Thanks for the work on the game and thanks for describing your methods. I appreciate the work you put in to making the game a success. Especially as you did it for free!
You're welcome. I'm not saying I was doing it for free. My name appears on a credits page for the first time in about 8 years and they sent me a complimentary copy of the book, but there was no monetary compensation, which is why I said they weren't paying me for it.
Fair enough; I guess tenacy beats science sometimes (time to market, sanity preservation, ...). No offense intended, in any case; I hope that is assumed.
None taken. You were obviously led astray by Alex's earlier misstatement that I have a Master's in math. My MS is in Physics. The difference isn't always clear to everyone, but there are plenty of jokes about how to tell the difference between us. My favorite involves a room with a bucket of sand on a table and fire in a wastepaper basket. Seeing the situation, a physicist will grab the bucket, carry it to the basket, and pour the sand over it, extinguishing the flames. A mathematician will grab the bucket and put it in the corner of the room nearest the door, thus reducing it to a problem that he has already solved.
