Hello back! Glad you joined the site!

I check out youre website, pretty cool! One thing that sucks about youre site is that WRX thing! You should hand it over to me.

Wish I had a good paying job to own a WRX!!

One more thing

Nice Cad work! I remember about 4 years ago I took a high school class with cad was fun but frustrating at times.

How's the Cad scene, with job? How did you learn CAD? Technical School? 4 Year college?

Fill me in with some details, I'm having problems find a graphic design job. Maybe CAD might be interesting to check out.
Thanks.

I'm UE too... :(

Well, I was never employed... haha... still jobless after graduated from ArtCenter four months ago...

The economy is really bad... I guess... hope things get better in 2003

I should have gone to an engineering school instead of drawing stupid little car renderings... :eek:

Hey LBC!! Nice work!!
I tried to learn AutoCAD when AutoCAD was in version 9. It was way too hard for me back then...

Sniady? Do you have a degree in Graphics?

Checkout www.coroflot.com a lot of my schoolmates found their jobs over there. Way better website than hotjobs.com and monsterjob.

Here in Massachusetts you can get up to 32 weeks, if you get an extension you get an additional 12 weeks for UI.

The problem is, I had a job 3 weeks into being UE. I was suppost to go work for Wyeth Phramisutical doing machine drafting. I went for an Interview, they loved me, and I got the offer on the table. What ended up happening was after a few days of waiting for the temp. agency to clean up the paperwork with there HR department, they implented a hiring hold 2 days before I was suppost to start. Ever since then, I have had no luck getting a job. Even tried applying at retail stores, car dealerships, recruiter positions, sales positions, etc... Nobody wants to hire me for 2 reasons, im overqualified, or im not experienced in that field. It really sucks not having the money to support your hobbys or live the lifestyle you used to live. :mad: :(

Yeah I do have something on the internet but I forgot the link.

The logo. I pulled a few logos off some sites and started to copy it in Illustrator to have a vector clean file. In the process of doing that Simon found a .ai file (illustrator file). Ready to be used!

Here's something I made about 2 years ago.

Thats pretty cool! :D

smestas, you gotta GTV? I have a silver 1972 Fiat 128SL with only 6,000km in near perfect showroom condition sitting in my garage in my house in italy, and a 1974 Fiat 500 with a good amount of mileage I use as my daily driver when I visit. Thinking about bringing over the 128 to use for Auto-X'ing, do you Auto-X your GTV?

No I dont have a GTV. Right now I'm without an Alfa but I've been on the hunt. I'm definitely lookin for a good GTV or a project GTV that I can build. Once I get it Im planning on doing a whole online restoration of the car so others can view it and share as I go along. Sort of an online team effort.

I cant believe that you have a "1972 Fiat 128SL with only 6,000km" do you have any pics you can post. I'd like to see them.

Please don’t hate me because I'm GTV-less!

One of my main reasons that I don’t have one is because I to am unemployed. I've been out of a solid job for over a full year! I got all of you guys beat. Since my layoff I've been able to make some income doing contract work. Only thing about that is its feast or famine. FYI I'm in famine mode. Unfortunatly for web designers/developers its going to take a bit while the economy recovers. So with my free time I thought I would use my talents for creative and a purposeful venue and up came AlfaBB with Sniady. As for owning an Alfa I'm sure I'll get there soon I just got to keep my head up durring the storm.

PS - Anyone want to buy a 1lb block of cheese! Or should I post that in the for sale forum?

I think we will look for moderators down the line when the BB picks up. We just started this site and honestly it's still slow. We have 100 plus members but not all of them post. Maybe if things pick up like the Impreza.net site(wrx board) then we can go scout out some moderators.
We'll keep you in mind if things do pick up. Right now its super mellow.
