    Howdy. This is Bob. The Bob of Bob Blog. This blog contains about five minutes of my thoughts each day. A record. A history. And occasionally worth reading.

    Milestone #2. [censored] simultaneous players.

    This was the goal I wrote on my whiteboard this morning for today. I thought I might have been too optimistic. I know I'm too optimistic for later in the week. I don't know if it is worse to be disappointed because you didn't reach lofty goals or disappointed because you didn't set them high enough. I think the ultimate expectation is that we can sell out and need another production run and more servers. And...

    A really good first day. Our servers have been stable. The users seem to be getting in. The web stuff is mostly working now. The bug list hasn't shot through the roof. We still need to have focus in order to squash another wave or two of bugs. And then we can start working on the list of things for the first "feature patch." I wonder if we'll get a three day weekend?

    Here's a wack idea: put the QA team onto your programmer mailing list.
    Idea #2: make sure your game supports the color blind.
    Idea #3: promises to users a difficult to keep. document them and follow through. Absolutely NO talking out of your ***
