Today we said goodbye to Igor - one our developers. He'll be greatly missed, as he was a sharp programmer, has an excellent sense of humor, and most importantly, knows the root passwords to all our databases.
I'll miss his Russian accent telling me: "No problem, 5 minutes," for any task ranging from adding an index to a column to rewriting an entire subsystem.
The two photos:
- Igor's near vacant desk. He has his trademark cigarettes out as usual - for easy access. It's quite possible that he survived mainly on nicotine.
- Igor shaking the now world famous Beamer (the one who's in the Caption Me photo).
Ahhh, comrade you'll be missed. And next time I find code of yours that swallows exceptions, I'm calling you.
