Nicest Neighbor Ever.

So we really have the nicest neighbor ever.  He has been offering to let us use his tools, giving us some really good advice about the neighborhood, helping out Laura change oil, just, really anything he can.

I looked out from my bedroom this morning and he was outside smiling on his riding lawn mower mowing the grass that I have been procrastinating. (Apparently he asked Laura if he could earlier)

Aside from that, he also kicks ass because he has a gold grill, and drives a ice cream truck filled with sub woofers.

Bad People

This is going to be pretty general, and applies to allot of the negativity you see hanging around emerald.

The main thing that I wanted to clear up is that everyone on the emerald team is a separate person, with separate pasts.

We do different things aside from emerald.

Skills does the CDS stuff.
Fractured, Phox, and Skills do the ONYX Stuff.
I do the PAR stuff.

etc etc.

We come together to work on emerald, what other people do outside of emerald is frankly not my responsibility.  We are not each others mother.  Everyone in emerald dev is there because they contribute productive time, and that is what matters.

So if you like to make blanket assumptions like “I think [Person X] is bad, therefore emerald is bad!”;  you really should consider that everyone is in emerald dev who is not “bad”  has the responsibility to ensure that emerald is not “bad” either.

If anyone in dev went crazy and tried to add something to emerald that was harmful, there would be a serious whiplash, it would be exposed immediately by the other devs.
