Leaving Here

less than 1 minute read

They say that all good things come to an end; today, that’s true for both Superpatterns at blogs.sun.com and my nearly ten year tenure at Sun. It’s certainly been a wild ride, and I’ve enjoyed (amost!) every minute of it! My blog will move to blog.superpat.com (If you’ve been using the FeedBurner feed, there’s no need to make any changes) at some point in the next day or so, and I’ll be starting a new job on Monday.

I’m setting up the new blog right now (thanks to Arun Gupta for his suggestion of WordPress hosting at GoDaddy), and I’ll be blogging on my new gig next week. In the meantime, here’s ‘Leaving Here’ from the mighty Motörhead:

By the way, fellow pedants, it’s ‘Leaving Here’ (with a ‘g’) - the YouTube caption is wrong. Evidence.

Congratulations Pat - hope the new Gig. works out. Though I can't believe you didn't hang in there long enough to get your 10 yr award - I hear Oracle give out bronze Larry Ellison busts :)

Many congratulations and best wishes, Pat. You're such an icon for OpenSSO that it's unimaginable that you're leaving. Thanks for all your support and camaraderie over the years.

I look forward to staying in touch.

Rich - since I joined through an acquisition, my 'official' time at Sun is counted from July 1997, so I got my 10 year watch already.

Do you think the 15 year award would be a SILVER bust of Larry??? ;-)

Robin Wilton

What a huge loss to Sun (and/or potentially Oracle...), and a correspondingly big win for whoever has landed you. Every good wish for your new role.

PS - So, Patrick H wasn't just spreading mischief and rumour on Tuesday evening, then!!
