    Reply to How to choose a scanner?
    <b>
    I agree, the Canoscan is a good scanner -- especially for the price. I've bought a couple of Epson Perfection V700 Photo Scanners for work, and would do so again if they're still made. They've been very...

    Yep, like I said, freelancers who are hoping to work full-time for the company for which they are occasionally freelancing are unemployed designers who are freelancing until they find full-time work.

    The "freelancers" are basically there to be called in if a big project comes up and they need the extra hand, and these are designers hoping to get a full time spot at the company.

  • I had Luke with me this morning and he was getting antsy and wanted to climb on the railing for the steps, I tried to tell him to stop (or at least hold on tightly) because if he fell and got hurt I wasn't going to leave the line to get him help until I voted...sure enough he fell and hurt his ear and i grabbed him and could see everybody saying "awww" and i had to again tell him, i wasn't going to leave until I voted. I had been in line at least a half hour at that point.

      Double-standards are so not fair. If YOU had fallen and hurt your ear, people would have just assumed you were drunk.

      • nope, the paper bag that fell and the noise of glass shattering would have helped in their assumption.

        ...or maybe me saying to everyone I can't wait to get my iPad Mini...this is the line right?

        • My very strong chain, made out of space age material, broke. I have A LOT of patience but I have no patience for someone asking for changes to materials one change at a time. Apparently I can only take so much of this. The good thing is I have found out where my breaking point is. The bad news is that once I reach that point, it apparently results in me telling my boss I will not accept anymore changes prior to 30 minutes of contemplation on his part regarding what changes he needs. He has one more round. These aren't petty changes. These are changes that are like "I think it would be a good idea to analyze our cities growth patterns since 2004 and display them as percentages." Um, buddy, I'm out of here in an hour and you're getting on a plane in 2 hours for a trip you've known about for over a year. And now you want to get serious about it? Sorry. I suggested a growth pattern study weeks ago, when there was time, and the idea was poo-pooed. Now that you're really thinking about it, it's a good idea? Start thinking much further out. I can crap out a lot of work, but I'm not crapping out an 8 year study in less than an hour. That's being someones b*tch, not their employee.

            Really ?
            Have a frustrated call in right now.
            But for the second time in my life as a designer I got to tell someone to "stop the presses" until it's sorted out.

            This is the world/karma reminding me why I'm no longer a full time designer isn't it?
            Or is it punishment for turning my back on my career and selling out to an oil and gas firm?

              • Audi, that's ridiculous. Getting it wrong first time is barely forgivable, twice in a row for 1 job is madness.

                  This is my pen tool. There are many like it, but this one is MINE. My pen tool is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My pen tool without me is useless. Without my pen tool, I am useless.

                    We just get a piece of paper and a black sharpie. Fill in the oval. Send it into the collection machine and done.
                    No candy, no grapes, no stickers.
                    They change our precincts every other year and always have a map. Still got in the wrong line one year because the precinct line fell on my street and it turned out the odd side was in one precinct and the even side in the other.
