“Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.” (Douglas Adams)
The only thing constant in life is change. And as such bamed and family are on the cusp of a most significant change. Seven years ago this month I began a new adventure as the ‘IT guy’ for College Heights Christian Church in Joplin, MO. “I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.” (Douglas Adams) Later this month we will be leaving Missouri and heading South to the great state of Texas.
“Let the past hold on to itself and let the present move forward into the future.” (Douglas Adams)
At the end of this month I will be beginning a new adventure as a Linux sysadmin for HostGator.com in Houston. Anyone who knows me at all will know that I have always been a rather large fan of Linux and have made it the focus of not a few blog posts through the years. As such, I am looking forward to spending my days at a command line exercising my CLI-fu. I’m also rather excited about moving to the great town of Houston where things such as Linux Users Groups, 2600 meetings, and hacker spaces are more than something you read about on the internets.
“The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.” (Douglas Adams)
We should be all moved and begin settling in by Christmas. To all those we’re leaving behind, know that you will be missed, that you are welcome to stop by whenever you’re in the area, and that if you have any Linux experience HostGator is still hiring! So… until we meet again, “So long, and thanks for all the fish!” (Douglas Adams)
