Out of the Blue

As it turns out it took several guys with ladders and all over five hours to clean the windows in the BlueTower. I did some calculations to try and determine how long it would have taken MrsBlue and I to accomplish this on our own, and the answer turns out to be infinity, though I should probably double-check my math. But it really is remarkable to see what a difference it makes... I didn't really consider the windows dirty before, so seeing how much better they are is eye-opening.

So, this beta is for the people who got sacked and rehired when they said they would work for free on THE GAME? They truly deserve Alpha 3.0, then.

Guys! IT IS HAPPENING! I got a mail saying that THE GAME Alpha 3.0 has been released to some alien race (or mad investors?) called evocati. We all knew it would happen!!! Another huge, huge step forward to beta! Beta coming to the Evocati (and maybe to peons on Earth) in approximately 2027 - date could shift, though, I think the gaming god behind THE GAME has said that they will add RTS, MOBA, and Submarine Chess Karate to the game, so 2037 might be a better estimated date of delivery of the beta. Cheers!

I had to Google this, because I thought it was a reference to Elon Musk claiming we're all emulated on a computer, and you were making a joke claiming a new version is coming.

Yeah, cleaning all those windows yourself, especially the high ones, would have been a real pane.

Sorry, someone had to post it.

Don't worry, I won't be here all day.....

On that calculation, did you divide by zero?
