Particularly bad for ME !
Just about a month after the C=> announcement I was laid off by dec (digital equipment corporation - for those too young to remember).

That was their BIG collapse; 23% of the workforce certainly cut their "core competencies"
(as they said in the day) basically leaving only administrative people to push content free memos around.
The company was already being sold off in parts to Oracle, Intel, Quantum, etc and the June 94 milestone was the beginning of a 5 year plan to sell off the rest and recover what was possible for the stakeholders - of course in true dec tradition the 5 year plan took 6 years, Compaq getting the final bite that was too much for it to digest (-:

Yeah, it has been a fun/funny year for memories and anniversaries.
