That's unreal. Isn't that more than VW is facing for their whole fiasco?

Well, okay. Sure.
The offer with the other company never came -- new ownership changed the hiring emphasis and the position I interviewed for is no longer open. Might be in the future, but not now. Kind of a bummer, but I ended up getting some extra help hired for my current dept, and a very healthy raise to boot.

But now I'm kind of addicted to job-hunting. Updated my resume, working on a couple additional certifications, have some automatic job search notifications set up, etc. This is kind of weird for me -- I've been at this job for 3 years, and stayed at my previous job for 8 years. Now that I have a few marketable skills, I'm feeling the pull of finding that next big jump in salary and responsibility.

Maybe part of it is the fact that I stayed 8 years at the bookstore -- now I'm feeling the pressure of trying to catch up on time I wasted in a dead-end job. Anyone else feeling a bit consumed with finding that next job?

Finally got around to putting the "*** lights" up today.
I'm far more impressed with the build quality than the light output. The floor has white overspray from the spray gun on it, so it looks brighter than it is..


This floor is getting epoxy coated tomorrow, management decided to contract it out, which is fine for me. I get to stand around and drink coffee while i watch someone else work, which is nice, for a change.
Will report back once that gets done since i'm sure that will help.

Management also decided to buy i think 30 "big *** lights" high bays for the plant. Those "should" be installed over Christmas. I'm almost positive they're all going over our process line though, which should negatively impact our cost of quality. haha

The stomach is suppose to close. There is a ridge thats suppose to close. on mine that ridge was damaged by H. Pylori bacteria.

Hope you get well soon, that sounds nuts about the bacteria damage.

Yesterday I attended a Winding Road Racing presentation at their local shop in Austin. Cool stuff but also an eye opener for wheel-wheel racing, spec miata, HPDE, & track days

I realized that I started with the wrong miata entirely if I ever wanted to get to do track time for cheap. Guessing I will keep the MSM a street vehicle and limit my power goals a bit in favor of reliability. Concealer's "Gross" build came to mind... I would follow that same recipe if possible.

Laparoscopic, I assume?

Fortunately, that area heals pretty quickly. Pain should be gone within a couple of days, aside from getting in and out of bed, bending over, etc.

Prost.

I had my own episode with Helicobacter Pylori back in 2002 or 2003.
One major symptom is acute and wall paper peeling halitosis, and it was diagnosed very early because of that.
I was given "experimental" drugs - the tablets were the size of silver dollars - and it just went away in the space of a week.
Never had it since.

On a side note, horses get them, too.

Any FoxPro junkies on here? Not Visual FoxPro, old-school DOS FoxPro.

I've got a fairly large DBF (about 15 MB) that I want to convert / export to something more portable, like a CSV or an XLS. I can open it in Notepad++ and see that all the data is there in mostly plain-text, but I need it to come out formatted such that I can ultimately get into Excel with each field in its own column.

I would imagine all FoxPro code would be in italic.

Python is my go to language for things like that. Someone probably has a python package for excel and foxpro

https://pypi.python.org/pypi/dbf

http://xlsxwriter.readthedocs.io/

That was 2 minutes of searching. I'm sure someone has even written a script already.

Stack overflow of course

Re: Surgery stuff. I've watched a bunch of ortho procedures and some other cool ****. It's no surprise to me anymore that folks are sore after being on the receiving or performing end of some of those surgeries...

Hope you get better soon!

I have an S5 on Cyanogenmod. Having all sorts of shitty issues with wifi/data connectivity. It's so annoying.

Yes. Unfortunately the biggest problem isnt the skin cuts. It's the stomach wrapped around the esophagus. Currently if i drink something it goes down very slowly so i have to be careful for it not to go into my lungs. I'm on a soup only diet and even thats difficult to eat.
Obviously coughing is painful.

So yeah so far so good other than that.

Turns out I was assuming that the problem was much more complex than it actually is:

Apathy, laziness, and a general lack of interest in pony-related stuff of late.

By any reasonable definition, whiskey is a kind of soup.
