Mea Culpa…

I have been very neglectful of this blog lately. While I am not making any excuses, I have been *extremely* busy at work for the last 6 months or so. The credit union where I work (VSECU),continues to grow quite rapidly. As a matter fact, we are in the process of opening *THREE* new branches around the state. One in Waterbury to place the one destroyed by Hurricane Irene, a full-service branch in Rutland to replace the small branch in the downtown area and a brand new branch in Brattleboro. All three of these will likely come alive in the next couple of weeks… and certainly by the end of the year.

As some of you may know from my bio, I am the VP of the computer department there and, in order to support all of the new technology that these new branches will have (check-scanning ATMs and video teller machines), I have also been rolling out a new fiber optic Wide Area Network (WAN) to connect all of our sites together. This is a huge undertaking under normal circumstances, but the devastation of Irene across our beautiful state has made the construction of this new network a NIGHTMARE!! I’ll be very glad when this project is done…

I *will* resume my regular updates of this blog in 2012… Thanks for your patience!!
