fumble around in Photoshop and do a lit-
tle bit of Flash in a pinch.

                                             -- What I'm looking for...

I'd like to find a place where professional isn't defined by the 
clothing you wear, but by your skills and your ability to push and 
expand them. An environment where I can learn new things is paramount.
I'm mainly into the scripting side of things, but I'd be interested in 
moving into other areas of site production.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Email Me.  

I've already got one contract i'm working on, so I'm not home a lot, 
and to be honest, I don't need 400 phone messages from people that 
just mine names and numbers out of this thing every morning.

Plain Text emails given extreme precedence.

Thanks,
Slappyjack

it's ok to contact this poster if you are a potential employer or other

I know I'm STILL going to have 5 fucking email messages tomorrow when I get home.

Slap Out.
