The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

Great, now I have to train my next manager

Today my manager at the Ft. Lauderdale Office of the Corporation just announced he's retiring. Not immediately, but by first quarter next year, maybe second quarter. I'm sad to see him go, but alas, these things happen. He's the 6TH manager I've had since I started here at The Corporation.

I was sad when managers #1 & #3 left and #4 & #5 were let go (#2 wasn't a good fit for what I was doing at the company, even though technically he headed the QA department when I technically was working as a QA engineer—I was the only QA engineer for call processing while the rest of the department dealt with Android phones), but things will work out.

I don't know if I should be amused or alarmed that I've outlasted six managers.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.

It is assumed that every brand name, slogan, corporate name, symbol, design element, et cetera mentioned in these pages is a protected and/or trademarked entity, the sole property of its owner(s), and acknowledgement of this status is implied.
