    @Chopsen When I said focussed, I meant to say urgent.

    @nickthegun sometimes you are on hold for ages before support calls get answered.

    Amazon US just launched a thing where buying a physical CD gets you the MP3 album too. Pretty unremarkable, except for the fact they're backdating it for all purchases from 1998 onwards. Might be coming to the UK soon.

    I just noticed that too.

    Of course, no CDs I've ever bought from them apply. :/

    What is interesting looking into it is that there are rumours they're attempting to lock down deals to do this with books too. Should cease all complaints about "the ebook is more expensive than the paperback" talk, and should make the publishers happy if physical book sales increase too.

    I hope so, it'd make life much easier if you didn't have to rip them too when you buy a CD. I still like a physical product for music.

    At one point I was trying to explain what I did at my old job and after about 2 minutes I realised I was talking fucking nonsense but kept going anyway. Didn't even finish half of my sentences. Lots of awkward stopping in between sentences for 5 seconds of silence. Nice.

    The call probably would of went better if I just screamed cock over and over again for 20 minutes. The job was for Giantbomb btw.

    Isn't that part of Dr Evil's weapons division? It would have poor prospects, Austin Powers always foils his schemes.

    Never mind, at the worst it's still good practice.

    Yeah first phone interview. I'm usually great in interviews. Don't know what happened.
  • Deleted user 10 January 2013 21:44:27
    Phone interviews are cunts. Sorry it went so bad.

    Phone interviews suck like a lung wound. You are robbed of fifty percent of your ability to make an impression. The worst ones are with disembodied people abroad, so there's a slight language barrier to whittle that fifty percent of you down even more.

    FCUTA!

  • Deleted user 10 January 2013 22:21:07
    In May we can therefore expect Deckard to really ramp up the funny.

    Seriously mate, everyone chokes on their first phone interview. It's completely fucking different and horrible.

    I had a phone interview and forgot what a raid was. I could bend your ear about storage all the live long day but as soon as I got on the phone I would probably have been unable to identify a flash drive.

    Thankfully I havent had enough of them to get used to it.

    I'll give him that, he is quite breathtaking. Like a Jewish Oscar the Grouch. Only sexier.

    What's a raid?

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    In terms of the job I was going for it was like you forgetting what a loan is.
