Wow, it has been way too long since I last did a blog post. A lot has changed in the last month for me. First off, sorry for the abrupt departure from Twitter but it was just taking up too much of my time and became a bit obsessive. You can still reach me via email (find my email address on my “About” page) or leave a comment on my blog. I recently was offered an amazing opportunity with a defense contracting firm out in Phoenix, Arizona to be their lead Hardware Engineer. What a title, it doesn’t really say much about what I will be doing, but it encompasses a ton of different responsibilities namely, hardware configuration (duh), virtualization architecture, networking, programming (Shell, Perl), and a little bit of systems administration to boot. In short it will give me a great opportunity to do more research and interact with the latest and greatest hardware and software available whether GOTS or COTS (if you don’t know those acronyms, Google away).
A la Lebron James, albeit without the 1 hour ESPN debacle, “This January, I will be taking my talents to Arizona! Phoenix to be exact, the Valley of The Sun! This is where I grew up, so it is a move back home, and a great job opportunity. I’ve been slacking on the blogging, take this as my excuse, I’ve been swamped for the past 2 months. In the weeks to come I’m looking to drop at least 5 new blog posts that I have backlogged and I promise they will be good ones. I’ve lined up some really nice contest prize donations from a couple of awesome vendors as well, look for those in the next few weeks also. If you are reading this and happen to be a member of the Phoenix VMUG, count me in! I’ll be at the January meeting!
