If you want to see intense engineers, have them try to access the same Excel spreadsheet at the same time while the whole company waits, staring.

When playing the board game Battleship, some of us at Choice One have some “intense” strategies. As a Navy veteran, Craig Eley uses his nautical know-how to “always attack the corners first.” Nick Selhorst just spills his ships across the grid, letting them land where they may.
