Big announcement.. and HOTorNOT is Hiring!

My doctor told me in August that i needed to change my lifestyle.. evidently my cholesterol is high and my liver is f'ed up.. basically for the last 6 (or 10) years, i've been eating like crap, not exercising enough, and drinking way too much. So i decided to stop drinking (for a while), have been eating healthier, and have been exercising. Believe it or not, I've dropped like 30 pounds in 3 months, which almost sounds unhealthy!!

All my newfound energy has led to me getting bored with what used to be a happy and content slacker lifestyle. I'm not sure this is a good thing,I was pretty happy before!!!

But anyway, since I'm not slacking as much anymore, I though it would be a good time for me to start working full time on HOTorNOT again (I stopped working on it full time about 2 years ago, and in the meantime I spent my time traveling, loafing, and starting Save My Ass and 10 over 100).

Jim and I shared a vision of what HOTorNOT could become 6 years ago (it's much cooler that what HOTorNOT is now, although we're pretty proud of what we have built so far), and its time to try and make that dream come true (or die trying!)

Apparently this work thing is reducing the time i have to date or travel, but I can honestly say that it's been a long time since i'd ever felt so anxious in the morning to get up and start working!! Usually I prefer to sleep in until lunchtime. Someone slap me, hard, i don't know who i am anymore!

Anyhow, wish me luck!!

oh, and by the way, for all of those people who have been asking us for years when HOTorNOT is going to become a real company and start hiring folks..we're looking for cool people to join us on our quest! If you are a good coder, are creative, and basically a cool person, send us an email at hotornotjobs (at) We're looking for smart dev and ops people who are into Linux, Mysql, PHP, AJAX, Flash, and/or anything else fun and interesting [MORE JOB DETAILS HERE] Trust me, the perks of working at HOTorNOT are quite good, and I honestly can't think of a website besides maybe myspace or facebook whose business cards are nearly as effective when meeting hotties. :)
