So you are expecting people in here to give you job eh? Artman@_@ ?

You know...sometimes it's not really necessary to list all the software that you know....people may think you only know very little on each one.

Trust me. I had been there.

ps.Why did you include those internet browser on your resume?

From the current responses I see I'm grasping at staws? I am considering relocating for a good job so I thought with all the various locations people are from here may help. Plus I'm bored...

Never had that occur. This resume has done well for me. I should probably do a rewrite soon though.

I've had weirder things happen...as you have too.

[quote]<strong>ps.Why did you include those internet browser on your resume?</strong><hr></blockquote>

In web design and developement that's important to some. As far as layout and multimedia content plus other issues.

Although some may question your strategy ... I find iGrandparents.com is a nicely counter balanced by the flying dildos on Artshack.com

egads, I didn't know you attended U of Texas groverat.

I was at the game against A&M last weekend while visiting some family and friends in Texas - wearing maroon! yeah, yeah I know Aggies lost.

I'm not a huge fan of either team, or college football in general for that matter. Fun game though. Great rivalry.

Apologies for going off topic Artman - good luck with the job hunt though. If you're planning a move to NYC (highly unlikely and probably even less worthwhile) let me know I'll put out a feeler or two for ya.

Seb, I just might be. If things don't turn around here in the next few months I'll probably start looking up there. Know of any good apartment deals?

Unfortunately, good apartment deals seem to be relatively unheard of around here.

I'd avoid Manhattan at first. It's very expensive for what you get and, as cool as living in Manhattan could be, it overwhelms a lot of people who move here. I'd start off in Brooklyn or Queens where the rent is a little cheaper. You'd have to commute into the city but public transportation is decent, quick and fairly cheap ($1.50 one way for the subway train). You could always get a Segway and paint it up with some of your artwork. That would make you some new friends anyways.

CommonSense: great site!
If you are still webmaster, you might add 'PocketLinux' to the list of PocketPC OS alternatives. If I had an iPaq (or a use for one) I'd run Gnome on it.

Anyway, I was twice the webmaster for a magazine called artbyte. Their site now blows, which doesn't surprise me, but the last reincarnation I did should be at <a href="http://www.stimuli.ca/artbyte" target="_blank">http://www.stimuli.ca/artbyte</A>
No, the bazaar cannot satisfy users. Neither can the cathedral. Nothing can satisfy users, because software is written to enable rather than satisfy, and because most users are mewling malcontents...
