I mentioned (via email) to a couple of colleagues that I was playing around with CSS transition and gave them a link to an example. Silly stuff: fading, spinning, rotating around coordinates. To this I added the comment that maybe Senior Management would appreciate me if I worked like a contractor and gave the useless eye-candy instead of quality software. Maybe they'd appreciate me.

A reply came back from the one who's a bit of an insider on things: "They appreciate you ...they tried replacing you and you are still here."

Since this appreciation hasn't been manifest in their behavior (i.e., $$$, more paid vacations, etc.) I'm wondering if I should exploit the knowledge? Even if the "call my bluff" - I don't have to care as (at this point) the major parts of my income is sourced from five other external sources.
