Jason Leighton likes to kill time by complaining about the horrid Michigan weather cycles. When it is actually nice outside, he complains anyway. To hear his weather woes, or if you just want to talk about game programming, write to [email protected]. Your e-mail is important to him, but may be monitored for quality assurance purposes.
When Craig Derrick isn’t off buying DVDs, he’s often writing to Jason Leighton about his weather woes and trying to convince him that all he really needs to do is to stop programming and go outside. If you need a motivational speaker or if you have a problem and no one else can help, write to [email protected].
