12 Dec 2000 orlando   » (Observer)

i've done it at last, well, almost. they are sending me the official offer today, should get it tomorrow, which means i will be able to hand in my notice before the end of the week. i feel a weight has been lifted off my sholders. nervous certainly, but i think i've made the right decision. the job is almost completely what i want, in other words loads of apache, solaris, load balancing, configuration, fault finding etc, not emailing and sitting in meetings all day.

and in other news, not very much. bought my brother a light box which was anything but after i'd lugged it all the way back to the office. i have yet to get it home. thinking now that i don't really need to as i'll have to bring it back again to send it over to him.

nick left yesterday. after having talked about it for over two months it's still odd to see an empty desk where there used to be a big pile of crap. great guy, shame he's gone so far away (half way round the planet far away). we never really had the time to get to know eachother properly, the problem of knowing someone thru work first i suppose. that and i have yet to beat him at yak-paddle (don't ask). i felt honoured to inherit his starwars lego, though i have yet to retrieve the speeder bike pilot from under his desk draws.

must go home. she must be wonrdering what the hell i'm doing here at 7pm.
