I was at work one afternoon when the sheriff came to the door and
announced they would be back on the following monday with chains and
padlocks and that we should remove any of our personal belongings.
There was a hasty auction of lab tools and furniture and who knows what
came of the rest of it. One of the software developers bought a system
for a song, but as far as I know, he was the only one who bothered.
Even though I had some of my own blood, sweat, and tears in the system,
I have little nostalgia for that one. It was a poorly run company that
deserved to die.
