    Email from a woman I rather like: "...your choice who, but my money is on me… take me off and see what happens."

    When I showed up to interview for the new job, the CEO walked into the reception area in Birkenstocks, cargo shorts, and was half way through the process of putting a t shirt on as he was introducing himself. :rofl:

    Ah, the old chair to keyboard interface. I had a coworker in tech support who used to tell our customers that. I was always amazed he could get away with it, but maybe I shouldn't have been.

    The last time I had an interview with a startup the first words out of the interviewers mouth were "take off that jacket and tie and grab a beer from the fridge."

    Awesome.


    This place has been around for quite a while, but still has a lot of that vibe to it. No beer was offered, but I was told before hand not to wear a tie or even a button down shirt. I wore a polo and slacks and was the best dressed person in there by a mile.

    Email from a coworker to a customer:

    "Also if you send a request is sent over the weekend, it will not receive an attention until Monday 7am. Other than the hours anytime there is an issue that needs immediate attention always call out 800#, which 1.800.<obfuscated >"

    What language is that?

    Full of win.

    Our CEO is up here this week and is currently set up on the couch since all the desks are taken. I don't think he is sleeping there, just working (maybe napping). But it is comfy.

    Yeah, after 20 years of corporate america I ended up at a start up. Gotta love it on Fridays when at 4:30 the bell sounds and everyone goes to "wine thirty". Luckily, there is also a beer fridge so people like me are covered. Usually guinness or some other good beer. Plus a fridge full of sandwich fixin's means I don't have to ride my bike to go get lunch. And unlimited snacks. Why was I a chump for so long?

    We got 2 rows of classic theater seats that are currently getting redone. We have a projector around the corner celling mounted and the seats will be floor mounted there for meetings and movie time.

    As they were purchased (craigs list $5 a seat)


    The Epson slim line projector does a great job, I am thinking of getting something like it for my next place rather than a tv.

    I clearly stated "something like it" as I have seen the price and would not spend that much. I was looking at a few in the sub $500 range that seemed to have a solid picture. If I can get something that does larger than 70" and half the price of my plasma (my 50" was $1000), then it's a go.

    But the Epson does seem to do a good job rendering the desktop during meetings, but I haven't seen it play a movie yet.
