It's official! My workplace has just been declared the #1 place to work in Australia!
Now, it's hard to say whether this is true, as I've really only worked at one place (well..maybe two if you count SAAB), but it is rather nice. The food is still excellent, we now have a new pool table, and I'm starting to enjoy the flexible working hours - recently I picked up some flu going around (NOT swine flu) and have been able to take a few days off, doing some work from home.

In the meantime, I've found out I get a three week trip to the US (providing the aforementioned flu thing doesn't get out of control)! All new fulltimers get to visit the homebase in mountain view for some training. Which means I'm out of sydney from 22nd May - 12th June, but also that I get to check out the famed Googleplex, complete with numerous cafes and even ball pit!

Happy Easter!

Just a really quick update to say thanks to all those people I met up with in Adelaide over the easter weekend, twas a good (albeit busy) weekend. And to those I didn't see, apologies - the four days filled up faster than I had thought. I hope you all had a great weekend, and I might be back in Adelaide next long weekend (early June).

Until then, the next while will probably be rather busy again, so just a warning that responses from me may be a bit slow, but I'm still here! It'll all make sense eventually, I swear, but I can't tell you when :p
