just to screw things up:

quality is what? bug-freeness? beauty of the UI? optimality of inner loops? ....
quantity is? lines of code, number of modules?, depth of documentation? ....
even time: 10 hours of about-as-good-as-a-junior code, or 5 hours of expert-level code? ...

what about:
- number of problems solved?
- amount of [other peoples] bugs fixed (or found before release they happened)?
- thoroughness of testing?
- best at facing the customer?
- the one that bought most of the coffees and danishes?
- the one who oiled the squeaky wheels on the chairs?

... the one that cleaned up the most sh*t or made the least amount of it?

some things can't be quantified, and even those that can are rarely comparable.

anyway (from the comic books) we know that true hero's shun recognition,
so best leave them alone otherwise they may become uncomfortable and fly off forever.
after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
