OpenBSD Journal

Got a new job.

Contributed by Dengue on from the krazy-kids-with-new-jobs dept.

Ok, this isn't OpenBSD related, so you can probably ignore it. It is instead an apology for the stagnation that is occuring here at OpenBSD Journal. Truth is, I have a new job. I am now working in the IS department of a large firm, on their Hardware & Network team and am slowly getting used to a completely different environment, and a long daily commute (at least until I move). I'm sorry things have slowed here, but I expect this to be the case for another few weeks as I get the hang of things. I have to get up REALLY early in the morning now, about 4 hours earlier than I'm used to :-(

On the plus side, I'm paid well, they'll relocate me, and I have a lot of really cool toys to play with. On the minus side, everything I work with is RS6k/AIX, with a "no freeware" policy. Oh well, can't win 'em all. I gave up a lot of freedom at my old job for an opportunity to work in a big shop, we'll have to see if it was worth it.

    let me be the first to congratulate you....they might have a "no freeware" policy, but that won't stop you from wearing your OpenBSD t-shirt..will it now? ;-)

    maybe work on your co-workers during lunch break?

    First of all, let me say ...
    Great site. I check it out several times a week.
    Would love to see it stay within a technical and intelligent scope.

    Regarding AIX. I have spent many many enjoyable nights working with it. mksysb rocks. LV management is amazing.
    Too bad its not free :-)
    So, my #1 choice is OpenBSD.

    Regarding the shirts. I wear them to work all the time. They start wonderful conversations. Not to mention the requests for my "opinion" regarding security matters.
    (sometimes these shirts cause people to magically get me free beer but ...
    ssh, don't tell anyone!)

    AIX rules, it grows on you.
