It's been a while since my last diary entry, but really,
little worth mentioning until recently. With the exception
of the time
spent at OLS and moving homes, the time from early May until
been a mundane routine of monotony.
Yosh and I moved from Fremont to
to a nice 3-bedroom house, and my girlfriend, Doris moved in
She's hard at work on her first year of law school at Santa
about 4 blocks away from us. All is well at home... we
split the $2650/month rent to 1000/1000/650... $650 for
Doris, being the poor, hungry student.
What's not well is that Doris lost both of her grandparents
on her dad's
side in about 36 hours... her grandma died (she had
and hasn't been healthy for years), and then as a result,
grandfather committed suicide (he lived for her). So on top
stress Doris has as a first year law school student (by far
year), she now has to deal with this huge loss. I'm just
glad I can be
there to comfort her. The dual-funeral will be this weekend
Angeles, and I'm taking Friday off to drive down Thursday
night so Doris
and her brother can join up with their families as early as
I've also changed jobs... yesterday was my last day at
Linuxcare, and today
is my first
their Oakland, CA
quite a distance to drive, so I'll only be going into the
office once or
twice a week, and the work can be done from anywhere. My
responsibilities include all things SPARC/Linux-related...
which is my
hobby in this whole Linux thing, so I'm looking forward to
having a lot
of fun. I know people are going to ask why I left
answer is that I left for personal reasons, that I was more
in the opportunity at SuSE, and so forth... I definitely
the best of luck.
One thing though... I've gotten some skin rashes on my arms,
and a mysterious bald spot on my chin. The more I think
about it, the more is makes sense to me that these might be
stress related. Besides some work stuff (that I can't
openly talk about), I was also doing a stressful job hunt,
trying to find the right place to go. One place in
particular was really bad at getting back to me on things,
and kept me waiting for over 2 months in total while they
figured out what was going on (while not telling me).
That's basically it for now... oh yeah... and whoever posted
to a zillion job/resume sites, I'd like to send a big "fuck
Actually, if your intentions were good, then that's cool...
but I prefer
to take care of that kind of stuff for myself. As a result
of the cool new job that I figure I could be sticking with
I've taken my resume off my website...
