The CIO visited this week. Apparently, my particularly vocal previous staff member had a meeting with him, raising the issues of the previous regime. This came up in the group meeting, where the CIO acknowledged the previous leadership hadn't led us well, said something about different styles, and then qualified with a, "not to say one style is better than another."

I so wanted to blurt, yes you CAN say one is better. But i didn't.


Under the weather with a lousy head cold. Multiple days.


My vacation begins as soon as we finish the install in Sydney tomorrow (3 am their time). Yay! To help me stay up until this midnight install for our east coast data centers, we watched "Reign over Me" which i found endearing. There are strong parallels with "The Fisher King," although it's far less manic.

... and i still didn't post. My new manager encouraged me to skip this morning's Sydney install, so i slept through. Sinus headache this morning.

But i'm on vacation!

Hm. Well, diplomatically, "style" should be granted it's leeway. Flashing to that Robin Williams movie (Patch Williams?), and the discussion how they both are trying to make people feel and be better, in their own way: "Yeah, but you suck at it!"

(It's also possible that he's just being careful, knowing that in *any* major change, some people will be unhappy, so he's acknowledging that pain.)
