"I finally got a working copy of Civ4 on Saturday. Previous boxes had mixed up disks and refused to install."

The Play disc wouldn't work?

No, just an outright refusal to install by MartiniPhilosopher (2.00 / 0) #3 Mon Feb 20, 2006 at 07:12:31 AM EST
Which culminated in a "Catastrophic Error" event generated by the installation program upon putting the second disk in.

According to the official forums, the problem is because the dates and size of the .cab files are different and thus generating the error. My guess is that whoever was contracted to put the retail boxes together was lazy and used up all of their inventory instead of separating out the two different versions coming from the CD manufacturer.

We have customer's who don't recognize by georgeha (4.00 / 1) #2 Mon Feb 20, 2006 at 06:58:44 AM EST
Federal holidays, often because they're in strange, furrin lands like Canuckistan, UKia and Japan that have you to be assimilated into the Greater USian Prosperity Sphere.

So, until that happens, we work many Federal holidays.


Would over-time or better help to smooth it over? by MartiniPhilosopher (2.00 / 0) #5 Mon Feb 20, 2006 at 07:15:32 AM EST
'cause I wouldn't make it outright illegal to work on a Federal Holiday. Hospitals and whatnot should still be open and operating. But I could see my way to mandating a time-and-a-half or double-time for those who do have to work.

I get more work done on federal holidays by lm (4.00 / 1) #6 Mon Feb 20, 2006 at 07:42:21 AM EST
Most of our clients have the day off which means fewer incoming calls which results in fewer distractions from the large projects I ought to have finished by now.

There is no more degenerate kind of state than that in which the richest are supposed to be the best.
