I'm working now at a managed service provider in Seattle; officially I make networks work, while unofficially I just make things work in general. Since the platform we use has a bunch of RedBack and FortiNet gear, time has been scarce as I've been learning how they work. Adding further to the newness, I now have a windows workstation at work.
Thanks to the good work by the Cygwin and Autohotkey teams, I have my normal working environment running on windows (Firefox, Vim, Rxvt, Screen, Subversion, Python, with Capslock remapped to Escape). For finishing off the windows annoyances, Autohotkey has worked phenomenally for mapping from a string of mouse operations to a single keyboard operation, or making non-notifying programs make use of the systray notifications on state change.
