I prefer virtual threads.
What's your least favorite versioning system?
I've only really used P4/VSS/SVN/Git. VSS wasn't great, but I remember more annoyance with P4.
Can I give a shoutout to worst save mechanism? Sonic Scenarist... Autosaves after every action, with no undo. There was a lot of copying to backup files going on.
What are your top 5 favorite comedy vids?
All of mine lol.
(Re-)Watching the videos to come up with this list is more AMVs than I've watched in years... so they're fairly old, sorry. Also some of them aren't necessarily "high-larious", but I like them because they're fun/rewatchable. And more than five because I can't count.

If you want to see other random videos I find amusing, I've added them 'cause I can:
What's the coolest project you've worked on?
The things I think others would think are cool:Raze's Hell
: Twisted ("monster" kills "cute things") FPS with a dose of Iraq War satire. (including the Iraqi Information Minister
) Unfortunately I didn't have a large role in this. It was for Xbox, but is 360-compatible. I really like the trailer
which is halfway between cool and cheesy.
Atari Smash: Unfortunately cancelled in beta, this was shaping up to be a spiffy Atari-themed Mario Party-style game. I worked on about 30 "microgames" for this based on Atari properties. (think Warioware-length)
The things I think are cool: Despite the difficulties I'm having, what I'm working on now.Showdown
: It's "just a card game", but it's the first real-time networked multiplayer game I've worked on so it's a learning experience. It's neat seeing it come together.Office Attacks
: Office-themed tower defence game. It was delayed due to Showdown (which was client work), but I wrote a SWF parser/renderer which should reduce the app size by over 100MB. (significant for mobile)
What's the dumbest coding mistake you'd ever admit to making?
When I was young and just starting out (VIC-20
/BASIC days), I thought that "REM" meant that the computer could understand the English words after it. If only...
Why does my phone always screw up editing posts and jump the cursor to a random point on the screen?
Because your phone hates you.
Sorry for the wait. I hope there are some videos here that people haven't seen.
