That'd be cool for people around here. I hope more companies start moving in the area.
Yeah it's interesting. And in complete opposite to Oxynarys theory in the thread about California being the future hub of development, the EA lawsuit and ramifications of, could in fact be the slippery slope of developement in actual fact moving out of California. It is after all, so goddam expensive to live and operate a business here.
that's interesting and scarry too. I'd prefer business to be on the westcoast but....it's nice to se ethe industry expand.
The more areas that prosper the faster the industry grows. Even if Cali loses EA employee's that can be recuped.

Yeah, the cost of living in Orlando is extremely cheap. Of course compared to the Bay area anything is cheap. It really could be a win win situation. Well, except for the poor sobs that work 80 hour weeks without overtime.

Hey, I was born in Orlando. I should move back there.

I would appreciate you give me enough respect to read what I said Daz versus making me your sock puppet. I said other people have (and it usually is from developers in California). My "theory" was >if< this was the case, it could help to keep outsourcing down.
WTF. It wasn't meant with any malice at all. What is up with people overreacting on this fricking board?! I get Slayerjerwhatsisface telling me to keep my 'shit to myself' and that Im talking 'out of my ass' just because Im in denial that HL2 looks as good as the U3 engine, and you spouting sock puppet at me?! Seriously.
hhhmmm, I see the vicous irony of me over-reacting to an over-reaction. /images/graemlins/smile.gif Oh well, crappy day at the office as they say.

Daz buddy....Sometimes your up and sometimes your down ..bound bound bound and rebound !!
There are some whinney little girls who need to lift up there skirt and slap there nuts and stop taking everything so personally around here . Don't get to miffed by it Daz I think it's pretty clear your feed back is appreciated around here /images/graemlins/smile.gif
Weather would be a whole lot better in Florida then the Bay area that's for sure .
It was actually a truly stunning day today weatherwise. And what was I doing? Cooped up inside all day dealing with idiots. Apart from SouL of course /images/graemlins/smile.gif Perhaps that's why Im on a short fuse. Anyway thanks for the boundin' !
I actually would not be heartbroken to leave California. I never really made a secret of that.

It isn't all too exciting over here... but if some jobs get moved over here, more game devs might get interested in the area.

Daz: Didnt you know that this is the Politically Correct board these days? Did you think it was the polycount board?!
03-15-2005, 03:53 PM
It's only politically correct if you are hypersensitive.
03-15-2005, 08:15 PM
...which a lot of people here are.
Great platform for exciting soap operas tho.
And i think i can beat your day Daz. WHile artists etc have 3 weeks off, i have to stay at work all week doing nothing (well, working on my orc), just in case a translation emergency comes up, (i've been doing all the translation for Pariah in german/spanish and italian) /images/graemlins/frown.gif
I'm deeply offended by StrangeFate's remarks and demand an apology.
Where's my ice cream...I need a good cry *sobs*

I'd never apologize for the truth, eat it!
I speak 5 languages. Italian has been quite a pain tho, since i've been speaking it forever, but never had to write it before.
