Re: exaggerated staff numbers

Apparently Borland* pulled a couple of stunts like that in their early days.

* Remember them? BTW, Philippe Borland was all set to work for HP, but couldn't because he couldn't get a green card/visum. So instead of becoming an employee he became an entrepreneur and started his own company; for some reason that wasn't a problem under US immigration laws. Yes, this was some time ago.
