I got a promotion, I'm now a Technical Architect/Development Manager for Infrastructure, which alas doesn't come with the kind of salary you might expect from a grand title. However, it does sound better than just Software Engineer. This means I have to people manage again, though thankfully my team are a pretty good bunch. They were actually quite relived it was me who got the job
Finally finished the 1st phase of my Labyrinth project, which is running the Birmingham for 2006 Bid site. As yet I'm awaiting the other committee members to have a play and attempt to break it. In the meantime, I've ported DanDan's website and I'm now porting the Birmingham.pm website. There are two other websites I aim to have ready during the summer too. If all goes well, a set of servers will be up and ready during August, which will then host my little empire.
I've started to acquire a number of parts for my various broken machines, HDD donated from friends and a BX motherboard bought on eBay. I now have another donation of a gateway that I need to set up and finally get my LAN up and running. The Wireless router is being a pain, as I still can't get it to talking to anything. The manual implies I'm supposed to have a Win32 laptop to get it to work, which just sounds daft. I'll perserve though.
There is other news on the horizon, but I shall save that for another time.
