First week over
This afternoon, I also started the second part of my role there — I’ll be doing some sysadmin-type stuff, on a rather more serious level than I’ve had the opportunity to do before. I’m setting up a brand-new (had to unpack it and everything) server to act as a master for a cluster, and then experiment with SystemImager so that we can easily roll out upgrades.
It’s a pretty cool place to work, too; there’s various sport and social groups (including cycling and running, helpfully), and there’s also apparently an agreement with a gym nearby to allow PML staff to use their facilities.
Looking forward to the rest of the year. (Hopefully not famous last words…)
