Full-time…young guys only…and US Citizens and Green CARD….. don’t need people with all the skills mentioned in the JD.
it then goes on to state the position and that "JD".
This is not only offensive and illegal, but you've left no indication of
what "young guys" are to you. I can assume that a four year degree and
three years of experience means you are looking for someone around 25
years old? I could also assume that you read my profile and/or resume and
know how old I am, so you're looking for someone in my age group but no
Your email, aside from being illegal and offensive, is also typed very
poorly. Job applicants are generally expected to be professional and have
well written cover letters, even in a profession where it's not necessary.
It may be a good idea to have someone proof read your emails....maybe use
sentence... and not periods...for email.
I ordered a Raspberry Pi about 6 weeks ago, completely forgot about it, then yesterday I found an email I had ignored from the seller (they had been sending some newsletters that I keep forgetting to unsubscribe from, so I assumed it was one of those) saying it had shipped and would arrive today. Now I have it, and am getting ready to install Raspbmc[^] and try to make a home media system from it (nothing fancy, I just want something that supports more formats than my current media system, commonly known as an "Xbox 360"). If it proves capable, I'll have to go out and buy a NAS and a dedicated SD card (just planning on using my tablet's for now, not like my tablet is using it).
Websense is software that allows the net Nazis at your company to block certain websites. I was just browsing this list, which I think are the types of sites Websense can block. If you expand "Baseline Categories", you can see the categories, and many of them make sense (e.g., adult material, drugs, games, gambling, spam, and so on).
However, I found some of the categories a little interesting, including:
Abortion (which is split into pro-life and pro-choice, so presumably you could block just a certain perspective)
News and Media
It seems Websense would be a wonderful tool for oppression!
Years ago, I worked on a project which sent traffic through a web filtering appliance (our goal was to avoid sites with high incidents of zero-day viruses and to help our customers not get sued for sexual harassment.) Some of the categories were extremely specific. The one that I still remember is "Bomb making."
Incidentally, we also had fun finding out how some sites were categorized. Due to overlapping definitions and clearly some errors, the results were sometimes funny. For example, a Christian dating site a coworker sometimes used got categorized as adult material (though other dating sites were let through.)
To which you can also add religion. I was twice blocked by the NetNazi on this category, once visiting such subversive materials as www.durhamcathedral.co.uk/[^] to find the date of a concert I wanted to attend and the other was trying to get an Islamic calendar to make sure the missus & I didn't book a holiday in Jordan during Ramadan. At one point it also blocked the whole of the BBC Arabic news site which I was trying to access to try and improve my reading skills, can't remember why, it might have been "Foreign Language", the Farsi version worked though.
My tablet just popped up a reminder "Sue (Michelle work) birthday" so I reminded Herself that she needs to get a card for her boss.
Of course she wants to know how I knew...
So I told her that Google knows who I am (true) and that we are together. So it looked at her NI code and worked out where she worked, then found her bosses name, and searched the internet to find out her birthday and sent me a reminder because it can't contact her directly.
With a straight face.
She is now getting kinda paranoid and doesn't believe the truth: I put an annual reminder in my system last year when she asked me to get a card for Sue.
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
I managed to find a place that has a small supply of 84 proof Maker's 1.75L. They aren't allowing online sales of it, nor are they jacking up the price. I bought 3 for myself this weekend. My question is, if anyone is really interested, I could sell some bottles. I plan to make a run to buy more, and could pick up extra. I don't want to gouge myself, just help out any big fans of bourbon while making it work my time.
Fans reacted negatively to the idea, not the taste, as it was never widely released. Most opinions/reviews I read seemed to happen around the time of the reversal.
It's not like New Coke or Coke II or Crystal Pepsi for a few reasons:
1) If unopened, it will stay drinkable, it doesn't age any further, bourbon keeps the taste that it had during bottling.
2) It was never widely release and was always difficult to find. These colas were widely distributed for a longer time.
3) It was lowered to the lowest proof that their tasters said wouldn't be discernible. Many bloggers, writers, and reviewers want to see if they have discerning enough taste to notice in a side by side comparison.
Once again, sorry if it sounds spammy. I'm not looking to sell my 3 bottles, just seeing if anyone was looking for one.
I tried last night to drink scotch. I bought little bottles of JW Black, Dewars White, and Chivas. I could understand the appeal of JW (it had a sweeter finish that I'm used to), but the other 2 were horrible to me. I don't think it will be my drink of choice, but I'm trying to pick out my wedding booze.
Personally, I won't drink Dewars or Chivas (unless there's nothing else available, including beer). Both seem rough to me. JW Black is pretty good, and the red is tolerable. My day to day favorite is Clan MacGregor; it's cheap, but but very tasty for its price range. For good stuff, I prefer Glenlivet, but I hide that from company.
