So the job change has commenced. After five years of employment, today was my last day with Plexus Scientific. I’m not really sure what I think about it yet. I’ve been there for a long time, and the time was really right for me to move on. I’ll miss a lot of my now-former coworkers though.
I mentioned I’d gotten a new job, but I didn’t give any more details. I like to keep things quiet until everything is completely finalized. The position I’ve been offered is doing web development with Network Solutions, LLC. The company is one of the oldest and most well-known Internet companies and was, until 1999, the only domain registrar for .com, .net, and .org addresses. In other words, if you wanted to buy a .com address before 1999, your only option was to buy it from Network Solutions. The industry has since been deregulated and there are tons of competitive registrars now, but Network Solutions is still one of the best known. The company also now sells web hosting plans, email plans, and more in addition to domain registration.
It sounds like a great opportunity and should be a lot of fun. I start this coming Monday.
