It’s fast becoming that loverly part of the year, around my birthday, when the corn is getting long in the fields and humid thunderstorms threaten in the late afternoon. It is a time when some people take their summer holidays [the one who don’t mind paying extortionate prices], and the daily commute to work becomes a pleasure as the schools are off. Just the right time to take stock and do a catch-up post….
What a busy couple of months it has been…..hence the lack of blog post or facebook/twitter updates. And I have a rule which ensures that if I am busy, I tend to get on with being busy and forgo the written commentary…..a bit like if I’m at a gig, I would rather see the band with my own eyes, rather that through the view-finder of a camera phone. Hence the near terminal case of Blog Neglect.
So what have I been doing? Well there was InfoSec and CPX (two security conferences), various types of product training sessions, a plethora of Team Fortress 2 updates and competitive tournament games to play, a 90 minute technical security update presentation to give, loads of client meetings, helping to organise a wide scale asset audit for a leading national hotel chain, technical primer writing, a summer holiday at Butlins (Skegness) and numerous music gigs/festivals to attend.
And what is yet to come? Well, probably lots more same, but hopefully at less of a frantic pace. I’m just not sure how much blogging will be done…but I will make a concerted effort to update more often. [That sounds like so many New Year’s resolutions to “keep up with a journal/diary”, that I have broken over the years!]. In the meantime I hope to retrospectively post some of the post that have been written over the last couple of months, but never published….✴️ Also on Micro.blog
