My team lead is out of the country. He plans to take a month and a half off. Guess who gets to do his job? Yep. It is me. I am also supposed to do my normal job too. There is no way that is going to happen.
I spend all day managing the team. That means I give status to the higher ups. And when a developer gets stuck, I have to help them out. Then I also do a lot of planning. This is just no fun.
To tell you the truth, I can't wait until I get to go back to doing technical work. These days I do none of that. And that sucks I tell you. I want to return to the high life again. Right Steve Winwood?
Edgy Rebranding - I just read that 37Signals is changing their name to Basecamp. That seemed odd initially. I know them by 37Signals. Why give up all that brand juice? Sure...
