It's been a difficult time, the last few months, but I've finally got some short updates.
First, in two short weeks I will be gainfully employed again at (UltraSoc) as Senior Software Tester, developing test framework solutions for SoC debugging, including on RISC-V. Despite vast numbers of discussions with a long list of recruitment agences, success came from a face to face encounter at a local Job Fair. Many thanks to Cambridge Network for hosting the event.
Second, I've finally accepted that https://www.codehelp.co.uk was too old to retain and I'm simply redirecting the index page to this blog. The old codehelp site hasn't kept up with new technology and the CSS handles modern screen resolutions particularly badly. I don't expect that many people were finding the PHP and XML content useful, let alone the now redundant WML content. In time, I'll add redirects to the other codehelp.co.uk pages.
Third, my job hunting has shown that the centralisation of decentralised version control is still a thing. As far as recruitment is concerned, if the code isn't visible on GitHub, it doesn't exist. (It's not the recruitment agencies asking for GitHub links, it is the company HR departments themselves.) So I had to add a bunch of projects to GitHub and there's a link now in the blog.
Time to pick up some Debian work again, well after I pay a visit or two to the Cambridge Beer Festival 2019, of course.
