I have moved from Los Angeles to beautiful Sunnyvale in SF-Bay Area. I am now working as Network Software Engineer at Blue Coat Systems Inc ( http://www.bluecoat.com ).
It is a big relief to have a job on hand :-). I am now looking for an appartment and a Car.
Meanwhile on technical side, my favorite Linux distribution, Mandriva Linux acquired yet another company called Lycoris. This will be a great boost to desktop Linux. I hope Mandriva continues to enhance their Linux product( and also continue to provide it free of cost :-)).
