9/13    Tech industry is back! I've never gotten so many recruiter calls
        since the dot-com. Good times man.
        \_ lies, damned lies, statistics, willie brown speaking, and motd
           "personal anecdotes"
        \_ "Silicon Valley tech stocks plunge along with the Nasdaq and Dow."
        \_ What the heck is in Akron, Ohio?!
        \_ I am being recruited by Facebook, Google and LinkedIn. It is like
           \_ No really, what the hell is in Akron, OH?
        \_ I am being recruited by Facebook, Google, LinkedIn. It is like
           1999 all over again.
           \_ Raytheon, Boeing, and Lockheed called me the other day, they
              also liked that I spoke mandarin. Wooo!
        \_ My little brother is a VMWare administrator. He just got an offer
           for $150K/year at a Fortune 500, which seems pretty good for what
           he does. Just two years ago he was making half that at Microsoft.
           \_ Crap, I am only making $200k/yr and I have 15 year experience.
              I am going to go ask for a raise.
              \_ Is that all?  My little sister is making $350K/yr in
                 industry and my son is starting a job at $500K/yr plus
                 \_ Im at 1.2 mil, 7 figure club, baybee!!
                    \_ my total compensation at HP was $34mil. I slept with
                       a hottie, left HP and now making even more $$$ working
                       with my buddy Larry!                     -Mark Hurd
                 \_ I really do make $200k/yr, including stock. It is not
                    that terribly uncommon.
                    \_ You made $200k in one year?  Or you made $200k every
                       \_ One year in the dotcom era, I made $350k but that
                          was by selling a bunch of pre-ipo options on
                          overinflated stock. I make $200k every year now
                          and only about $15k of that is in stock. I just
                          offered $150k/yr to a SA-type guy with 12 years of
                          experience and only an AA but he declined and
                          experience and only an AA degree but he declined and
                          decided to take an offer with Netflix making
                          $170k/yr. You should get a glassdoor account if
                          don't already have one.
                          don't already have one. Know any solid Unix
                          Sysadmin types who want to work in a big Silicon
                          Valley tech firm (not Google)?
                    \_ I really do make $500k/yr including also the occational
                       perk like an intern blowjob and an all expense paid
                       \_ Are you an executive?
                    \_ Larry Parker got me 2.1 Million.
        \_ Buy now or be priced out forever.
           \_ Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

9/13    Blah blah android blah, ok other than the bootjack stomp of the
        phone marketing crap of this, does anyone know where to find the old
        Android TCL scripting framework that was used for automating
        and controlling desktop apps (like mozilla for example). Thx.
