Want to know what the best part of your business coming to a screeching halt is? LOOTING. I had a very successful business for 6 years that I recently stopped. It was good money, but was a lot of stress and not particularly rewarding. I had several state of the art computers at the office, so I looted them today. Now I have three monitors instead of one, and a sweet ass water machine.
Also, I went to
Home Depot Jacob the Jeweler and got some sick bling today. Composed mostly entirely out of stainless steel fine platinum, it weighs in at 6 pounds. Besides being horribly uncomfortable around the neck, it punches me in the stomach with the lock as I walk. I consider the purchase an overwhelming success. One of my good friends is throwing a party tomorrow night, and I plan on rocking the chain.
Coming tomorrow... what it's like when people think you're a celebrity... (really)
If you don't mind me asking, why did it come to a screeching halt? Did something change on the online gambling scene?
Hi there Tynan,
Great fashion sense!
Austin is a nicce place. Im writing because I thought Id take the opportunity to ask what it is like living there.
Are you a graphic artist, or painter?
im an artistic odd-job, and considering going into property development and thinking about moving to Austin primarily as an interior designer.
Would be nice to chat with you about it.
From my high horse of self employment, I have stepped into the mud to play with the employed commonfolk. I mentioned a couple times earlier that I was considering getting a real job, but I didn't want to get into details until it actually happened.
Quitting gambling came abruptly, so I didn't have a solid backup plan in place. There's the ebook I wrote and this blog, but neither makes close to enough to constitute a living. For a few months I wandered, considering different options, but didn't find anything I love.
Just as the article says:
A rough, unpolished version of the site is on the brink of going live. There is (was?? Fingers crossed!), one bug that kept cropping up: There was an error coming up when trying to edit the priority queue once the draft had started. As you can imagine, this is a bit of a deal-breaker.
Anyway, we think we have fixed it now. We'll do another round of testing tomorrow (or today rather, it's past midnight here Down-under) and if the Footballing Gods are in a happy mood, have a beta site up and running tomorrow. Hoping to disappoint plenty of wives and girlfriends this weekend...
