Yes, that’s right, I have another job. All my friend’s and family can’t keep up with where I work, but hopefully I’ll be at this company for a while. Why did I get another job? I can explain this with 2 words “start-up” and “commute”.
My old company Simple Star is based in San Francisco, which is about a 1 – 1 1/2 hour commute (depending on traffic) each way. It was very much a start-up company and with the long hours at work, plus commuting was really hard on me.
The sad part about me leaving is it’s a really cool company and I’m sure they will be extremely successful. If you’re looking for really easy photo software, go try PhotoShow Deluxe 4, here’s the link:
Also, here’s my old job if you’re interested:

Now onto info about my new job…
My new job is in Mountain View about a 15 min commute for me and I’m a QA Consultant (hopefully I’ll be permanent soon). The company is Centrify and we create software that allows computer’s with different operating systems (mac/linux/unix) to communicate with a component on Windows 2003 Servers called Active Directory. Kind of confused? Pretty much the software allows these other types of computers to use a Windows server environment.
I’m really excited about this opportunity since I get to test networking enviroments which has always interested me. Here’s some pictures of my new digs and the building:
