hmm... hello everyone... anyone still paying attention to what I write here? [lol]

Sadly I have little of interest to write, except a general apology/excuse for being largely nonexistant online for quite some time now.

I left my job at Fujitsu Services last week and started today at Barclays Capital - yup, both hardcore gaming and multimedia companies that you'll no doubt be familiar with.

I'm also moving house this month so I'm sure you can appreciate I've got a load of other things on my plate at the moment.

The plus side, I hope, is that my daily commute is down to about 55mins each way from the 90-105mins that I had at Fujitsu and this is likely to drop down towards 40-45mins once I move house. This basically means that I've gained an extra hour (or more) a day, which I hope can be put to good use once everything settles down - maybe, just maybe, I can actually finish some of my many side projects [rolleyes]

I'm still reading. Congrats on the new work place. Though I'm sure that by the time you finally read this you'll have been working there for a couple of weeks. [wink]

I'm one to talk, not many posts from me either. Cheers.

I'm still reading. You're one of 11 developer blogs on my RSS feed.

I'm always stunned by the incredibly exciting jobs you land these days. I mean, to land a job at..Barclays watchamacallit. You're on a streak there, man [grin]

Good luck with the job, the commute, and your side projects.

In other news, my commute is 12 minutes by bike, 5 by car. Hah, I'm made of pure win

So that means my blog is just so damned cool that you extended the top-10 to include me? It's like Spinal Tap all over again...

There's a time dilation field in London. You can't get between two interesting places in less than one hour usually. But that won't stop me hating you and your slacker commute [razz]

Barclay's eh? Where's that based?

You probably do business with us...
Based in Canary Wharf - the clinical centre of the (London) universe.

You're still in databases, right? We use a high-perf DB system from Kx systems (I think)... that's not you is it?!?!

Of course we are still listening - must say the tasklist command in your previous post was useful.
