Debating to go w this style


or this style


Prefer not those wall mount due to it's already taken w other storage
Floor space is most critical.

Finally making headway on that potential new job I interviewed for last month.

Very long story so I won't bore with the details.. But tomorrow I'm finally doing an informational phone call with a hiring manager from one team, and then doing an in-person informational meeting with a HM from a different team in a different location (in SF).

After these I'll be allowed to make a choice, and then my recruiter will confirm interest from the HM of the team I choose, and if that's all good then I'll finally get the official offer and can then put in notice here.

In the end it'll have taken 2 months. RIP me.

That's great progress.


My wife is on month 7 looking after being let go (stock price bolster activities) from a place she'd worked for 18 years. The job market is shot.

Good luck!

My current job took about 2 months to line up. I had 2 problems in that period. The first was that the company I was leaving was going to spend a ton of money "training" me for a job I didn't want to do, but didn't have many other options at the time. And the second was that training including spending 10-12 hours a day "working" on a dock in Miami-ish in July...

Saw so many Levorg STI in Japan last year, even a couple outfitted as taxis. Not a bad looking car at all.

Thanks! This process was full of weird issues. They keep telling me it hasn't been typical at all but it's still been super frustrating.

That doesn't sound pleasant at all.

It's tough! Sorry about her being let go like that. Hopefully she can find something sooner than later.

This works for me, although I don't keep tires up there.

I put stuff up there I just can't throw away and then every 10 years I throw everything up there away - and start another collection -

Spend more, make less. Pretty much sums up 2020 so far.

millennial squirrels aren't as motivated anymore with the free bird feeders and open trash cans.

i remember when squirrels used to work for their food!

notice that the standing rack only really holds 3. i've got some similar racks for storage in my basement. they're big and take up a lot of space.

have you considered home decorating alternatives?
