So, first blog of 2007... bliadhna mhath ur, and all that.
It was a fairly quiet break for us this year, at least in terms of travelling and seeing family-- we did neither, apart from a one-night spa break up the road at the Johnstownhouse Marriot in Enfield. (The food there really is gorgeous.)
We were out and about around town a bit though... went to see Jason Byrne on December 23rd, and we took in Casino Royale, Flushed Away, Happy Feet and Deja Vu at the cinema (mostly for free-- thanks Curly!)
Work-wise, I'm trying out a Sun Ray 2 at home for the first time this week... the technology is certainly impressive, although it remains to be seen whether it'll oust my laptop as my working-at-home tool of choice. It would probably be more useful if I had one on my desk at work as well, to get the full benefit of session mobility-- maybe it's time to retire my old Ultra 10....
I am a Principal UX Engineer in the Systems Experience Design team, working at Oracle (via Sun Microsystems) since the turn of the century. I currently work on sysadmin user experience projects for Solaris. Formerly I worked on open source Solaris desktop projects such as GNOME, NWAM and IPS.
