Morgan Carey posted this 6 3,716 Views

Update: The sales team leads say our sale on hours is too complicated (and because it's their nature to want to sell, they are pushing for even better deals for customers).  How they got me to say yes to this, I have NO IDEA - but here you go!  Design time: It turns out that because of our recent awesomeness in hiring, we have ZERO queue in design - so until further notice, I am going to authorize 20% off ALL design hours.  Programming: We're down to 2 week queue SO AWES...
