Saturday is Independence Day here in the United States. People have cookouts and watch fireworks. It’s a big deal here in Philly and is usually a 7-10 day celebration called Welcome America.

Another month has coming to a close. It seems that time just keeps going by faster and faster. Summer has finally set in here and I am trying to keep cool without air conditioning.

Some of you may know that I used to work in tech support. I actually really liked the work but had numerous issues with management.

Before I had a face to face interview I had a phone interview. I was asked questions like, “what web browser do you use?” and “what is a firewall?”. I thought it was odd but must have been their first level screening process.
