Drizzle is now my job

I've been involved with the Drizzle project since very soon after it began, working on it on nights and weekends.

That has just changed. As of today, I'm no longer a MySQL Professional Services consultant, instead I'm part of a new division of Sun

Much of my time is to be spent working on Drizzle, with a focus on plugin interfaces and making it work well in Extremely Large distributed environments.

I will be blogging heavily about what I am doing. How I sort that blogging out between my personal LiveJournal, my (mostly unused) Sun employee blog, and maybe some other blog system, remains TBD.

This is going to be fun.

New Glasses

I just bought a new pair of glasses.

Fancy new memory titanium half rim frames, the very latest high RI lenses, anti-glare, and they darken in sunlight.

I would have paid almost 700 at the optican's shop.

I paid less than 200 for them. From 39dollarglasses.com



When they arrive, I will send my old frames in to them get new lenses as well, plus I'm probably going to get a pair of burning man googles, and get rx lenses put in them.

And I'm thinking about getting some brass steampunk googles, and getting rx lenses put in them...


You can get new glasses for Eight Dollars! I remember my parents having to take a deep breath to buy my glasses when I was a kid.

Yay for imports, cheap manufactured goods, and deflationary pressure!
