Is there anybody out there? It sure has been a long time.
Those could be song lyrics. Those may be song lyrics. Who knows? I don’t. It’s been so long since I paid any attention to my own website, I’m surprised it’s still here on the ‘Interwebs”… Ok, It has been a long time, for sure. My last posts came right when I started a new job working for ‘The man”. I left the free-for-all, stress-less life of a self employed Computer consultant to dive back into the ‘stress-free’ life of “Working for da Man”. HA!
What have I been doing you ask? Well, they call me
Honeybadger cause I don’t give-a er… I mean, I am a Senior Network Engineer for Web Systems. Honeybadger is easier to say. Basically I support, maintain, improve the infrastructure currently service roughly 300+ websites. And, whatever else they tell me to do. I know you don’t care, I’m just trying to explain why I’ve left this site idle for so long. I tried to keep things going, I really did. I tried to post daily pictures… but I failed. Oh, I’ve taken plenty of pictures. But, most just got pushed up to my Flickr account. You’re welcome to go there and take a look.
OK… So, now what’s happening you ask? Well, I am starting a new! Starting back on the site! Over the past few years I’ve had many ideas for posts with no time to do them. I’ve started several but, they just sit unfinished in my drafts box. So, its time to get things going again. I wont promise daily posts. Nope, no way that will happen! That would be suicide. As it is now, I’m busier now than ever. Still playing with the Symphony of the Mountains, The Oak Ridge Symphony, the Knoxville Brass Worx Company and some with the Knoxville Symphony… those coupled with my “job” turn my mental faculties into mush.
My plan for posts remain the same: Funnies, pictures, posts about technology, musical events in the area, self promoting back patting, and of course all the Networky-Servery-Internety type stuffy things I do on a daily basis. Maybe even an amusing story or two about my struggles with programmers and their secret kin, the “security guys”. Note: you should always refer to the “security guys” by making the air quotes. They love it.
So, sit back, relax get a blanket and a cup of Hot Cocoa. It’s gonna be interesting.
