the Trev Report (09/25/2002)

Hello all and welcome to the Trev Report for this month. I apologize for not having one last month, but I was so busy looking for a job I didn't do one.
I am still out of work, BTW, so if anyone has connections that could help me, that would be great!
Now on with the report!

Trev's Lovelife
Signe and I are doing well. Not having a job can be hard on a relationship sometimes, but we are working through it together.
Signe is still at the Oaks Theater and looking for a new job as well, while working her job. We are both toying with the idea of the JET program as well. Which would be a fun thing to go and do while the economy is still in its downturn.
We have also started watching Buffy together. We have finished the first 2 seasons, and will be getting seasons 3-6 on tape soon.

Trev's Anime
Well since last time we talked I have watched all of Macross, Jubei-chan, and a few other shows I have barrowed from friends.
No-Name is running along as great as ever. I love that club; it is fun to work with the club to show people cool stuff (TM).
The FanimeCon staff meetings have started. I will be the Panels Coordinator once again, so if anyone has panel ideas email me at and it will get to me. I have hired Andrew Tei (from No-Name) as my second this year, so that should be really fun working together.
Signe and I have also been hanging out a lot with Judy and Kel, the Stitchin' Babes. Doing lots of fun anime-related stuff. :D

trv no go
I haven't been t Go club in ages, but I keep up my online games at I really enjoy playing there with people. I am also working my way though the Learn To Play Go series by Janice Kim, which supposes to be really well written.

Trev's Computers
My computers are still keeping strong. Mike Chu has found us a really cool aquarium screen saver, so it is happy.
Thank goodness nothing has gone wrong with them.
Speaking of that...

Trev's Car
So, a couple of days ago our car officially died for good, but Signe has to work and I had an interview 45 miles away today. We needed a car! Fortunately we have been researching this for quite some time and went to our favorite dealer H and H Motors and got ourselves a used car...a used Mercedes-Benz! Woohoo!
We now have a used 1993 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.6, white. It is pretty cool, V6, rides smooth, etc. We are way stoked about it!

Trev's E/N site...
As if the Trev Report isn't enough, I now have a blog on LiveJournal. It is at So if your monthly spam from me isn't enough, you can get daily spam there. :P

Trev's DDR
Signe and I have recently gotten into Dance Dance Revolution, a fun dancing game! We are both completely hooked. We are barrowing Judy and Kel's DDR pads for the Playstation and we play at least once a day. For those of you that know we can do 5 feet with A's now and I just passed my first 6 feet song (Trip Machine) a couple days ago. Woot!

Trev's Job Hunt
The job hunt goes. I am still looking, but I have broadened my search. I am looking for anything in DTS, SQA, Technical Support, or Software Programming. I just came back from a Tech. Support interview in Brisbane (CA) today, so we will see how that goes.

Trev's Books
Well, even though I went to WorldCon last month in San Jose, promoting FanimeCon, I didn't buy any super cool books there. I did see lots of famous people though, like George R.R. Martin, Harry Turtledove, Patrick Steward, and Terry Pratchett. Oh and did you all know that the Wild Cards stories are being started again (from where they left off). That should make at least Scott (who introduced me to them) excited.
I've actually been reading programming books on C++, Python, and Java lately though. Just trying to beef up my skills and learn some new stuff while I am unemployed.

That's about it for this edition of the Trev Report. Feel free to email me anytime I am usually around and I love hearing from all of you. Until next month, take care!
