(Blackwalt) I am <del>Batman</del>


By MauriceRevek - Posted on 18 October 2011

As some of you know (I know, I have been reading Aku too much), I am in the midst of changing jobs. And for this job, I had to interview a candidate developer who would be reporting to me. As the interview went on, the dialogue shifted towards designing interfaces. He indicated to me that he has experience and enjoys doing GUI design. Not an expert by any means, but stronger than the average programmer. He also mentioned that when he had to do something with photo shop that was beyond his abilities, he would call on his friend at the [Ottawa Newspaper] who works in the marketing department.

"Really?" I said. "You know people there? Do you know [Coxxorz]?".

"Why yes I do. As well as [Karloff], who likes to do a Sean Connery impression."

"What a small world. You must have heard them talk about Herd Of Cats then."

"I think so. I knew them especially when they called themselves the Golden Girls."

"That is so amusing. Wait. What?"

"Yes, they named themselves after characters from the Golden Girls."

"That is so going on the site."

Blackwalt: I am Batman Dorothy Zbornak
Coxxorz: I am Batman Blanche Devereaux
Stormblade: I am MarchmellowMan Rose Nylund
Karloff: I am expletive Sophia Petrillo

And I know their firewall admin will wonder why the hell 3 of their employees are spending all of their time on HoC...

The game was Quake.

The Golden Girls (we actually used the actor names: Betty White, Rue Mclanahan, Estelle Getty, Bea Arthur) were actually made up Karloff, Snuffy, and Myself, although there was another occasional member whose name escapes me at this moment.

Could that be our mystery developer?

Snuffy D however was.

I did play with them a few times but was never offensive enough to join the ranks.
