Whoa !

December 2!

Tomorrow marks the first time in 3 years I don't have a job to go to. I still have a few things I want to make an attempt at though. One is using Markybob's debian netinstaller cd on a system here, reading my mysql book to make an attempt at learning a bit more about it, and working on a scalable architecture approach that I may just get paid for.

This is actually a great month to be unemployed. I have two kids which I am really going to enjoy this year without having to rush off to meetings or be on the road on business trips.

I think there are lots of interesting possibilities for things I want to do. I am definitely interested in working on building out approaches to build custom Linux distributions which are modular, replicable, and scalable. I also want to do one of those Linux from scratch things just to play a bit and learn a bit more about how things work under the hood.

I also am being retained by Linuxcare as a contractor which means I am gone; but I am not gone. I always like decisive departures :)
