I just moved here and my dad is here for the weekend to visit
I have no idea what to do with him
Is there anything going on this weekend that is dad-tastic?
Thanks so much!
While visiting, most of the people we talked to who moved to Portland from another state didn't have much of a problem finding a job, yet I keep hearing how terrible the job market is. My family is freaking out thinking I'm going to lose everything when I move there. So, those of you who moved there within the last couple of years, was it really all that hard to find a job? I've heard that the job placement agencies are pretty good, as is craigslist, and it seems the positive stories have so far outweighed the bad. Wot's, uh, the deal? I'm all cornfused!
P.S. Go to Powell's right now and buy Tom Robbins' latest book "Wild Ducks Flying Backward". It's his articles, short stories, poems, rants etc.
does anyone have the website that my (and some of your) icon is from? I can't remember :(
you guys rulez. feel free to post comments of other neat icon making sites and maybe a paid member can memories this, if any one feels its important enough XD
My new icon RULEZ
Does anyone know the name of the site (possibly korean?) where lots of lj-ers get their icons done in catoonist-portrait form?
(I know people have posted about this before...sorry...don't have time to sort through the masses...)
In the next few days, this girl is going to desperately need a spa treatment. I may even need to drag about five of my coworkers with me. Any recomendations?
1. Re-read American Gods
2. Clean house while listening to the rain
3. Justify watching Cirque du Soleil
Here's how much of an internet novice I am. I have no friggin' idea how P2P programs like bit torrent and the like work. Could someone fill me in as to what I have to do in order to download these things so I too can get decent material on the 'net be it videos or music? Someone mentioned limewire when I asked about mashups a few days ago but what is that? What do any of these programs exactly do? Here's my naive take on them. Are they programs that allow me to get stuff from the internet (legal or not) but I have to exchange these things for something I have in return? What if I don't have something of value since I really don't know how to download the goods I have anyways? Also, do these various programs past and present work on Macs? Does limewire work on a Macintosh? Out of these programs (pro Mac of course), which is the best to download with the least amount of damage be it computer corruption (virues, spyware, etc.) or legal action from the outside? Some damnportlander has to know or can direct me to one who does, right?
That's right Damn Portlanders....it's another one of those "we're coming to visit and need ideas" kind of questions. Anything of interest would help. Mainly the cheap places to eat. Anything super exciting going on?
We are flying in on Monday and will be in town for a week. So that's it. Do your best. And thank you.
So who here worked at Stream International?
What did you think of it?
