I've had 1 interview that resulted from a resume submission, and the 
jerks were too big of wusses to call me and give me the bad news.  They 
reposted the job.

If I can find something to pay the bills, I am going to take my 
pre-reqs for an accelerated BS in Nursing and get my RN.  I might even 
go into the military after that and get them to pay for my MS so I can 
become a Nurse Practioner.

(Army recently raised the age bar for RN's to *46* up from 42.)
