Dude... How did you *not* know this before taking the job???

"What is your technology stack?" "What bug tracking?" "What build tools?" "What development environment?"

You need to interview them, just as much as they are interviewing you.

You have crafted your own hell. Either fix it, or leave while you can.

Dear Blizzard,

You are dropping support for LAN play with Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3, so high speed internet is required for multiplayer, and if your Battle.Net servers are down for any reason then I can't play multiplayer.

I have been waiting breathlessly for these games, so that I can have LAN parties again, now all that was for nothing. You have destroyed my hopes.

Because of your decision, I am canceling my World of Warcraft, and my wife's. And I will never purchase another Blizzard game as long as I live.

Sincerely,

In a consumer society there are inevitably two kinds of slaves: the prisoners of addiction and the prisoners of envy.

Working...
