Well.. it’s like this.
I’ve been saying for well over a decade that I’d keep working at Virginia Tech until upper management pissed me off enough to make me leave.
So anyhow.. some things happened, some other things happened, I looked at the political situation, looked at the fact that I’ve reached a point where my projected pension will not get significantly better anytime soon.
And I decided the best solution for all concerned was to take a not-really-early retirement from Virginia Tech and pursue other opportunities.
Moneywise, I can retire. Busy-wise, I’m nowhere near ready for that. I’m also not really in a mood to leave Blacksburg.
So if anybody knows of companies that are willing to hire a telecommuting Linux geek for sysadmin, kernel hacking, or security, let me know… 🙂
