Even though you know it's coming it's never something you really want to happen...

Well, today I was let go after being at Platform Computing working on our Open Source software for almost 5 years. It's been one of those up and downer days. I read the FLOSS blog postings from all the different communities and see people being let go and now I'm one of them :-(

The writing was on the wall though for months, it's not like I didn't know this would happen. I just wanted to deny that It could happen, but it has happened.

So, for now. I will not be dedicating much time to KDE while I try to find new work elsewhere. I don't look at this as a sad day, but as a new beginning for me...

If anyone wants to hire a pretty smart Linux guy, please contact me :)



i've been there.
first time's the worst,
'specially when u've worked since u were 8yrs old, Har!
shawn, it's true that's its a new beginning for you.
we can't fill a brimming cup..

Yes, I'm hopeful things will turn around soon on this front. But the economy is really hurting. This is just one of those moments life throws at you that you deal with.
