This really is just an observation!
I just have this reoccuring image of a man tearing his hair out at all the thousands of requests each minute of the day. I'm also certain that there is a team of people all working away to make the adjustments that Oleg "Okay's" within the game........I wonder if many of them get the "monday morning" syndrome. It's great to be dedicated is'nt it??

It ain't easy working on games. It ain't all play working on games.

I am sure Oleg is not a baby and can take care of himself.

Requests are just requests, they aren't tasks, you take some, you leave some.

It is like a lot of other jobs and especially those dealing with code. I really mean it, have worked back to back 16-20 hour days, 7 days a week for months designing and writing to moving and intangible goals. And I look at many other jobs, it is the same. My customers didn't make as many requests but theirs really were demands. Management is much the same.

The big difference one to the next is how wll you are paid and if you can get necessary time off before you end up with health problems. Almost no amount of money is worth those.

Whatever you think of Oleg - I would say with absolute certainty that the only thing that would keep me in the flightsim business is love of flight. True, absolute stark raving bollocks mad love of WW2 aviation.

You could not possibly pay me enough to put up with the kind of crap he takes from people around here.

Someone else can probably answer for sure [hopefully Oleg], but I seem to remember hearing that he did a lot of computer simulation work on modern fighter optics before moving into home-computer simulations.

This is why I think people should pay for their games - I do - they deserve it... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

"So when Diogenes perceived that he was greatly excited and quite keyed up in mind with expectancy, he toyed with him and pulled him about in the hope that somehow he might be moved from his pride and thirst for glory and be able to sober up a little. For he noticed that at one time he was delighted, and at another grieved at the same thing, and that his soul was as unsettled as the weather at the solstices when both rain and sunshine come from the very same source."

(Dio Chrysostom "Discourse" 4.77-78)
