Comment Re:Games are getting to be like TV shows (Score 1) 33 33

I played quite a bit of Ultima Online, and when I got tired of playing, I transitioned into running an emulated server and learning how to script. It helped cement my choice to get into game programming.

The game looks pretty exciting to me and I think I'd be interested in working on it (and noticed that you are hiring programmers), but I'm not super interested in moving to the high cost of living Washington. I've seen studios have opinions on both sides regarding remote work - what's Citadel's?

Comment I just bought a DS1512+ (Score 1) 227 227

I went a bit overboard in buying one, but I'm really liking it now. I bought a DS1512+ and five 3TB hard drives for about $1600. So far, it's been great. It was a breeze to setup, it's using a hybrid RAID format that's expandable, and I've got an FTP running on it now. Using iSCSI to be able to map drives on my computer for apps that don't support network locations (hey Steam) is awesome.

I'd highly recommend it.

I'm a professional programmer now.

This is *very* true. One of the things I really liked about my school was that every school computer had Visual Studio installed, and along with that, we got network-based storage. I was able to download tutorials online, store my projects on the network, and be able to work with them on *any* school computer. I'd routinely go to the school library for lunch and work on my hobby projects.

If money can't buy happiness, I guess you'll just have to rent it.

Working...
