Depends on whether you count reading through the code for a scene to figure out how to solve something as "getting help."  But also to be fair usually when I had to do that it was because I was playing the episodes at such an early stage that I didn't really have much of a choice since some stuff was still invisible too.

... well, it seems we aren't so much fans to finish the first three chapters without any walkthrough, hint, help or whatever ;D

in my case, the "a pinch of lively shaken salt" ingredient was more difficult for my little brain :)

That's what I do at work; delegate my work to all my underlings.

Why do you think I keep you guys around? ;)

Nice catch Stephen, I didn't even notice the double oops on the candle creator's name here.

Drat. But hey, at least I was closer to the name.

Katie, you know you couldn't do all the PR work by yourself; whether you want to admit it or not, you need us little underlings to do the heavy work. Management is about delegating the hard work to underlings and taking care of the "advanced" work yourself. Or so I like to think. I have no management position at any of my jobs so I'm not one to speak.

Katie, I knew you were teasing. I was playing along. I'm not *that* clueless, though I can be quite clueless.

That would explain it then. I'm just fresh out of high school really, and I totally bombed programming XD My testing right now is more focused on stability of the mac build I guess.
