Journal willyhill's Journal: Changes 10

First off, sockpuppet log updated. I have to hand it to the guy that runs that weird boycott site, he operates wide in the open. And it's just too funny to see him repeatedly asking twitter to stop.

Anyway, in the next few days the log will be transferred to a separate account dedicated only to maintaining that journal entry. Its purpose will be made clear in the profile area, and it will not be used to post. The account will be passed around as needed when the current maintainer finds he has no time (like me!). If not, then I guess it will just wither and die, but I hope by then it would have served a good purpose.

I am now actually in the process of moving to another city so I have no time for anything. I enjoyed my semi-retirement and 100% virtual telecommuting way too much it seems, and all good things must come to an end. The company I'm working for is actually finding strength in the general economic weakness, and I think they have very good products that deserve a chance to make it in the market. From a 3-man boutique software shop project to a fully-funded privately held corporation in three years flat (with no debt), along with an impressive client portfolio and almost 100 employees worldwide now. Nothing to sneeze at, and hopefully exciting times ahead for us. In any case, I was starting to get bored. My kids say I'm a workaholic, and they are absolutely right *grin*

Funny how this Slashdot thing has served as a sort of blog for me in the past few months. One of the nice things about the new company is that they provide a public-facing blog for the management team and most employees. I hope to take advantage of that, if only to speak about the drab technical details of managing IT infrastructure and reassure clients that we have our eyes on the prize. Probably no mentions of twitter (hah!) but my time here has certainly helped me better understand the power behind the software I've been using for the last 10 years or so. Zealotry aside, I believe free software is going to grow even more, especially in the server space, and will eventually occupy the one half of the IT sphere of operations that Microsoft will simply never be able to provide because their products are simply targeted at other things.

Anyway, I'll post a final journal entry in the next few days to let everyone know where the log is being kept. Take care everyone!
