Well, its my 364th day on “The Island”, and for those who have never read my blog, or even know who I am, it means I have spent 364 days living outside my native Ontario, on Montreal Island Quebec. That’s right 1 day short of a year. On January 2nd, 2012, I left my brothers apartment in Cornwall Ontario and made the huge leap to move myself to a whole new city and province. The very odd thing is, is how this all came about…

Google Maps is a huge resource these days for those looking for directions. In the last few years they have traveled the streets giving you the ability to “Be there” visually instead of just looking ta map. Recently Google has taken on a new challenge, bring you into local businesses and Historical Buildings.

One of the buildings Google has taken on is the Atwater Library and Computer Centre where you can now find a pic of Yours Truly (see picture below).

Some other cool places they have been in are Kappo Nagi in Kyoto, Japan, Chataigner Yves in Paris, France, and even Restaurant Chez Queux here in Montreal, QC.

Well I am on my way to train for my new position as a Computer Center Manager And Network/System administrator at the Atwater Library and Computer Center. I didn’t get much sleep last night, prolly Cruz of nerves and excitement of the new job and the new responsibilities I will be undertaking.

Its been a while since I have been a system admin for someone other than family. As many know I spent 7 years being a system admin for Koster Interactive Design inc., my late father’s company. I have also spent the last 2years being
the system admin for IceWeb Solutions Inc., my brother’s company. So its not like I am going in unprepared, its just that for the first time since college I will be in charge of a whole network and not just a server.

Ok, so I figured I would make a mega post with a few new and exciting things that are going on. First we here at ConsideredNormal.com have started using WordPress.com’s JetPack which allows us to seamlessly connect to Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr without having to create applications and set up complex configurations. This of course being the first post after installing the tool as we shall see how well it works on all fronts.
