Since the Clark for President campaign disbanded, I’ve been looking in various places for the type of work that I would enjoy. I think I’ve found it in Pennsylvania.
While Lancaster County, PA is a long ways, both culturally and geographically, from New Orleans, we’ve already found a house (which we’ll be moving into this Friday, if all goes well) and begun to acquaint ourselves with the area.
My determination to find work that involves Perl by watching the Perl Jobs mailing list paid off huge dividends. I’ll be able to program in Perl and continue to do some interesting Linux System Administration work. Additionally, since the company is small, I’ll be the primary (only, for now) technical person, so I’ll be able to have the influence on decision-making that I wanted in my previous position, but lacked because the company was phasing out their UNIX-based operations.
