And the last day of my tenure with CapG has arrived. Here's a proper Irish sendoff!

Things are aligning for the New York job and relocation. I have crash space for 21 Jan through 1 Feb, and another couch lined up for 1 Feb for a couple of weeks, thanks to a lot of really wonderful people who have seriously put in effort on my behalf. That should give me enough time to get the deposit and rent together for a cheap room, probably in Newark or Jersey City, until I can afford a nicer room maybe in Queens or Brooklyn. The new company still hasn't told me what the pay schedule is or gotten me a direct deposit form... that's making me nervous. However, I have spoken with the client, I have a report date, I know where to report to, and I've got enough cash squirreled away to have grocery money if I'm frugal and keep to a vegetarian diet, which I ought to do anyway.

So things are starting to come together. Wednesday morning, I leave for NYC, and will be on the road for the day. May post along the route. Don't know. More on this story as it develops. Thank you again to everyone (it's a long list) who has helped out with this. It'll be paid forward.

I'm going to lose my job because I can't find a place to live.

Panic setting in. I have to start a new job in NYC on the 22nd. All the room share sites appear to have been taken over by fraudsters and spammers. I've been unable to find lodgings. I've got a budget of around $650 a month, and need a furnished room with kitchen access within a one hour commute of Manhattan. I've been looking in Jersey City, Newark, Queens, Yonkers, and any place where the cost of the train ticket isn't going to be equal to the rent. If I get one more con artist trying to redirect me to Roomster, I'm going to give up and accept that I will be the highest paid person in the cardboard box camp under the bridge.

Now it can be told: I have submitted my resignation to CapGemini, and am leaving them for a higher paying job with better career advancement potential. The problem here is that the new job is in New York City. I need a furnished room or other lodging somewhere within an hour's commute of Manhattan by the 19th of this month. If anyone has any suggestions =other= than Roomster, now would be the time to speak up.

Yes, 1879 is a highly crunchy game, but if you want to really dig into the technology of steampunk and play it in character, we're giving you what you need.
In which we delve a bit more deeply into the realm of clockwork mainframe computing, and explain how Analytical Engines work so very differently from the interactive computers that we have in the modern era. #FASA1879 #computers #steampunk
