SUP/LiveJournal: D

They just laid off half of their US staff including all product managers and engineers. (The numbers are apparently wrong, it was 13 out of 30 fired.) The fired employees had no advance notice and no severance package. Really classy, SUP. And, as [personal profile] scrottie has pointed out, it's not going to be easy to replace these people.

On a happier note, however...

Bank of America: A

Someone stole my credit card number and started using it to make fraudulent online purchases yesterday; they had caught it by this morning and called me. I gave my permission to close the account and I'll have a new card by the end of the week. No expense to me, minimal hassle, all I have to do is sign a form that they'll send to me verifying that I did not make the fraudulent purchases. I can't say I've ever put much thought into what it would be like to have my credit card number stolen, but this is certainly way less of a problem than I thought it would be when I noticed the charges on my account last night.

And now the [community profile] go_exchange reveals are up! I wrote Teatime with Brother Francis for [personal profile] toasty_fresh! And my gift (which I was remiss in pimping at the time, due to traveling without reliable internet) was art(!!!) by the wonderful [personal profile] ghot. It's a beautiful watercolor of Agnes Nutter knitting a Gryffindor scarf!! :D

Go look and tell her it's amazing!

And here's the re-post of Teatime, for my own purposes and for those of you who may not have read it yet. I'd never written in the Good Omens verse before and I was really apprehensive, but it was a lot of fun and I enjoyed it. I'm pleased with how this turned out and I'll be back next year!
