Redundancy
Those of you who follow goth_twiglet on Facebook will already have seen this alluded to, but as of the end of this month I'll be officially redundant. For the last five months I've been very quiet as I was working on the serverside of the Virgin Music Unlimited service, mostly trying to figure out the architecture scaling. This didn't include the deep packet inspection technology before anyone who's been on the end of one of my extended rants on the subject thinks I finally found an employer mad enough to fund that particular bit of research :)

Unfortunately it proved impossible for Virgin Media and certain of the Major Labels to come to a full agreement of how the service should be implemented and as a result there isn't enough money in the kitty to continue paying my salary. Well no one ever said I was a cheapdate lol Anyway if a fresh investor turns up before the end of the month my job will be saved and if not I'll just have to hope something interesting turns up soon. Either that or back to consultancy I guess.

In tangentally related news the .tel registry is now up and running so the time may be right for spikyblackcat and I to do something off the back of that. Given that we're among the select few who know how its underlying DNS conventions work we could probably earn a good living helping companies come to grips with it, although I'm not entirely sure I want to get sucked back into that world.

today I am mostly: bedtime!!!

Really sorry to hear that. All the best with moving on to pastures new.

Thanks hon :)

I've already had a few approaches from head hunters as my skills are apparently in demand right now, so hopefully something will come of that.

Will be keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Altho judging from most of the job markets people I know are in right now, maybe I shouldn't uncross them at all for, oooh, 18 months or so.

Working on the basis that I find job hunting difficult in the good times (too expensive, too much experience) it'll hopefully be easier in the bad times.

But I definitely won't discourage crossed fingers lol

Thats really shit and I can sympathise, hopefully something else will turn up for you soon.

Thanks hon. I'm doing my best to stay annoyingly upbeat about the whole affair :)

Ah yes, meant to say to you that I heard .tel is up and running. Maybe now is the time to take over the world?
feyeleanor From: feyeleanor Date: February 12th, 2009 12:42 pm (UTC) (permanent link)
Could be. There's very few people who understand how .tel works so I'm well placed but only time will tell whether it takes off.

It sounds like you're on top of things, if you had nothing to do I might be worried.
And I'll wish you an early happy birthday while I'm at it!
feyeleanor From: feyeleanor Date: February 12th, 2009 06:25 pm (UTC) (permanent link)
Except of course you're a day late ;p

But yes, I think I'm on top of things (famous last words). The last couple of days I've been busy talking with recruiters and interviews are being scheduled on a few opportunities so hopefully I'll get something lined up to start next month.

If not, well it's back to my amazing juggling skills I guess.

Ack, worst lucky. Hope it doesn't all fall to pieces too badly. Ooo, must reply to you on OKC - sorry!
