Changes

So it ends. I've been at Sun since March of 1989 (with a couple of years off for good behavior), and for the last 10 years I've worked on internal processes, tools and problem solving related to software development, systems architecture and product delivery. Much of my focus has been on OpenSolaris, in the Architecture community as well as serving on the OGB. Today, I was informed that my position has been eliminated, and I was being laid off.

I intend to remain active in the OpenSolaris community, though I expect to start participating in other areas (Arduino is cool, JMRI is as well, and I want to help make both available in an OpenSolaris repository ASAP)

Since this may well be my last blog post here, the following links should help keep you in touch:

See you around,

Caboose hunting - in the beginning...

I've moved the "caboose hunting" blog to my personal web site since it has little to do with my job at Sun (and because it is an excuse to play around with blogging software :-)...

Please see Trains of Thought on my SP Coast web site for the continuing saga of WP668 - buying and restoring a 90 year old outside braced wooden bay window caboose!
