2 Weeks at Take 2

I need a new job. I sent my 2 weeks resignation letter to HR at work today. Thanks to my some pals on IRC for the idea, I didn’t send them a boring letter, but (hopefully) an entertaining letter letting them know I’m quitting in 2 weeks.

Dear Take Two Interactive,

After an appropriate period of deliberation, I have come to the decision to tender my resignation from the position of quality assurance game tester, effective April 22 2005.

Please know that I still maintain a high level of respect for the company and I thank you sincerely for the support and assistance the company has provided me. I have been proud to work at Take Two during my time here; it has been a journey that has provided me an unparalleled foundation to move forward to new and exciting opportunities.

As such, I have decided to become a professional pirate. It has always been a dream of mine to live the life of a swashbuckling corsair, beholden to none and master of all I survey. Once my crew of unabashed rogues is assembled, we shall take to the capacious expanse of the high seas to pursue fortune, fame, and above all, hair-raising adventures.

Our path may not be filled with the porcine comforts and technological marvels that Take Two provides, but we shall nonetheless move forward to carve a name for ourselves in the annals of bold insurgency and death-defying derring-do. Once I have a keen blade at my hip and the Jolly Roger is flapping high above me, I believe I will find my true calling.

Please note that I am currently accepting applications for First Officer, if you are at all interested in applying. I will provide a full medical and dental plan, which will offer immediate coverage of all maladies other than scurvy and the occasional bout of rickets.

Jung Typology Test

According to this test I am an INTJ.

To outsiders, INTJs may appear to project an aura of “definiteness”, of self-confidence. This self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for simple arrogance by the less decisive, is actually of a very specific rather than a general nature; its source lies in the specialized knowledge systems that most INTJs start building at an early age. When it comes to their own areas of expertise — and INTJs can have several — they will be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not they can help you, and if so, how. INTJs know what they know, and perhaps still more importantly, they know what they don’t know.

del.icio.us use

Lately, I’ve been using del.icio.us to keep track of my bookmarks. Since I spend most of my “computer time” at work and I stare at the interweb on my free time, I like having my bookmarks with me whenever I can go online, thus the greatness of del.icio.us.

However, I just found another use for it: keeping my home computer updated with new links. If I find a site I like at work, or would like to take a look at when I’m at home, all I have to do is post that link to my del.icio.us list. I like to tag it as “temp” and every couple of days when I have time, I’ll go through the “temp” list and organize/prune the list.
