I was late getting home tonight (around 7 p.m.), as I was talking to my boss about my promotion. I've now entered the ranks of management! Effective tomorrow, I'm the company's new Support Manager. I heard a couple of weeks ago that this could be happening, but I didn't get confirmation until today. The rest of the company is learning about it tomorrow.

We're still ironing out the details of my position, but I'm going to have peeps! I'll have half a dozen people reporting to me.

I'm still not sure what all I'll be doing. I'm going to have to learn our older product so that I can support it, and manage the folks who support it. I'll also have a bunch of administrative things to do.

I'm pretty excited about it, and kind of in shock. I'll explain more about the job later. I just wanted to post something before going to bed.

Rock, you do. Way to go. From here it's just a short step to the vice presidency. And then, dictatorial powers! Bwah-hah-haaah!

No, wait. It's been done.

Congratulations, Allan!

Thanks, guys!

I haven't done anything really managerial yet, and it's going to be phased in and not totally, 100% official (i.e. folks will come to me first and not our/my current manager) until the end of the month. But it's happening.

'Course now I have to learn our Unix product...
