life
    It's official, here and here.

    It wasn't a great surprise to any of us at that point, we had spend the last month assuming this would be the outcome, but it still is sad. The engineering team we had was truly awesome and I'll miss the people.

    So now what ? Well, frankly I'm been more and more dissappointed with the gnome community as such, so I won't be weeping if I'm not getting a job in some gnome/linux/free-software company, even though it'd be nice. I'd like to work on setting up a server for the trilobite-install stuff, frankly, I still believe it's the coolest apt-get clone for rpm distros. If anyone wants to work on this, feel free to contact me (eskil at eskil dot dk).

    So now I'm looking for a new job, and it's not going well. Even though I've only had two interviews the outlook isn't good. Both companies turned me down for hard-to-parse reasons and I suspect that it's the H1B visa issue. Most other companies reeled backwards as soon as they realised that they would have to sponsor a visa transferral. But I have about six weeks till the cash dries up, so I won't be planning relocation for the next five weeks.

    Ikke meget at sige. Jeg vil foretraekke at blive her, da en flytning igen simpelthen bare er for besvaerligt. Men hvis der ikke er jobs at faa (industrien har virkeligt taget et nedsving), saa maa jeg vel nok se mig om efter groennere marker.

    Hvad gik galt med biksen ? Tja, daarligt tidspunkt at soege investering, ideen var ok (havde sine mangler). Derudover var der en del skidte ting, f.eks. hyrede vi alt for mange marketingstumper som bare slugte loen og saa smarte ud, brugte for meget energi paa at lave en nyserlig filhaandteringsdimmelut og alt for faa folk til at implementere de ting som vi skulle tjene penge paa. Intet som bagklogskab.

    (summary for the danish impaired : fuck off).
