Sun's having another round of layoffs today, and I'm one of them.
I fully realize that people are RIF-ed to reduce the headcount (plus associated expenses) and it's no reflection on how good or bad you've done your job. Even so, it still hits you hard.
I've been at Sun over 21 years. During that period, there have been some great times. I've worked on several exciting projects with lots of very clever people and made some good friends. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all those people who have mentored me and helped me with my career while I've been here.
As you can imagine this was all a bit of a surprise. I've no idea what the future holds for me at the moment. I know I'm going to be looking for a new job and hoping that I'll be able to stay in the Bay Area with our family and friends.
Thanks to all the supporters of this blog over the last four years. I've really enjoyed doing it. If you read it, I hope you found something interesting.
If anybody thinks they might be interested in employing me, I've put my resume online. My email address is near the top.
