    Got a call today from (one of) the recruitment advisors working on getting me moved. There’s an accountancy firm in Cwmbran very interested in speaking to me. They asked him to call me and provide their details to me, rather than the other way around. Looks like a very generous employment package, too.

    This could be the year I become a Taff.

    Arch Linux, on a Ryzen 7 1800X, 16 GB, 5 (yes -5) HDs inc 2 SSDs, 4 RPi 3Bs + 1 RPi 4B - one as an NFS server with two more drives, PiHole (shut yours), Plex server, cloud server, and other random Pi stuff. Nice CoolerMaster case, NV GTX 1070 8GB, and a whopping 32" AOC 1440P monitor.

    Good luck Dan, just don’t pig-out too much on the local delicacy of Jammie Dodgers!

    God luck Dan, I had a lot of good times in Cwmbran.

    Not as many loonies as Newport (in my day) but they were a few notches p the loony scale.

    LOL @PlaneMan. My Newport Local (a bikers/rock pub) is fine. I only mix with good people.

    But thank you all. I guess I’ll have an idea how things go by Thursday afternoon. I have a Skype interview lunchtime on Thursday.

    Well, it went better than I thought. They want to see me face to face, now.

    Just a quick update, here. I had second interview on Friday 13th. Also had an interview in Cardiff with a different firm in the morning. I was a very close 2nd for the Cardiff job, but got a very good offer from Cwmbran 10 minutes after leaving.

    Accepted, and the intention was to start 1 June. Then, of course, we went into lockdown.

    The offer is still live with start date to be agreed (and I received the formal offer on Friday) once the world settles down a bit, and just niggling over a couple of minor issues in the contract.

    So, I am going to be moving. Leanne was more nervous than me :)

    That’s good to hear, well done. There seems to be more Forumite members ‘out West’ than in the rest of the country!! :scratch:
