My roommate, Rob,
had mentioned a job openening
for third shift (midnight to 8:00 am) at the company he works for, The
Company (that's not the real name of the company, and in no way refers to
The Company from Alien,
but I wish to refrain
from actually naming
the company, in tradition of other online
journalists doing the same. Primarily it's to protect themselves (and
myself) from possible retribution from The Company). I whipped up a resumé
is fairly plain I admit). I told Rob about it last night and he said he
would mention it to E, the head of the department with the job opening.
Human Resources from The Company called me this morning at like 9:30 am to
give me an initial interview. I managed to talk my way through it and they
said they'd get back to me in a few days.
One hour later they called back, wanting to schedule an interview Wednesday
at 9:00 am.
I manged to get it pushed back to 10:00 am.
Why such insane hours, I don't know.
When I talked to Rob
about HR calling me and I
already had a job interview he was somewhat amazed. Rob thought I was way
over-qualified for the job in question and that I might not get hired, but
that E, the manager of the department, said he didn't care. He wants me for
I have the feeling I have the job already.
I set up my client Chris with DNS on his server so he can handle DNS
himself and went through the trouble of re-registering his domains to use
his server for primary, and his hosting company for secondary.
But it seems that his hosting company, being a Microsoft Solutions Company
that it is, uses Microsoft for everything, including DNS.
And the Microsoft DNS server can't (or won't, which amounts to the same
thing really) do secondary DNS. And of course they add primary records with
the wrong IP address for his domains.
That kind of defeats the purpose of them handing secondary DNS if they can't
query my client's DNS server for the info.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
