Hot bath?

Glad you're feeling better Ghost.

The human mind is always capable of absorbing more knowledge. The answer to the question should never be 'I don't know' but 'I don't know BUT I will find out'. Why not give a go to 'I can't do it now but I sure as hell will learn how' ?
Just a thought Q, and you can call me anything you like my skin is mutilayered.


Hey, I never said I wouldn't apply for a job where a candidate may be required to learn new things. It's the jobs where the experience I don't have is compulsory in the first place that annoy me. The aforementioned job I mentioned after Dotsie is one I'm definitely applying for when the time comes.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

So glad you're feeling better Ghost! Straining your back is painful.

Take it easy Ghost and try not to do too much until your back is fully better. :)

The highest level of positivity vibes circling the globe in your direction, Q. Knock them sideways with your application.

Hope you're feeling better soon, Ghost.

Working on a project and needed data which my last job are the holders of. The data is published on the web but if I could get the raw data rather than the Images on the web it would save me a day or so in work.
Rang them and asked was there any chance and was told no problem.
Hour later get an email asking for an official request outlining the project so they can review it. I need the data this week and I know they will spend a couple of weeks without even looking at the request. Shower of #@'~'@~£%^.
I bloody set up the data in the first place and its published all ready. Odds are I won't even get a reply unless I chase them.

But wait . Two hours later I get a request for help from the same office . Cheeky shites. And I've helped them on numerous occasions without pay since I finished last December and the first time I ask I get fobbed off.
Very tempted to send a bill for my time spent on various requests since I left and see what response I get.
