@GnomeSlice Here, have a free tip: You can use Microsoft Office and Photoshop. This opens up an entire universe of not much above minimum wage administrative and office jobs to you that will beat flipping burgers at McDonalds.
Find a temp agency in your area and go talk to them. You'll get to try out a whole bunch of different jobs and office environments and get a feel for what you like.
@GnomeSlice The company hiring you pays the temp agency X. The temp Agency then pays you salary Y, which is substantially less than X. This is worth it for the company hiring you because they don't need to spend the money on the job seach.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Argh. That may or may not happen, my Dad doesn't want to pay for another semester because they I'm not really getting anything out of it, and my mother wants me to switch to a music program.

I was running a skill setup without Golemancy, so I was wondering where they could come from. The run ended quickly enough to not let me investigate fu...
OMFG. Disney actually wants to have Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford in their old roles in the new Star Wars movie. I so hope that's only as cameos, else it'll be "SW7: Attack on the Nursing Home" or something like that.
I spent a couple more hours fixing minor issues, little things that weren't critical. After about twelve hours, I say, "Screw it. Anything not done isn't important enough to spend time on right now. I'll fix it tomorrow."
By the time I get home, I get a call from management going, "Get back here and fix this."
As readers, ads might direct us to a valuable service or product, or they might just be a distracting annoyance. For publishers, ads can provide an added service to their audience and a significant revenue stream, but only if the ads reach their intended audience, and that audience interacts with them. For the advertisers themselves, ads can be a great way to generate sales or awareness, but only if people don’t ignore them. And therein lies the problem: lousy targeting, over-exposure and distracting ad formats have made people prone to do just that, which significantly reduces the benefits to all involved. …
I'm having an issue. Windows XP, running the latest Chrome 23 build. I'm using Flash 11.5 built into Chrome (Pepper Flash). It runs horribly. Chrome 22 did not have this issue as far as I recall. What a shame.
