When a team is considered big? 50+?

 

I got super impressed when I read that book w/ lots of post mortens (postmortems from gamedeveloper), and the team of the original age of empires was like 25 ppl if I remember correctly..Id expect it to be made by 70+ ¦D

I dont think theres such thing as "over ambitious". Being ambitious is always good, the problem is having a wrong estimation of amount of work needed (as being impossible or not worth in the end).

 

Take konjak as comparative, the iconoclasts is an AAA 2d platformer with as many or more content (quantity) and more quality (pro) than studios out there, and hes doing all alone. Its the most impressive lone indie game Im aware of.

 

It only needs to feel worthy to you.

I tell them that the antivirus ... is the thing that do most of the drag, and that you can turn it off,

I follow you on all points but telling one's mother to turn off their antivirus.

Unless, you have another antivirus installed, and you're suggesting to not run two in parallel.

 

Consider the amount of time the antivirus is running (comsuming processing and memory ) and the amount of time it actually protected the computer against something..antivirus sucks.. I run my antivirus once in a almost never and it never detects anything. So its just logical to keep it shuted down.

If youre not using the internet and are going to do something (ms office, whatever) why not shut it down..But theyr really not self confident enough and always keep it on ;D

once in a while, mom and sis complain constantly about their notebooks speed.

me:

take a notebook, open task manager, verify the amount of proccess running, verify what the hell are each of those. Based on that uninstall everything you can making sure theyr not using it. Open msconfig, unmark things that are unnecessary starting on boot(like java update, who the fucks need to update java "realtime", update it when something asks for, not saying it slows down your pc to have jschedup or something, but really, how dare they do that to ppl, it goes unnoticed till you have a million of those shit running all the time)

And than, computer is magically faster, Im the computer magician ( also,  cleaned the disk and runned the defrag too, although win7 defrag is always 0%, Im not sure if it impacts anything).

I tell them that the antivirus (ms security essentials) is the thing that do most of the drag, and that you can turn it off, just be extra careful and dont do anything stupid while its off, but they dont...

 

Said that it does feel like windows gets old and tired with time, it never runs like a brand new one..why? ppl say its a clogged register, others dont say anything, and thus the myth persist.

maybe it needs a 90% free hdd to keep in shape... due really crap disk management? Maybe I should start using different partitions for window and user files like lots of ppl do (does it really change anything?)
