Just thought I'd share my news :) As of August 2nd I will be a GIS Officer for Warwickshire Wildlife Trust (if you're ever in Warwick/Coventry/Stratford-upon-Avon area drop me a line!). I will be getting locked in a tiny room with three others for five days a week, but the good news is:

No more mosquito bites
Lots more time on the 'Net (so I'll be joining in more again)
Money!

Congrats and welcome to cubicle hell. Stratford-Upon-Avon, birthplace of Willie Shake? Do you know where Castle Donington is?

Sounds like a great job - and a beautiful part of the country to boot. We look forward to more of the mouse!

Warwickshire Wildlife Trust website:

They don't have maps online yet - but I'll be working on it!

And yes, it is allegedly Shakeseare country - with all the Amercan tourists to prove it :-D However, I'd like to point out that he ran away to the bright lights of London, so I'd say it's more the 'Shakespeare abandoned country'...

I will be going to see the RSC, though. S'gotta be done.

Congratulations on the new post. (For some odd reason, I have a mental image of a group of folks in some manor house basement working to break the enigma code ;-)). Look forward to seeing you arround here more often. :-D

I may just have to. I'm planning an around-the-world trip for next year, with three or four days in the UK.

Congratulations!!!

If you don’t have a window, get a poster of a window for your cubicle. Also make sure that you get a good chair! Our GIS tech just got one, and I think it has everything except an electric seat heater…

Oooooh, Sydney laefest?
Sydney is definitely a stop. Must-visit destinations are London, Johannesburg, Hong Kong, Sydney, and Aukland. The trick is filling in the blanks, and coming up with an interesting, month-long trip with an airfare of $4,000. I'd like to get a destination in South America in there, too, just so I can say that I've visited every continent except Antarctica.[/ot]

Dan: There used to be a flight from Harrare, Zimbabwe to Perth on Quantas, Rio to Harrare/Luande, Angola on Varig and I think one from Santiago to Tahiti to Fiji to Sydney or Cairns via Easter Islands on a twin engine otter :-c ....ha ha ha......just make sure Frenchy isn't conducting unauthorized nuclear testing north of Tahiti :-# ??? The southern hemisphere sure gets shafted on flights eh? Also a circumpolar route may have been started again by AeroLineas Aregentina from Buenos Aires to Sydney over the South Pole.....? One emergency landing away from Antarctica 8-!
