I started working for Scotland Online as a contractor, for three days a week, back in March 2006. I’ve continued contracting since then, seeing the company’s name change to Brightsolid and become a wholly-owned subsidiary of DC Thomson. I started working five days a week back in July 2009, when my contract at the University of Dundee came to an end.

And now, at the end of what I consider to be a rather lengthy four-and-a-half-year probationary period, I have signed a contract to become an employee. Now I get pension contributions! Sick pay! Health insurance! Holiday pay! And discounted subscriptions to the The Beano and The People’s Friend!*

My work will continue without significant change; I’ll still be working from home for most of the working week, and spending much of my time developing software and database solutions to support the acquisition and management of historical data archives. The work is often a fascinating combination of history and technology.

And it’s a sunny day in Dundee.
