Work

They must trust me

Been logged on to the live public web server for a few days getting ready for an Apache upgrade, and hopefully my first app (in Flex with a ColdFusion backend, no less) will go live straight after that.

New work working well

New work is great - down the pub for lunch two days last week, and a total lack of stress.

Getting to the point of doing real work now, using Flex in anger for the first time. And it is very funky.
Not worth god-knows how many thousands, but apparently Flex 2 will be free (to compile) and the beta does full-blow CFC remoting for added 'wow'.

Finally saw a moving tram today too :-)

Good day, bad day

Bad day: my new glasses have developed a crack around where the frame joins the lens
Good day: accepted a job offer from elsewhere
Bad day: current employer is starting to fire people in an attempt to save cash

Well, that's an odd thing to find

Well, that's an odd thing to find sat on the table when you come into work - 3 crates of beer.
Apparently we're 4 years old last week, and they were too busy trying to rescue us from the yawning maw of bankruptcy to notice.

And no, still not rescued, still not got alternative employment, though I'm hopeful.

Argh ! (but really rar !)

No full time jobs for a year, and then I get two at once.

One is as a security consultant for a company in Knutsford - but doing a fair bit of on-site customer work.
The other is doing ColdFusion in Kendal, which would mean moving.

Pro's and con's for both, and just had the agency for the latter on the phone asking what package would make me ditch the former :-)
I told them paying for me to move, so we will see, but atm I don't know what to do.
