Email Farewell?

Yesterday, It was my last day in XYZ and it went so bad. I spent 1.5 years in XYZ and guess what? email farewell... I was shocked when I received email of CEO, giving farewell in just a two paragraph email. I seen other employees leaving XYZ and they had given a good farewell in a good respectable manner, with some discussion on what he/she has done for the company. I'm not sure may be they are not happy with my work @XYZ or the way I refused the offer to stay in XYZ. But whatever it was I felt extremely unhappy about it. I was going on a one month proper notice while back in the time of joining XYZ, they forced me to join in 12 days.

New Job

My new jobs is really exciting and it's more toward embedded programming approach. Although I'm not strong in assembly but I guess this is the strong learning point for me also the strong reason of leaving XYZ. My job responsibility includes coding some heavily optimized application using inline assembly and using the feature of AMD's L1 and L2 cache. I was reading some documents on application optimization on AMD opteron platform and looks really exciting to me. Also my job responsibility includes device driver writing skills which is some thing not as new to me as assembly.
