So, I got a new hard disk to work tonight, so I installed Fedora Core 2 on it. Whoa! What happened to Galeon? Where’s XMMS? Why does Nautilus look like Windows 3.11? And where’s my email?
All in all, I pretty much like it. I must confess that I didn’t pay much attention to general development for the past half a year, due to lack of time, and I’m hoping to get back into it now that I’m back from New York.
Did I mention that I dearly miss Manhattan? …
Sucks to do it like this, but I’ll have to.
So I’ve been paid to go to New York, mostly. And I’ll probably be paid for to go back to New york and do my graduate studies there next year (September 2005). However, there’s an obvious 1-year-gap there. I’d like to work in this period. And given that I’ll waste most of my life in pharmacology and psychiatry, I’d like to devote this part of my life specifically to free software engineering.
So go ahead, dear GNOME-loving companies. Hire me, please. I can work for only one year and I have little computing science education (although I have a bachelors and am one month off of getting my masters). On the other hand, I have strong free software devotion and commitment, can work 24/7 for months in a row (and have done so in the past), I have lots of experience in free software development and multimedia (both kernel and desktop) and need no introductory course of two months before I start getting useful.
So that’s said now. Let’s hope I get a job soon. Houses are expensive… Love y’all. :).
