So I got Project Fi because I moved my primary Tmobile account over to my iPhone 6+ for work. As I mentioned, the IOS ecosystem is much kinder at work to handle mobile email, calendaring, wireless at work. I guess this means my iPhone 6+ is my primary device. My Nexus 6 now runs Project Fi. I’m going to evaluate what I do but the whole deal is something I have wanted with Project Fi. At some point, I’ll cancel Tmobile completely and just use the Fi service. If you travel around, have no home, have no real base of operation, Project Fi makes more sense. It bonds to whatever cell/mobile operator is out there and it makes use of WiFi as well. I also ported my Google Voice number to it. This means if I do take another job where I would use that number as a work number, its much easier now since I can have Google Voice on a piece of equipment. Who knows what happens next? A friend at IBM has let me know that her hiring manager wants me to work with her team in the cloud operations group. I would manage medium to large on premise and cloud gigs much like I did before.
I hate it say it; but the holidays really mean little or nothing besides time off from work. I don’t have any kind of that blessed spirit or desire or thankfulness or faith or desire to have any of those things. I just take the time off, drink beer, and do whatever it is I can do to try to survive the days. I think that this is a product of the divorce and the fact that Thanksgiving was my favorite holiday of all. I loved the food part of things, being with the kids, cooking the Turkey on the BBQ grill. Watching the football games through the day. Perhaps it was that prime American dad thing. That’s gone and now its just a day that I spend as another weekend day. I bet lots of people really don’t like the holidays and I bet there are a lot of divorced folks out there that really don’t like them. Someone told me once I was broken and the pieces did not fit together again. That’s true. I broke into some pieces and I cannot even find all of them. But I would not be looking anyways over the next 40 or so days. I just want to get through that so I can talk about…
I don’t really like the way it is at work now. Big projects pending and I don’t even know if I will be there. Bunch of BS. This or that could happen. I could stay or leave. I could easily go back to IBM for another year or I could stay at TiVo. By the end of December though, those folks will hear from me. I won’t start projects that I will not finish. They will have to tell me at the start of the year if I stay.
Have a nice one if you observe it. If not, enjoy the time off. I intend on doing the latter.
