I'm not looking for a repeat of 2007!
Going on a real vacation for the first time in ages is already planned.
It'll be interesting to see what else I can change.

Work

All work and no play...


I haven't blogged about my work situation since Bye, bye Venice when I left Joost.
A few things have happened since then. First I spent 6 months consulting back at ... where I used to work before the jump to joost, although this time in a different department and supposedly doing system integration on Weblogic (although I spent a lot more time prepping a zones on T2000 consolidation project).
For the last two months, I've been back in a regular System Management job at Mach.com wrangling Solaris 24/7. This is bordering on breaking my old wish never to return to a Telco job, but since we're mostly taking money from telcos, I've decided that it isn't too big a problem. I'm also having a very good time mucking about with systems that have been around forever and getting to know Sun Cluster a lot more.
Right now, there's more than enough to keep me busy, but I'm hoping that things will slow down a bit by the end of the year such that I can again find the time to do more at the ASF than work on keeping the Solaris machines up and running.


ApacheCon 2006US

Right now ApacheCon is going full speed in Austin.
I'm not anywhere near Austin and will be missing ApacheCon for the first time since I started going in 2001. I did have a talk scheduled that I was really looking forward to (especially since it has been rejected the last two times I proposed it), but I "ran out of time and energy" and decided that it would be better to cancel.
I wish all the best to those lucky bastards who get to be there and promise to turn up at the next ApacheCon and hand over the beers I owe various people (anyone who thinks to collect interest on owed beer better let me know now so that I can get it opened and set aside in a glass ;).
