Thanks to Microsoft providing APIs, but not providing any utility-level support (such as Unix's 'ln' command,) few people today are aware of the fact that Windows provides file system level support for both POSIX compliant hard links for files as well as Microsoft's own form of symbolic links through shell links and (on NTFS 5 or higher,) junction points for directories. Instead, they've offered to hype their own shortcuts (which are nothing more than a generic, meaningless .lnk file...

Well, once again everything's steadily falling apart and I'm stuck at one of those "What the hell am I supposed to do now?" moments.

I'm still out of work. That makes three months now - and my meagre savings have, once again, managed to dwindle away into nonexistance while I search for a job ($3 left in my wallet, emergency bus money!) Why did I move back to the east coast again?

Hrm - so I have a blog now... what of it?

I know I have my own opinions, I post them often enough to be sure of that - but... why a blog? What exactly am I going to put in here? I don't, personally, believe in ranting, I'm not undergoing any particular projects at the moment, and right now py personal life (while really nobody else's business,) isn't exactly anything to scream about either (Today: Did more job hunting.
