A Matter of Some Length

I chatted with my co-worker, Doug, last night on the cellphone after work and he mentioned that our new boss wanted a document from me explaining why we do some things in our software the way that we do. Being an obliging type, I produced a five-page document that discussed what the competitive advantages of our product are and why doing things the way that we do supports them as opposed to the proposed alternative which would, well, not support them.

When Doug got into work this afternoon (he'd had an offsite meeting in the morning), he took one look at the document and said that it was supposed to be one page long. I would swear that he hadn't mentioned that when we spoke last night.

Ok, now there's a one-page version of the document to go with the five-page version that actually explains things. *sigh*
