Job news

This is public now.
About a week and a half ago I got a call from some other recruitment agency; they offered me the same relocation job to Nigeria that I had already been offered, as they apparently couldn't find anyone. It seemed funny back in February, but due to the financial situation and lack of other decent propositions recently, I agreed to go to the interview with them.

The news from today is that, having got a call about my acceptance yesterday, I signed the contract with them ("them" being a certain outsourcing company in Israel which has the contract with the actual Nigerian ISP I am about to work at) and so starting from next month and for the next two years I am going to be positioned in Lagos.

Because of this I am organizing a going-away party sometime within the next two or three weeks. I will announce the date separately.

Please reply here if you intend to come.

The trick is to make it plausible.

Так вот что меня выдало?!)

Ну вообще, учитывая что играют даже американские солдаты из Ирака, я думаю, проблем не будет. Связь-то там есть, пусть спутник, пусть отвратительный пинг, но все же!

I thought for a very long what do you mean by this until I ran the comment above through google translate. You are a cruel, cruel person.

Thanks.

Unfortunately it is.
Two months ago I actually was seriously asked if I want to relocate to Nigeria by a certain recruitment agency. However I back then I declined outright and o not think this is relevant any longer.

No it was an April Fool's joke.
And you were really missed on Eli's concert today. It was terrific.

Well, you know a year or so ago I thought about an AFD joke to play on you that involved invoking Neil Gaiman in a way you probably don't expect. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) due to recent considerations of whether or not to actually carry out said invocation for serious (an act which would doubtlessly carry out long-lasting and irreversible consequences) this one will not be done as a joke.

It is therefore that this one had to do for now; hope you enjoyed it (and the fact I'm NOT leaving you for Lagos yet).

Cheers ;-)
