The previous developer’s discussion here:
Mager, Ben, and Tyler on the roof of SOMA, but they won’t disclose where. Mager is very secretive.
Jim Took Nyquil instead of Dayquil, so he felt like it was his day off.
I need to tackle the laundry monster in the back of camera. Wednesdays is laundry day, but now it’s forever on the internet, and will forever haunt me
