New job.

0 min read
Woot! Got a new job. As of February 4th, I'm part of the Unix Sysadmin team for a well-known software company. This one isn't in the Fortune 500, but maybe that's a good thing? Certainly won't miss the bureaucracy of the old one. The downside is I'm going to be really busy for a while. Apologies to those whose comments and favs have not been responded to. Between looking for work, interviewing, and starting work, I haven't had much time for art.

Laid off :(

0 min read
After eight years with the company, I've been laid off. They did an across the board cut - even in groups that were *making money* (like mine). Shit. Worst economy since the Great Depression and I'm looking for a job. Know anyone who is looking for a Unix SysAdmin?

Woo hoo! Can't hide my pride in my country. After eight years of having a President who was both an embarrassment to the nation and a threat to the world, it will be so nice to have THIS man in the White House. Will everything be different on January 9th? Nope. We'll just be starting-out in the right direction. Barack Obama is bright, well spoken, and has shown excellent judgment. Best of all, he knows what the word diplomacy means. Hopefully he won't waste any time in putting an end to Bush's illegal domestic spy program. Obama! Obama!

Congratulations on the job, awesome!

:w00t!: :clap: :highfive:
Thank you! I'm very happy to be working again, and happier still to have a job I like.
Wishing you and yours a blessed holiday.
(Halloween rocked!)
/me hangs his head in shame for nor responding earlier.

Thank you! Between the lay-off and bad weather, it was a weird holiday this year. The new year is looking MUCH better. More about that later...

How about you? Did Santa make it South of the Arctic Circle? ;) Oh, and what's this I hear about a volcano?
Ahhh that's ok, no problem. Glad 2008 is gone? I am.

Hope your 2009 is great! Ummmm, we be waiting on Mt. Redoubt to blown her brains out across the sky.:eyes:
So far, she hasn't.
My next life I'm gona be a volcano.
Yuppers Santa dropped in last year with a cruise to Mexico, mercy was it ever hot, went from -20F to +86F, got a lovely cold too.

Take care, enjoy spring!
