First off, this is my 200th post. W00t!

More importantly--to me anyways, not that you guys really care--after 18 months of searching I finally got a job offer and accepted it. This means two things:

1) Darkness Falls is here to stay.
2) I won't be living in a dumpster behind a sleazy bar in downtown Boston, begging for coins on the streetcorner.

I just had to get that off my chest. Unemployment is great for about a month, then reality hits you. The Shadow has lifted!!

(or has it?...)

Well that depends who you are working for Wink

I'm currently working for the Evil Empire, but this'll soon change I hope.

Congratulation on finding a job man. I know how much it sucks to not have one, and I also know how much it sucks to search for a job (a process i'm in right now).

So good luck with your new job (by which i mean to say: thanks god Darkness Fall will survive Wink)

 Sad

This sucks.

I go into work today, and at 9:30 we were all called into a meeting. The owner of the company has decided to close down the office and outsource all support to another company. After just 3 WEEKS, I am unemployed again. Shortest. Job. Ever.

At this point I'm a bit liquored up and very bitter, and just want ot vent a little. This truly is an Age of Shadow.

Oh man...I'm sorry to hear the LD...that really does suck.  You'd think they would have a bit more planning than to hire people just before shutting doors...

What kind of job are you looking for...i.e. what field? 

I hope you can get another one soon, man.

It was completely unexpected. They had new hires start as late as this past Monday. My boss just picked up his new $30,000 car on Tuesday. i just reactivated cable tv and was about to extend my apartment lease by another year (have to inform them of my decision by next Wednesdady, 4/20). It seems that it was a unilateral decision by the owner and nobody saw it coming.

As for what I do for a living--when I actually get to work--I am an information technology expert, mostly focused on technology support and training (both as a technician and as a manager), but I've held positions in data analysis, KPI metrics development and generation, change coordination, etc. If there's a keyboard involved, I've probably done it at one time or another.

The killer is that I was down to my last $100 when I landed this job. I finally thought I was going to survive and move forward, and now this happens. I've got about 4 weeks before all my money is gone.

Hey LD,

I'm sure most of us realize that Darkness Falls doesn't exist for free, and hosting costs money.  If you want some help keeping Darkness Falls online while you save your money for real-life, just say the word.  I know I'd be happy to pitch in, with all that I've gotten out of it.

Thanks guys, but Darkness Falls is prepaid up to September 6. I'm more worried about wher I'm going to live come July 1. If I don't renew my lease by April 30, I have to leave my apartment in 2 months.

Unfortunately I don't know anyone in your area, and especially not anyone hiring for your expertise.  Perhaps someone else on the boards does?

Yeah, my best thoughts are with you as well,

W00t! As long as I live, Gamilon lives...

I don't have a start date yet, but I've found a new job--with a company unlikely to close its doors in 3 weeks! Best part is that they are going to pay me about $10K more than I expected, so I win all around!

The Shadow is lifting from my life!

Great news LD, I am very very happy to hear it, I haven't been with AtS a lot lately but I lurk! My life has been sorting itself out amazingly well this year, lots of good things happening, one of them being that I am certain I will be on a job by the year's end. mrgreen
