From the outset I want it made clear that I don't just run around calling every woman crazy, but full disclosure : I'll jokingly use the term lightly for people I've known and I don't mean it literally in most cases.

I was the only designer left. In addition : we had 2 programmers, 2 managers, 2 affiliate program heads, and another 2 guys whose roles I never quite figured out.
