Working from Home

Today, for the first time, I am working from home. I get to site in my chair, in my room, on my computer, and get payed to do my programming remotely.

Yeah, life is good.

Ah, the bleak mid-winter! Our Hyde Park Fixer-Upper’s indoor pbimlung reminds me of a Ruidoso outhouse at Christmas. At least we have the Exotica Project, (is there an internet yet in Ruidoso?). Stay warm, compadre, and come see the big city where Margaritae spring from every corner, and Uncle Craig springs for the Margaritae. Just stumbled upon a copy of Desire Develops ans Edge , and am finally learning something after my half-life without it now you hip me to Broadcast ! Keep keeping me young, and perhaps I’ll survive my 25th SXSW. Come Play Craig

We’ve got a good start going already — feel free to check it out (by following the link in my name). Company name is Others Online. You’re absolutely right that we bump up against serious trust issues if we don’t do it right, and I’d appreciate your feedback on how we’re doing so far. We basically show you the “auto-tags” we’re associating to your profile, and allow you block, delete or turn off auto-tagging altogether.And by profile, I was referring to a user profile that someone else creates, not what users create — I’m referring to how all online media companies are profiling each of us, and we actually have no visibility to, nor control over that profile. We’re doing the same thing, but providing full transparency. I suspect if Google showed the public all the information they have on each of us, it would completely freak us and potentially ruin them. Musn’t frighten the bunnies!

You guys are all so fucking great — thanks for all the comments & the like. Let me see if I can run through a few of em real quick while I have a sec:In reverse order (as the DJs on KJHK used to always say)Anonymous: Max is right, that song was off the “Spooky Halloween” album (a record that was actually based on an earlier LP called “Halloween Songs to Tickle Your Funny Bone” that had a slightly different track lineup & some altered edits) & you can check it out on my other site (it’s almost at the very bottom). I was actually planning on posting both albums next week, so if you wanna sit tight you can hear it again plenty soon. Phillips: That Harold’s Bar Pedro show was REALLY fun! I always love Killer Dreamer, and Jacob & I were actually quoting some lines from after the show! Plus Kid Kevin & I usually talk “Return of the Living Dead” zombie crap! The two worlds collide! Anyway, I’m the dude who DOESN’T play any guitar solos, and probably jumps around too much.Ben (you rotten xenophobe you), that organization stuff was an all-consuming thing that bit me a few years back & it’s TOTALLY paid off. I even put my giant flyer collection (dating back to around 1982) in COMPLETE, OBSESSIVE, CHRONOLOGICAL order — now I can tell you EXACTLY who played at the Foolkiller Hall in Kansas City, MO on Sat June 23th of 1984 (it was the Freeze from Boston). SPEAKING of those flyers, I plan on scanning ‘em all in for a website someday actually, but I have like 1,200 or something so it’ll take a lot of time to do it right. You know, maybe the organization was actually 100% stupid since all it REALLY did was make my brian come up with MORE STUPID SHIT to do with any imaginary “spare time”, but I fully recommend it all the same. Do it.Other Anonymous poster: yeah, the cat you see is still as live as can be, and a totally cool chick at 17 years old. She sits on that monitor half the damn day (it’s why I can’t trade the CRT in for a second LCD actually; she needs a platform to hang out on), and is watching me type this.Paul: I’ve been doing the same thing w/ Night Gallery/ Night Stalker episodes lately. Man, I knew he was good, but I’d honestly forgotten HOW good Kolchak was as a character (and how spotty some Night Gallery episodes were. The NG intro still creeps me out though; that was often the prelude to nightmares for me as a kid. That & that damn commercial for the movie “Magic” that had the dummy reciting the rhyme).Dave: those things to the left are actually not my record, but magazines & other paper ephemera (it’s my graphic design morgue). I have a lot of albums, but not quite that much space anymore — physically they’re further along down the side. Projects like this (getting as much of this weird cool shit back into some kind of circulation so I don’t have to be so precious about it all) is all part of my goal to trim my “stuff” down actually. All the hard drives next to that G5 are getting loaded up with digital versions of the shit I’ve been carting around forever so that I can better convince myself to get rid of things here & there. We’ll see if it works. Everyone else: thanks again for all the kind words. I’m looking fwd to coming back with a bunch of stuff soon!

For me, choosing a meidacl specialty is easy. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to work as a Dermatologist Tech prior to moving to Alaska. What an amazing field! No two cases are the same and more than one type of procedure can be performed in a day. Working for a dermatologist provides the benefits of both a private office setting and hours along with the experience of surgeries and unique treatments. Cyst removals and cancer treatments became the most interesting procedures to me and I can not wait to get back into the field!There are not many positions or specialties I would turn down when it comes to the meidacl field. If I had to pick one, however, it would have to be gynecology. Why would this be the field I turn down? I am honestly not sure. I must be lacking the gene the would cause me to be interested in the subject! For whatever reason I would choose to work anywhere else before choosing gynecology. Specialty clinics are like sushi I guess. How do you know you don’t like it if you’ve never tried it?!

Wonderful website you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics talked
about in this article? I’d really like to be a
part of online community where I can get suggestions from other
experienced individuals that share the same interest.
If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Kudos!

Greetings! Quick question that’s totally off topic.
Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird
when viewing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.
If you have any recommendations, please share.
Appreciate it!

Right now it seems like Expression Engine is the top blogging platform available right now.
(from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
