Ok, So I Made Some Changes!
« on: March 16, 2018, 08:23:06 pm »
Inspiration struck last night. Then I spent intermittent hours repairing the damage caused by my inspiration. :P

New domain name: TechCareerFubar.com.

My inspiration was simple: "Tech Career Fouled Up Beyond All Recognition". It hit me that this short phrase is the crux of what the forum has been about for the last 5+ years.

Not pie in the sky pseudo opportunities, not feelgood, but rather enduring and perhaps prospering some from IT during our civilization's end phase of capitalism.

The Wordpress site is now http://TechCareerFubar.com.

I fell out of love with the "LifeAfterTechCareer" moniker once this new idea hit me. Life-After-tech-Career was too restrictive, and pedantic, and too much like self-help.

Tech Career FUBAR captures the idea of humorous cynicism, It's the spirit of nodding along to some company's bloated empty mission statement announcement while you attempt to catch a well deserved 40 winks in the back row of the employee auditorium.

This forum is http://forums.TechCareerFubar.com.

For at least the next year, Computerconsultantsforum.com will seamlessly redirect all article links and pages to the corresponding page of this site.

We needed a change. You guys hardly use this site. We badly needed a clarified mission, reflected in the title, plus some minimal graphics to rise above the aspie geek monotone of Verdana type everywhere.

I think you had a great inspiration.  I like the FUBAR.  How many times have we all said that in situations we've faced dealing with tech?  I know I have when I ran a network and the whole damn thing was down because of any number of things.

You've been a busy bee!   ;D

Oh, good. I thought I was slightly nuts with choosing this name. It's great to get some positive feedback.

Thank you. The new name appears to be nearly pitch-perfect for this crowd.

I could send a segfault, kernel panic or blue screen to your PC when you view the site. Just give the word.  >:D ;D
