Brad Oliver Bids Westlake Farewell
12:30 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story
Brad Oliver, the programmer who recently announced that he would be leaving Westlake Interactive to join Aspyr Media has posted a farewell message on his blog. Today marks the last day of work under Westlake before moving onto Aspyr.
Here's what he had to say:
Today marks the last 24 hours I'll spend as a Westlake employee. It's been a great 5 year run, and I wouldn't trade it in for anything. That's partly why it's also a kind of depressing day - this marks the end of a pretty big and fun part of my career. Working with Glenda, Suellen, Ken, Phil, Mark, Duane, Cary, Jesse and of course John has been a blast.IMG would like to wish Brad good luck at his new job at Aspyr.
Westlake Interactive (add to watch list)
When I awake later this morning, I'll start packing up that old loaner Blue and White G3 that I've had since I started work on Alpha Centauri back in 1999. It's long since been retired from day-to-day use, but I did keep it around as a way to test games on MacOS 8.6. Now that duty will fall to my iBook.
Sometime after that, I'll do one last check-in for EverQuest. Once I commit that, then my time at Westlake will be at an end, and maintenance for all the non-Aspyr projects I did (EverQuest, Civ3, Centipede and Monopoly Casino) will fall into someone else's hands.
So anyway, thanks for all the memories guys, and best of luck to you and Westlake in the future. If I ever have a job and coworkers that were as much fun as at Westlake, I'll be one of the luckiest guys alive. (Yeah, that sounded a littleLou Gehrig-like. Sue me.)
