Thank you for your interest in the ITS4 Knowledge Management position with MNIT Services and the State of Minnesota. The posting has been cancelled and will be reposted in the near future. Please watch the Careers website if you are still interested.

Note to Veterans: The email serves as notification per the requirements of Minnesota Statutes Chapter 43A.11, Veterans Preference.

Again, thank you for taking time to apply and your interest in working for MNIT Services and the State of Minnesota.


WOW. Guess they didn't hire either of us.

It took them five months and five days to decide not to fill that req.

I suppose I'd apply again but I may be too busy with the new job to talk to them by that time.

Holy buckets, Kim and I strapped into Pikachuu v1 and left Silicon Valley for the Twin Cities fifteen years ago. (EDIT: 15 years ago tomorrow morning, actually - I better fix this status!) SO glad for all my Minnesota (and beyond) people I've met since then! But also a little sad I haven't hardly spent any time with my California people since then. I still love you all!

Don't let the form letter fool you - I'm pretty sure it was because I asked for too much money. ;-)

#tbt This grouping of terribly unattractive head shots are every license I've had in Minnesota. The second time I had my photo taken I had unwittingly worn the exact same shirt as the first time, so I made sure to keep that streak going forever...although that shirt is pretty ratty these days. Back then I never weighed myself, so I'd just add 10 pounds every time I re-upped, figuring that would be close. Looking at my fat face for a few years on the most recent license DID give me some motivation to at least put a battery back in the scale and get to work. I'm not REALLY walking around at 185 right now, but that's because of all the muscle I've put on which is keeping me from getting there. Yeah, let's go with that. While I'm being fully my last physical, it was confirmed that I'm really more like 5'11½". The beard isn't THAT bad but we'll see how I feel about having it on there for the next four years, barring any government action mandating we all get some "enhanced ID" before this one expires. (Circa July 2004, May 2008, June 2012, last Monday)

Here's a progress check on my current Kallax adventures. I don't think I've ever sweat this much in a Minnesota January as I have the past 24 hours. Looking at what's left to organize...I think I may need to make one more IKEA trip as I've figured out two more good places in this room for storage. Also, does anybody need a million boxes? Honestly I'd keep at it tonight but I have a date with Nightosaur.

As I marveled at the car ahead of me turning onto University Ave from Eustis St and rechecked a third time to make sure I was really seeing what I thought I saw, I pondered just how good a story it must have taken for the owner to convince the Minnesota DVS that not only was it wholly appropriate to have a vanity license plate reading "BDSM," but that THEY deserved to put it on THEIR car.

I drove in the direction of darkness and after various meanderings ended up on Kettle River Boulevard in Wyoming. (Wyoming is a city in Minnesota - I did not drive to the state of Wyoming.) I don't know if I saw the aurora or not, but I definitely saw a heck of a lot more stars than I normally do... and one shooting star. And even when you're at a dark intersection on the Chisago county line, the bugs WILL find you. All in all...welllll I probably should have gone to bed, but what the heck...I can sleep when I'm trending. Besides, the iPod shuffled me some JB, some Byzantium(!), "Last Dance" by Donna Summer and for some reason a Katy Perry "Hot & Cold" a capella on the drive back. 23.6.15 00:49 
All right, I'll go for an aurora drive 23.6.15 00:24 
Anybody see the aurora? I ALMOST want to leave the house and drive north...almost 23.6.15 00:15 
Hmmm, I wonder just how many miles north I'd have to drive to see the northern lights tonight - sounds like not many! 6.6.15 16:46
