O.o Headed Overseas

So, I've just received some rather Big Deal news about my job and the work I'll be doing over the next year. I was informed today that I was selected for a temporary position that I applied for in December.

This position involves me spending 6 months overseas as a civilian in an active combat zone. I don't really feel comfortable being more specific in that.

So, in late July, I will be headed overseas to proudly and voluntarily serve my country. I will be there until February of '14.

As you might imagine, this will have a severe impact on my contributions here. I don't even know what the connectivity will be like when I get over there.

Right now, I am focusing on getting my life in order to prepare for my new position. In terms of commissions, I will be focusing all my efforts on finishing my current commitments (Estrid Dev & Operation: Yellow Hammer). Beyond that, I will have to make an assessment of my priorities and decide if I'm going to allow any future commissions in the time I have before I my departure. Chances are, I will be writing very much on a case-by-case basis for people I already know & enjoy working with.

Thank you all for reading!

Way to go! Not sure exactly what you're doing, but my company actually hires a lot of people once they come back from those sorts of arrangements. From what I've seen connectivity isn't actually as scarce as you might expect over there, though free time is.
