Daily Thoughts 7/5/2010
I tried putting my resume up in Linked In, but it did not quite take the Open Office document. I had to modify it a bit. All the information is up, but, Linked In does not show it as having a resume added. I like Open Office because it is free. At one point, my Micrososft 2003 program stopped working. Because of finances, I tried Open Office. Open Office allows you to save documents in the .doc format. http://www.openoffice.org/ Some open source software is quite good, the Firefox web browser is also excellent. I use both Internet Explorer and Firefox.
I went and sent a few emails out from Linked In and a few other social media sites about the layoff today. I wish I could focus on books a little more. I still have that cold feeling inside.

I put From Hell With Love A Secret Histories Novel by Simon R. Green on hold.
I just downloaded http://www.copernic.com/ and http://www.webferret.com/ , these are both desktop search utilities that are also excellent search engines. I also am looking at Complete Planet which is a Deep Web Search Engine. In addition, I am looking at http://www.indeed.com which is a job scraper, kind of an aggregate search engine for jobs.
