long time no post, over a month. been busy with a bunch of things, particularly the job and finding another. the former is coming together at last after banging my head against brick walls for the last 6 months or so. my new boss is such a breath of fresh air after the crap i've had to deal with. understands OSS, laid back, and he listens to me. unfortunately i've already made my mind up to leave the place, they've done too much damage already for me to stay. did first and second interviews for a very promising looking position. laid back atmosphere, exactly the sort of work i want, no team to lead. haven't heard back as yet. very frustrating, making it difficult to plan stuff. i've just booked a conference in the south of france at the end of the month knowing there is a possibility I'll be leaving two weeks later. what can you do? ;)
apachecon on monday :) looking forward to it, both for the actual event and for the fact it will give me three days of peace from the office. the last one (Orlando) was fantastic. not so exotic this time, in fact I can walk there from my flat in less than an hour.
working at home today on automating some stats for out intranet. the powers that be have pissed around for so long (not) deciding on a stats package i've gone ahead and put webalizer in instead. works a treat, simple, easily scripted, fast, no faffing with some poxy gui and crap NT ported app that dumps core every five minutes (webtrends..). if anyone has any good experiences with a heavy weight stats package (30+ sites) please let me know.
listening a lot to badly drawn boy, and i bought it before he won the prize too.
entertaining some friends for dinner tomorrow night, still haven't decided what to cook. other than that it should be a nice quiet weekend.
