A Long Holiday

So I have been on holiday since the week before Christmas, and my blog has been sorely neglected. Unfortunately that is what happens when I have lots of Stargate to watch as well as Ghost In The Shell (Standalone Complex). I have also been watching too many DVD’s (some were presents, others bought, and one or two borrowed) and reading a couple of books. It has been a really nice way to spend a few weeks.

I have been tempted to write about the many DVD’s watched or the books read, but probably had better not or else I will not get the chance to sleep before I go back to work tomorrow.

I am (in theory anyway) moving departments in work tomorrow. I am leaving the Message Broker Performance Team (part of Development), after an exciting six months there, to move to the Level 3 Service team (highest level of support for Message Broker). It will be a bit of a challenge working in service as the buck stops there, the problem must be fixed. I guess that is one of the reasons that companies choose IBM – the support for products is first class, none of the excuses you get from smaller companies who refuse to fix a problem. It should also be very exciting to work there, and the customer contact will be interesting too. Hopefully more about that later in the week.

It has been a long haul to catch up on all the blogs I have missed. Speaking of which, anyone know any really good feed readers for linux? I currently use bloglines, which is great as I can then read my feeds from my xda (phone+pda) anywhere, but having something that tracks comments on the feeds would be nice. I miss not being able to see the followups (I used to use a windows program for reading feeds which did this, but am moving to Linux wherever possible, so windows only is no good to me…) The other alternative I suppose is to write my own web based feed reader. It can’t be that hard really…

I took a few photos while on holiday, some are already up in the gallery but I will try to go through the others soon and get them all sorted out and online soon!

    Didn’t know you were moving teams. Good luck with that. I’ll have to move you from one part of my Sametime list to the other 😉
    Glad you had a nice holiday.
    I *will* try out that Eclipse-related code you pointed me at before Christmas, at some point – been really busy.
