Well ladies and gents, I've had a great time and learned alot and done alot at Volchok Consulting, but I got a great offer to work at another company called Affinity Solutions, so I took it. I start on Monday the 14th. It's a step down in title - from CTO to VP - but the work looks good, the team seems great, the technology and solutions in place seem interesting, and I'll be working for a great guy - their CTO, Mike Biamonte. I'm expecting I'll bump my head a couple of times into the "I don't actually run this whole place..." problem a few times, but I've worked there before and I respect MB very highly, so I think it's going to work out great. I've been in the same place for a long time, and I really haven't had much of an opportunity to really flex my metaphorical muscles. I think I will get to do that at Affinity. It's an exciting time, and a little bit scary, but I can't wait to get started. I of course won't be completely abandoning the guys at Volchok - I've been there a while, and I consider many of my fellow employees as good friends. And of course, there's Total Annihilation, which I don't intend to give up. So I'll be even busier than usual for a while, but I hope to be able to squeeze in some time to write something in here at some point. We'll see.
