Your last sentence and your second sentence imply that you think it's odd that your co-workers are asking IT related questions of IT personnel. Specifically "I do IT work" and "[they] chose unwisely based on ignorance and/or flawed reasoning just like my co-workers".

Whoever said this happens to anyone with technical knowledge, is 110% correct.

I wasn't implying anything... geez... I'm sorry I said anything at all at this point.

I pretty much get the whole, "You're a computer genius!" thing from my family, too. All I do is play games, surf boards related to said games, download some shows from time to time, and basically do the flow chart thing when I can't figure something out. Anything beyond that is basically the fruit of years of trial and error I couldn't even tell someone I know about until presented with the situation that calls upon that dusty knowledge. And when I can't figure something out? Holy ****, I'm the most useless, stupid person ever in their eyes. Of most recent note, my old man got mad he couldn't wifi his phone into my network despite me giving him the code. Not my fault, broski, and I'm not changing the security protocol for every device in the house to troubleshoot just to pander to your fleeting whim.

Anyway, XI having launch issues is pretty much par for the course. If anything, games back then should've been given more leniency for the unknown of the market. Games today STILL have launch issues with congestion, queues, heavy lag, instability, and so on. GW2's launch was so bad in this respect that their AH wasn't up for like 2 weeks and they're still taking it down periodically to fix ****. Anyone who played D3 at launch should be intimate with Error 33, too.

When I got home from my very much pure IT job, my room mate came to me all wibbly because the PC my office had donated to her had a virus. I've got a Malwarebytes scan running now, but I'm scratching my head over how the **** she managed to delete the recovery partition, and wondering if I have a valid XP OEM license any more in case I need it.

IT: This is the job that never ends.

Oh how I wish that worked here... /sigh

You think your place is bad?

Try creating a database-driven website from scratch that integrates real time geo-location technology coded by hand that allows for easy identification of customer-engineer compatibility issues on the fly. A website that utilises SMS integration techniques to ensure that the latest information can be relayed to any interested party wherever they are. A site that marries technologies such as PHP, Python, Ruby and Java with HTML5 and a host of JavaScript frameworks to create an interactive experience that maximises resources and enhances the customer experience, ensuring that no matter what browser or OS they are using or what platform, either PC or phone or tablet or whatever, the site operates at peak efficiency with no design flaws.

Try creating that and working round the clock to finish by the ludicrously unrealistic deadline only to show the whole thing to the ever-demanding client who moves the mouse around the homepage and watches a link change colour when he rolls over it, causing him to exclaim, 'I really like that bit'.

Try this, my friend, then you will know true job satisfaction.

I have enough trouble hammering together a database search in MeekroDB in my own project XD

Explaining to people that the game they're playing isn't Flash but actually entirely Javascript and is actually being saved and served directly in base64 from a MySQL database just seems flippant most of the time too.

"Ooooh! I love Flash games! Is this gonna be like Facebook?"

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Airships on fire off the shoulder of Bahamut. I watched Scapula Beams glitter in the dark near the Three Mage Gate...

More on topic, and I know someone else expressed this concern, but has Tanaka signing on elsewhere been confirmed by anything more... mainstream?

Be you "pro-Tanaka" or "anti-Tanaka", there are no winners in this topic. The Square part of Enix is just one less step from being a lost dinosaur of the past that is barely clinging on before extinction. Soon there will be no SquareEnix, only Enix. The golden era as they call it is gone now. Will Enix get fed up with the Final Fantasy franchise and can it? Doubtful. As long is it generates cash flow, they are fine with it, but somehow, deep down, I think the series just won't have the allure that it once had. I wonder if Dragon Quest is looking good in their eyes right about now...
