    have you tried a recruiter?  yeah it sucks that you have to pay a pimp, but they do all the heavy lifting for you and then you have the chance to go full time.
    In June, the missus and i both moved to michigan for work.  I got hired to one of the big three car markers through aerotek and she got hired to some third party car part supplier through aerotek as well.  she wasn't making too much, but after 4 months they took in full time and bought her out of that contract.  She's now full time salary which came with a bump since the company wasn't paying the recruiter their cut..  She has no real experience related to the work and her schooling was in customs border services, they did all the work building her up and selling her.

    I was into dinosaurs and paleontology, (what kid wasn't) but then i wanted to be a professional baseball player or an engineer.  I actually found baseball cards of myself from when i was 8 through 11 and under the section "future ambitions/career" they started at Computer Engineer and then became Engineer.  I'm now an Electrical Engineer at GM.

    sometimes you luck out and its not the harddrive, but the connector between the computer and the drive.  I had this issue with external enclosures failing and i thought it was the drive.  Once you pull out the harddrive, try throwing it into an extra bay on a desktop or into an external case.  You may get lucky and be able to get your data

    thats not a bad deal for mysimplemobile. When i travel in the US for work i have a T-Mobile number i do pay as you go and its $50 for unlimited talk text and data. if there's no contract i may switch because the caveat to the tmobile is only the first 100MB is at 4G speeds

    i use all of the above and more. My homebrewed Wii lets me stream using WiiMC. I found this to be the simplest and most reliable because as soon as something is dropped into the shared folder its available instantly, but the picture quality isn't there. I also stream through my xbox but i hate having to open windows media player everytime i want to sync my videos. its stupid. My most common way is using the network capabilities in my tv and streaming directly from my shared drives on my computer. this cuts down on the remotes as i only need the TV one and not a TV one and a video game controller

    I haven't had cable in 6 years. I RSS feed all my torrents so they download as scheduled (almost like waiting for air times) I don't think i could ever pay for cable and being a slave to the networks scheduling on when i have to watch stuff.

    as far as not wanting to use the computer everytme to watch a show, either leave your computer on all the time so its not an issue or set up a media server so its always accessible. We keep a tablet on the coffee table so if by some chance i don't have something downloading and my computer goes to sleep i can wake it up using Teamviewer and some wake on lan apps.
