  • Biography
    I've been in the industry for 7 years as an IT Manager and I've been at Double Fine since May of 2009. I grew up in WV and then moved to San Francisco in the fall of 2005 - I fell in love with the area and the city and all the tech! I'm an amateur musician playing the open mic scene here in SF and I host an open mic at The Creamery here in SoMa most every Wednesday from 7-9PM.

    You captured Raz perfectly. If only there was a sound loop of his laugh...

    Ha, you are most welcome! I figured you needed a special place; a place closer to our, err; okay, I didn't put the file it in a proper folder but that was quick and easy. You are amazing, sir and I thank you immensely! An honor and a privilege! Brent
  3. Noted, however I'm not so sure about his sanity
  4. Thanks for doing the research - I think I knew that already but you did save me the trouble of looking it up. We'll have a solution in place soon to ease the reporting of bugs. There's a higher level conversation that needs to take place and not all of the ideas have been thoroughly explored. Thanks again, Hot! Brent
  5. There's very little control over the avatars. Sorry. Maybe in the newer version there will be more control but for now we're stuck. As for a support forum: We've been talking about this and there are some idea floating around about it but everyone has been super busy and no decision has been made, but it is a good idea.
  6. Probably because they're running a newer version. A lot of the modules and plug-ins we use broke with a test upgrade so we have to rethink this - I'll talk to some folks and see if there's a way to fix it but we're really busy and it probably will get a grunt and a few mumbling remarks about this current version. Thanks again for pointing it out and just so you know - we want to fix everything, but time is an expensive commodity. I am adding it to our list of things to fix. Brent
  7. Hey Tim!

    Yes - I just confirmed this exclusively for you. Actually, I was going to the bathroom and our QA Manager was walking in so maybe more coincidental than anything but I did ask because you posted. The DLC guitars are in the game but only the solo play, not the multi-player beta. So I guess that means once the whole game is unlocked that you'll have them. Maybe someone else can elaborate on how and why they aren't available in the multi but I'm just the IT Manager and really can only describe the inner workings of servers so I'm not the best person to ask. Hope that helps!
  8. Hey Tim!

    We do have a tip jar... Just saying. ...where is it? http://www.doublefine.com/dfapay Bottom of the page there. Maybe you should become a Slacker Backer first though. Why, it's right here: http://www.doublefine.com/dfapay Just tip us enough to make a few more games - maybe not AAA level but you know, a lot.
  9. Because we're stuck on an older version and upgrading breaks a lot of stuff.. One day,
  10. Maybe if we had a different CMS. We'll check this out but we're hamstrung with our CMS and limited in a lot of ways. Nonetheless, don't stop pointing these things out as we do honestly try to rectify things that we can control.
  11. Tim's Excellent Juice Recipes?

    Oh, my bad. I thought when you said a juice diet you meant alcohol. I do remember a conversation about that and my drinking habits... No wonder I'm gaining weight and grey hairs in my beard.

  13. Hey Tim!

    I believe you're thinking of March 14. I... I'm speechless. NO that is not what I meant, but steak on Valentine's day would be awesome - maybe some lucky lady can buy me one.
  14. Hey Tim!

    I wish you were here right now, so I could hug you. It doesn't get much better than that. Boxes full of candy are better, but, just saying... How about steak instead? You can't beat a nice steak. I agree with that entirely. But do you give steak on Valentine's day?
