Another Day...

Well... For those of you who didn't know, already, I got laid off from Foxconn in February of this year and have been unemployed ever since. In that same time, however, I've completed my Master's Degree and have started several projects to try and build my resume.

One of these projects is Quick Mobile Weather (QM:W), a Windows Mobile Today Screen plugin that provides current and forecasted weather data. It's still in the planning stages at the moment but I hope to start coding on it soon.

The other project, which is on the front burner, is the design, development and administration of a local neighborhood group's Web site. Cold Spring Road Neighborhood Community Engagement Initiative sent out a survey a couple of months ago and asked for any volunteers. Being unemployed and in need of experience, I happily volunteered to do their Web site and help with any other IT needs. I'm hoping that this volunteer work goes toward improving both my skills and my resume.

So, today, I have many things to do, and one of them is to get a decent design figured out for CSRNCEI... I've had designer's block for the past month or so and I'm finding it very challenging to design this site but the domain should be ready soon and it needs a site!!

Anyway, I'm off to go get my allergy shots. I'll be thinking about design the entire time. Hopefully I'll come up with something...

P.S. If anyone knows of any programming or network administration or even help desk jobs in the greater Indianapolis area, please let me know. I've had 0 success landing a new job and things are starting to get ugly... LOL

It's been awhile...

It's been awhile since my last post... I've been blogging on MySpace a little bit more than here, but I haven't been blogging religiously anywhere, really.

However, I'd like to do something useful with my writing abilities so I may start blogging more frequently if I can think of something useful about which to blog.

If you're interested, keep an eye on the ol' blog page and we'll see what becomes of it.
