Have you contacted the place again since applying/interviewing? If not then get on that, its always good to do a follow up a few days or a week later. That way they have a better chance of remembering you, and your odds of getting the job go up.

Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Ordered the Deathwatch RPG rulebook last week. First stop was Lindenhurst, NY on the 21st. Hasn't moved since. I get that with amazon standard shipping its in the area of 4-14 days, meaning the latest expected delivery date is November 10th, but its still just plain lazy to keep it sitting there for 4 days rather than passing it on.

Looked up postal service reviews for that town and pretty much all of them were negative, so that doesn't fill me with confidence that I'll be getting my order anytime soon, if at all.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

Yeah I contacted them a few days ago and they said they were still busy with the monthly restocking thing, which I do recall from the day I handed in my resume.

I'm still hopeful, but I tend to be very pessimistic about things =<

I've been living in China for nearly ten months now and there's a few things I must say on the country/people/customs. Because as much the country and enjoy living here, there's some things I have to suffer through which make me wonder why I even like it here.

Although I like Chinese girls, there could not be a better textbook example of 'mixed signals' from the female sex. They bother you (a 1,93 tall, white kung fu student who speaks broken mandarin) all day every day stating you are handsome and they want to go out with you but when you actually agree to meet up with them they say they're not interested in having a 'laowei' (foreigner. Lit. outsider) as a (boy)friend. Only to start stalking you again three days later and showing up at your place in a outfit sexy enough to numb the mind. (39 accounts with 19 individual girls)

Chinese traffic... Oh my god. If you ever visit the big cities and are shocked by their driving, stay away from rural China! You'll end up having a heart attack by looking at it. I live in rural China and every freaking day is a fight for survival. (298 days, twice that number in near death experiences in traffic alone)

Parenting. They let their kids take a dump on the middle of the street. (Combine this with my previous point and it becomes even more horrible!) so you're having dinner at a restaurant with two friends, your master, your chinese teacher and her sister and some kid starts taking a crap not ten metres away from you. (9 accounts)

Chinese organizational skills. When asked to bet which one is more likely; a Chinese guy manages to organize something, anything really, involving more than 10 people and there will be no major issues or you suddenly waking up on the moon dressed as a unicorn riding Jabba the Hut into battle against a legion of Amazons wearing 'I <3 Berlin" t-shirts deploying from the sphincter of an enormous purple suited duck, put your money on the latter.

Furthermore; the food is shit, the hygiene is mythical, the pollution is abundant and about a million other issues I won't bore you guys with. Not yet...

That sounds like they're toying with you. And/or foreigners in general. Whether the taboo is too strong to allow them room for indulgence, or you're actually seen as slightly inferior yet "exotic," they seem to be getting their rocks off on making you 'start' the chase, rather than the whole package itself.

I don't doubt it. Hell, I wonder if the government encourages road rage due to population initiatives... nasty thought.

And people wonder why the Chinese have been brow-beaten beneath autocrats for millennia.

Now I find this curious, since my knowledge of cultural China as per the Flying Tigers era suggests that the Chinese are 'great' organizers and team players, though they often lack guidance. Either they 'still' lack guidance or that trait was lost somewhere along the line.

No, toying I can handle, that's matter of ignoring it or playing along and then set the rules. (That sounds horrible, putting it like that...)
I sometimes think they are willing and wanting, but parents don't approve or they get shy or some deeper psychological problems, I don't know, I couldn't care. It's annoying.

But in the end the one girl I fell in love with is now my girlfriend, so I guess it all works out.

Still though...

Its so lovely having a vendor run a program update that locks you out of your computer's main program for researching account information for an inbound Credit Union call center. What makes it even better, having to be on the phone when you can't help people. I have to depend on coworkers not being on the phone so I can transfer the call.

Sounds like Liverpool. I made a visa application to go, but apparently it got cetoed shortly after being accepted as a result of my military background (i was serving my 1 year notice at the time though). I'd wanted to enter through Hong Kong though.

I think maybe they thought I would have been a spy, but how a 6ft 3" tall, 16 stone scouser would have been an effective spy is beyond me
