So this has been an exciting morning. Scott has a sign on our car looking for work and giving some general work details. He made up a QR code on it. So if anyone walks by and is interested, they just have to scan it with a smart phone or iPad and it goes right to his online resume. So one of his tech podcasts asked for people to send in creative uses for QR codes. Scott submitted his car sign and on Monday's episode, they featured him! (http://twit.cachefly.net/video/tsh/tsh0022/tsh0022_h264b_864x480_500.mp4 and he's about 50 mins in) That was kind of cool. So on a whim, I emailed the local news agencies about this. Within 5 minutes of sending the email, NBC called and they are going to interview him about it tomorrow morning! I'll post more when/if they run the story!

On a side note, he has two phone interviews tomorrow afternoon! Cross fingers and send prayers!

So they taped last Thurs and were supposed to run it that evening. Well with he hurricane coverage increasing we got bumped. We just got word it is running today during the 5:30 show! Let hope this leads to work. Meanwhile, it's just kinda cool and exciting! So if you get NBC10 in Philly and are interested, watch at 5:30! For those not local, I will see if I can get a direct link to the story online once it's posted!

WE GOT A JOB!!!! The Comcast job finally came through. Scott just has to pass he drug test and background check and we will get a start date. He has signed all the paperwork. Word has it they have already picked and cleared a desk for him! Also they have already approve his time to go on the vaca that my parents have paid for! It only took 5 months for this to happen but we got it. He will be a "contractor" for about 6 to 9 months but then he will be permanent.
