Coming up on the end of my fourth week at Coffee Meets Bagel. Starting Monday I’ll work remotely from Seattle. It’s been a fun onboarding period but I’m bushed!
I’ve ended my first week at Coffee Meets Bagel. Lots of orientation, names to learn, and tools & processes to understand!
I’ve started digging into the code base and was able to made two minor pull requests. I definitely did not earn my pay this week and I’m telling myself to relax and to not beat myself up about it.
My flight home is delayed. It’s easy to blame the airline, but of course they don’t want the flight delayed either. It’s probably bad weather. On the other hand, I have a shiny new Apple/LG UltraFine 5K display waiting for me at home to unpack and play with this weekend. Can’t wait! Squeeeeeee!
Monday I start working for Coffee Meets Bagel. I’ll be working remotely for them out of my home. One or two days a week I may use a nearby coffee shop.
When you depart a job, the most important thing to receive is your coworkers’ good wishes and compliments. And feels so good.
This coming Monday is my last day at CBRE.
I’ve enjoyed working with smart people for the past year, building a new internal tool for CBRE’s brokers and managers. A new chapter begins for me in a couple of weeks, but right now I’m amazed at how productive a small motivated team can be. I’m thankful I could be a part of it.
Here’s a complete printset of the Venus Ibox, from 1984. It includes Ibox block diagrams, module and MCA block diagrams, and schematics for the MCAs and modules.
I’d bet my bottom dollar that there were ECOs after this version. But this hardware ran VAX/VMS and oodles of software.
Most of the page tops are faded. 75% of it is due to fading in the originals, and 25% is due to less-than-meticulous copying by FedEx.
These may already exist in some online computing history museum. But it’s a Sunday night, so here they are. They’re great reads if you’re interested in DEC culture.
