today’s my last day at the current job. some thoughts on what i took from working here…
was able to gain some knowledge on using xen cli tools.
fussed around with multipath and how you can present luns from a dell san. this was a neat skill to pick up.
took in some experience on dealing with hardware vendors, navigating quotes and making sure that i was not being overcharged, or sold more equipment than i needed. this turned into a huge thing and i managed to recoup about $3k in overcharges for my employer.
learned how to install, administrate and maintain symantec’s netbackup. this was a big undertaking. no training what so ever, so it was just a matter of reading the documentation and getting some assistance from symatec’s team.
spent some more time around solaris, and i still don’t care for it.
i did way more documenting than i have in the past, which was already a lot. i guess the less day to day contact you have with other members of a team, the more you have to document things. so i did my best to document everything i did day to day.
i leave here without making big a mark as i hoped to. but i am trying to follow a new career path that i hope really changes my future. i am taking an opportunity that i couldn’t pass up.
more technical stuff to come…
enjoy this song from slapshot that kind of relates to my feelings:
