Given how much I plaster my email address across the blogosphere, I'm surprised I don't get more SPAM like this. We must have \*very\* good SPAM filters. I get about 10 a day in my email. That's about 3% of my daily email. Not bad.
This particular SPAM caught my eye given I've been in the role of GlassFish Group Product Manager for roughly 2 months. I'm currently looking at what seems to be an endless list of things to do and learn in this role. That doesn't leave much time for Solaris or Zones tinkering. Not much time for coding either. Not much time for lunch (seriously).
On the other hand, I'm picking up a whole new set of skills, which is great. Building a new set of relationships - inside and outside of Sun - while leveraging many of the relationships I already have. What came as second nature before is not second nature now. It takes much longer to do things as I have to navigate a whole new set of contacts and processes. The good news is that I've got one hell of a team to work with as I learn the ropes. Skilled. Motivated. Professional. Fun.
Let's just say I'm far from a dead end job. I'd say its more like a new beginning.
