Subtitle: New Stress, but Good Stress

Well, just started my new job yesterday, and man, talk about jumping on a learning curve.  Surprisingly, this doesn’t bother me too much.  I’m playing with some pretty hardcore gear, and isn’t that what it’s all about?

Let’s put it this way:

If you’re a pilot, you probably want to fly fighter jets or the big airliners.  Something fast, or something big and serious.

If you’re a crane operator, you probably want to work the big Sky Cranes.

If you’re like me, and a geek, you want to work with the high end hardware, doing interesting things with cutting edge software and code tools.

It’s not about the pay, really, it’s about the challenge.

I got lucky.  I get to play with some really cool, high end hardware, and do some really interesting stuff with it.  Sure, I may be in a bit over my head right now, but from talking to the people around here, they all felt that way when they started.  The general impression I get is that it takes months to really get the swing of the toolset here.

And I’m ok with that.

At least I won’t get bored with it anytime soon.

Something to say?
