comment How do managers know if a person is a good or a bad programmer?
gee thanks... if so that'd be my very first meme. In case it's not obvious to anyone, it derives from the 'herding cats' analogy.

comment Need advice: Staying techie or going the MBA way?
excellent... I will be an avid follower of your blog. What I hate about not being technical - watching the architects, programmers and testers leave a room you've had them in for the last 3 hours to hash out a problem knowing they will be having a ball in that way we all understand from making something work, while I DON'T. What I hate about being technical, standing back & watching some twat screw things up when I know I can do it better... ker-splat (that was my brain imploding)

comment Project Manager that wants to lock in time estimate with a signed contract
@bold Sorry. I know it was a loooong post, and it won't always be like that but this was a topic dear to my heart - enough to turn from long time listener to first time caller. I only bolded to mark out where to go for the counter strategy & skip the guff. Plus I used paragraphs the way the English language was designed before the internet even ;-) You can just scan the first line of each one to get a general jist.
