I'd like to say it's the nature of the industry, to have crunch times like this, but honestly, if our own company had better processes and could set expectations for the clients better, it wouldn't be this bad. But that's not something that's going to happen - we've had this argument before and it's fallen on deaf ears.
Meanwhile, it doesn't mean I can't take the free 15 minutes I have during the day to do something fun.
In anticipation of a certain event at the end of May, I took my Tenth Doctor character in Guild Wars 2 and gave him a makeover. No crowbar in the game, so he's wielding a big spanner.
