Top Ten Signs the Engineering Team has been Working Too Hard:

10. That nice breeze around the office?  Marc's eyelid twitch.
 9. Seriously consider taking a cool refreshing swim in the flood-swollen Guadalupe
 8. What if I quit my job and became a hobo?î ìYeah, I could see that.
 7. More paranoid delusions about there really being a poison doughnut this time
 6. QA team's trigger fingers startin' to get twitchy around RC build 25
 5. Rookie lab staff complaining about staying late - at midnight
 4. Russell starts wearing his con costumes to work
 3. Vague mumblings about "not enough hardware to get the job done, and I don't mean computers"
 2. Executive ice run frequency at a fever pitch
