Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Greetings one and all!
I haven't been posting in iwethey for quite some time... life, unfortunately, has been very distracting over the last few years. I was diagnosed with [link|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Essential_tremor|Essential Tremor] a couple years back, I lost my job in April (yay downsizing!) and have been overqualified ever since. I am now attempting to learn PHP, Javascript, and mysql to give me a little more control over my website and to widen my job search a bit (since this whole web 2.0 thing seems to be an exploitable craze as far as the job market goes).

Anyway, since I've been lurking and posting again I thought it only polite to say hi.

Hi!

unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a lot of need for Technical Writers with 15 years of experience in the Albany, NY area. And when there is, they also want people with programming experience, which has worked pretty solidly against me so far. *sigh*

Still hittin' those bricks, though. If I could figure out how to get freelance writing work as a tech writer, I'd go ahead and do that. I'm not particularly good at networking, though...

New Hoy!
Or rather, re-hoy!

Glad to see you back, Chris. Sorry to hear about the crap, though.

I keep following your strip, and I'm glad you've managed to keep that going with all the other stuff going on.

I [link|/forums/render/content/show?contentid=232292|know how that goes] with weird neurological syndromes. At least you know what it is and you can get on with life.

I can't help much with the PHP, but feel free to shoot any Javascript questions this way.
Regards,

New Tremors? I've got that
It gets worse as I get older and seems to be genetic. My dad could barely open a bottle of aspirin by the time he was 65.

Annoying as hell but not quite incapacitating. Oddly enough, my dad used to love to build and paint tiny little models, damned if I know how he did it.

New I was actually relieved to get the diagnosis...
... because both MS and Parkinsons runs in my family.

Compared to both of them, ET is practically a walk in the park.

- Edward Young
New Not a very *straight* walk, but a walk nonetheless
I'm going to hell for that.

Althought ET usually affects only the hands, arms, and sometimes the vocal chords. It affects the legs very rarely.

New Welcome back
Again.

I had a sysadmin work for me who has it. Nice guy, really smart.
He used to be in the military and was a helicopter pilot.

So on weekends, he would rent a helicopter, and fly around.

Can you imagine the look on the face of the rental guy when he handed him the keys to the copter (the multi-million dollar copter) and he was shaking so bad he missed them?

Didn't slow him down at all.
New knew a fellow named blinky who had it
flew bombers in WW2 european theatre, came home with it.
thanx,
bill

New My SWMBO also has it.
My experience (3rd party though it is) confirms what Todd said.

Imric's Tips for Living
  • Paranoia Is a Survival Trait
  • Pessimists are never disappointed - but sometimes, if they are very lucky, they can be pleasantly surprised...
  • Even though everyone is out to get you, it doesn't matter unless you let them win.


Nothing is as simple as it seems in the beginning,
As hopeless as it seems in the middle,
Or as finished as it seems in the end.
 
 
New Welcome back!
I'll keep you in my prayers and thoughts that you find something soon!

Sorry about life's challanges that you are facing.

Don't neglect looking in the Schenectady area as well. It may be a long commute, but they used to have technical activity.

New Hi. :-)
It's always good to see you posting. Even when you've been crabby, I've enjoyed your contributions.

Sorry about the ETs. :-(

I assume you've looked at [link|http://www.rpi.edu/dept/hr/careers.html|RPI] and other [link|http://www.uscollegesearch.org/troy-new-york-colleges.html|local institutions]?

Best of luck with the search!

Cheers,
Scott.
New welcome back...

Have fun,

New Hola -
Love the artwork progression, too - snazzy without being Tooo technodazzly.
DNA suppositions can be scary because they seem so.. so.. programmed. But I guess I've heard enough contrary stories, to suggest a healthy dose/mantra of Naaahhhh, in the psyche (?)

New Welcome back!
New Re: Greetings one and all!
Welcome back. I am fighting heart disease and other things myself. I am trying to learn new technologies as well. I hope that you do find a good job, and I hope the IT jobs are coming back to our economy. It is good to see you making it back and with a positive outlook on life. Keep up the research, it will pay off one day.
