    For those of you that have been living under a rock the last six months, final plans for AMB-ID are
    in the works. Most of you are probably in the loop already but if you aren't, too bad. But it's not
    too late, If you want to come, submit your application and statement of qualifications to am-b for
    review. Dates are July 11--13 in McCall Idaho.

    If you are really clueless as to this is all about, http://bbauer.gomen.org/idaho/ was last year's
    get together. Penny

    Looks like a nice time from the video that's posted there. The finesse and ease with which JD(?)
    moves over that boulder makes me envious.

    Where do I sign up? I've been riding mountain bikes seriously for ... well never, but I've been
    riding them for fun for 14 years. I only have one that works right now, but that could change later
    today, unless I get lucky and don't break this one as well. I can fix most anything on a bike, very
    often 2 or 3 times before I really get it right. Up until then it is just practice. I own some GRS,
    but none that look like a riding advertisement. I do own a road bike as well, but I suck at that.

    How did I do?

    right here, just get yourself to the middle of Idaho mid July. ;-)

    Oh, and submit that statement of qualifications.

    Looks like it would be a blast, but alas, my car would not go that far, and a plane ticket it out
    of the question at the moment. Guess i have something to look forward to possibly next year. maybe
    by then i will have some padded bike shorts and a seat that fits a little better (the El Cheepo
    bell is ok, but on long rides it gets a little sore, could be just the seams in my shorts though).
    all in good time, right. Got a hot tip on a computer tech job at the local university. $24K/yr
    salary sounds pretty good, and i have most of the knowledge needed (except for macs, never used or
    worked on a mac, though i have been told, if i learned Linux, a mac would be nothing). I applied
    for this job once before and got rejected (not even an interview), so i haven't exactly got high
    hopes for it.

    If you can diagnose simple hardware issues and install/configure Windows then you've got all the
    skills you need for a $12/hr tech job. They should be willing to do on-the-job training for Macs. If
    they expect more than that then they're just milking the the tech bust for cheap labor. Good luck,
    you should be more than qualified.

    Do you have any sort of college/tech school diploma? If not, get one, preferably one with some
    practical application. Your job prospects will brighten more than you would believe. I got my degree
    in chemistry and with one year of experience, I am making $35 - 40k a year, depending on how much
    overtime I get. I have keys to the building, I set my own hours, and I don't punch a time clock. I
    turn in my hours at the end of the week on a hand written time card, and the personnel department
    pays me whatever I write down. Before I went to college, I temped on and off for 3 years and I
    thought that $11/hr was respectable money. Of course, it was worth a little bit more back then, but
    you get the idea.

    I would also advise you to move to a larger town, if you are out in the boonies somewhere,
    preferably one that is growing, not declining. Big towns have vastly more numerous job opportunities
    for those who have a clean police record and a decent work history. Be competent and reliable, and
    you should go far.

    I was going to ask you about that. I'm still working on the boss, I hope to get her approval. Right
    now it is just about the money, that and I leave for Alaska 2 weeks later.

    Have fun.

    Peace, Bill The mind serves properly as a window glass rather than as a reflector, that is, the mind
    should give an immediate view instead of an interpretation of the world.

    Do you think you could convince them to at least move the dead washer and tow truck off the lawn?

    Yeah, it'll improve the view of both the dump and the auto salvage yard.
