It's Friday, no foolin' ...


Wow, it's Friday again, huh?  I have to admit that, aside from the worry, lack of cash, and despair that's still hovering around me, my days look a lot more like they're being occupied by a "freelancer" than a "job seeker", as one of the projects I've been working on (the one that's paying me), has expanded from about a quarter of my time to somewhere around half, and the other project still keeps chugging on, maybe taking up another quarter of my time ... which means that there's not that many hours left for me to be "actively" looking (in terms of getting resumes out, etc. - I'm still doing a lot of networking) for a job, a fact my Wife rather pointedly queried me about recently.

I have, however, been managing to pretty much keep up with Twitter, which means that I'm not letting you all down for these end-of-the-week "link dumps".  I have a system down that lets me get a full day's worth of my Twitter stream (assuming I'm around my computer to "harvest" them) captured and read in about 2 hours total (although I usually end up falling asleep at my desk "catching up" on that in the post-Midnight hours!).

Anyway, pulled out a dozen good pieces this week, including some "encouraging news" on some economic fronts ... hope you find these useful:

And, wouldn't you be shocked if I hadn't merged these into the Big List O'Links and out-putted that as a new version of the .pdf e-book?  Of course you would ... luckily I did, and it's available here:
