Having disclosed this publicly I now realize that I am costing myself the opportunity to position myself as a consultant ;). Well, shucks.
The one time my friend Gene and I semi-seriously worked on designing a game we ended up in a very similar place (I have printouts of these in a box under my desk), now working in that industry it is I guess heartening to know that two 22 year old complete newcomers to the field can arrive at the state of the art design organization system a priori

Refrigerator died 🙃; freezer still works, but the fans that move the cold air up to the fridge gave out. Bought an LG, which consumer reports liked slightly better than the Whirlpool, but both seemed like good buys.
Two weeks minimum for delivery, so it's fortuitous we decided not to get rid of this little dorm fridge from Heather's old studio last month :).
this race rules!
Looking at energy efficiency in new refrigerators, and two things jump out to me:
1. Canada's EnerGuide label disagrees with the US's EnergyGuide label, usually every time, and usually estimates about 10% lower usage. Weird. I can't find out why that would be.
2. Our ten-year old Samsung's label indicates that it is considerably more efficient than just about anything on the market today (470kwh vs 600ish for new models). Did the testing standards change, or are we worse at making these now?
