News from the coal face

Day three of my new job so I figure that I can actually do some non-work related stuff while I'm waiting for the Visual Studio 2005 service pack to install.

I am so glad I waited for the offer from this lot rather than just accepting the other offer. I'm loving it here already, plus they offered more money, which is a bonus.

The company is called Redgum and they're based in Brunswick East on Lygon St, just up from Brunswick Rd (corner of Lygon and Barkley). They are a software development house and they have a number of products on the market already, including a number of layout tools for newspapers under the Advanced Publishing Systems (APS) banner.

There are 7 others in Redgum that I have met so far. Robin's in charge, and there are 6 other developers (I'm sure they have different titles, but they're all developers, including Robin), but there is also APS upstairs which has a lot of people I haven't met yet.

All in all I'm loving it. I felt comfortable from my first day which is very unusual for me. The people are cool, the work is interesting, and I don't think I'm going to have any troubles here.

Very happy Random.

Redgum?
I swear I've played games made by Redgum... recently too... Damn the geographical location of my games shelf!

I don't think the Redgum that I work for has ever made computer games. I'll check.

naah, don't fash it.
It's not really important, and most likely to be a glitch in my memory.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
