If anyone googles me, they get 4,880,000 hits to search through.

And they will find I am a Civil War Union General who is not to be messed with.


If they google me and this email address, they get 574 hits mostly on Techwr-l. So the secret is not to give them this email address.

If they google just my name, and actually get to anything close to me, they find a large percentage of "People with name Sherman..." or the other identifier-type web sites that try to point to people and addresses to suck you into buying their locating services.


Don't knock the roofing job. It gives you lots of exercise, fresh air, a changing scenery, and freedom you don't find in tech writing. For one thing, if you decided to go on vacation for two weeks, you don't come back to find you are two weeks behind schedule with all that piled on your desk.

I understand and to some extent agree with your thought. But if a potential employer is so much of a prying squint that he'll peruse this list on the off chance he might see a job applicant's name, and is so petty that he'd refuse to hire someone because that someone vented a perfectly understandable frustration over being tied into knots like beelia has been, I personally wouldn't want to work for him anyway. I'd go back to roofing houses. Better to not get hired by him in the first place, then to find yourself too late in the kind of twisty office hell that is to be expected by a boss with that kind of personality.
