Everything Old is New Again

That's a quote, don't know who said it but here at work it's true. I'll let you all in on a secret (or maybe not so much of one) I'm looking for a new job. My time here at DP is done, for 7 years I've been hearing things will change and get better and they have yet to! So I'm leaving. I've been interviewing at some great places and think I'm close in two companies, so everyone keep their fingers crossed.

In order to start the change of the DP IT department, they've hired a new manager, she started today. The poor girl has no idea what she's in for... an ex-manager who decided he wants to program (meanwhile couldn't program his way out of a paper bag.) a programmer who shows up when he feels like it (which isn't often!) and a third programmer who does whatever he wants instead of the priorities. I only hope she can bring some order and authority (the one thing they never gave me) to the department so things can get done. Her biggest problem will be senior management's expectations of why they can't have the world when they want it. I don't envy her at all, I'm just hoping I won't be here to see what happens, and it will be sad, as I love this place but if I'm really going to have a career - i have to take the next step, not wait for it to come to me.

OK that's my babbling for today. Going out tonight with my gay BF Kev so i know I'm in for a great night!
