5/27    i need a job!  if anyone knows of any sort of clerical/administrative
        (or really anything else non-programmer, non-sysadmin, non-sales/mktg)
        jobs in the east bay or sf, please let me know...       -lila
        \_ There's an opening at the local Wendy's, want me to inquire?
        \_ Why are you asking for a nontechnical job on Soda? Do we look
          like a bunch of nontechnical people? When did Soda become
           \_ technical people work at companies that also employ other people
              \_ Yeah, riight, when was the last time you went over to the
                 secretary pool and asked them how they were doing in terms
                 of staffing? Geeks hang out with geeks, sales with sales, etc.
                 That's why there are depts.
                 \_ depends on size of company ... when I was at a small
                    company, I mixed with and dated hot sales and
                    accounting girls.  now i am at 100k company, and
                    things are bad.
                    \_ Sales&mktg... aaah... how I miss those days....
        \_ Are you deliberately trying to under-employ yourself?  A BA
           degress from berkeley doing clerical work?
           \_ my degree doesn't actually qualify me for anything...  i don't
              know what i really want to do yet, but i do need an income.
              \_ Perhaps you missed the point of your Berkeley degree.  Very
                 few Cal degrees qualify the student for any particular
                 trade.  This isn't a trade school.  You've (hopefully) been
                 taught to think and how to learn so you can do almost anything
                 that comes your way.  Meta skills are superior to specific
                 trade skills over the course of your life.  Now stop pissing
                 away your Cal degree on shitty retail and clerical work and
                 diminishing the value of everyone else's degrees.  Go figure
                 it out and get a real job.
           \_ sometimes, a job is just a job.
           \_ need I mention the Physics PHD's formerly from JDSU that I work
              with in airport security? -ERic
                \_ you work in airport security?
                  \_ unfortunately, yes.

5/27    Does anyone here have a TMobile cell phone plan? In general have
        they been reliable for you?
        \_ they use Cingular towers but have their own capacity

5/27    Are your options worth something now?  Are you cashing out?
        \_ No.  If I could.
2003/5/28 [Computer/SW/Languages/Perl] UID:28569 Activity:nil
5/27    In Perl, how would I print a number with leading zeros if it's less
        than a certain number of digits (eg. I want 3 digits, so '2' = '002')
        I can do it an ugly way (have a bunch of 'if length' statements), but
        I'm wondering if there's a more elegant way.
        \_ printf "03%d",$variable;
           \_ always giving it away....  how will they ever learn?
