Hmmm. New Laptop. :-)

My new PC, a Dell Inspiron 6400 was delivered today. I've whacked Fedora Core 5 on it (getting rid of the evil OS completely), and over the next few days I'll fix the remaining issues:
  1. Sound - none
  2. Graphics - looks shit in so-called 1280x800
  3. Wireless Firmware

Swing vs. Web 2.0

Evan Summers's Blog: Swing trumps Ajax and Web 2.0

Interesting. But unfortunately, dream on.

First week in my new job

My first week has been damned good. The people in my department and immediate team are really nice. I think that this is always my biggest fear when I change job - will the people be nice? I'm glad to say that they are, and this includes all the managers with whom I've had contact.

Similarly, the knowledge and talent of everyone I've come across has been impressive. These are seriously clever people. Having to understand real IT issues as well all the ins and outs of the complexities of 3G networks means that everyone there is top-notch.

I already have a career plan and know what is expected of me and how I'll be measured.

Plus we went out for Thai food on Friday which rocked! :-)
