You know what would be funny - if we took bets as to what company this was
based on your write-up.

I have my ideas but don't want to poison the well - so to speak.

We have a winner. 8:04pm
Runner up @ 8:52pm, Both EST.

As soon as we can ascertain that neither was directly involved with the
company or the recruiter, we can award the book.

Thanks for those that played - and Joanne - while "one of the most
rockin'..." isn't exactly hyperbole in the technical sense - it was a bit
over the top. At least you didn't say the client walks on water and parts
red seas in their spare time. Only I do that.
