I'm a tech writer, and years ago, on a project, I had a dialog box in a project that had a bunch of tabs. In the help, I put screenshots of each tab. If you were looking at the help for tab "A" and clicked on tab "B," "C," D," etc. in the project, the help for that page would come up, and the screenshots were aligned with one another. Anyway, if you clicked the "Help" button in the screenshot on one and only one of the tabs (in the help, mind you), we jumped to a new page with a picture of the entire doc team and our names. The head of the doc team knew - he was even in the picture - but I don't think anyone else in management knew. There was one SE who knew, and she used to demonstrate it for easily-amused customers.

Now who else will admit to their Easter Eggs?

I do wish them all well- even the ones who don't like my country. Even those who are "villains."

John Donne, Meditations XVII:

No man is an Iland, intire of it selfe; every man is a peece of the Continent, a part of the maine; if a Clod bee washed away by the Sea, Europe is the lesse, as well as if a Promontorie were, as well as if a Mannor of thy friends or of thine owne were; any mans death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankinde; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.

I don't have to like what they do to wish them good health.
