A redundant entry

Ah well, I guess I can open up those protected entries from the last week now.

I've just been laid off.

Now to decide what to do next.

Good luck. My immediate suggestion would be, depending on your tastes, to go to either your favorite pub or a nice restaurant and indulge yourself a little bit.

Nope - we need to deliver three chapters of the book by tomorrow. I shall go home and write.

Aw hell
Condolences, mate.

As we talked about over the weekend, this is likely to be a blessing in heavily-veiled disguise, though. Punch it on!

Layoffs
If it's any consolation, the survivors won't be feeling much better right now than you are. (I've been through downsizings on both sides of the outcome and either way, it sucks.)

As others have said - good luck.

Condolences
...and while it may be as irritating as hell to you in your current state ... my first feeling was "well, at least sbisson has so many irons in the fire and so much technical knowledge (and contacts) that he'll fall on his feet, while if it were me I'd probably be out of work for ages and ages (and have nothing to fall back on to carry me through).

Did they at least have the decency to load you up with cash and technical junk?

Coming to the Eastercon?

I hope whatever you find yourself doing next is something you enjoy - and I hope it comes along as soon as you want it to.
Good luck.

Good luck
Been there, done that, got the T-shirts. As some others have remarked, a layoff sometimes a blessing in disguise. It's still a major pain in the arse.

The only advice I can give is to hit the ground running and treat the job hunt as a full-time job.
