There Is No Cat

As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly

You work sixteen tons and what do you get?

I am once again looking for work. The company I've been contracting to got evicted from its development office this afternoon for non-payment of rent. That goes right along with the non-payment of direct employees they've been doing for a couple of months and the non-payment of contractors since late last year. I suppose it's possible that the long-promised money that's has been "coming tomorrow" for the past month might actually show up tomorrow and I might have a job there, but I'm not holding my breath. The place has been shedding employees for weeks, with four leaving last week. That's a pretty big hit for a fifteen person company.

So anyway, if you need a webmaster or web designer/developer in New Jersey, let me know at the address at the bottom of the page or the one on my resume page. I wouldn't be uninterested in technical writing gigs, either.

This bad economy never lets up, does it? Sorry to hear about the job situation. Best of luck finding something quickly.

Yikes -- sorry to hear about the job. All fingers crossed hoping you find something good real soon.

wow! did *you* get paid for the work you did? I wasn't clear on if the "non-payment of contractors" included you.

No, I haven't been paid. They owe me for three months. It goes without saying that I'm not a happy camper at the moment.

Thanks for all the kind words, everyone.

hey, i'm sorry to hear about the job! i actually just hired a developer on a 12 month contract last week. sorry about that. the commute to new zealand would've been a bit of a bummer for you anyway :)

Yeah, 30 hours each way makes it tough to come home even on weekends. :-)

I am one of the 4 who left the company 2 weeks ago. Working with you, ralph, has been a great experience. As the readers of this blog must surely know, ralph is a brilliant guy, although I disagree with him on politics on occasion :) Hopefully, someday, our paths will cross again! Probably not at this company though!

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio

There used to be a cat
