So far, so good

I’ve completed my first full week at the new job, and I’m loving every minute of it. No, really. I can’t remember. The last time I was looking forward to work each day. I’m sure that this feeling will wear off after a while, but while it lasts I plan to wallow in it.

One of the things I’m enjoying is getting up to speed on the application and the industry. Trading is very different from pensions and health and welfare, with a completely new set of concerns. Five minutes outage is an eternity while the market is open, but there is no expectation at all that the application be available 24 x 7 … No pages in the middle of the night, in other words, or frantic calls on weekends.

I may talk some more about the tech in this blog, I haven’t quite decided yet.

Wilkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome!

To the all-new, all faboo, personal blog of Joshua Macy.  The old blog is dead, at a site and domain I no longer own, so let the good times roll on here!

Most of this blog will be devoted to personal stuff, and a lot of that is going to be notes to myself (and maybe others) on tech that I’m working with. ┬áMost of the other irons I’ve got in the fire, with RPGs and whatnot, already have homes elsewhere, but with the demise of the old site I no longer have anywhere to publish stuff that isn’t related to any specific project.
