Um, no, Niall, not a common construct that I'm familiar with.  I suspect
that should have been "a large client of ours", which makes a bit more
sense, but still could be improved upon.

I can *nearly* forgive the marinating typo/auto correct, though
obviously I'd like it to apply to developers rather than the servers
that they work on. "a large client of us" though, urrgh, please somone
tell me this construct isn't common even in the former colonies. It
certainly isn't English and I don't really believe it is American
