Calibrating the Matrix...

But then, I got another job offer that I couldn't refuse...

I should have known better though. #1 - I couldn't get passionate about my job, our product, or the company. Analytics are cool, but they aren't something that makes me want to get out of bed in the morning. B) The commute got worse, much worse. not only was it longer, it was on a worse stretch of road notorious for lots of accidents. And thirdly, the demand was worse than when I was working for myself. It was a startup, so I was the ONLY Systems Admin and, besides the CEO, the only person with access to the data center which is where I spent most of my time. That meant that I was on call 24/7 and while that seems like just a saying, I literally was working all hours of they day/night/weekend. 

It was ironic though that the data-center was the exact same data center from the last company, and the racks we had were in the same cage, and on the same row. Basically my scenery didn't change in the data-center at all, I just simply swiveled my chair around and boom, at the new job!
