"Snookered - verb - Slang . to deceive, cheat, or dupe" I knew things were going sideways before I even got there. I had to deal with some issues at work (yes, I have a "real" job...all three of us do...this is all still done in what we laughingly call our "free time"...) and so I didn't get out as early as I wanted to, which had me running late getting out to Snookers for our Pink Slip Party this past Thursday.

As always, a huge "thank you" to everyone that came out to the BlackFinn last week.  Another great event, and we're seeing a lot of new faces...usually accompanied by some familiar ones, which is the way this is supposed...

Well, the continuing saga of LinkedIn.com's suckage hasn't stopped yet.  They're apparently "having some known issues" with the Jobs area in Groups which are periodically causing things like the "next page" function to load the members of the group...
