I try not to blog about work much since I don't want to bring it home with me. When it's good news however, it's worth remembering.

I've been with the company now for 10 years and surprising received two promotions in the previous 2 years rising me to the rank of senior sys admin. My salary didn't raise accordingly and I could probably do better elsewhere. There are other benefits however like tuition reimbursement which I'm using to the full extent. That's another 15K a year that I treat as part of my salary.

Another big perk that I was lucky enough to get was a trip to Orlando Floris to attend Microsoft Ignite. That is Microsoft largest technical conference where they showcase all of their technology and offerings. In truth, it's a giant commercial for Microsoft products but as one that makes a living from these products, it's exciting for me. The trip was super busy with non-stop sessions to attend. After it was over, I stayed in Florida a couple of extra days to relax and visit my sister and nephew there.

In 3 days, I visited 3 Orlando attractions: Universal studios, Epcot, and Kennedy Space Center. Each was fun in a different way. I think I'll write a bit more about those parts of the trip but not at the moment. Stay tuned.
