And May is almost over

The month is almost over, and again, this site is quite. Sorry about that.

Last week, I was in Austin, TX for OSCON 2016. The show was fun, and it was the first time in over 5 years that I was just an attendee instead of a presenter or booth worker. While OSCON seems to be targeted more for developers and the DevOps scene, there were a few things I could use in my current Ops role.

Speaking of current Ops Role, I have transitioned to a new group at $EMPLOYER. I am now in the HPC (High Performance Computing) group, still as a Senior Linux Administrator. While most of the job is the same, the HPC group uses a global file system, and I have never played with one of those, it is learning time for me! The group has had some transitions in the last 12 months, so there is a lot of digging in to find out what is where, what is working, and what is not. The users are doing good work with the systems, so it is more of how can we manage the system better and faster, and react to changes better/faster.

On the photos side, I have not gotten back into the swing of things, and I need to set a goal, and go for it...and stop making excuses. :)

The motorcycle is down, and I guess I have not found the time to work on it. I think I know the issue, and it requires a little work. With Ride To Work Day in less than a month, I should get busy and get the bike back up and working.

And in the geeky side, I think I am going to switch over to using MarkDown like all the cool kids, as it does seem easier to use than RST...
