I'm down at the Indiana unemployment office using one of their workstations. I officially added my name to the unemployment rolls, so I'll figure among the 400,000 or so new claims this week.
In the it-never-rains-but-it-pours department, the hard drive on our computer seems to have crashed last night. I haven't had an opportunity to examine it and try to fix the problem, but if it's really toast, Planet Swank will of coure be offline more than I thought in the next few days. At the worst, though, I'd expect to be up and running again by the beginning of next week.
Thanks to my friends who have left kind messages in the comment thread to the previous post. Your kind words and support really mean a lot. I'm confident that I'll find new employment soon -- the consulting firm I worked for mentioned some likely prospects opening in June -- and besides, the alternative is simply not acceptable.
