Moments you feel fucking boss #73: When you find out that the company you used to work for that you fucking hated and always knew was run by dodgy ****s files for bankruptcy. And the only person you gave two shits about who still worked there gets another better job straight away.

Glad I got out three months ago? You're damn fucking right. The writing was on the wall for sooooo long.

Looks like they're doing the dodgy again, though (SHOCK) and phoenixing straight away. Offering new contracts to the people they made redundant. Already being reported by disgruntled ex-employees, so hopefully the SAFA prick who runs it will get deported.

This is a good day.

Process so far.

E3 Visas are for Australians ONLY. In any year there are about 10,500 allocated but only about 1/3rd of those are used. They are significantly easier to get than a L1/L2 intracompany transfer or H1B/greencard type of visa. Note that they are valid for two years only, but Ive heard the renewal process is as simple as booking an interview and getting rubber stamped. If you have a spouse he/she may work under the E3D visa if you get sponsored for an E3.

1. Find a job in the US that requires a degree. That's probably the hardest part. My company offered me a role in the US but Im sure if you google or search some expat forums you can find recruiters who can assist.
2. Get the company to file a LCA (Labor Condition Application / form ETA-9035) online. Your employer can fill it out online and file it electronically with the US Department of Labor. The purpose of this is to show that your employer will be paying you fairly in accordance with your new role and location.
3. Once the LCA is approved and signed by the company, fill in a DS-160 online form (non-immigrant visa application where you specify that you're an E3)
- You'll need a passport photo to upload. I just took a pic with a white background and cropped it to the 600x600 (square dimensions required). It cant have shadows, must be well lit, etc etc.
4. Pay the $270 application fee (and wait 24 hours if you do it online)
5. Book the interview at the consulate.
- Take evidence that you have ties to Australia (car title, mortgage details, etc). You will need to demonstrate that you are a temporary worker in the US.
- Take passport with 5 spare pages that wont run out during the visa period.
- Take some spare passport photos
- Take the DS-160 confirmation printout
- Take the signed LCA from your company (aka form ETA-9035)
- Take your university degree and transcript (and copies)
6. Get visa, move to US, ???, profit.

It's not for you. Barcraft is competitive Starcraft viewing at it's highest (as possible in Australia). If you don't know what you're looking for or talking about or you don't even know who Moonglade is, then it might be a bit overwhelming.

If you have a partition or even 2 separate drives containing separate OS's the booted OS has no write access on the non booted one in a malware sense right?

depends if the 'other' partition is readable/writable at the OS level.

If it isn't mapped/visible to the OS then malware ain't going to write to it.

I assume you're talking about Windows. So if the second disk is formatted in NTFS, which it would be if we're talking 2xWindows, and if it were presented to the booted Windows (say as D: drive) then yes it could write to it.

If you want to achieve to Windows installs that can't write to each other, just don't present the paritionts/disks to each other via Disk Manager.

Technically yes it could (eg viruses that overwrite boot sectors) but its pretty unlikely as they typically target the biggest opportunity and scanning for unmounted partitions isnt a huge priority. Unless you got infected with a Flamer variant in which case the US/Israel is about to fuck you up.
