Mostly about my amusement

What did you do for YOUR summer vacation?

After Friday July 6th of this year I was officially no longer with my previous company. As of Monday July 30th I will be working at another financial company. Check out my LinkedIn page for more information about where.

It will be in Manhattan so I’m going to enjoy walking and eating good salads for lunch again. I’m really looking forward to this; me and idle time are not a good combination.

I used the month off well. I took the kids to their swimming lessons and they enjoyed having me around. I learned about adding JavaScript to my web page and finally figured out how to adjust the CSS for the WordPress theme I am using (I can control the horizontal and the vertical, do not adjust your TV set). I also caught up on the current episodes of the anime Claymore, Darker than Black, and saw the whole Ergo Proxy series.

Nice to have some free time once in a while 🙂 .

I’m returning to work as a consultant. I had been a consultant for years before becoming an employee in 2004 and I have to say that I personally prefer consulting. It might be a simplistic view but as an employee I had to worry about too many intangibles and politics.

The new job looks like I’ll have to get up to my elbows in network equipment and firewall design. It will include long hours, support calls, lots of change control, routing protocols, proxies, and application support.

Excellent, I so can’t wait.
