« Mon May 17, '10, 11:00 pm »   Oh lord
« Mon May 17, '10, 11:00 pm »   Eh.. Interesting chat we have here
« Mon May 17, '10, 11:00 pm »   I shouldn't have gulped down two beers in one go. Ah, hell, life's too short to worry over safety.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:59 pm »   Bit drunk at the mo.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:58 pm »   hot here
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:53 pm »   How is everyone tonight/this evening/this aftern... oh, you get the idea... How is everyone? My basement flooded. Boo. Lots of rain here.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:45 pm »   Oh right, Wolf. I didn't realise that. I thought they were exclusive to ps stuff.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:44 pm »   I'm a bit hammered people. Weee.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:19 pm »   The Muskies! A once a year thing. And it was my idea too! ^_^
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:19 pm »   It awards for other things totally unrelated to PS, as well. Granted, the muskies were just recent, like a month or two ago.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:19 pm »   If it's a queen, she's probably on heat. I dunno.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:18 pm »   Probably hungry.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:18 pm »   It enourages members to take more part in the community, imo.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:18 pm »   My cat keeps howling at something...
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:18 pm »   This place seems good because it gives awards to fans of the series because of their fan projects, etc.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:17 pm »   I don't like the yellow gay background and such. But the forum isn't bad, and the web content is passable.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:15 pm »   Cause they're after me lucky charms!
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:14 pm »   heh
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:14 pm »   Why's that?
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:13 pm »   Then again, anything is better than ps cave in comparison.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:13 pm »   Seems busier than ps cave.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:12 pm »   not really...
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:10 pm »   Possibly. I don't know much about that. But yeah...that's what I'll be doing, and I managed to get a position with Habitat for Humanity, which is a great organization, IMO.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:10 pm »   Is it not normally this busy, Atlin?
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:09 pm »   It's a UK agency funded by government.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:09 pm »   caters
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:09 pm »   Sounds like Remploy which catered to disabled people.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:06 pm »   Lotsa people on right now... wow
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:05 pm »   Because the specific purpose of the program is to to place volunteers in disadvantaged, low-income areas.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:05 pm »   Yeah, it is government employment, I think, but it's hard to really tell. Now, what's interesting is you're doing paid volunteer work...so it's really easy to get in, but you only get paid JUST enough to live.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:04 pm »   So what basically happens is that a non-profits post listings on the Americorps website, people can create profiles and apply for positions in non-profits.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:04 pm »   Sounds like a government job agency somewhat.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:03 pm »   Oh, right.
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:03 pm »   What kind of service?
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:01 pm »   It's really difficult to explain...it's run by the Corporation for National and Community Service, but it receives government funding, so it's not private sector, and it basically provides workers for non-profits.
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:57 pm »   Anywho, about my job...if you're not American I guess I should start with Americorps. Americorps is a government-funded community service program for the entire United States.
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:55 pm »   There we go. Sorry about that. I had just finished making some food and I wanted to clean up the mess I had created up to that point.
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:52 pm »   So despite it being such a small company my boss gets plenty of work and he does well for it.
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:52 pm »   Or rugby pitches in Wales, that kind of thing.
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:49 pm »   I surveyed at a lord's estate once.
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:49 pm »   To be honest, there's only two people: me and my employer. :P
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:48 pm »   Well the company I work with is rather small and we survey for various types of clients, be they middle-class or upper class people or building companies.
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:47 pm »   Eh, take your time.
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:46 pm »   Sure, just let me finish doing something real quick. :)
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:46 pm »   That's the kind of work Habitat does, so...yeah. It does count as service. Do you do that for a private company or a non-profit?
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:45 pm »   I don't know much about them as I'm not Amercian. Care to amplify your new job details, please? :)
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:44 pm »   Well my work plays a vital role in development of houses, sports grounds, supermarkets, etc, so it has its community benefits.
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:41 pm »   It's something. I'll be doing service in Americorps VISTA with Habitat for Humanity in New York.
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:40 pm »   Surveyor as in land, buildings, etc.
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:39 pm »   What job is that then? I'm currently a trainee surveyor part-time. Not really glamorous, but a job's a job.
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:37 pm »   I am well, peaguy, as I just got confirmation today that I have job for the next year, at least. How are you?
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:31 pm »   Sorry, Lyla. I don't always pay attention to the shout box.
« Mon May 17, '10, 9:31 pm »   So how is everyone since I've been absent for one or two years? Everyone well?
« Mon May 17, '10, 8:25 pm »   Gone with ze wind.
« Mon May 17, '10, 8:00 pm »   Hmmm....gone. -_-
« Mon May 17, '10, 2:07 pm »   If you're going through hell... keep going.
« Mon May 17, '10, 2:00 pm »   An yeah, there's a sudden explosion of activity in the Fringes. Nifty! Might it have something to do with school being out?
« Mon May 17, '10, 1:59 pm »   Hey, I had Lucky Charms for breakfast, too.
« Mon May 17, '10, 1:31 pm »   Okay, this place is officially active. Every time I log off and come back, there's a page worth of chat archive to read a LOT of unread posts! How awesome!
« Mon May 17, '10, 10:03 am »   @Wing-0: The shoutbox is where we have randomized fun! *throws confetti*
