    Anybody ever ask Cox how his personal life is going?

    Is he married?

    Does he have children?

    How are they?

    Does his family have to sacrifice in order for him to continue this sim over the years?

    Is this sim an issue in that marriage?

    Maybe the questions are inappropriate?

    But I don't think the consideration towards him and his personal life are inappropriate.

    Sure, it isn't any of our business, but that isn't my point.

    My point is, Cox is a real man, dealing with real life in America, during a really tough time for all Americans.

    I think we need to consider his reality.

    For us, our lives are getting dragged through reality right now.

    And we use things like this sim to help us cope and give us a place of refuge and a respite.

    But for Cox, I can imagine that that may have once been the case, running and designing this sim was probably a respite for him too.

    Now, I can theorize, without make too grand an assumption, that this sim is more burden than refuge for Mr. Cox.

    I am not here to speak for your Sir, nor am I attempting to put words in your mouth Mr. Cox.

    I am just try to help shed some light on the elephant in the room

    Please understand and help me understand, if I am accurate or if I have missed the mark.

    Mr. Cox, I hope things are well with you.

    We know you care about the game and we haven't heard from you in a while.

    I hope your personal life is moving forward in positive direction.

    Keep the continuing.

    May the force be with you.

    Thanks for your concern, Ummberto. I'm doing fine and better than most.

    Kevin and I have been planning on moving the game away from an expensive data source for some time. The current revenue from the game doesn't come close to justifying the annual expense. When I wrote the OP, we thought we would be able to go one more year with the old data source, and I was going full speed ahead. But apparently the subscription to our old data set ran out and we have to migrate to new data sources before we can do simulations for 2023. The change in data source is going to require a major rework of the simulation engine, which I started working on several months ago. But now, I am going to need to complete that work now. I am quite busy at my real job including many nights and weekends, and jumping into a huge task at a time when my regular job is demanding hasn't been appealing. I will also admit that complaints about the game do take some wind out of my sail, as it would for anybody.

    With all of the above, I needed a break from the game.

    I plan to jump back into things this weekend. I will update the OP with the new task list and try to keep it updated.

    It's funny, but, when I was away from the game, I wanted to know, what happened that caused me
    To get so negative while I was part of it the first time.

    So I did go back into the previous posts that I had been a part of.

    I found that it all started off great, but you in particular, always had some evil shlt to say to me.

    And I got caught up in the back and forth, and joined your negativity.

    You weren't the only one of course.

    There were others, full of spit and vinegar.


    I realized, that those conversations, changed the entire experience of this sim for me

    So I decided back then, to return to the sim.

    Despite yours and others negativity, and enjoy the game for what Cox is able to provide for us.


    I don't know why you are the azzhole that you are online.

    Maybe, you have a lifetime warranty on shlt for brains.

    I don't know, and I really don't care.

    Maybe I would, if you weren't such a drill, but you are, at the moment, so I don't.

    And clearly, you aren't going anywhere soon, neither is all that vomit that comes
    through the keyboard from your fingertips.

    So I simply take the good with the bad.

    Nobody can make another man look at himself, but life does have a way.

    I hope you see yourself and make some changes that others can be grateful for.
