Chasing the (Red) Dragon

So, as some of you already know, the time has come for me to leave the film industry. I’ve been working at MPC for over four years now, the single longest period of time that I’ve ever been in one job. My feet have been getting increasingly itchy over the last year or so and I’ve been keeping my eye out for interesting jobs. When a position opened for a “Grid Technology Specialist” at Cardiff (my alma mater) I jumped at the chance. Cardiff is a lovely city and I thorougly look forward to moving there. In case you are interested I shall be working for these guys.

Four years in post production/VFX have pretty much taught me all that I know about adminning big *nix systems. It’ll be interesting to try and apply all that knowledge in a more academic environment. I’m not sure how I’m going to adapt to the comparative lack of pressure. I keep thinking ’35 hour week’ and grinning.

The advert for my replacement is already up. Anyone interested in talking my place should apply PDQ as there have already been responses.

So long and thanks for all the fish.
