11/15/99: Top 10 Bug Reports we have NOT seen here at Pandemic

10. Bill Gates's head must not be used as a texture of dead pilots.

9. Game is compatible with SNES out of the box.

8. Walkers must not have 'ED-209' clearly emblazoned on them.

7. Cmdr. Shabayev should have a British accent and wear shorts

6. Gamma controls don't work when monitor is off.

5. Soundtrack should not feature singing purple dinosaur.

4. Love the wireframe graphics. Keep them!

3. Cannot command animals-- should be able to request a ride from them.

2. CD-ROM doesn't fly well through air. Make more aerodynamic.

1. Title at top of window should not be 'Minesweeper'

11/3/99: I saw this spoof on cnn: http://www.cnn.com/TECH/computing/9911/03/rare.glitch.project.idg/index.html The poll votes were interesting when I checked...

11/2/99: Some of the guys today were playing multiplayer on a map I hadn't seen. [As described earlier, dropping in new maps is a matter of simply dropping files in the the right place in the directory hierarchy, so I'm not involved in the process at all as maps are completed.] Lemme just say this: it wasn't on any world you've seen in a screenshot yet. :)
