Well regardless, changing a git branch and building the changed files in a large C++ solution at my work usually means a coffee and Street Fighter break.

If I may ask, what are the specs of your boxes? I don't know if C compiles faster or slower than C++ (I'm guessing faster) but at my last job I compiled full Linux kernels (over 15 million lines of C) in barely 10 minutes on boxes with 24 logical cores (xeon; make -j 24) and 64GB ram. This process can take up to an hour or so on more modest hardware.

I think having proper specs definitely makes compilation go faster, especially since workstation computers are increasingly getting really monster.

Depends on the developer. I'm probably the worst example as in my case I'm running Windows 7 with Visual Studio 2012 in Virtualbox, with three cores available, 4.5 GB RAM and a 7200 RPM drive. The host OS is Linux Mint. A full rebuild will take almost 30 minutes, but the same guest OS can fully rebuild Java projects ten times in size, in around a minute.

Developers who have less restricted setups and SSDs can rebuild the C++ solution in around 10 minutes.

The Blog is not really used actively but you can follow him on FB facebook.com/michal.marcinkowski
Also, he is no longer really focusing on KAG now. All they do now is fixing minor bugs to keep the game up to date. (from what I know)

MM is doing a new game called : Transmigration Into Darkness Peering
official website

Doesn't look like a multiplayer game though..

Might be a wheelchair racing game, since he didn't say racing won't be there. :P

We've been showing the game together with MM, Geti, Trainchaser and Shadlington at the AMAZE Berlin event few weeks ago. People were interested in the game. As I've played it - I'd call it "alternative" game. It shows the difficulties of the handicapped man's life. It is an adventure/story/single player game.

I feel I should share this:

What ends up happening every now and then is MM will message me asking me to set up the DNS zonefile and vhost/web hosting for an extremely random sounding domain name he just bought, in this case it was intodarknesspeering.com. Sometimes he'll also ask me to set him up vanilla wordpress and give him the login info for an admin account. Other times it'll be a strangely named mercurial repo.

And then a while later I generally go back and see what he's put up and usually my reaction is "what the fuck is this shit?"

Being a sysadmin for THD is honestly very entertaining sometimes.

What? If you don't believe what I said you can see proof that I work on that stuff here and here among other places.

There was actually no sarcasm included. (Though I can see now that it sounds like that.)
I can really imagine such MM-situations.

And there's no need to tell me who you are. I know how much you're doing for THD and it's projects.  :)
