We do this at work as well, as part of a Kanban system. Seems to work well.
To me, the game feels like City of Heroes 1.5: not a big change, really.
The costume choices for male characters seems much more expansive than those for female characters, unlike City of Heroes, which seems to have similar numbers of costumes for both sexes.
In City of Heroes, ranged attackers were usually balanced by having less defense/hitpoints. They could hit from afar, but depended on others for protection. In Champions Online, I've got a ranged character who is much better in a fight than an unarmed Martial Artist type. It's the equivalent of having Batman being outdone by Halo: it just isn't right.
"this poor implementation of Agile development is harmful to our velocity"
Just sprinkle with synergy and you'll be okay. But don't forget to execute!
"At a time when his peers are finishing 6th grade, this only child of a Taiwanese mother and an Israeli father is trying on a cap and gown preparing to graduate with a 4.0 from community college." The article continues with a quotation by the boy, hinting at his modesty, "I don't consider myself a genius because there are 6.5 billion people in this world and each one is smart in his or her own way and it is, after all, only community college."
Fixed that for him.
"Palm, Google, Microsoft, Nokia and Research in Motion, maker of the BlackBerry, are all at varying stages of developing and introducing their own iPhone-like devices."
So Apple, as a newcomer to the industry, is now making others in the same space play catch up to them. Real competition is a good thing. Definitely Palm, MS, Nokia and RIM had more than enough time and expertise to make a iPhone like device before Apple did, yet they didn't. So now they get to play catch up. I hope they do create real iPhone killers, because it then puts Apple on the spot to improve.
I picked this up at the book store, noticed nothing about Nethack, and decided it was one of those books in which the author just wanted to talk about old games he liked, history be damned. That's not a bad thing, but that's also not what the title would lead one to think.
". if they launch Endeavour to rescue Atlantis, and Endeavour suffers damage at launch?"
Then you are obviously in a Michael Bay movie, where logic and physics are thrown out the door. Mayhem, shakycam and explosions usually follow.
In those coloring book images, you can clearly see that the towers were rigged for demolition! See, I just drew in a team of CIA operatives with a TNT plunger! COVER UP! I call COVER UP!
I miss the Starfleet Command games: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Fleet_Command The first one was cool, but they kept dumbing the series down, so that by the last one, it was less a tactical simulator and more like a strategy action game.
Hmm, I should dig those up....
The new Xbox-360 2000MP will only allow you to run games that cost 2000 Microsoft Points or less!
Man, I miss people asking for VRML galleries and stores. The same way I miss getting kicked in the head repeatedly.
"If J.J. Abrams' reboot is successful (and the latest trailer suggests it will be!)..."
Yes, because trailers are always the best source for determining a film's success. In fact, why bother releasing the movie, since its success is assured?
"does Amazon joining the practice legitimize it?"
No, it was legitimate before Amazon joined in. I think you might mean "popularize" it, or something different.
Despite the company and browser not existing at the time, I can confidently say that Opera had all these features before Erwise. There will be naysayers, of course.
