This is an actual spam message I just received (minus the website). I like that it's not a trick, and it's actually funny (in a twisted way). Geez, are these guys learning how to market, not just spew?
I could deal with getting spam like this, as long as it wasn't more than 3 or so per day.
Hello my friend!
I am ready to kill myself and eat my dog, if medicine prices here (website) are bad.
Look, the site and call me 1-800 if its wrong..
My dog and I are still alive :)
Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Things have been in flux like it was the end of the world. But, just like in the movies, it's all working out in the end.
So... did I miss anything?
One of the questions I'm hearing asked is, "If Diebold can make good ATMs, what's keeping them from making good voting machines?"
Seems the solution is obvious... add a "vote" function to every ATM. "Early voting" was available to me where I live, so, to avoid long lines, make it possible to vote via ATM for that entire time. I know few people who don't hit an ATM at least once a month.
Banks and credit unions are already seriously regulated and we trust them with our money...
Electronic voting machines. Nice touch with the printers in my precinct: closed container, "please verify" mode, etc. However, two of the 5 voting machines where I voted were offline because they were "low on paper". Quite a line was starting to form.
Waiting for my turn, all I could think of was "dimpled chads".
As for the results... we're willing to strap GPS transceivers onto people, but not willing to tax oil and cigarettes? What the hell is WRONG with CA?!?!
I signed my offer letter today, and start work this coming Monday.
I've received an informal offer. They're checking my references.
Had 2nd round of interviews at my #1 choice. This job would officially take me a step farther in the direction I think I want to go.
Had 1st round of interviews at another company. Totally different direction - a step closer to writing code professionally. It's an interesting choice.
Submitted a resume to another company whose senior management I used to work for, and who competes directly with the company I just left. Same position I just had. Neutral choice for career growth.
