So, after much deliberating between us and canvassing others opinions at Ogg Camp, Philip finally did the dirty deed today and handed in his resignation notice. Yes, that’s right, you read it correctly – Philip has given up a well paid, full time job to go self employed!
I have always had more belief in Philip’s abilities as a web developer, programmer and sys admin than he has, but he has finally listened to she-who-must-be-obeyed and agreed that now is the time to see if he can make a go of it on his own. I even managed to blag him his first job today; giving a talk about CrunchBang Linux to Hull LUG on the 6th September. Just a pity I forgot to negotiate a rate of pay!
Philip has my full support and backing, and I wish him the very best of luck as he strikes out on his new venture. Exciting times ahead and here’s hoping for a long and successful career for him as a freelancer.
