when I think of the past, the twitches come back

The Daily WTF - MAKEing Fools' GOLD:

"Paul's company develops financial software that's used by major stock markets. In his brief tenure, Paul was witness to millions of dollars in loss as a direct result of their software. "

I am proud to claim Paul as a friend and former coworker. He was one of the lights in an otherwise Kafkaesque experience. I'm pleased to see in the comments shoutouts from other former coworkers, one of whom I'm guessing was Eric.

I still talk to folks who work there. They are a working hard against a very discouraging culture, and I've heard recent reports of progress.

That said, I still tell stories about what went down there.
It's the only place I've worked at where multiple people put holes in the walls in anger without getting let go.
