    If there was another ski racing group around I'd go elsewhere, because they suck.

    24 hours for $300 ? Fuck them, they must think your an undocumented migrant worker afraid of ice. Aren't you an attorney ? Go bill 90 minutes of your time to the team and send them an invoice that you'll write off and be done with it.

    It's not a per hour amount, but this was a 4 hour shift for a half credit, so $50. And I'm a salary man, so there's no work I can do to easily make up for that money/time.

    Do your salary people prohibit you from forming an LLC for side work?
    I realize they might. If not, you could easily bring in a few grand extra per year.
    Let me know if you need help with that.

    The last score of posts belong in the "amuses me" thread.

    Got a big project to complete so I get up at like 4 AM to get going on it. Stupid massive Windows cumulative update apparently knocked out my wifi drivers so I've spent the last 2 hours dicking around with it until I gave up and plugged in ethernet through my dock after searching forever for a long ass cable I had buried somewhere. Google search shows I'm not alone apparently with this latest update. Thanks a lot, MS. These big updates and their subsequent issues always seem to happen at the WORST possible times. Finally rocking and rolling again (thanks to ethernet) but now it's time to get kids going for the day. Sunnuvabitch...

    Updates suck. #1 rule of IT, never update your workstation right before you have to get something done. I have a pending RHEL upgrade that I am putting off because I need to get stuff done.

    Man... I think I'm really glad that I have *NO* idea what you're talking about. <whew>
