The new air is much better looking !
So a new chapter of my life begins next month when I change my place of work from 4.5 years of being a HPC / Unix admin @ ANSTO (http://www.ansto.gov.au) to become a senior security focused network engineer.
I will be moving to ICT Security, being based in North Sydney with a main focus on Juniper Networks security equipment and solutions. So expect to see Cooper @ more Sydney events and actually in the city. e.g. SAGE meetings etc.
APNIC (apnic.net) – The Asia Pacific Network Information Centre is holding APNIC 28 in Beijing this month. Along with this the NRO NC (Number Resource Organization Number Council) elections are being held this month. I have nominated myself as I would love to represent the APNIC region and assist the Internet through these tough tme (IPv4 sortage etc.).
Voting instructions are as follows:
Online voting for the Number Resource Organization (NRO) Number Council (NC) election opens 12 August 2009. Voting is only open to Members of APNIC until 9:00 UTC+8 (Beijing time), 26 August 2009. APNIC Member organizations can cast one vote each using MyAPNIC. Online voting is available to APNIC Member Corporate Contacts and Member Contacts with voting rights. By default, all Corporate Contacts have voting rights, and can assign voting rights to other contacts. Proxy votes, however, are not permitted for the NC election.

Last week friends and I from work attended Mac OS X Support Essentials. It was a fun week, especially heading out to China town for great asian cusine and the Bavarian Bier Cafe where I drank a few to many stiens … If you have never been there, go! The German food mixed with great “bier” = WIN WIN situation.
$17 of beer in comparion of $9 of Korea Food ! BBQ Beef – Couldn’t get Chilli Beef – I tried …
Make sure when your in China town next you try the fancy new “Sasuage Roll” as well:
On a good note aswell finally the pussy Dragons got up for a win. Some exciting attacking Rugby League from the boys brought joy to all Dragons fans especially me. Our dodgy right hand defense kept them in the game. So come on boys lets get a role on and off the bottom of the table. We are no longer the BOTTOM of the table.
Well, its Official now. I am a Junior Unix Systems Administrator and the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) and loving it. I am now in the real world, and thus that being the main reason to the lack of posts/activity here recently.
The last few days I attended Apple’s Leopard Tech Talks and things look really good for the latest version of OS X. Things are good, work is good nothing to complain about. I have also recently started a CCNA course to become a Cisco Certified Network Associate, so the study also continues for some “real work” industry qualifications. Just an update to inform whats been happening ;).
