Well… I didn’t get a chance to post earlier, but as of last Tuesday I started working for Novell as part of the Novell Virtualization Team. I’m really excited because the position is part of the QA department testing XEN. There is tons of information to learn though and almost a bit overwhelming, but none the less its going to be a lot of fun. I’ve finally been able to install and run a virtualized OS. My first was SLES 9 just a couple days ago. We are using an updated SLES 10 and seems to be working really well so far. I even installed a couple windows versions. As I’m still learning, I’ve only install and updated the guest OSes. Hopefully in the not too distant future I’ll be able to start doing some cool things with the guests. Some of the servers that we are testing on are really cool. I think all of them are at least 2 processors(AMD or Intel) that have 2-4 cores each and tons of memory. From just messing with it, I can’t wait to play with it some more.
I just had an interview with Novell yesterday. It was probably the most fun that I have had at an interview. They had me interview with three different people. The person that contacted me and first interview me is the manager over the virtualization platform team. The second is a developer and the third is in charge of QA. It was a lot of fun talking to them as each are really smart at what they do. In the end I think it would be a great oppurtunity to work there in the virtualization department. I’ll update my blog once I find out.
Well, I’ve found it hard to blog lately. My employment at Directpointe consumed a great deal of my time. I have since left and started the ever fun job searching. Because Directpointe keep me really busy for the last 6 and half months; I don’t know what to do with my time since I’m not used to having so much. Luckly I’m taking a Calculus course at Utah Valley State College (soon to be Utah Valley University). That has helped keep me busy for the last week. Calculus in 7 weeks.
I have completely redone my domain. I’m not on a newer server and my email is taken care of by the great google. My new server is running suse 10.2. Not that changing a server should really make a difference in whether I post more or not, but maybe I’ll post more 🙂 Beyond that there isn’t much of interest with the host/server changes. I mainly wanted to get a post up so that there was something to see.
