You might all be wondering where the heck I’ve been the last couple of weeks and why there isn’t yet a blog post on how to do LDAP groups-based RBAC with declarative_authorization and ActiveLdap. There is a branch in my authlogic_example fork for that, but I haven’t had time to write new content for the blog because…

I’m moving. Moving day is tomorrow and I’m still scrambling to get everything ready. The logistics look like they’re going have very little room for error but I think we’ll be fine; we’ve got lots of help!

My good friend and long-time housemate has been hired up by PostRank — this was partly my doing and Twitter was involved — and so he and his girlfriend are moving out to Kitchener/Waterloo. I have decided to move back to Toronto (I lived in North York before).

I look around the house, clean almost to the point of being sterile and filled with boxes of our stuff, and realize that I’m going to miss this place and these people I’ve been living with. But life is full of changes, entrances, exits, and opportunities. I look forward to being closer to all of the awesome stuff that the TO tech community organizes in the city and to all of my friends who I’ve lost contact with since moving out to Mississauga two years ago. After I’ve settled back into the city, I also plan to try and revive my currently pod-fading podcast: The Japanese Learner.

Where one adventure ends, a new one begins.
