From the “Get a Perspective” file.

  1. I have a job. That’ s good in this economy.
  2. I have a job that pays enough for me to raise a family in Pacific Grove California.
  3. I have insurance.
  4. I work in a field I love.  How many can say that? I could be roofing again. Hello!!
  5. Boo hoo. It’s ONLY a single rack of equipment. $250K of toys.

It doesn’t matter if it’s 1 rack or 60. You perform your job to the best of your ability. Period. No discussion.

Playing with only 1 rack should also give me time to do some of the odds and ends I haven’t had a chance to. Like becoming a better programmer. Which, frankly I suck at. Maybe a little GPGPU CUDA style programming on the side. Maybe start working on my degree. Having time could be a good thing.  Maybe I was just looking at this from the wrong perspective.
