I’ll soon be out of here! I made a phone call to the Arbeiterkammer today [an official representation of employees – do we have anything like that in Germany, btw?] to inquire about my claim to unemployment benefits should I consider not to extend my contract. And I learned that, in this particular situation and being a German who has worked in Austria for 3 years, I’d receive benefits immediately, and for a period of up to 30 weeks. Finding a new job within that time frame cannot be that difficult, can it? Certainly not, considering that I’d be willing to do just about everything for as long as it wouldn’t be full-time. I’d rather work part-time and spent the rest of my time working on the half dozen of unfinished scripts that I have on my computer. The future’s bright – why didn’t I call them earlier?

Ever since I designed the End Guantanamo! banner, the traffic on my blogged has reached a new low: It’s been continually growing over the past month, but yesterday it dropped behind the mark last achieved 20 days ago. Could the CIA or FBI be blocking or slowing down access my blog? Do you think that Network Neutrality is attainable in a world where torture camps are run by a country that claims to be bringing freedom to the world? Even if I am just paranoid – give some thought to it!
