For those who were "involuntarily idled": Did you have a inkling it was
coming, or were you completely unaware of the impending doom?

After getting caught completely off guard the first time, I've called
most of the layoffs after that one. Depending on how you count,
there have been 5 or 6 of them altogether.

I'm not sure what signs I look for, but I seem to have honed my
sense of how well a company is doing. A couple of times engineers
have come up to me afterwards and said, "I didn't want to believe
you; I wish you hadn't been right about the layoffs."
