two (me and my job hunt), divided by internet

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
The company has hired an outplacement service for those of us in the finance department who are not relocating.  The seminars are this week.  Today, for the second of them, I needed my resumé.  We don't have a functional printer in the house, so I was going to try to email it to myself, even though several emails from home have not gotten through - I think the company's firewall is blocking my home email as spam, but it might have been the content I was trying.  Had it failed, I was going to ask gyades to send it to me from his email.  

 It all became moot, though, as last night our power went out just before 11 - at the moment I was preparing the email.  The power came back on... for about thirty seconds, not even time enough for me to boot up again.  I gave up and went to bed.  

Happily, it occurred to me to set the alarm on my cellphone, so I got up early enough to do things.  Unhappily, that forethought did me little good, because when I got up this morning, the cable was down - I called Comcast, and  there's an outage in our area (yeah, good, we haven't had enough trouble with connectivity lately!) so I couldn't do anything with my email after all.

This morning was rather sucky, on the whole.  On the other hand, though, I used my jump drive for the first time, and since my boss has an actual computer (I have a Winterm, which is a slimline box that just hooks to the network) I was fairly certain I wasn't going to have to go to Kinko's - though I checked, and I could have used the jump drive there as well if I needed to.  Looking at the Winterm, it actually appears to also have USB ports.  This surprises me, as the thing is extremely minimalist, and I am leery of using the ports, anyway.  Winterms suck mightily - I prefer to mess with mine as little as possible.

However, I have my resumé, and all's well that ends well.  

I'm ready - outplace me, please!
