New Job at the EFF

Almost as soon as I moved to San Francisco, I started volunteering with the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). I was mostly folding t-shirts and stuffing envelopes after getting off of work from my night-shift job. The EFF is a civil liberties organization that concentrates on the digital world. Think the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), […]

What I’ve Been Up To

I’ve been neglecting this blog a bit lately. I’ve basically been busy as hell lately, and I suppose the blog has taken a back seat. So this post will be a rambling one bordering on stream of consciousness. So grab a cup of your favorite hot, cold or lukewarm beverage, get someone to rub your […]

Late Wakeup

The Tenderloin: The only place where I can wake up at 8:50am and still get to work at a decent time, showered and fed.

Closing Tickets

I am closing tickets like a &%^^$#*&#$ today. w00t.

God Damn

It’s only Tuesday. It’s going to be a long week…Maybe it is just my speech that I have tonight for class that is making it seem long. Or maybe it is the remarkable speech that I saw on Sunday night. More later. I’ve had a lot of stuff that needs to be written down, and […]

Copper Thieves Ruined My Saturday Morning

Friday was a good day, overall. I got to come into work late because I had to stay a couple hours late. Some super-easy after-hours network maintenance needed to be done. I got home at around 7:30 or 8 and chowed down on a store-bought rice, cheese, and bean burrito. Then my new buddy Alfonso […]

Learning Some New Tech

At work, we have been messing with iSCSI and VMWare server. When you combine the two…things get really interesting. Basically, using Openfiler, we connected a behemoth of a server with loads of hard drives to the network in the basement, and connected a machine running VMWare server to the network on the second floor. We […]

Another Work Update

I am really liking my new job, for a few reasons: 1) I have a lot of responsibility. If I do something wrong, a lot of people aren’t going to be able to get their work done. 2) Unlike system administration and technical support, I don’t spend most of my time fixing problems. I spend […]

Work Update at One Week

I put in a fourteen-hour day yesterday. It didn’t seem like a fourteen hour day at all. From 10am until 6pm I was mostly doing research and the such and getting my cube in order. I also got a working badge to access the building. I have a working sfchronicle email address. I like feeling […]

jot a gob

Today I officially got a job with I.S. Logistics, a small company that does work for large companies. I will be working at the San Francisco Chronicle as a network engineer. So very happy. This is the job I studied for.
