Oy, where to begin…

First of all, you may have noticed that the blog has been a little quiet this week. In fact, it’s been several days since there’s been a real post. Okay, there are several reasons for that.
Chief among those reasons is some personal family stuff that caused a bit of chaos around the house. It’s rather delicate, so I won’t get into it, other than to say, it’s a reminder that kids are like the ocean. You’re never sure what’s coming on the next wave and don’t turn your back on it, because the riptide can suck you under. But, that being said, the problem is being resolved, so, no worries.
The next thing is all the outsourcing rumours at work. I know, I know, I haven’t mentioned this before, but only because it hasn’t been out in the open. Now that it is, I feel okay with talking about it. There’s nothing solid yet, but today, HP is in talking to people about their job and how they do it. Sounds to me like they’re getting ready to make it happen, though the official word is that nothing is set in stone. Yet. Anyway, folks were talking about their “meeting with the Bobs” all day yesterday. Me, I’m just looking for the guy with the red Swingline. (Oh, wait, that’s me!)
So, the last thing is that I’m not going to be the last rat on the ship, for a change, and I’m out there looking. And, in fact, I have an interview with a “placement agency” today and, most likely, a job interview through them tomorrow. A Novell position with Linux. Less than 5 minutes from the house. That could be cool.

Well, I’ll keep y’all posted.
