A week of changes

I’m writing this to you on a brand new operating system – Linux Mint 15 instead of Windows. I no longer use Windows in my life, and have blown away Windows 8.1 on my PC, as well as Windows 7 on my laptop. Now everything is Linux. I love it.

I’ve been playing around with Linux over the past few months to a year, but always through a virtual operating system (VM) on my Windows PC. This past week I decided to change my life by changing my computer systems and forcing myself to learn something new – Linux Mint, a popular variant of Ubuntu. It’s also going to be nice to be able to stay connected with Hyperboria all the time, instead of just when I fire up a VM.

And at the same time I had my contract at work terminated, so I rejoined the ranks of the unemployed. I’m wondering what I’m to learn from that as well.

It came as a bit of a surprise, but now that I’m back home in Canberra, I’m quite looking forward to new opportunities. Losing one job isn’t the end of the world, not when there’s so many more jobs out there. There’ll be a lot of opportunities for more work in Sydney, and I’m sure the next one will be even better.

A friend of mine told me about a gaming company opening a new office in Sydney on the same day I lost my job. I’m going to try and get in touch with them and see if there’s any jobs they’ve got that I might be able to apply for. You never know if you never try. I think it could be fun working for a computer games company. (They’re responsible for Skyrim and Elder Scrolls….)

So with a change in computer operating systems and my working / living situation, I’m quite looking forward to seeing what else is coming just around the corner.
