Well, another year goes by...how the time has flown this year. Another birthday in the can, and another year older...and maybe wiser...or not. Managed to get a few more posts in this year, and spent a reasonable time on the site this year as opposed to the last one. I am just hoping I find a new job this by the new year...sucks being out of work. Thanks for putting up with me all these years, its been a blast.

Well, another year in the can and another Bday. Took a lot longer to get a job again than I though it would take, but fortunately I am working again after a year and a half of being out of work. It was very frustrating looking for a job, online apps take a long (sometimes up to 2 hours each) to fill out and it sucks not to hear a single thing after spending all that time jumping through the hoops and answering the "no I am not crazy questions". Now I am thankful to have a job, although it is not what I was making before, but as I put it, my unemployment benefits had run out 6 months ago and something is better than nothing. Although I had been a saving packrat while unemployed it was close to exhausting my savings and things would have been very bleak indeed.

Although this year started out bad for me, at least I have a job and I am making money again. It is also nice getting out of the house again and interacting with people again, something I missed a lot during my time of unemployment. I am just glad that I got back to work, but I do feel bad for all the other people out there and hope they can get back to work like me. My motto is just keep pressing on and never give up looking for a job, the one I got had been one I applied at 3 months previously and had given up any hope of getting when I got a call out of the blue. I turned out the person they had hired back then for the position failed miserably and was let go, and I was the next one on the list.

I am thankful this year to go into the holidays with a job and have hopes of moving up eventually in my company, so my prospects are good and I have a lot to look forward to. I hope that anyone that reads this and is still unemployed reads this and doesn't give up and keeps going remembers, life is only as bad as you make it.

Thanks all, and hard to believe I made this thread over 8 years ago now....amazing how many things have changed since then, for both me and the computer field. I think I had just changed my rig from an Abit KG7 RAID to the Abit NF7S..RIP Abit. My current Core2 duo system is getting a little long in the tooth now, but I figure I can milk another year or so out of it. Going to miss my PS/2 ports and floppy drive though...maybe I can find me a PCIe card with PS/2 ports on it :D Will also miss my trusty PCI cards too, my trusty IDE card Ive been using for ages along with my Audigy 2.

So this is not "graduating" per se, but today marks my 8 year anniversary of joining these forums. Before that, I read TR and commented on the front page as an anonymous gerbil since about 2001. Not sure why I waited until '04 to join the forums, but there you go! :D

Only a month to the ten-year mark here, but I didn't participate in the forums regularly for several years. Closing in on 5k posts, though.
