Well that's strange. It doesn't really mean much anyways. If you are currently assembling a Game Development team than
further communications with me will be necessarily. The post was for a quick reference point to my background.

Ohh ya, what was the error message? There is no reason I can see for the broken URL.

Having perused your resume, I'm a little confused about what you are actually bringing to the table, since it doesn't seem you are offering to fund a project.

Your qualifications seem to consist entirely of half a degree from a community college, and a certificate in Unix Administration. Your history is full of buzz-words, but no actual employers or projects. And you seem to regard managing 2 servers is a big deal. Is that a fair assessment?

Well needed critique as well. As the saying goes "you run with wolves, you'll soon learn to howl".

"Fair assessment?" Allow me. It's obvious that you were employed by your professors at your college. Thus raising your ego to a "Douche Bag" elevation and allowing you to feel comfortable in tearing down others who are in your field of work. I don't know who pinned a first prize to your behind, but your current work ethic is counter-productive. While it is not my personality, it would feel good to watch you slip and fall into a mud puddle. Why no go about being better than everyone while keeping it to your self? Did you catch the important "Buzz word" in this?

Fair play. But I don't get your resume at all, at all...

If you have 'several thousand hours' experience, why even put the '~60 credits' on your resume? Right now it reads as 'community college dropout', whereas if you took out the college, and added a former employer or two, it would remove that connotation entirely.

Since when has 'integrity' factored into server uptime, and how often do human beings end up in a 'non-working state'?

"An unwavering integrity keeps servers running and uncompromised and users in a working state."


What in hell's name does this even mean?

"Providing a successful outcome under minimal supervision regardless of complexity or happenstance detractors."

Ya, I can understand the resume confusion. It is not as professional as it should be. On that note, there is coherency in what I have stated there. For starters, there isn't any relevant past employers. My stated work projects will have to circumvent this lack of "corporate" experience. I have made money and gathered vast experience with them. This is why I state the following:
"Providing a successful outcome under minimal supervision regardless of complexity or happenstance detractor"



It is my way of saying "When the going gets tough, the tough get going". Also I do this alone and successfully despite

any unforeseen obstacles in the path. It is coherent and if anything, boastful.


As far as this goes:

"An unwavering integrity keeps servers running and uncompromised and users in a working state."




Uhhh, I probably should change that soon (It may help)...


I am a success story and will not let any pessimism lower my head. If there are some who make $1000's a week from a conglomerate, than congratulations.

I will be happy doing what I have been for the past 3 years. Also, I plan on attending community college for the remainder of my decades and will never consider

my education dropped.


With one finger toward the skyscraper and the other on my keyboard, ha.

Talking like this when trying to prove you are a cool guy to work with, makes you look exactly like the guy you are describing above.
