New Job, New Home

I’ve been a bit quiet lately on this blog, but that’s because I’ve been in interviews for a new job, apartment hunting, and preparing to move. I will soon be working at VMware. It seems to be a very cool job, and everybody I’ve met there were great.

I went apartment hunting the other day and found a really nice, comfortable area close to work. The prices were good too. For only a small amount more than some other apartments I looked at, I was able to get a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom. I figure I’ll make one bedroom into an office.

Mid-August, I’ll move and start my job. It’s going to be hard to leave my family (especially my little sister, who’s trying to grasp why her big brother is leaving her) and my friends, but it’s only a few hours away, so we’ll all see each other.

Galago updates soon. Just got to get some stuff working first.

Impending Galago release

Welp, I’ve been thinking about it, and with everything coming up in my near future (possible full-time job, and if not, school), and with the current state of Galago, it may be time to do an initial release. It’s Mostly Stable (TM), and the best way to get some bug reports in is if people use it. After I evaluate the possibility of getting some certain code working some time this next week, I’ll be making my decision regarding its release.

Unfortunately, the Evolution integration won’t be part of the first release (although the Evolution-Data-Server feed will be). I plan to build some custom packages of Evolution and E-D-S based on the unstable 1.5.x releases and my patches a bit after the initial Galago release. We’ll see how that goes.

I have some scary-neat ideas coming up for some of this technology.

Update: Happy birthday Todd!
