End of quarter.

Madness, disorganized.

That is all.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Ahhh… the joys of working for a company on NASDAQ.
    :)

    Just go grab some carbo snacks from the break area and feel the love.

    The *LAST* thing I need to do is spend more time in the breakroom.

    Although the catered lunches for the group are pleasant.

    Catered? Cool.

    I remember the beer socials. I also remember the “sometimes” lunches. You would get the RHCE class people in there and they would never eat ALL the food so you could pick over it.

    sounds like me before my diagnosis while still in school…

    I sometimes wonder how I survived….

    then I remember…barely, with lots of last minute cramming.

    Well, brought in. Catered is a bit of a misnomer. Today was Bear Rock Cafe platters. Yesterday was Playmakers wings. Dunno about tomorrow

    The RHCE leftovers still happen, sometimes. And the occational after-work beer groups, depending on the day & group.

    And the 6pm UT *grin*

    I seem to have fallen in with some of your old friends (Doc, et all), so I know who you are. I also ran into your friend Carrie at Harris Teeter once. I don’t believe we’ve officially met yet, though. I’m Becca.

    Did you work for Red Hat in the past?

    PS: We have excellent caterers these days. “Sometimes lunch” today was leftover Trinidadian food. It was incredible. It’s nice to work in GLS–one major perk is that I get to eat with the students if I want.

    I was at RedHat when I worked for a company that no longer exists as an overpaid whor^^H^H consultant for a short time… then I came back with the clown car full of them. I wasn’t in charge. I was just a cog.

    It’s up for debate that I or anyone in the clown car actually -did- anything there but I did work with folks from RedHat. ;-0

    My favorite day was introducing Greck (same ex-company) to help with some systems stuff at RedHat.

    “Hi guys, this is Greck. He hates your product and runs Debian. I’ll check back in a few minutes.”

    I’ve even dropped in periodically to interview for things over the past three RedHat locations.

  8. beccaj says:

    I heard you’re a pretty smart fellow. Red Hat would be lucky to hire you.

    Maybe one day…
