Interesting times, it's been a little more then a year since I was laid off when DevelopOnline went bankrupt. Since then I've been contracting in the embedded space. Some Linux, some 8 bit CPU stuff.

The 8 bit stuff has been with the Rabbit Semiconductor 3000 Rabbit core processor. It's a Z80 on steroids. six serial ports, one Ethernet port, lots of parallel I/O, 512K RAM and 512K Flash onboard. Fun little system. Even has an MMU onboard. But since it's only an 8 bit system no Linux for it. Still lots of fun.

It is always interesting to see where life leads you. In this case back to my roots from the 1980's.

Well the word is out, my current company DevelopOnline.com, is critically short of cash and while there are VC's looking at funding the company none are moving fast, or for that matter slowly. Ice moves faster.

I am indeed looking for a new position, need to pay bills, buy food, etc. and DOL has suspended executive pay for the duration. On top of that there was virtually no notice of the pay suspension, just oh by the by no more pay, but please keep working! They will, if the company gets funded make up the back pay but with with the current economy that could be a LONG time.

If anyone has any leads for a senior executive acustomed to running a large team and who also codes in "C" and is a fully qualified sysadmin please contact me at davidm at them dot com.


My resume is up at them dot com /~davidm/

Wow, a bad morning to say the least. I have friends and family in NYC, some of them work down near or in the World Trade Center.

I hope they are all ok, have not been able to reach any of them.

I don't know what to say. People, lots of people have died, WHY?
