Journal Journal: oh well

I should have kept my eyes open scanning for that trouble on the horizon...

Looks like we will be bought over and chucked in the bin.
Time to develop those perl/python skills in the long winter evenings...

Journal Journal: This is not the developer you're looking for

Well, they've reviewed the reorg so I'm not off to the mainframe team (I think). I'm off to another team but we (there's some other PC developers in the same boat) don't meet the new manager til next week. No real idea what the team does but hopefully I'll find out soon. Not holding my breath though.

I'd say it can't be any worse but right now I just don't want to tempt fate!

And I have a dentist appointment this afternoon. I just can't stop thinking about the Marathon Man.

Journal Journal: Ah crap

We're having a reorganisation at work (again) so after 8 years as a PC developer (VB, Oracle, HTML, ASP, CSS etc) I'm getting moved onto a mainframe team where they do no PC development AT ALL. My new boss doesn't seem too pleased either - he's getting a whole bunch of PC folk and he has no idea why.

Time for a change? Just realised I haven't had a chance to do any good development for almost 2 years. That's not a good thing.

(I wonder if anyone is reading this? LOL)


Journal Journal: Colorblind James Experience

If you're here you might have wondered who the Colorblind James Experience in my sig is. Sadly they are no longer with us (Colorblind James himself has passed on) but they're one of my all time favourite bands. Their sound is erm... hard to describe but pretty unique (and very addictive).

You could try here or buy their greatest hits. (Even if you don't buy you can have a listen there).
