# work
[Panel 1]
[Jaakko]
Doom.

[Ginny]
What, again?

[Nils]
Anything I need to
do something about?

[Panel 2]
[Jaakko]
Apparently using
contractors is
too expensive.

[Ginny]
Oh dear.

[Nils]
Ag, there are only three
people who know the system well
enough to fix it. And they're
all in this room and working
for Ratel Consulting.

[Panel 3]
[Jaakko]
But they can spend even more to buy
in a whole new system from Microsoft.

[Ginny]
And Microsoft can buy
the bosses better
lunches than we can.

[Nils]
Even with you on side? No, that's
solving the wrong problem.

[Panel 4]
[Jaakko]
Yes, a bit of tactical food
poisoning should get the job done.

[Ginny]
I have some
very old meat...

[Nils]
That would be cruel. So we ALSO
drop the delay factor by about
thirty per cent, after we've stayed
late to work on it for a few weeks
(which was why we weren't at the
fatal lunch). Then our code
outperforms even the rigged demo.
