I usually try to keep everything here extremely technical but here is a short update about me in general. As some of you may know I have been planning a move for a few weeks now. I didn’t really know quite where I was going, only that I was in for change. I don’t really intend to settle down anywhere but instead to move from place to place.
As of 8am on Saturday my leaving was complete. I arrived here in Montreal where I will be staying as a visitor for a few months, hopefully I can become conversational in French again before I leave. I arrived with everything that I owned contained in 2 suitcases with a total weight of 110 lbs (I need to get rid of a few more things to get myself below the airline weight limit). I have to say that the getting rid of all of your possessions is extremely liberating and I am looking forward to the next period of my life without a focus on material possessions.
On the work front I hope to be picking up a local contract for 3-6 months. It was very hard to get this setup beforehand with everyone being on vacation but hopefully it will come together fairly easily. If you are in the US and are looking for someone I do have a few weeks of availability until I take something or may not take something if it goes longer. If interested drop me an email.
Everything here in Montreal is quite different but some things are pretty easy to pick up. Go
Nucks Habs Go! I already have a good number of funny greg-was-speaking-french-and … stories to share at the next conference (alt.net seattle I am thinking though its a much longer trip from here!).
I hope to be spending more time focused on writing while I am here so expect some more content!
