Unemployed

November 20, 2008


The awful economy has finally hit home. Razorfish was forced to lay off quite a few people to deal with hard times, and I was one of those people. Fortunately, they gave me a good severance package and then there’s unemployment pay if it comes to that. Being a responsible person, I have a large sum of money saved up for a rainy day, so I’m not freaked out yet. The worst part of being jobless is the idleness (and it’s only been one day). I’m currently trying to milk[

Meanwhile, I’m thinking of creating a new .Net blog where I post code examples of simple solutions to everyday problems (staying true to KISS – keep it simple, stupid). Rather than write paragraphs about complex and obscure solutions, I’d write fully functioning code examples that serve as a reference to common tasks. Maybe I’d mix in some Ruby, Rails, Perl, PHP, database, etc. It all depends on how long I’m idle.
