I’m job hunting. There’s just no joy in my job at the moment. I finally finished what I started three years ago, which was to build a system which was stable (relatively), scaleable and easily upgraded. There are no challenges, beyond getting through the day without going postal, left at The Gas.

When I started out, before stupid management turned me into a bitter man, I was into it for the challenge. It was all about doing things better than the lame lifers I worked for. I was reading Wired and Microserfs and wanted to do cool stuff like that. Now I’ve been there, done it and got several cool T shirts from all over the country. My reading habits have changed, now it’s history books, particularly war ones. Changing the business doesn’t interest me any more, but if they want to plan a commando raid on Powergen’s headquarters, I’m the man!
