This is what I do all day...

On the Vampire Wars team at Zynga we have a dev chat wndow open on skype all day - a big group chat basically.

Yeah... this is a moment from that ;)

Monil Gandhi: Someone...anyone...please please for god's sake...give me some work
Irvin Szeto: clean my house

Monil Gandhi: okay...i rephrase it...give me some developers work :)
Gregory Wild-Smith: program my house to clean itself

Monil Gandh
i: well...i would do that for my house first
Gregory Wild-Smith: monil.cleanHouse(_FAST_)
Gregory Wild-Smith: monil.emptyTrash(_NOSPILLS_)

Scott Stokes: Why would you even have other flags for that function?
Scott Stokes: emptyTrash(_COFFE_GROUNDS_EVERYWHERE_)

Gregory Wild-Smith: monil.emptyTrash(_RECYCLE_)
Gregory Wild-Smith: that's why

Monil Gandhi: someday this will be true

Gregory Wild-Smith: someday you'll have a programmable interface Monil?
Gregory Wild-Smith: Oh man... you'll be screwed
Gregory Wild-Smith: monil.makeMeASandwich()

Monil Gandhi: u ll will be so used to robots that u will not be able to live widout them
Monil Gandhi: and then i ll take over the world :P
Gregory Wild-Smith: monil.giveControlOfWorldTo($user['gregoryws'])
Gregory Wild-Smith: BOOM! 

I suppose it's total geek humor, but I found it fun. Amazingly we DO actually get a lot of work done. ;)

Haha...yeah, I failed at it last year and I'm probly gonna fail at it again this year, but at least it gets me motivated to write!

Also, if you are gonna use the same account as last year, then we are already linked up on the WriMo site as buddies. :-)

how about they make the Vampire Wars game load faster? that spinning blood droplet icon is the bane of my VW existence. and if they could send me a few hundred Bile Spews, that would be swell. i haven't finished the collection yet and time is running short and my finger is sore from clicking thousands of times.

Oh m,an - I don't even have Bile Spew yet! It's the last one of the special halloween things I need to complete the set!

We're working on the speed thing. It's getting there - half the problem is that all our AJAX stuff has to go through Facebook - which makes it a lot slower..

Okay, crawling out from under the rock I've been living under for what seems like forever (we call it "working for a startup, have no life" as you well know)...

a) monil.makeMeASandwich() actually made me snork out loud and scare the dog. This is only amusing because it's nearly 2 a.m. and you'd think the dog would know by now that evil laughter is more of a muhuhahah! variety

b) you work at Zynga now? I'm supposed to know that, right? (No, I've been living under a rock, in startupland, as I said...)

I am indeed at Zynga - working on their Vampire Wars game. It's a lot of fun :D
