Just to give John Cleese something to do
Nothing of substance to add.
Isn't (wasn't) that 'For all intents and purposes' ? Or is that no longer a phrase ?
In several companies I've seen several developers go from awesomely capable, really nice people, to frustrated crabs with no time to do good work.
