A short lull

Well, if you follow my blog at all you’ve probably noticed a bit of a lull in posting and, while I don’t spend a whole lot of time talking about myself here I figured I’d take a moment to share why things have been slow lately.

The truth is things haven’t been slow lately. Blogging has been slow, but not other things in my life. Last week was my last week working as a DBA at Plymouth State University. It’s been fun there, but next Monday I start my new gig working for SunGard Higher Education as a Senior Technical Consultant-Oracle Remote Database Administrator.

In addition to being a higher level position with more potential for growth this position also gives me the opportunity to telecommute from my home in Concord, NH! Expect to hear more about telecommuting and adjusting to the change soon, but suffice it to say I’m fairly excited to go from a 45 minute commute to a 45 second commute.

So after wrapping up my first book I took this week off to get back on track with my second book, a goal which was going well up until an incident happened yesterday with a glass of water and my only Mac keyboard. For the record, don’t try to blow-dry your keyboard.

So I’m back on line with a brand new keyboard and busy as hell writing and getting my home office set up. If you’ll bear with me just a bit longer I’ve got some great articles coming including a hands-on review of the USB Missile Launcher (yes I have one and I’m not afraid to use it.)


One thought on “A short lull”

  1. Hi Jon,

    I see that you started worked for Sungard back in 2006. Are you still working for them. I am considering a position with them and was curious what your honest opinion was of the company?
