I've made a short documentary on Chainsaw Monday (available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gmyc6rPN04), the Major Layoffs at Sierra On-Line which happened 20 years ago, on February 22nd, 1999 in Oakhurst, CA and ultimately destroyed the company, albeit slowly and needing another set of layoffs in 2004 to finish off the job! Anyway, its good to remember Sierra... And, its good to know why you shouldn't let somebody else buy out your company, especially if they're fraudulently fiddling with the business statements! :geek:

That's a good assessment of history I wasn't even aware of, and good advice. It's always useful to see why favorite pieces of the past waver today. I got started with the old Sierra games very late (sometime after 2004 for sure) and I still have lots of catching up to do.

Thanks for sharing! :)
