Well, I finally figure it was time to get up for the day... Looked at the clock, and panicked. I was after 1:00pm. I had scheduled an interview and contract signing thing at 2:00pm. So I rushed thru the shower, got online to check my mail and get the directions to the place... And wouldn't you know it? They weren't there. This indicates to me that the person I was talking to, who went home early yesterday due to illness, didn't come into work today. So I sent them a message stating that since I hadn't heard from them, I was figuring they weren't at work today and get well soon. Yay.
So I have a few calls to field a bit later today, but I can still relax and have breakfast in the meantime. I also may go out to the library and pick up the copy of Orson Scott Card's _Ender's Shadow_ that's on reserve for me. I'll be done with _The Diamond Age_ today, with any luck.
Hmmm, I can't think of anything else important to put up here... I don't feel quite like ranting yet, so I'll save that up for later.
From what I understand, they want someone to build their e-commerce site from the ground up - hardware and all. This would include servers, firewalls, connectivity, applications, pages, and everything in between.
It would be an awesome project to be part of, just the kind of thing I need for personal experience as well as to add to my resume.. it's just that... I can't possibly do all of that right now... I simply don't have all the knowledge needed. And it's not exactly the kind of thing you can just pick up a book and study on your own.
That, and my Japanese is so rusty....
I'm not trying to count myself out, I'm just being realistic. I'm damn good and what I do, and I'm sure once in that position I would pick it up quickly and be able to work towards delivering precisely what they want. It appears to be a very daunting task at the moment, and with what limited knowledge I have right now, it doesn't seem to hold much promise.
Then again, I do still have a technical interview to schedule from London, and I'm waiting on more details to be delivered via e-mail. I'm starting to hope that with these, I can get myself set up on the correct angle and nail it despite my initial misgivings.
