Don't beat up the poor sysadmin. It's all to easy for me to imagine the following conversation, in just about *every* games developer:

sysadmin: "Uh, excuse me, mr CEO, sir, but you really need to let me have some time with your laptop, because it needs several patches installed and a security review and a backup..."

megalomaniacal CEO: "Are you INSANE? I can't afford to be off-air for more than TEN SECONDS, because every email I get could be potentially worth MILLIONS OF DOLLARS if I reply fast enough! Besides, I'm going to be in twelve different cities over the next two weeks, and I need access to EVERYTHING while I'm there."

sysadmin: "um... but you didn't approve the expenditure for the new security..."

megalomaniacal CEO: "DAMNIT! I pay you good money so that I don't have to spend hundreds of dollars on expensive fancy firewalls and crap like that!! DO YOUR JOB, or by God you'll be answering level one helpdesk calls in a retirement village for the rest of your miserable existence!"

sysadmin: *cries*


*ahem* - or maybe that's just my vivid imagination.

I got all choked up yesterday reading the hunderds of messages of support for your mum (er... mom), and reading the tragic news today, I just had to sign up and offer my most sincere condolences for your loss.

May the road rise up to meet you, Blue - you can be sure MamaBlue was a fantastic person, if her son is anything to judge her by.
