I'm never going to be able to get into a soviet-era nuclear bunker.
Not fired, games continues to overperform. Sparing a thought for the anxious souls in film and TV production today. It's been, uh, a pretty hard year for big groups to make things. https://variety.com/2020/tv/news/warnermedia-begins-new-round-of-layoffs-amid-restructuring-1234826973/
Oh god, it's so bad it's good—this new Harmonix music game lets you get up to some absolute hijinks: https://twitter.com/ultrabrilliant/status/1326206284165754880
I do not appreciate, while I am dealing with panic attacks like this, emails from MegaCorp CEOs with subjects like "Tough news to share" about mass layoffs.

#fridaycheckin What a week, eh?
End of year crunchtime here. Looking forward to a week at Thanksgiving and another week or so over the Christmas season. Had my first real test as a team lead—lots of little things combining into the perfect storm—but I think it's going OK. It was a real rough sprint for one of my people from a code quality perspective. There's a lot of reasons why that might be, though, so we'll see how he gets back to it Monday.
Here's to sleep and nice weather!
