Hi Jackie, and welcome!

I'm an old lady and hopelessly non-technical. What is a 1TB SSD?

I'm also giddy about receiving an order I made recently. :)

My telephone system (landline/ answering machine) has been crapping out for some time now. The whole shebang is at least 18 years old, there is a ton of "snow" on the line, the wireless phone battery now lasts only about an hour before it needs a charge, and for the last eight months or so, I've been getting endless (fake) charity calls - least five or six a day.

My new phone system has the ability to block calls/numbers. I can't wait to set it up!

One thick-bodied stainless steel dildo.

You're :welcome:.

Also a one terabyte solid state drive. A hard drive with no moving parts.

This morning I received the caller ID ID'd a number as being from one of my (dead for 5-6 yrs) best friends' father. What's even worse, the father has been dead for at least 35-40 years.

I think the number was spoofed.:lol2:

A few weeks ago, I got a call from a number I didn't recognize. I picked up the phone and said "Hello?" A young man said, "Oh gramma, I'm so glad you're home. I'm in trouble and I really need your help."

"Oh, that's too bad," I said, "but I guess you're going to have to take care of your OWN shit, because I don't have any grandchildren."

*click*

Heh.

:devil: :cheerldr: :tuba: :fumette: :beer:

DAMN, Edna. I've got another Project Manager asking for my time. In particular, she says: "Itís time sensitive and we need someone on this that can work quickly and meet deadlines."

Unfortunately, I'm awaiting the final files for another project (front/back matter, resources, etc.), so I can't really commit. So I suggested the two Project Managers work out a way that I can complete both of their projects.

BTW, this new project pays .75% mor than the one I'm already working on. The bidding war progresses . . . :D

Thanks, Bruce! I had to turn the new project down, since I'm due to receive the final files for my current book next week.

Ah well. At least word is getting around that I'm good at what I do and can be depended on to meet even the craziest deadlines. My client is a BIG global company and their editing/publishing arm puts out roughly 2000 books a year, so I think I'll have lots of work going forward. Yay!

Three-quarters of a percent? 75 cents? 75%?

I confuse so easily.

Yeah, I'm paid by the page. Typical rate is $2 per page. The new job offer came in at $2.75/page. Super rush jobs bring $3/page.

I'm never going to get rich doing this, but it pays the bills and it's work I like. Plus, I can work in my jammies and do bong rips whenever the hell I want; I'm my own manager.
