The rumours are true, it is official: I have quit my job at BarNet. For the last seven years I've worked in a couple of great projects, learned a lot more about networks, systems and people than I already knew.

A couple of highlights and learned lessons:

And some learned lessons:

Of course, I could bitch and moan about the bad things which have shown up in the last year but let's keep it positive.

Now I'm in the handover phase... Which of course totally doesn't go as I had hoped for. We had two months time for it, in which we could do one month for handover, then two or three weeks for the last items which were missing or not clear or where the new people needed their hands to be held. But it was decided that it all should happen in the last two weeks...

Next step? Nothing set in stone yet, just talking. Want to talk to me?

You write a great blog. What is great is that you think it desirable to "bitch and moan" without expressing what it is that you would bitch and moan about. You have always been invited to express that. But you haven't. It made it very hard when you had such pent up feelings which you have been incapable of expressing.

I guess your tag for this item said it all.

CommentI find "You have always been invited to express that" an amazing comment.

I have heard Edwin try to express his concerns over and over and over again. And I am completely aware that his technical advice was ignored over and over and over again.

Whether he was free to 'express himself' or not, is moot. But what was the point? Nothing was heeded, no genuine consideration was given. Why would he keep trying to smack his head against that brick wall?

No wonder he disengaged from that.

Oh, how I hope for him to find a position where his technical expertise is respected.
