State of the Dragon: Brand New Day  
I am officially moved out, and mostly moved in, for now. My extensive wardrobe managed to pull down the hanger rods in thoughtsdriftby's guest closet, so tomorrow, we get to do Home Improvement kinda stuff.

I need a good Ubuntu-compatible wireless card for the desktop; at this point, I think it's gonna be easier to go through the list on the Ubuntu site and order one online than it will be to try to remember or print enough of the list to see if I can pick one off the shelf at Fry's.

For the time being, though, the laptop's my primary computer. I need to get my email accounts set up on this thing, ASAP.

I did NOT get moved out before quelonzia's return from the airport; traffic and rain and procrastination all played their parts. I'm glad I got to welcome her home, though.

(And, sugarplum, I'm sorry I left such a mess in my wake!)

Tonight and tomorrow, a bit more settling in, home projects, and setting up email on this thing. Monday, the job hunt begins in earnest -- the last thing in my mail before I unhooked everything were a couple of very promising job leads from my sister's S.O.!

I feel: pensivepensive

Sometimes it's amazing what a change of venue will do when it comes to job hunts.

I searched for a job for close to a year, after getting kicked out of UVa, including a 2-month stint where *I* nearly ended up homeless, when Synge's roommate of the time kicked me out.

Moved back in with my parents. I had a second shift, decent-paying job less then two weeks after moving in. (It took me another two years, though, to find a temp job in my field)

Have a unused PCI or USB WNIC you can have if interested. Recall it being either an Atheros or RaLink based card. Both manufacturers I believe have Linux drivers for their respective products. Need to check to make sure though...

Of course you can use me as a reference. I'm honored you'd think I was good enough for that. Send me a note or an email, or a note so you can get addresses and THEN an email, on the details. Thanks!
