well..made redundant, subtle difference I know but still...

So tomorrow is "get portfolio together and check the job ads" day,
and tonight is time for a beer.

The end result is the same, but it's good to know it's not because you did a bad job or anything.
Will you be posting your portfolio on here?

Yeah I suppose I could.  I wasn't expecting this so although I've got some recent work it's not up together.
  It'll take me a day or two to get it together and presented nicely.

The dodo came with me,  we're a team.

a bit far I should say -- but glad you found something.

There's some free flights thrown in to sweeten the deal.  Yeah it's not ideal in some ways, but it's a good one for the CV

flying -- hum -- lots of dust/particles in your space these days, no?

Lots and lots of them. All flights to Germany are canceled. International train tickets are worth their weight in gold. Maybe more, as they don't weigh that much.

Yeah. I've not heard from the guy who's arranging the travel, but I'm supposed to be there for a meeting tomorrow afternoon.

NotGonnaHappen i think.

SO I actually made it to Frankfurt, but the guy I was supposed to be working, (Old friend of mine) has been off sick since I got here.
More cintiqs in these offices than I've ever seen in one place before.   ;D

is buying a 21UX Cintiq part of the contract?  ;D


Title: Re: Here's what I did at work today...
Post by: Drewid on May 05, 2010, 09:06:07 PM
Maybe I'll try for that if they offer me another contract.

Sooooo. I came back from Frankfurt (end of 2010)  where I was working on Crysis 2 , got a job in a small town nearby doing dance/fitness/kids games.   
End of last year company starts getting shaky, and I end up being cross-hired out to Playground Games for several months working on...
