When you work in high tech, sometimes it’s even harder than usual to admit you are an idiot, technically. I’ve been so excited to get this blog going. I’ve had articles that I wanted to write and things I wanted to say. But I couldn’t get into my own blog.
Because. I’m. An. Idiot.
Just so you know, user names in WordPress are case-sensitive. I turned in my old work computer with the user name saved and on my new computer, I couldn’t log in. This ends the self-embarrasment section of the blog today.
This isn’t a personal blog, so I am loathe to bore you with stories from my personal life. That being said (you know what is coming next) I wanted to tell you all about a sea-change in my life. I’ve been traveling for the last 2.5 years on business for my company as a trainer for our software product. I was lucky enough to be able to visit 41 states, 5 foreign countries, including 5 Canadian provinces. I’ve helped customers and understood their english or a little of their french, spanish, or german on trips outside the US (eine alt bier, bitte.) I’ve flown countless thousand miles and stayed at innumerable hotels. This week, I started in a new role for the company that requires no travel. I’m testing our software internally now, and I’m very excited to be back at home. Hopefully I won’t wear out my welcome here.
I’ll get rolling again on the blog tonight, now that I have figured out how to post again. We’ll see you online soon!
