My Last Day in Redmond


Well, today is my last day in Redmond. It’s pretty sad, but I’m really looking forward to being in Austin. It’s been a long stretch selling the house, buying a house, dealing with builders (if you’re considering building, let me know, and I’ll give you some tips.) And then there’s mortgage companies and movers and packers and schools and crying neighbors and utilities etc etc etc.


The upside is a change in lifestyle. My son sums it up nicely, “I get a pool? Cool!”

    yup!

    It’s fortunate that you are still working for Microsoft, really. Because I do hope Msft’s products is becoming more and more secure. And wo talents like u, can’t image how in-secure the msft’s products would be:)

    So, in short, it’s good that I can still read your articles on security!

    Buon viaggio!

    I have a long-time friend who moved to Austin last year and my sense is that they love it there.  There’s a lot to like about the University of Texas too.  I expect to hear that you are having fun.

    Ciao!

    Does Microsoft have an office in Austin? What do they do there? Besides isn’t Austin too hot?

    Austin’s a nice town. Good luck there.

    I’m in the UK but was talking to a friend in Austin last night. I have great memories of the city. It can get hot, and I know it’s growing and getting expensive to live, but I hope it’s stayed a little weird! If you like the Texas 2 Step check out the Broken Spoke.
