Is that some sort of car made out of oranges, lemons, and limes?

Hmm... any good web developers willing to work with us for 30 - 60 days... soon?

Oh, I should give some more detail I guess.

Our web development currently involves working with IIS aspx pages, SQL Server database (although we have a lot of incentive to move to Postgres), and building things that send and receive information from engines I create in C++.

We have quite a bit of work to accomplish before April this year, and need help.

So I tried very hard to leave my ex-boss on good terms, despite leaving her for a competitor who she really dislikes (and is my adopted little sister).

I explained to her over and over that I would stay if I weren't sick, but I couldn't keep up with the hours. (I'm currently not working at all, but am hoping to go up to 5 hours a week. I had been working closer to 30/week, and it was just way way too much for me b/c of the fibromyalgia)

I apologized over and over again.

And she said we were cool.

And now I heard that she trashed me to a potential client.

Business-wise, it's unprofessional, but I don't give a shit.

But on a personal level, I'm really really hurt. She said she was my friend, and she trashed me.

Unfortunately for her, the potential client probably heard something other than what

That's awful... but at least now you know what kind of friend she is.

I really hate that, where someone talks you up when you're there, says everythings fine, then trashes you afterwords.  And everyone bloody does it.  Really though, just ignore it, if you used the standard mechanisms to try to leave on good terms, and they don't get over that, that's really their problem more than yours.  And from my experience, people are going to get over things, rather quickly, so just let them vent as much as they want beforehand.  

I can't say I don't do that from time to time, where someone is mentioned and I say that I'm personally not a fan or whatever, but I don't normally talk those people up either.  Honestly though, even that is generally none of my business.

Gads... this just looks weird to me:

You can't tell from the web page, but I'm one of the inventors listed for this patent.

I had to fire someone today. Thankfully this is not something that happens often, but it's extremely stressful. It's not a pleasant thing to have to sharply alter the course of someone's life.

Time to go have another cup of coffee -- because the Keurig machine doesn't appear to have any Scotch.

Very cool, Fleeb!  And actually, your name is there plain as day.  :-)

IG, much less cool.  Definitely not on the higher side of life.  :-(

Ugh... sucks to fire people. At least, if you're not an asshole.

The one and only time I got laid-off from a job, my manager looked like he was about to tear up when he broke the news to me.

I don't envy anyone the task of having to let someone go from a job.

I feel so manic at work today that I want to let out a loud scream (I won't, but I have an urge to do so).  I guess this would fit in a room other than the workplace :-)

There's a difference between laying off someone and firing them.

Same result.. But sometimes for different reasons.
