I have been offered a position at Opera as a Core Technology Tester and I will be moving to Oslo, Norway. The details are yet to be worked out, but I will most likely be going over in early August.

I’m really going to miss Australia heaps and it’s going to be hard leaving friends and family behind. But this is a good opportunity for me and, while I’m nervous, it’s really exciting. I’m hoping that I will be able to return for Web Directions at the end of September, though I don’t know for sure.

In the mean time, I’m going on my annual ski trip in 8 days (leaving Saturday, 2007-07-07). This year, we’re going to Perisher. I’m hoping the weather will be better than last year’s trip to Falls Creek.
