New Job!

I've just finished my second week here at DRW Trading Group. So far I've been extremely impressed by the quality of the people, the number of interesting projects going on, and the overall energy of the place. It's also been fun catching up with the various ThoughtWorkers roaming the halls here.

Windows XP was installed on my machine when I first arrived, but I'm happy to say that's been remedied and I'm now up and running with Ubuntu 8.10. Combined with a dual quad-core machine and a 30" monitor (plus a 19" side monitor) it's definitely the nicest workstation I've ever had. Much appreciated.

As for what I'm actually working on here at DRW, all I can say is that I'm in the "algorithmic trading group", of which the first rule is "don't talk about the algorithmic trading group" (intellectual property and all). So we'll leave it at that for now...
