General Development "Since I left my job at Amazon I have spent a lot of time reading great source code. Having exhausted the insanely good idSoftware pool, the next thing to read was one of the greatest game of all time: Duke Nukem 3D and the engine powering it named 'Build'. It turned out to be a difficult experience: The engine delivered great value and ranked high in terms of speed, stability and memory consumption but my enthousiasm met a source code controversial in terms of organization, best practices and comments/documentation. This reading session taught me a lot about code legacy and what helps a software live long." Hail to the king, baby.

"You can quit this stupid double speak now.

Umm... What are you rambling about? If telling you directly I wasn't calling you out specifically doesn't soothe your butthurt then I guess your confidence really is shot and the shoe fits. Unfortunately lashing out won't solve either of those problems.
"

So Alfman calls you on your painfully-transparent attempts at underhanded insults, and what's your response? Deny it... and then immediately fall back into the same weaselly, passive-aggression that he called you on in the first place (all in the same paragraph, no less). If nothing else, I do have to admire that level of shameless audacity.
