Wait a minute... the Veep of Engineering, with whom I
interviewed for this job (lo, these many years ago...)
played with me. Fortunately, I caught on and played
right back. I think it was when he very straightforwardly
mentioned the 90 hour weeks and I just nodded with a
"yes, of course" straight face, that he finally cracked
a smile. Evil sense of humor on that man. Damn good
writer, too, but not enough hours in the day for him
to do that AND be Veep, so he hired me.

He doesn't work here anymore. I don't *think* it was
hiring me that did him in. . .

We're now back to the same number of people that we
had when I hired on in '98, but we now have a 700-person
appendage that we're still figuring out what to do with...
