Regular readers will have noticed the blog has had an unusually taciturn nature over the last few weeks. This has been because life and career changes are in progress and I wasn't quite ready to go fully public until the paperwork was out of the way.
The headline is that I'm moving down to Cambridge to work for MIPS as a Linux kernel hacker. I start at the end of January after a hectic Christmas of house hunting and a Skiing holiday. It's a fantastic opportunity for a full time open source coding job and I'm quite looking forward to it.
The main reason for the move however is that it's going to be a lot easier for Fliss and I to maintain both our careers while seeing each other every day. I have indeed got it bad (in a good way) :-). It's going to be a wrench moving away from Manchester which has been my home for the last 16 years but I'm hoping not to be too much of a stranger.
The next few months are going to be quite hectic. Anyone want to buy a house?
