It's been strange. My boss has decided to step sideways into a technical position, and give up all the management stuff to two other people. It's not bad. It's just change, so everything's a little uncertain and people are trying to figure out how to step into the void that'd being left. Boss Bill was very opinionated, very sharp and very much into all the technical aspects of what's going on with the whole system. He'll still be in on all the meetings, he just won't be leading them anymore, and no one can quite imagine what that'll be like.

But he'll get a rest, and he really needs it. He was great a grasping problems and driving them to a solution that was complete; but as a result of that, he was also really bad about letting certain problems go even if he gave over responsibility for it to someone else. So it's going to be just really interesting to see how that changes.

My present projects and problems involved a two hour meeting yesterday where we finally got things resolved in a way that completely confused me. But we got it all straightened out this morning, so I've been cleaning up after it all. That's been okay. I should be able to take the afternoon off, after I'm done with all this, and we're having a meeting tomorrow morning to deal with something new that came up. But I did what I had to for that, and I'm tired, too.

Getting that done involved a bit more perl wrangling that went very well once I figured out how to use the defined() proc. I like that.
