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.

Meeting my new manager before training my new manager

I finally met my new manager! It's been … what? 3½ months? … since it was announced. I decided to ask a VP of the Corporate Overlords who was my actual manager, M1 (who was promoted) or M2 (who is to replace the promoted manager). The VP said M2, and that since I have yet to meet him, I should invite him to the next department meeting. Why it should be up to me to invite M2 to our daily meeting and not M1 is apparently beyond my pay grade, but I invited him.

And it turns out the situation is still … complicated. M1 is still my “manager” for some things for the forseeable future, and M2 is my “manager” for the other things not handled by M1 for the forseeable future. But overall, the meeting went well. We shall see how things go.

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.
