LogJam 3.1 [Aug. 12th, 2002|04:10 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
I'm using LogJam 3.1.0 and it totally rocks. And because GTK 2.0 rocks. I like the frilly About box with the scrolling names of people who've helped with it. It's cool seeing so many people's names I know. And my own name is still in there, even though I haven't done anything with it since the first version or so. Whoa, and there are tooltips saying what each person did. And you can click it to move the list without scrolling.

Oh my... so much fun in the about box. Time to play with the rest of it.

BTW, I changed the comment setting on my journal back so everybody can reply. I miss meeting new people occasionally. But, I turned on comment screening from non-friends, as I want to test that feature out... haven't used it yet.

I burnt my tongue on a burrito.

Question: can you get unemployment in the state of California if you voluntarily leave a job?

Maybe things have changed since my last claim in CA, but the only time they'll pay up is if you got "laid off" from a job. Sometimes you can sneak an occasional firing in under the bar, but if it was an "I quit" situation they assume you've gotten severence, saw it coming, and had time to line something else up.

You could always say you got laid off and hope they don't hear anything to the contrary. It's iffy, but I drew unemployment for the full 8 month term from my last job (fired).

As far as I know, in any state if you leave a job of your own free will you're not entitled to unemployment, same as with getting fired.

Re: unemployment - no, at least not under normal circumstances, not to my knowledge.

A: sometimes, but not usually. More than anything, it depends on how cooperative your (just recently ex-) employer is, but each case is decided individually.

Won't screening comments just doubly flood your inbox?

Ever have one of those microwavable burritos and bite into and the center is frozen. That is way worse my friend.

I agree emphatically. Then again, there's a button on the microwave here marked: "Frozen Burrito". ;]

had a conversation about this last week..

In Nebraska you can get unemployment if you quit, in Georgia you have to have a really good reason for leaving, such as a large pay cut, stress, or them working you overtime and not paying you, pressure, etc...

1256. An individual is disqualified for unemployment compensation benefits if the director finds that he or she left his or her most recent work voluntarily without good cause or that he or she has been discharged for misconduct connected with his or her most recent work.
"Good cause" is defined in later paragraphs. If you're moving away to accompany a spouse, fiancee, or domestic partner, or if your employer was discriminating against you, or if you're fleeing the area because of a domestic abuse situation, then that's explicitly defined as "good cause", but not much else qualifies.

Yes you can claim.....

Yes you can claim unemployment "if conditions change" to conclude a "just cause"......that "can" include "at times" reduced hours and transportation.....or what could be called a forced quit....or reduced hours that can warrent partial unemployment.---Jim

About box stuff is sorta weird, 'cause some people just did about five minutes of work while others (you, Gaal) have made significant contributions. I figured a heirarchy would be too hard to make fair so I instead randomize it each time the about box loads:

/* randomly permute the list of contributors. */
static void
rearrange_contribs() {
    int i, j;
    Contributor t;

    for (i = 0; i < CONTRIBCOUNT; i++) {
        j = rand() % CONTRIBCOUNT;
        t = contribs[i];
        contribs[i] = contribs[j];
        contribs[j] = t;
