good luck with the job shane...hope ya get it

as far as the whole copy protection argument that went on a few pages back it's definately corporate america that is pushing the need for companies to develop new protections....one place i worked at had about 50 pc's and i don't think anything was legal till they got caught...everything from windows to office to autocad...one legal copy was locked up in a shelf and the "pc guys" were in charge of installing it on every new pc lol...they ended up with almost 600k in fines and talked it down and went legit then went out of business 2 years later

Scooby, your a annoying poster. You annoy almost everyone here so why dont you just leave, because more and more members are starting to wake up to how annoying you truly are.

Good Luck Mr. Pitman

Nah, I wouldn't say that ...poses a different argument each time, need more people like that, it broadens thought to help with an informed decision.

And i'm sure you would agree with that notion Shane.

Of course. I don't expect everyone to share the same opinion, and I don't expect everyone to appreciate mine. However, there's a difference between having an opinion and expressing it and then moving on, or continually trying to rile people up just to elicit a response. That's called flame baiting, and it's not something that I care to participate in. Once an exchange of opinion reaches that point, I'd rather just dismiss myself from the conversation and let it go. Difference of opinion is fine, but both parties have to realize that each is entitled to their own.

Still haven't heard anything? It's been months!

Nah, I had my initial interview two weeks ago this coming Monday. I hope to hear something by then.

this is an interesting thread, i didnt rea dit all, as this is neowin and people post every second :p :rofl:

i did though, read up to 13 pages. Very interesting stuff, on the last few pages you said how you did the game copying when no one really gave a ****, this is absolutley true, no one gives a **** and i'm not saying that in a bad way, but I have done stuff on the net and other places, where people simply dont care and are just there for the 'product' only you are here now, that people are sainyg how good the razor group was, but really, if was just another group to people. and i'm sure about this. i personally don't game, but yeah, i've seen Razor1911 files around and yeah, i know a bit abotu it, didnt download anything as again, i dont play games, etc so again, i jus think that people should whoever reads this, appericiate things that people do, and dont take advantage of the people, or what they do.

anyways, i wont ask questions, i mean, people askked almost everythign there is to ask..

I am certain you will get the job, I have called and asked ms cleo for you.

Good luck. I don't think I ever played any of your games, although I probably seen some of them.

You went in for a good cause, too bad they have to be so annoying about piracy, they make too much money anyway.

So good luck in your new job and hope you can put your 1337 skills to use.

Won't be hard to find one. I bet atleast over %50 of all businesses in the USA do that. I can think of 2 right now that I could turn in.

This is just another example of the government BS that goes on here in the US. Screw the little guy, so it looks like the gov. is doing something. While corporate America gets richer using pirated software.

*sigh* I know, and here's what I know thus far. I talked to someone in the HR department this morning. He told me that they had finished up the last interview on Friday and that he was going to try to get with the department manager today to see what he wanted to do. Afterwards, I talked to my friend who told me that he's hearing that they are going to invite 2-3 people back for a second interview, no word on who or when. He's trying to find out more, but that's all I know for now. It's been 2 weeks since I interviewed, and I must say that I'm both anxious and frustrated. I know that this is common practice for a lot of employers, but that does little to comfort me. I really need this job, I really want this job. My qualifications fit the job description perfectly. I've done exactly the same things they're looking for and have several letters of recommendation from IBM Global Consulting consultants who've worked with me to back it up. So again, I'm just waiting to hear something. Thank you all again for the kind words and thoughts.

Well, this is a post that I didn't want to make, and I've been sitting here chewing on it for an hour or so. A little over an hour ago I got a call from the HR department of the company that I interviewed with. They have offered the position to someone else. They gave me the usual line about keeping my information and considering me for any future openings.

I don't know what else to say right now, other than I am extremely thankful to all of you for your kind words and support. When I started this thread, the intention was merely to express my happiness and excitement in finally having the opportunity to possibly rejoin the workforce and resume my life. Now it seems that my hopes have once again been crushed. There's nothing I can do about it though, just keep plugging along, sending out resumes and filling out applications. Thank you all again, Neowin is truly a great community.
