This monday I begun working at the Department of Informatics at the School of Economics and Commercial Law in Gothenburg University. My tasks there involves taking care of their web services and securing the long-term issues related to those services. This suits me rather well since it's something I've been doing for the FSF for a long time.

It also means that I will spend a small amount of my time doing system administration on their GNU/Linux boxes (primarily those running the web server), which also suits me well.

All in all, I'm fairly happy with the tasks and the environment around the university. Much, much, better than Volvo where I used to work. Much more freedom and a much better understanding of what is important.

The only downside right now is that someone seems to be feeding for christmas. Feeding on IP packets that is. Roughly 47% packet loss on the network between two buildings, but hopefully that will sort itself out eventually.

Things have obviously slowed down in the community as christmas approaches. Many I know are taking a few weeks off from hacking and so some things that I thought I would have time to do this week will have to be postponed until after christmas, which probably is a good idea anyway.
