From today's Gamespy newsletter:
Oh well, guess we can't get that job either
They left off the most important skill in being an employee at Blizzard:
The ability to not do any work but keep promising ETAs and then not meeting them for years, but all the while giving vague information "leaks" and "peeks" but never really committing to jack squat.
Presumably another network programmer will help meeting those ETAs (unless it's just replacing someone who left) L
I think Blizzards looking for a lot more then just programmers now...being that all three of their founders and vice president all decided to leave due to Vivendi's complete mismangment of the company....again the French prove socialism's virtues...

From Thursday's Gamespy newsletter:
Except for meeting options 1 and 4, I'd say they have about two million candidates. They live in America (in their mother's basement), post on forums a lot, and download boatloads of CG game character hentai--which is the sole thing keeping them from seeing this announcement.
Well, 3 and 6 are kinda important as well; just because you can post on a forum doesn't mean you have those two as well. And it depends on how much "experience" in 2 you need... there's a lot of tricks in Excel you can do that a lot of people don't know about aside from using it as a spreadsheet ala "fill in the cells".
You mean its not for spoofing sexually suggestive spreadsheets covering kinky business expenses? You mean those said sheets are not for slipping into the action item folder of one's boss to embarrass him/her at the next staff meeting?
Dang, this whole time I just thought it was a prank program.
Heck no, you can play Magic on it!
Seriously, ask BigBlue...
There should be a job where totally ripping into your superiors is something you get a paid bonus for. I think I'd be good at it. For once, a perfect career.
I'll ask Blizz if they condone cussing out the boss every time you hear/see him/her. Hopefully they say yes...then I'll apply.
The people at Computer Gaming World always seem to rip into each other and their editor... in a fun, friendly type of way but they do it
Yeah, taking pot shots in little text boxes is kinda neat...
But the next time I punch my boss--with an easily breakable coffee mug in it, which has scalding hot coffee in it--and get ceramic all inside his cheek and coffee all over his suit, I'd like to you know, get a paid bonus for it. And an actual pay bonus, not just money like in a severance package.
It would also be nice to earn vacation time for sending garbage packs full of butcher shop waste through his office window while he's meeting with his own superiors.
I mean, that kind of top performance should be the focus of the modern workplace.
