A quick prayer to the gods of the information super-highway.Yeah, hi there, remember me? Name’s Brian Garside. Some call me B-Roqq, others call me Darkside, this is a quick little shout out to whatever Deus Ex Machinae there are out there.
See the post below me? See how it’s more than a month old? That ain’t right. You gotta help me out here. See this site was supposed to launch two weeks ago. I’m supposed to be on vacation right now (why do I suddenly sound like Dante Hicks from Clerks? “But I’m not even supposed to BEEEEE here today.”?), that ain’t happening. My back up vacation week was next week…that ain’t happening either. My final choice for $1,000.00 is the following week, that may also not be happening, so that sucks balls.
I’ve missed the entire summer, and I’ll never get it back. The month of August? Totally gone since I’ve worked 3 out of 4 weekends. I’ve worked over 100 hours of overtime since the middle of July, and I know I’ll never get that back.
So if you could just help me out and let us launch bug free by the end of the day today, I’d be happy. It would really improve my mood, and let me maybe catch my breath. All I want is to be able to play around with HeadsDown, maybe give this site a quick make-over, read a book, make dinner for my wife, and play video games…that’s not askin’ too much is it? Maybe I could catch a couple of movies too! I know that’s askin’ a lot, but it would be fun.
Also, the powers that be think we’re going to be ready to go into full production mode the first week of September, yeah, the same week that we’ll still be in the middle of trying to get some much needed vacation into. Just make them see that it’s not reasonable to get an already burnt out team into new development. Have them let us re-charge our batteries, it would be nice if they encouraged us to re-charge, but I’m not expecting miracles here (otherwise I’d ask that they not put all their eggs in the Fantasy Sports basket).
Help a brother out would ya?
