I’m Back! PSX64 Sold Out (more soon)! New Job!

Lots of exclamation marks up there!

The Big Project Done

First off, I’m back to blogging after a 2-3 week hiatus finishing up fairly large programming project for work. The site has launched and things have (mostly) wrapped up. I’m glad to have done it for the experience, both the project itself and the issues that can go along with a large project, but I can’t explain how relieved I am to be done with it as well. I’ve read many horror stories concerning crunch time at dev houses (some of my favorites concerning projects at Commodore in On the Edge: the Spectacular Rise and Fall of Commodore, READ this book if you haven’t) – and while this one wasn’t a “pitch a sleeping bag under your desk for two weeks” kind of scenario, it was definitely a working into the wee hours of the morning for a while kind of deal. But it’s over, I had a very relaxing weekend of some serious video game playing, and I’m rested up for…

My New Job!

I will be starting as network administrator for Manchester Boston Regional Airport next week. I’m sad to be leaving friends at work, but I’m extremely psyched for the job. I’m a programmer and CS guy to the core, but there is a huge piece of me that misses network administration and working with a team managing infrastructure, and an airport seems like such an awesome environment to do it in. Plus, programming all day, sometimes you can get a little burnt out by the end of the day and not want to look at code at all. This has been a bummer in the past, because there are a lot of times when I want to work on private projects or blog related stuff, but have just been too pooped. Hopefully this will help that a bit. Trying to find the perfect balance.

PSX64

Lastly – I had opened up the Synthetic Dreams store to sell a small batch of PSX64s left over from conventions, and they sold out before I got a chance to advertise them. I will be putting in an order with the fab house on Wednesday, and soldering them up as soon as I get them. Look for the store to reopen with stock in the next 4 weeks. I apologize for the long wait, unfortunately it’s tough to turn out the boards as fast as I’d like to with full-time work and the time it takes to make the boards. But they are indeed coming!
