    I like natural oil scents. Lavender is my favorite. My french sister-in-law told me that it is a woman's scent although I don't find it gravitates towards any particular gender.

    Lavender is nice. Got a few patches in the garden.

    Flowery scents are nice. Fruit scents, are too strong.

    Well I have an interview for a job outside of the two areas I've been focusing on. I already told them what kind of hours I'm looking for and they see something in me for potential of manager in training and asked me what kind of training skills I have. The interview is later this week and I was told to dress sharp.

    One thing I like about being at home is not having to dress up for other people. Hell, I spend most of my days in my underwear now. :shake:

    I would most likely rather see Dice looking sharp than Keneth in his underwear . . .

    :p

    Me too, although I'm not sure about this job. It's an insurance company and completely not in the field that I'm looking. I believe they are looking for someone to do actual training of other employees. I'm not sure what about my resume they found appealing or possibly my conversation with the woman who set up the interview. But it doesn't matter because I'm going to this interview with the attitude that it is a learning experience. I just have to keep cool.

    Well I went to the interview and was seated with a bunch of other applicants who were well dressed. Some of them looked nervous lol but I wasn't. I forgot my resume. I got called in near the end and had a brief interview with the same woman I talked to on the phone, and at the end she scheduled me for the next interview at 11 next Wed. Apparently I was already at the second interview today. I told her that I had very little experience in the field but she said that they are looking for the way people present themselves.

    So if you were dressed sharp, does that mean you were wearing battlerager armour? :D

    Funnily enough, as prevalent as spiked armor seems to be in fantasy, it was almost non-existent in real life.

    While I'm a firm believer in the rule of cool, I do get pretty annoyed with concepts that make no bloody sense, even if it is fantasy.

    Edit: Then again, I'm annoyed by more or less everything, so that's not really saying much...

    Just replaced my router... the previous one started dropping connections and required a reset to re-establish them about every 24 hours for the last couple of weeks... which got rather annoying. It only lasted about 2 or 3 years but I guess at 19€ for a new one that's about as much life expectancy as you can get out of it. Oddly enough, I was looking at a YouTube review of the same router I got now by an Indian guy and they give these TP-LINK routers 3 years warranty in India... the one I just ditched had a measly 1 year warranty a few years ago and the one I got now (same model, only newer version) has 2 years warranty.

    But we're still a year short of India of all places. So what am I to take from that, that the routers we get here are assembled from even crappier components than those that they sell in India? Yikes...

    I would hazard a guess that due to import costs, taxation, waste recycling regulation etc, the cost of replacements within a longer warranty window is much lower in India than it is in Europe...
