Journal: the last couple of years

Journal by Teunis

I had a big contract fail and almost completely bankrupt me. These things happen... so for the last few years I've been rebuilding. I spent a year driving forklift at a warehouse (VERY enlightening - I learnt a lot about people and communications there), two years at alphatrade.com as a network administrator (job slightly more complex, a lot of interplay with marketing. Lots of fun but the crash hit work hard). I spent a year and a half just -recovering- as the forklift job ended when I got injuries that needed time to heal. Now I'm working as a computer tech and starting to pick up code again. I'm not yet sure what to work on but I'm fascinated by anything OpenGL, communications, video based, audio based and database based. I've a weakness for GIS-related but haven't really worked in the field since the early 90s. pidgin looks like it needs some things. We'll see...

Journal: These days

Journal by Teunis
Working at Century Office Machines. Definitely not computer related. Actually we only have a web page because the boss thought it'd be a fun thing to do and I run a webserver in my off time so...
Anyways, working with machines from various pre-computer era is fun. There IS a computer here but we don't use it for anything other than research.

I have to admit I'm enjoying it but...
...I miss programming.

What is wanted is not the will to believe, but the will to find out, which is the exact opposite. -- Bertrand Russell, "Skeptical Essays", 1928
