I finally have a halfway-decent Jabber service
up and running at home, with working ICQ, MSN, and Yahoo! transports.
I'm already seeing a little instability with the Yahoo!
transport, so I'm probably going to need to split each one
off into it's own process, and once I'm done, supervise
the whole mess. After all that, I'll probably tackle getting
the AIM transport going; I
don't have high hopes for it, though.
"Would you like to be a developer?"
I was just asked this question, arising from a
meeting where a co-worker is trying to finagle some time
off, and is being greeted with the "but you're too critical
to the day-to-day development strategy" line of bullshit.
So, they jokingly asked if I'd like to step into his shoes
for a while so he can get a vacation. That's just what I
need; senior programming/engineering duties on top of
administration of a 50-system heterogenous multi-site
network. No thanks. ;-)Resume
It's going out in full force again, although
this time I'm a little more willing to relocate, as the
other half has indicated that she'd be willing to try a new
locale for a few years. So, anyone looking for a
senior-level UNIX architect, possibly looking to move into a
corporate or institutional training role, or even contract
programming for the right organization? If so, drop me a line.
