Big news…I’m moving to North Carolina. I have accepted a position as a Software Development Engineer with Network Appliance, Inc. (Netapp). It sounds like a very exciting and challenging job, and I think I will enjoy it a lot. Nonetheless, it was a very tough decision to leave IBM. IBM is a great company, and I am really going to miss the people here. I just think that this position meets my long-term goals better. My last official day at IBM is September 30, 2005.

I’ve only been to North Carolina once, and that was a few weeks ago when I interviewed. I’m not sure what to expect, but I know it will be much different than Arizona (Really?). I suppose I’ll have to get used to the humidity, the cold weather, and possibly even hurricanes and ice storms.
