Messenger Icon

(no subject)

I must have botched another interview over the phone. CREE apparently didn't want to go further, but they didn't bother to tell me. Why they couldn't just bounce the email to me, I can't comprehend, and I know I botched the interview since they were looking for someone with a stronger technical background.

Or something. They don't tell me why they won't even talk to me face to face, they ask me questions about tech that I had no idea was involved, and then they don't even contact me when they're uninterested - keeping my ever more worthless hopes up for days.

This is going to be a bad day I think. I feel sick already.

Edit: So I'm not technically proficient enough... Well, I'm not sure how to fix that problem. I truly did everything I could at Rose to NEVER have that thrown at my face, and the one question on the interview that probably did it was on how to homogenize an eximer laser; I guess that was thier benchmark on how much I knew about optics.

Having stepped out of the gamer loop - can anyone tell me if there is any multiplayer game in the works that actually incorporates time dilation and such?

So far, we've seen some pretty amazing gimmicky games with single player time control, but that's pretty straightforward (albeit cleverness goes a looooong way performance-wise). I've a few ideas on how to set up a multiplayer game mechanic that will either allow low-speed relativistic time dilation or time reversal.

Implementing them would be a really *interesting* challenge, but certainly possible. Will I be scooped?
