Good old days where we use to laugh off such "coincidences" as Paranoia! Now this shit scares me for real7

PS: If your team doesn't have one such, either be one or change the team/company!5
An interesting article on silent meeting. I think this is extremely efficient. Thoughts?4
The error in database entry was negated by a bug in front-end code. Two mistakes cancelling out each other!
