New position... Systems Technologist.

What does mean "Systems Technologist" ? I did not find a proper translation in French or Spanish.

Anyway it sounds cool. I am very happy to be back as a System Administrator and my new manager@SUN seems to be really good.

I will visit some of the people of my team in Broomfield (CO) very soon.
