The Ramblings of a Damaged Mind
Onward and upward...
I've been so busy sometimes I forget what I've mentioned here and what I meant to and just never got around to saying...

Several weeks ago my boss, Paul, resigned. He moved on to a new role at a new company and I was sorry to see him go. I liked him and I liked working for him. Since he was Director of Operations, this left a hole. The department had been Paul, John, and myself, with qedrakmar helping out part time. Well, as of last Wednesday I am the Director of Information Technology Operations for Cyphermint, Inc. qedrakmar is now officially part of Operations, and helping out part time with Customer Support (a reversal), and he and John report to me. We're still getting settled in, and have a lot of work to do, but I'm kind of looking forward to it. They're both good guys and know their stuff, and I think we'll be a good team.

Congrats! Good luck doing more manager-ly stuff, it can be a tough transition. I had a hard time myself. Managing people requires a totally different skill set.

Promotions, like understanding, are a three edged sword. Who are you?

Congrats on the well deserved promotion, even if it's only on paper and not in the wallet.

Onwards and upwards. At this rate, you'll be running the company in five years.
All seriousness, congrats!

Cyphermint...no shit? I participated in a focus group there a year or so back. I knew you worked in the area. I go to Hannaford's a lot for lunch, and always keep an eye out for your Charger (so I can flash my tits, of course), but haven't seen it yet. Anyway, congratulations!
