Yesterday was my last day as a full-time employee writing firmware. It’s time to hang it up. My trade has turned into trudgery. My skills are rusty. My tolerance for the Dilbert World has been exhausted. Doing firmware for a living hasn’t been fun for a while. For sure I enjoy the occasional victories, moments of insight and inspiration, but these seem to be the exception rather than the norm. Working conditions have become a joke. I will not work in a windowless room, spending my days fixing other people’s bugs. Enough of that. It’s time to change the pace, pursue other pleasures and opportunities.
New content on this site: A page of photos of my earliest hikes in the White Mountains, with Bob Bailey, Bob Baker, Dan Coleman, Gordon Ledgard et. al. Also, a page devoted to nieces, nephews, and their kids. I’m enjoying the time working on the blog, recalling the places and events. I may be the only one looking at these images, but what the heck.
