Author of libency, a tool to allow access to the various Star Trek encyclopediae. I used to be maintainer for the (old) application manager for GPE, and did pieces of work on other things (like NMF, Ataxx, Pegged, Time-tracker, libgpewidget, etc.). I've hacked on Gaim a little bit too, but not much that was suitable for the main tree. These days life is pretty quiet, I spend most of my free time with my family, and don't get time to spend on personal projects like I used to! :)

Robert Mibus: Funny story really

I got an unexpected email of someone I didn't know, working for a marketing company, pointing me to an online quiz.

Not one to be led around by marketing, I emailed back and asked exactly what the deal was - is this some sort of bizarre attempt at astroturfing or something? To my surprise, I got an honest response back the next day, explaining about how I was picked as a recipient.

Since I'm especially appreciative of honest marketers, here we go:

This quiz was constructed by TheSleepRoom - the best place to buy a bed online

PS. If you don't find it at all amusing, that's your own problem :-P

Robert Mibus: Three months and eight megabits

Well, it's been three months at Internode - a bit over, actually.

And... it's cool here. I really like that I can focus on just sysadmin work, instead of trying to divide my attention sixty ways. (That's Anton's job now :-).

And I still get to spend time on forums (think Whirlpool), though it's not quite as easy to justify! I also have had quite a few freebies already (coffee mugs, shirts, hats, etc - from node itself and vendors).

The SAN failure was... interesting. Everyone was pretty calm, despite the calamity, and everything got done and done well. Despite the email issue continuing through the weekend, almost everything was up and running pretty quickly after the failure.

Other cool things include the company-supplied MBP. I always had a real soft spot for OSX, and now it's my primary OS. I bought myself a Dell Mini 9 for the bus trip, and installed Ubuntu. Totally awesome, ranks amongst the best $600 I ever spent!

Oh, and I'm on a RIM where I'm living - but at least this time, (a) it's DSL-capable, (b) I'm really close, and (c) Internode pays - so I get ~7.5Mbit. I also now have a Nodephone2 account; cheap calls (from Aldinga, the number of STD calls we make suck). More importantly, the number starts with 08-75 instead of the 08-85 normal for the area - the puzzled look on people's faces is worth it!

I do miss my friends though. Hopefully we'll be able to catch up in the near future ;-)

Robert Mibus: End of an Era

Well, it's done. Over. My last day at Ballistic Media (CGSociety) is now finished.

To my friends - for five years, my family - good bye. Keep in touch!
