Happy New Year

It’s another year. I’m not going to make any predictions because I don’t see the point. But here’s what’s happening with me over the next year.

First is I’ll hopefully be getting into VoIP at work, especially in the call centre area. I’m looking forward to this, and depending on which way we go, I may have a big part to play.

I’m also looking forward to finishing my book, and seeing on the shelves. It’ll be a relief to have that over with.

My CCNP elapses in a couple of weeks, and there’s no way I’d be ready for the recert. The core stuff I’m comfortable with, but it’s all the little things that I’d miss. So I’ll probably have to redo it, which is 5 exams. And I’d like to get my Voice Support qualification, which is another 3, for a total of 8. Hopefully, though, I’ll be able to put it all up on my web site so ofther people can use the notes.

I look forward to seeing what’s new in Linux, especially the Fedora project. I just upgraded my workstation to FC3, and I’d be lying if I said I was happy. First, my SCSI card wasn’t supported, and then, I’m having a popular problem with choppy sound. Both seem to be problems in the 2.6 kernel, and I hope they get fixed soon. I’d like to get more into SELinux.

Once the book is done, I’d also like to get back into playing with microcontrollers. I was working on a couple of projects, including a smart battery charger and a prox card reader, and I’m looking forward to picking those up again.

And, of course, I have a wonderful family that I’d like to spend a lot of time with. I adore my two boys and my wife, and they make each day something to look forward to.

Happy New Year, everyone!
