Moving Up?

A little anyway...I'm in my first hard-walled office of my career. It trailed my promotion by several years, but it's still welcome. Kind of getting used to the new digs, and that it serves to remove me somewhat more from the organic discussions among my team. I'm getting more exercise now, so that's a plus.

I've been working around vacations (others and my own), so things have been a little out of whack for the past month or two. School is about to start again, and we begin the implementation phase of our Netware-to-Linux server replacement & migration project tomorrow.

We've also been working tirelessly to finalize the deal for our wide area networking and voice services contracts. The kick-off for the three-year project (contract) was two weeks ago, and we're ready to place orders. Our HQ bandwidth will jump from 6Mbps to a full DS-3 (45Mbps), and each of our sites will at least double their current bandwidth as well, as we move to Sprint's MPLS network. Oh, and we save money doing it.

The next couple of months promise to be fairly hectic, but hopefully at the end of it all, we'll see a much more stable, much faster, and hopefully MUCH lower-maintenance environment.
