nasty round of beancounting-motivated layoffs at work this morning.

4 gone from my own team. 2 of them were the only two with more seniority than me, and the other two were high-priced professionals, so this was clearly aimed at making us look better for a buy-out.

But it's longer-term crippling for our technical expertise.

Other teams being blasted through as well. The only group we haven't heard from yet is actual R&D.
