End of an era...

So today, Quicksilver Technologies effectively ceased to be. They are theoretically still in business, but half of the company - including my entire team - got laid off. They didn't even have the money to give us any severance pay, besides $2 for bus fare home. Though we'd been getting some vibes all week, they concealed this from the employees until the last moment.

I am a little worried financially since I just got a car, but I'm not as worried as I could be; I can probably go back to the video game company I used to work for, if worst comes to worst, and there are other companies who were interested and have been trying to hire me...but I'm still a little sad. The Silversmiths were one of the best teams I ever worked with; we were productive, we got along, we all had our own strengths and weaknesses which wove together into a unit which was greater than the sum of its parts.
