Legal industry layoffs (Weil Gotshal, etc)

For those DL members in the legal industry, how are things in your neck of the woods? I work for a legal consulting firm and our clients are lot of the Am Law 100 firms. We're stable but running very 'lean' with minimal admin staff,etc. (We didn't even have a staff holiday lunch last December and we used to have the most amazing holiday events.) We have busy cycles with lot of overtime and lost weekends and then dead spells that make me so anxious. I get nervous every time I read news like this. Any thoughts for the future or do you think this news is a good thing to 'trim the bloat'?

"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)

Talking to DataLounge servers.
