The First Day of the Rest of My Life

I always remember the saying that tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life.  It refers to taking each day as it comes and making the best of it, and not concerning yourself with what you can no longer change - the past. This has new resonance for me today as tomorrow I start on a new job, as Webmaster for SkySQL Ab.

For the last five and a half years I've worked for MySQL in all its forms.  Initially MySQL AB, then the Database Group in Sun Microsystems, and finally the Open Source business unit in Oracle. (For anyone still at Oracle, forgive me if I get the names wrong, I don't think I ever fully worked out what our group's official name was).  For most of that time I've loved every minute of it, working with great people on a great product and bringing it to the world (or at least the World Wide Web in my case).

Now I get to work with some great people, many of whom I already know, on great products, bringing them to the World Wide Web.

For those of you that have noticed I've been quieter than usual over the past few weeks, fear not, I am not de-voiced, but simply taking a break so I can arrive at the new job refreshed and ready to roll.
