Aw, Shit!

I got laid off today.

I rather expected it - we were actually overstaffed for what they wanted us to do. They were going more toward using the $parentcompany 's infrastructure, which is MicroSoft mostly. I do not excel at end user support.

I have three months severance, with COBRA, so I'm not too close to desperation yet.

So, I'm looking. Linux/Unix sysadmin, including VMWare and RedHat Enterprise Linux. I use Windows through XP, but I'd rather not support it. I have some basic, although dated, Cisco experience. I've tried very hard not to stagnate, so I am familiar with Ruby on Rails and various other admin technologies.

Also, I will be restarting my soap and candle making, maybe some other stuff. My creative itch needs to be scratched something fierce.

So, I'm bummed, and relieved, at the same time. I was there for over 4 years, which is forever in the IT field. I was past the point of burnout.

After a week or two of reset, I will be looking for a new and exciting job where I can once again make a difference. I'm a builder, and expander, not a helpdesk associate, and I know it. I want to build something, or take it from startup to world class.

let me know what sorts of things to send your way, and where to send them? If you want, I'd be happy to do a resume review and such too, though my resume style isn't US standard.
