Well, guys, you know they sacked TestMonkey. So our most inspired poster from the ranks of the testers is gone. And I'd read somewhere that 40% of the sackings were from the ranks of the techies. That in and of itself leaves a diminished tech workforce, and I imagine the morale of the survivors has suffered.

Besides which, you remember that the purge took place just a few days after a major system upgrade of some sort. That, of course, gives TMF a grace period before the effects of insufficient tech support become obvious.

I suppose there's still a budget for testing. But survival of the remaining techies may depend on their efficiency. So I would be really surprised to see any more than base level test postings. Unless we continue to keep this board alive, and maybe recruit some support for the survivors of the purge, I guess ZZZTest (internal testing) is more or less history.

Sigh.
