Spent August around Europe and started looking for a job at the start of this month. Last summer/fall I spent quite a bit of time job searching before getting something that wasn't all that interesting. Within the first month of this search, I have had two interviews for very interesting jobs, and the second interview has now landed me a job offer. The great news is that it's not another web application development project. I don't want to say anything more until I actually respond to (read: accept) the job offer. The end product is not related to Linux or Free Software, but some Free tools are used in the development process, and they are looking to move away from their current Sun/Solaris work environment to perhaps something Linux-based.

This relatively intense job search has caused me to neglect OCLUG a little too much. We still need to set up a speaker for the upcoming October meeting, and I need to get moving on a draft set of rules for the mailing lists, particularly a new, Linux-only (ie: on-topic) list.
