If you frequent the Z-Issue, you may have noticed that there is now a counter in the sidebar. I received some news recently, and to me, it’s really exciting (enough for me to put a countdown widget on the ol’ blog). 🙂 I’ve been a Senior Linux Engineer for quite some time, and my current employer has decided to transition my role from Systems Engineering at the Lab level to a completely new position focusing on various needs of the organisation. Some of my responsibilities will be: maintenance and improvements to our internal systems (primarily Linux); internal documentation of our technologies and procedures; training of our newly-hired employees, as well as ongoing training for our current staff; working with our various development teams on streamlining their processes, and a lot of other fascinating areas.
Along with this great promotion, I get to move back to a city that I really enjoy, and think of as one of my home towns–Saint Louis, Missouri, United States. A have a lot of family and friends there, and really can’t wait to get back to see all of them on a regular basis. The combination of the new responsibilities, new title, being home, and getting to work remotely makes for an ideal situation toward which I’ve worked for many years.
Not all that much longer now. 🙂
