New Job,

A few weeks ago I accepted a new job role, and I can’t wait to get started. I think I have mentioned before on this blog that I origianl trained as a scientist and for a time worked in a science lab before moving on to networks.

Well I am now going back in to the lab, but this time to help grow and develop there network through a large restructuring project, that will see the building of several world leading laboratory buildings and a through overhaul of the entire site. And the best part about it is I will have a major role in all of it. 🙂 With lots of hands on across lots of different network technologies, and while some are things I have experience with there are a few new ones as well to get my teeth in to 🙂

So after a fairly mundane year as far as networking has gone, I think getting back in to it will really give me the motivation to get back  studying and learning it all. Last year has not been standing still by any means, but has been a little slow in terms of networking.

To head up the network on one of the world leading laboratories for study of animal diseases is really a dream job for me, combining both of my hobbies in to one. All the hard work of the last 5 or so years really playing off..

Once I have started the role and settled in I will be posting a few more details about the position and where I can what things I am getting up to.

New Job,

Well the reason I haven’t been posting as much, and have moved the blog to an on-line host. Is that in a few weeks I will be starting a new role working for Dimension Data.

Seems like the hard work over the last few years is paying off now, and really excited to be moving to such a well respected company in the networking field. Hopefully with a bit of hard work I will be achieving many things over the coming years. I think this will be a great opportunity, and goes to show that working hard, and taking your time to look for the right openings does pay back in the end.

So my plans for the next moth or two go some thing like this..

Move house, buy new car, carry on raising the devil child (I mean my gorgeous daughter), start the new job, and carry on studying for my CCNP. I have decided that until I am settled in the new house and new job I am not going to think about taking the exams. But hopefully by Christmas or early next year, I will be ready to take both the switch and route exam close together, with trouble shoot following shortly after.

So if posts seems slow for the next month or two that’s the reasons. I have a list of posts I want to cover, including about 3 or 4 more on EIGRP before moving on.

Hopefully I will get a few more completed over the weekend.
