Contrary to what Rev says (as much as he'd like a handy from me), I am actually going to be doing basic computer maintenance on Intel and Linux-based software at a local network farm. God, my one good grade in high school paid off. Even if one isn't doing much in the way of computer programming and network management in university, the CISCO program still looks good on a resume.

^Looks much better on a resume than giving handies, for sure.

I still can't fucking see very well and it's pissing me off a lot. My next optometrist appt is Thursday, but nothing can really be done. I had the cataract surgeries but the macular pucker is making things pretty ugly. I had a hell of a time just trying to make a box of Chicken Helper this morning, can't read the fucking box. They have to put fucking white text on a light, textured chickeny background so old people and blind people like me can't read the instructions. Anyway though, retina surgery is not something they just do on a whim, like cataract surgery, and they tend to wait until you're totally fuckign blind.

Did you not receive any training? Try getting some monocular telescopes, oven rack guards, talking microwave, magnifiers, finger guards, from maxiaides.com

Why? Network management pays well (for what is necessary anyway), is relatively easy, and is something I enjoyed learning back in high school. Consider

If your doctor is like mine, they'll charge you if you cancel with less than 48 hours notice. This "penalty charge" needs to be reciprocated.

RE: Ranting corner
Furlough days reduced from 11 to 6. So 3 years with no raise or cost of living increase and this year I get a 2% cut in pay and I should feel grateful it's not a 4% cut. ... I so wanna sumo the shit outta Capitol Hill. I'd throw every single one of them useless feckless pieces of shit basturds out of the dohyō.

I got your naive Ayn Rand economic policies right here, Paul Ryan bitch. ... You do realize she was an atheist right? Right?

well my eyes haven't been this fucked up for very long and it's due to high doses, long term corticosteroids (caused cataracts and macular pucker in both eyes). Up until quite recently, I had no trouble with anything. Hell, I used to read books constantly, I run a video game related internet forum, but now I can neither play video games (can't see enough details, will fail at everything) nor mess with the coding for the site (something I was notorius for doing every five minutes or so). Suddenly I have trouble paying my bills (can't read the writing/numbers). So, more than anything, I am frustrated because this is pretty new to me.

I still have relatives (mom, grandpa) who give me shit for not driving! I can't fucking see the road, and they want me to drive myself places! Yes, I will be taking the bus more, but I do sometimes ask for rides places.

I don't have an iphone, but thanks for the infos. Good gawd, money. This is why I use my debit card, I'm afraid of misidentifying money. I have magnifying glasses and such but that's not always practical. It's going to take some getting used to, and I am a bit stressed out at the moment.

So it's only this Thursday that I will be tested for my actual vision Rx after both surgeries. If it turns out to be bad enough that I won't be able to drive (I'm guessing it is that bad) I will have to figure something out after that.

I feelz ya. My agency was only scheduled for 7 furlough days, but they're trying to ditch bargaining unit performance awards, too. Because slicing one wrist on everyone isn't enough, unless you slice both on the best of your lowest-paid employees.

It's almost like they don't want competent public servants.

So I'm leaving not-too-subtle references to socialist literature around the office for people to find. Big Grin

I think there may be something to that. Incompetent public servants can be manipulated and corrupted, competent ones, yeah good luck with that.
