You Can't Always Get What You Want

But if you try, sometimes, you get what you need

McFilter was one year old on Friday! I'm quite surprised. I didn't think I'd keep it going as long as that.

A year ago, I was talking about life outside my comfort zone. Since then I've moved back into the outskirts with regular trips out to the discomfort frontier, but all that's about to change.

Last week, my contract with Trigenix came up for renewal, and they wanted me to go back to working full-time. I was a little surprised, as there'd been no indication that there was any problem with my working part-time, but it was a pretty easy decision to make.

Friday 7th May 2004 will be my last day as an employee, and I'll then be back to full-time self-employed. I'd have preferred to get a bit further with developing my software before jumping ship, but this should give me opportunity to focus fully on what I really want to be doing. Time for some more detailed planning of what's left to do, and catching up with my accounts to check that I'll be able to fund things.

I noticed just now that I'd been blogging for a year too - my first post was a day before yours though. I wonder if I win something...

Surely it means you'll be rich and famous one day earlier than me, so I'll have suitable warning to preen myself for the press.
