    Looks like I had a post back in '07--maybe time for an update. Basically any IPA with Alexander Keith's being a favorite I learned about whilst in Toronto. Can't find it in NJ/PA/DE though which is a bummer....
  4. South Jersey checking in with a few $$.... Pumped about this year--thanks for all you do DM.
  5. Congrats. Glad to hear it worked out for you.
  6. Glad to hear you are getting some results. Hope it works out for you.
  7. As an aside..I don't normally write posts that long..i'm more of a reader/lurker than anything but I feel for anyone trying to find work and I'm a Rutgers grad. University College New Brunswick 1998.
  8. You mail campaign isn't a bad idea but it probably doesn't have a strong likelyhood of getting you an interview, much less a job. If you think about all the hurdles to going in blind like that you'll understand what I mean. It has to get to HR and someone has to take the time to actually read what you've written. They would need to have a job opening that fit's your skills and experience (sounds like you are fresh out of school). If they have that opening, your information would have to make it to the hiring manager, etc........ It's a long string of events that would have to break your way--even one of them going wrong means a dead end. I think any employment professional (I'm not one but I have been managing people for 20 years) will tell you that the best way to find a job is through people you know and the "art" of networking. You want to take the process from something "cold" like I start to describe above to something "warm" where you can cut to the head of the line a bit by at least knowing who to speak to. If you can actually get an introduction that's even better. Don't make the mistake of thinking you know all the people your friends and relatives know. Tell them what you are looking to do an ask them if they know of anyone that it might be worth your time to speak to. It's like that six degrees of seperation thing--in your expanded circle of contacts there is most likely someone who can help. There is a website dedicated to networking that is being used more and more to find contacts and help people find (new) jobs. It's called Linkedin (www.linkedin.com). Check it out. If you could actually link to people in the field you are interested in it will then open up their contacts to you. Not quite as warm as a personal introduction but better than nothing. It seems to be effective regardles of the industry in questions. I call this site Facebook for professionals. Last tip would be to put yourself where the kinds of people you need to meet are. I don't know much about library science but I would be willing to bet that there are groups and associations that support the industry. If they meet locally or if there is a conference (many times these revolve around training or continuing education) get there and mingle. Good Luck. Mark
  9. Welcome. I'm a Rutgers Alum living in Flyers territory so I feel your pain. Keep the faith. Go Devils!!!
  10. The bit in here that he repeats a couple of times about Pronger sneaking in and stealing the pucks gave me a great mental image and I literally laughed out loud. Good stuff.....
  11. Indeed (says the guy living in South Jersey)
  12. Gotta agree with you on this one. Was taken aback at first when I saw the video but if you take the time to watch what was happening there the cop needed to get control of the situation--he was in some real danger. And you're right, maybe he could have wrestled the first girl to the ground before the second one approached but one article I read said that he didn't do that initially because that often causes injury to the suspect. Some cops can be bags o' douche and abuse the authority they have but this guy was just protecting himself. Stay strong on this one.
  13. This. Additionally I can't see anyone wanting to suck to get high picks. Who's to say those top 5 picks don't end up being busts then where are you? I'll take consistently making the playoffs and having a shot--it won't work every time regardless. Also like the quote from the interview with Vanderbeek “We made the playoffs for 19 of 20 seasons, we set a record for the longest number of years over .500 of any active team in the four leagues, so it’s 132 teams,” Vanderbeek says. “That doesn’t come by accident. We’re going to continue to do whatever it takes to make this team the best it can be with the goal to win the Stanley Cup. If you come see us, that’s what you’re going to see. Rock Solid
  14. Me too. If we're honest, Sherry has her struggles but I like her anyway. I came to appreciate Matt after being forced to listen to a Carolina feed (Devils game of course) with that mealy-mouthed announcer they have--don't know his name. I'd eat a bullet if we were subjected to that every game. He kept insisting that the pronunciation of Zubrus was zoooobrush trying to roll the R in the middle. Just awful.
  15. Wow. Find your own way to honor her--pictures or whatever. Once you've done that, for whatever the right amount of time for you is, get that new one. Puppies are so new and joyful--it will help. I think my wife wanted a second dog thinking that we would always have at least one--even if we get to where you are today. Best wishes.
  16. Man that's tough--hang in there. I've had to do that with two cats recently due to illnesses (one was DOA on arrival at an animal hospital--they revived her but there was brain damage so we ended up putting her down anyway) and as the owner of two small dogs I feel for you. Our Yorkie-Bischon mix in particular is my girl. She just turned 7 years old and when her time comes I'm going to be a wreck. Best wishes.
  17. As Sheldon would say this post is "hokum"
  18. Really strange way for this to happen but the statement he put out says it was amicable--also on TG's site {shrug} I guess I'm OK with it...???...just downright weird

    I'm sure with that title this thread got a lot of reads....it got my attention
  20. Rowdy's right--I'd try new firmware before you trash it. I've seen firmware updates resolve wonkiness
