I've been having a great time these last couple of days -- good work, good company, good food. I checked in code on my first day, which is a great indicator of agility (I mean on the company's part, though I like to push to see if it's possible because if it is it'll impress my new employer too). And the commute has been Just Fine, because I've mostly been doing it by bike. 16.1 miles, via Springs Rd in Bedford. Springs Road isn't smooth, or flat, or wide, or straight, and for the first mile or so of it there's a fair amount of traffic. But it's a pre-revolutionary road and it's absolutely gorgeous. I haven't bothered to check any of the other possible routes because this one is just so much fun to ride.
