Meanwhile, Marc has been assisting a client with a new non-Financial-Services-related-yet-somehow-still-regulatory-reporting web service (we love regulatory reporting); Dan has been updating our bespoke credit card processing software for some new industry changes aaaaaand working on a new Sharepoint-based DMS; whilst Ben and George have been applying liberal quantities of polish to... the Squirrel.
