Shortly after I posted this - the one single point of failure I can't control, my ISP - went down. Evidently it was a big outage, as a coworker from my old place texted asking if I could help fix *their* internet - and we use the same ISP. 

Anyhow... looks like we're back, for now.

But evidently, none of you are. :)

Some of us are still lurking from time to time.

{Raises bony hand} I'm still here. And dead.

Speaking of necromancy, I've hopefully raised my dead company from the grave. It only needed a $30,000 Raise Dead spell, but it should turn a profit at the first sales event, PAX West in Seattle. Last time we were there, we grossed 37k, so if we can match that (or even just break 25k) we'll pay off our first investor and he'll front the money for a second event. And bingo, it's rolling again. Once the business is rolling I'll be able to scale it like it deserved, and I have much better marketing skills and a team to help it scale.

This is the way, my destitute friends.

Make or do something people want more than their money. Tell them about it. Accept the money when they beg you to trade.

Or you can complain four hours a day on Facebook like my Canadian socialist friend. And nothing gets better in your life or the world. But you're morally superior, so you can cling to that. And if anything ever starts to disprove you're the Übermensch, fight it with everything you've got. Because you have nothing to keep your serotonin level up except your imagination. And if that fails, you will feel worthless. And you'll have nothing to disprove it. And that would be a tragedy.

So do something valuable for other people. They'll reward you.

Well, a couple of posts here and there are all it takes to keep this thing on life support. It only costs me about $15 a month plus incidentals - and the thing runs itself. That is part of the problem though - it is so rock solid if it breaks, it is going to take me a lot of effort to bring it back - because I've gotten completely rusty on my Linux once again. 

 

So, you found an investor to front the $30k? You really do $30k+ of sales in one event selling gaming cards? That is crazy! Have you ever considered doing an online store? 


As far as your Facebook friend - my feeling there is that this guy is annoying enough that you're bitching about him here on WallofHate - which is exactly why WallofHate exists - to give you an alternative from visiting Facebook and engaging with the toxic douchebags that are rampant on that site. If you notice - I do hit and run posts there now. I post content - I avoid interacting with people directly. There is no reward in the experience.

Had some rooms that were at max # of messages and not scrolling for some reason. Fixed that. I think this should probably have beneficial impact on the entire BBS as it should be dealing with a far smaller database of messages now. We'll see.

Yeah, I'm expecting to sell out which will gain us 70k revenue, bringing us to like 25-30k profit.  If we get to the point we can bankroll ourselves and grow, I could do this convention circuit full time and never have to get written up at work for doing my job correctly again.

In the meantime, you know anyone who's hiring?  I refuse to stay where I get written up for doing my job.

Elaborate. What exactly happened with the write up?

What kind of work are you looking for? I can keep my ears open...
