It is with great sadness that I found out that Judith Lucero passed away.
Judith was the lead tester on Monkey Island, Monkey Island 2 as well as a vast number of other Lucasfilm games.
She was the one who taught me the importance of testers and how they are a critical gear in the machinery that makes up making a game. Testers aren't just unit tests in human form. They have a unique perspective on the game and poke not only at the bugs but also the design and the thought process of playing a game.
It's a lesson I have never forgot and never will and I owe most of that to Judith.
Here is a email Judith and MI2 testers sent me. It goes on for 5 pages. Some of the suggestions were implemented.
"D" bugs were design bugs.
If Apple really cared about iOS privacy they would give the user to ability to block any app from reaching the internet. A lot of the iOS apps I used have no need to ping the internet but they all do to gather metrics and do who-knows-what.
I use Little Snitch on the Mac and everything f**king program tries to connect to the internet. I block them all and only a handful fail so, yeah, they don't need to.
If Apple really cared about my privacy they would do this.
