    Is yours the other floating island? I ran across it early on and I've been asking everyone who it belonged to. It's not far off the west coast of the main island.


    quite possibly. I have been expanding it and so far I believe I have gotten all the outer walls done, and one or two round towers. It should have a farming area on the island next to it.

    Looks like a spawn point needs to be Adjusted Firefly.


    Not sure I understand what your saying, but i'm pretty sure I have messed something up as I had to basically light the entire thing up to keep spawns out.

    So much better designed then mine. I have no idea where mine actually is other then it's off the shore of an Island I apparently share with someone else. It's sitting on top of a fairly large strip mining effort as well.

    That is, your previous employer sounds like a real douchnozzle.


    which is the reason I parted ways with them. My wife had our first child so I took a week off work to stay with her and help get everything situated. Day 2 they were literally knocking at my door asking me if I was ever going to come back to work. (When I say Literally, I mean literally. My boss was at my front door for the sole purpose to ask me if I was coming back to work.)

    I am beginning 2 new contracts for clients. Finally putting my ongoing client into a more support mode thank god.

    @jon.kiparsky. I had an employer who worked the same way. They told me to go out and buy a new phone, laptop, etc., but when I parted ways with them they expected me to leave those devices behind because they were paid for with company money. Now, when my employer wants me to go out and buy something, I always use my own money and negotiate them to pay some sort of allowance on it. Be it they pay 10% of my internet service now that I have a laptop I will use for work or they pay part of the phone bill for the phone I use. That way they technically pay me back for the device over time, but I get to keep it when/if I part ways because the actual finds for the device can't be traced back to the company.
  5. In Topic: Placement company scam

    Posted 28 Mar 2014

    So I worked with a kid from overseas (Not India but that region) and we got to talking about this exact thing. There are companies that claim to be recruiting firms, but are actually just a guy or two who try and scam recruitment fees. What they do is call around to anyone within the US on any kind of visa that allows them to work, H1b, Student, ect. and asks them if they would like to work for them. At that point they make up a totally fake resume for you adding in anything that will make you look good to potential companies. When your resume gets accepted they have a guy, who they pay to take the phone interviews and pass them, take the actual interview call for you. This person will typically be extremely knowledgeable and ,like your person, have a great command of the language in question. They will also typically deny in person interviews because they can't risk sending you the real person. Once you've accepted and made an offer for the person they will then call up who ever they've decided will actually fill the position and tell them to get to the job at X time. Sometimes that means they need to move states away from where they are.

    It is actually very common, to my surprise. In the 2 years I got to work with him he would probably get 2-3 calls a month for the entire 2 years from different firms wanting him to come work for them. They would all tell him not to worry about his work experience because they would "Pad" his resume and have someone interview for him.
