so it’s been a little more than a month since my last post.
I recently started my job with j2Global Communications. (in the middle of February that is). Actually, come to think of it, it was when I started my new job that I had stopped posting. I guess I don’t have much time to finding cool stuff on the net anymore, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t post an update on what’s happening with me.
Since I left APU, my life has been a little bit of a roller coaster, and starting my job at j2Global was a bit of lifestyle change, because of my work hours…. 6:00am to 2:00pm, Tuesday through Saturday. For 5 years before that, my schedule was from 8:00 to 5:00, and my commute went up from about 10 minutes to somewhere around 1 hour 15 minutes.
I thought that when I started with the new schedule, that I would get used to it eventually, but I guess once you’re a night owl, you’re always one. I can’t seem to get used to waking up at 4:30am every morning.
On the bright side, the job at j2Global was kinda fun. it’s a pretty kick back environment there, and I’m getting the opportunity to learn some stuff about telecom. Also, being in a 24/7/365 operations makes it for a different environment overall.. especially that we have colocations around the world, so we are always working in different time zones and what not.
On the techie side, I guess the only thing I can think of is that I upgraded my laptop RAM to a 2Gb, and man was that a nice upgrade. I can now use VMWare without bogging down the whole system, and I can still have outlook, and some other programs open at the same time outside of the VM.
i know I’ve done a bunch of other stuff, but I think I’ll post those in another post.
until then, Cheers!
