One good thing about staying late last night was that a coworker was rummaging through a new-hire's hardware and found 512Mb of memory in a copy editor's PC. Talk about overkill. It was most likely a recycled developer's box.
"Those assets were reallocated as part of a midnight acquisition"
I'm sure the new copy editor will be fine with 128Mb (like everybody else). Now, I can properly load test our servers (now, a week after they went live).
