Woot, woot!

I've got a job! :D The location is unpleasant (some filing centre up in Westmount, by the Space Science Centre Odyssium Telus World of Science), but I have DATS for that, and the work itself is all right: filing and clerical work at Service Canada. And, of course, having a job the week after school ends is quite all right by me, because it means I get to go to Lacuna Coil, can probably afford a new system in time to actually go to Fragapalooza for once, and can still save some money for school in the fall.

Another personality quiz. Blame cybermancy for this one:

They're calling it the Telus World of Science, now? Is there anything Telus doesn't own anymore? And do they really need to advertise anymore?

Also, congrats on the job, of course. :)

Telus needs to advertise like an addict needs their fix. It's not as much that they actually need the publicity as that their PR people need to justify their existence.

Kudos on the job man!!

As for TWOS, its been TWOS for a while now... when we rendered the gallery for them a year and a half ago it was called TWOS...

For Fragga, think I'll join you; on the system; a) we get a decent discount with dell, as I think you're looking for a laptop. and b) if you don't have said system by Fragga (and remember how long laptops take to build and ship) I can pull some strings and likely borrow one of the office systems for you - probally one of the 2010s.

Rumor's been out of the city for a while, so I suppose he was a bit behind. :D

As for system and Fraga: yes, I was looking at one of those Dell laptops, probably the 1710 (1210 if I'm feeling careful WRT money, but frankly I'd rather overspend than underspend if both are an option). I find this "discount" idea intriguing and will have to subscribe to your newsletter.

The 1210 is nifty, but if I might make the suggestion of shear screen size, the 1710 is probally what you're after.

We're currently in the 8% range give or take, depending on the person we talk to. Not much, but if you buy it through us we earn more 'points' or the like, so its sort of a win-win. Or you could try talking Tommy into using his discount :P

Yeah, the 1710's a good compromise, I think, so that's probably what I'll go for. Plus, I can get it in black. :D

I suspect Tommy's discount is on cooldown right now, but I'll talk to him anyway. Still, win-win situations are good, and given the build/ship times you mentioned I'll probably want to get on this as soon as I can.

Congrats on your new slavery....errr, job.
Also, curse you for reminding me that I don't get to go to Lacuna Coil... I got the dates mixed up, and I'm out in BC that week :(
