Monday / Tuesday 2-day selection testing & Vexen-Empowerment

I'm leaving at a ridiculous hour tomorrow morning to travel to a distant non-London part of the country for 10am... where I will be subjected to physical tests, medicals, examinations, all culminating in a final formal interview. For which I have bought a non-black suit and collar that would make a politician proud, and is now all ironed. The only thing I have to do is figure out how to pack the shirt as I don't have a suit-carrier!

I've spent months completing a physical fitness training regime designed to make sure I pass the tests, and months studying politics, sociology, military history and other stuff. Hopefully this is complete overkill: I will pass easily and with no problems.

Of course, this isn't the end of the selection tests, it's just a big step, but if I pass they might start paying me to continue training at some point this year - for a 3-month intensive period when I'll be mostly offline - and then for a 40-week period next year. Given that it's August soon, there's only 5 months left this year, which means I've only got 2 months to complete my CISCO networking course at College... there's nothing like PRESSURE to force my brain to remember that:

Printer ports, standard Centronic parralel ports, are assigned LTP port number 7, have output address starting at 378, and are given a very low IRQ number, along with floppy drives (6 or 7). AT & ATX power supplies' yellow cables supply +12v, blue is -12v, black is earth, red is +5v, white is -5v, orange is +3.3V (ATX power supplies only). Red Book CD format was released in 1986 (or so) by Sony & Phillips & set standard for audio CD format, Yellow Book for data format, then Green, Orange and Blue. Blue is multisession data & audio format used on DVDs, etc..

This year I've learned that _willpower_ makes my memory good and excellent, I used to have poor memory. I've also learned that when I dress as a mundane, in colored normal-looking clothes, I command the respect of the untermensch mundanes and become a charismatic leader & teacher.

So... hail fucking Satan, and tremble, you mortals!
