Rants and Raves and Gratuitious Advertising.

Lousy, lousy, lousy... I was supposed to be in Batangas last week. Aside from the fact that it was my hometowns fiesta, some former officemates were also headed that way. I was going to hook up with them at the beach... and I was planning to show them around.

Unfortunately, all the best laid plans of mice and men oft do go astray, as the saying goes. And I couldn't leave work. Damn. Damn. Damn.

I wonder if they're going to shoot me on sight if I try to visit them?

Well, doesn't matter, too late now. I do have to go see them soon. I still have unfinished business to attend to - approximately 1500 in debt to pay back - and some gifts to give to the best people I've ever worked with in the 10 years that I've been working already.

Off tangent to the above rants, FreeBSD is teh roxorz!!!!111 I haven't had this much fun since I started with Slackware years ago. I'm actually proposing having these two deployed at our office for our servers.

And on a related note, because of the amount of reading that these two OS's demand of their user, I'm going cross eyed, and slowly going blind.

It makes for a great sleep deprivation experiment though. =Þ

I'll try to put up a more coherent post once I can actually manage to get some sleep back into my timetable.

Oh, and the Software Freedom Philippines site is already up, and SFD is just around the corner. Come on over and visit the site, it's under constant renovation though, so our apologies if something is broken.


Another Late Update

Well... better than nothing, I always say.

Anyway, I finally got out of the call center bit. I got a call from someone I knew who offered me a position that I just couldn't resist. So, my title is no longer CSR, it is now SysAd... !!!

Anyway... I traded in one lifestyle where I had no time, for another where the day doesn't have enough time for things to do... learning, relearning and prelearning as well as applying what I know to what has to be done.

Best part of all? It's an open source shop!

Ahh... all work and no play makes me a dull boy. But if my work is play, then I can't be dull now, can I? =P

I am now working with whats closest to my heart (next to my son anyway)... and work is never work if you're enjoying it. And work now entails my diddling around all the morbid details and innards of all of linux for the servers, and for me, FreeBSD (which I'm recommending for some of the servers anyway).

Sorry PV,, Slackware will always have a place with me... but FreeBSD is where I really go home to. Now, if I can get a spare drive, I can put a second home inside my box for both!
