Survey Reminder, upcoming staffing changes

Hi, all.

First of all, here’s a reminder about the user survey we’re conducting as announced in the last update. You can find the survey at the URL below, and it’s pretty quick. Should only take a few minutes to fill out. I’ll be closing the survey down at the end of the month.


Next up, we’ve got some staffing changes coming up. On April 4th we’ll be welcoming our newest team member, Brad Fritz. He’ll be joining us as a Systems Administrator, filling the role than John Roberts had previously worked under before his promotion in LCRC. Brad will be joining us from Motorola where he has a long history maintaining various wireless and telecom installations. But his passion’s been doing unix administration, and he’s very happy to be finally getting to do it for a living instead of a hobby. He’s excited to join Argonne, and we’re thrilled to have him!

Lastly, some bittersweet news. Many of you surely know this by now, but Ti Leggett is leaving our team to go on to bigger things. He’s not leaving Argonne, thankfully, as he’s joining ALCF as their new Deputy Project Director & Deputy Director of Operations. Our loss is most assuredly ALCF’s gain. I’m sure you’ll all join me in congratulating Ti and wishing him great success in his new role; I’m confident he’s going to be amazing.

As such, we’ve got a new hole to fill on this team, so if you know of people who might be interested in a leadership role dealing with production computing in CELS, let me know.
