Update n' Stuff
The cold (or whatever it was – has anyone read “The Stand”?) has definitely moved into a chest infection. But that’s where it fell into my cunning trap – having suffered at least 2 chest infections a year for quite some time I am not beaten by it’s measly effects. I’m back and stronger than ever. With a cough.
Well, what can we expect to see? You may, by now, have spotted a change to the smiley theme – these are called Santa Smilies and come from Jason Sutherland. Thanks Jason, you and I don’t know each other, but I like the smilies. Come the New Year I may even post more than once a month. Anything is possible. Naturally, towards the end of the year I will do a round up of 2006, just to get it in perspective.
I will be back from annual leave in January and should be starting my new job. “What new job?”, I hear you say. And we will all now pause while you say it. Thank you. Currently, my role is Operations Manager (not that exact job title, but that’s the role), with resourcing and people management in it. From January, I will be a Service Delivery Manager. Which means that I have (dun dun dunnnnnn) financial responsibility and I also have to keep the service going – which means lots of meetings and hassling the operations managers. So that’ll be fun!
As of the end of the year, I will be among the last of my group of old friends still unmarried. Which is fine by me.
I had an idea for either a short(-ish) story or a set of short stories that are all interconnected and follow on. Assuming I gather the necessary inspiration, I’ll start working on that.
And, of course, I’ll still be a LinuxQuestions.org moderator and editor and I’ll also continue to contribute to the Infrequently Asked Questions column for Linuxworld.com. Hah, you didn’t realise that I am now a freelance journalist as well, did you?
So that’s all for now folks, riveting stuff I know.
Oh yeah. Household bleach kills 99% of all known germs. And that’s supposed to make us feel safe is it? Ever since I were a lad, they’ve killed 99% of germs, so what’s up with that final 1%? Are they unimportant or are they a breed of super germ; the likes of which could wipe all human life off the face off the Earth? I thin someone should develop a bleach to deal with that final 1% – they could make millions.
