On their side, EA has been bashed before for their "Crunch" and "Pre-Crunch"
policies.   Sometimes team members work in excess of 90 hours per week
(without overtime pay of course) for months at a time.


I imagine they are just glad to get it out the door at that point.


Can't much fault Andreas for going on vacation when he had the chance.

Geez, just stop trying to make us all feel good.  Not for nothing,
but when we release a new product, we don't release it and
abandon ship.

As a CTO now, I get less vacation than the 4 weeks I used to get 18
years ago, when I could only get one week in really anyway!  Well, that
is how technology works here in NY anyway... I suspect there are
a lot of other places just like it. I couldn't get 3 weeks if I died! ;-(

No offense, but bad vacation timing. Even worse manager for
allowing it.  They really are that screwed up aren't they?

Give us the source. we will fix it before he gets back. ;-)

Hm, if that's the case, then Andreas said he's on vacation until August 1st,
so we're going to have a fair wait until a new version. Would be nice if EA
gave us some more information.
