In my last post I wrote what I planned on building for my home developer rig.

A few changes were made.

* I went with an extra hard drive and I will run RAID 0.

* I measured the compartment in my desk where I planned on putting my case and lo and behold it was too small for the Antec case I Picked out. I had to settle on a smaller box, which will probably mean more noise, but no option here.

* I went with an nVidia card as opposed to an ATI card. Too many people I talked to had problems with them.

* Swapped out the PSU for one that is supposed to be quiter.

Here is the system I ordered. If UPS stays on track I will be having a Friday geek night!

Moving On

Moving On

May 30, 2007

It is time for me to move on from my current employer. I have been with this company since 2000 (with a brief stint elsewhere) and it is really time to go. As is the case with most developers, if you don't learn new things on a daily basis your job can get pretty boring. I tried to keep myself going here since, in general, it is a great company to work for, but I know I have to go. I believe that I have reached the limit to what I can learn on my own. 

There are certain things that you can pick up much easier when you are working with a group of smart guys who like to share their knowledge. That being said, I am going to an application development company (Hedgehog Development) that specializes in .NET, SiteCore, SharePoint, and Visual Studio Team System. They have some great projects already in the works and some good stuff down the pipe as well.

Change is good and I'm glad you're taking control of your career and able to make decisions that help you learn the most.  Congrats, Sean!  Maybe with the new job you'll be able to attend New England Code Camp? Smile

Sean Kearney

Thanks Dave.
I think NE Code Camp may be a possibility! I should be participating a lot more in the .NET community being that the company I am working for runs the Long Island .NET users group!

It's a strange thing to run into another "Sean Kearney" who's hit the same set of crossroads in his life.... ;)

Great I like the Icon.   "Kearney" from the Simpsons (As I remember, spelt the correct way too).

Cheers.
