So today at just before 5, the boss came by. Turns out that one of the lead developers, and one working on one of the two largest pieces of the project is "no longer working for the company". As of today.
Don't know whether he quit or got fired.
Hey, you think that this just might have an impact on the schedule?
Helmut, another contractor, jumped on the opportunity to apply for the open position. I understand it-- he has a family and a couple of small children, and the health insurance is good.
