Well, the sign on my office window says, "Not one shred of evidence
supports the notion that life is serious." Does that help????? ;-)

I have toys in my office -- mostly fidgit things -- and cartoons on
my wall and pass around humorous e-mail whenever I can.

We've all pitched in $10 or so and picked up a ping pong table for
the training room. Late afternoons, particularly on Friday, I hang
out with the programmers and play ping pong. Familiarity doesn't
breed contempt, Buck. It builds friendship and trust and a good,
solid working relationship.
