I am now at Google!

Yesterday, I became a Google employee.

I know that there has been quite a hiatus in my MySQL related activities but it wasn't all without good reason. The first proper holiday I have had in a few years.

Tomorrow afternoon, I hope to spend some time with Mark Callaghan ... It would be a nice break from the new-employee orientation and tutorials and hopefully a chance to meet more of my new colleagues.

Probably this coming weekend, I'll dust off the External Language SP work and perform some much needed tidy ups. It is a shame that Bazaar seems quite overtaxed by the MySQL codebase that doing a quick clone is no longer a possibility - specifying "hardlink" does speed it up but it still takes an age. For as much as we did complain at MySQL about BitKeeper, it at least did not often leave us waiting for unreasonable periods of time.

And before anyone asks.... No. I do not know what projects Google has in store for me. I expect I will find out soon enough.

Exciting times!
