Kim 3.0

Well, it's official, I no longer work at Intel. I dropped by today to turn in the laptop, pick up a few last effects, and turn in the ol' geek badge. I got home to find my last paycheck had arrived in the mail, so I guess that's that!

Next Monday I start at Microsoft in the Windows Gaming and Graphics Team, as Casual Games Strategy Manager. Or as I like to call it, "Kim 3.0". While next Monday is the official release of Kim 3.0, I'm actually pre-releasing 'unofficially' tommorrow, as I will be getting up early to go to the Casual Games Conference up in Seattle. I have to be out the door at 5am to get up there in time (yawn!)

I'll post something longer about the transition, why I made it, how I'm approaching it, etc, when I've got a bit more time, but tonight I have to get to bed early so I don't fall asleep and drive off the I-5!

So now that you are with MS, does that mean Kim 3.0 will be a little buggy and require a few service packs before things start to operate as originally intended?

Be sure you are dynamic module to avoid the security risks assoicated with static LIBs. Oh, and give yourself a rediculous redist where some parts aren't required by the license but are required to run previous installations of Kim 2.x.

...sorry... couldn't resist...

In all seriousness, I'm really happy for you man, congratulations once again!

Congratulations man! That sounds like a ton of fun. I hope your transition is a smooth one. Sorry I didn't get a chance to really talk with you at the conf Tuesday... we'll fix that soon. :)
