StreetRoller pops down a camera and ad-libs a speech with more screen presence, gravitas, better delivery and timing, natural charisma, better enunciation, and a more commanding performance than literally anything Chris Roberts has ever managed to poo poo out, and obviously better than anything Sandi has ever done.

Off the cuff.

Chris, what is it like being shown that you're literally poo poo? That your best efforts in everything you attempt (except stealing and fraud) are blown away by regular guys not even trying?

What's it like, Sandi, that one guy in a wheelchair on YouTube bitching out your husband just put in a performance that, by itself, is better than all of your IMDB "achievements" combined?

I bet that non-criminals would feel bad about that. I bet Chris and Sandi don't.

daylight ssssaving time

Foundry 42 Ltd filed their accounts today. These are early, since they reduced the accounting period. They cover the six month period from 1 January 2017 to 30 June 2017.
https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/08703814/filing-history

There isn't too much of interest. Accountancy. Basically they no longer hold any cash reserves in the company, but things like bank balance and debtors (tax credit) don't hold much informative value since we're comparing June to December.

What is interesting is that the rumours of cutting back in staff numbers seem untrue. If anything they are increasing staff numbers in the UK exponentially. Foundry 42 Ltd employed an average of 221 people in 2016 which rose to an average of 284 people in the first six months of 2017. Wages in 2016 totalled some £9.8m but the first six months of 2017 totalled £6.05m. They have been fairly consistent with an average gross salary (inc ER's NI) of around £45k per employee.

There's a curious increase in "other creditors" that totals around £1.6m (up from £50k at December 2016). This is due for repayment within one year. It's not the other companies. Not really worth speculating what it is though.

It remains to be seen if they reduce the accounting period for the other UK companies, or if they extend them. Head says they should reduce and file a six months set. Heart says they will extend and file an eighteen month set. I really don't think there is a third "CIG option" to file a normal twelve month set of accounts...

To me the best part is peeling away Chris' layers of sycophants and forcing him to face at least one person who doesn't think he's a visionary, knows he's not qualified, and knows he's a fraud. People like Chris generally can't handle that, which is why he busies himself flying all over, making a nuisance of himself, and immediately getting rid of anyone who sees him for what he is. This will be a fun vacation for him - a staredown with a guy who knows he's a talentless oval office, instead of crowds of cultists chanting his name while he lurches around on stage waving and spitting.

I mean I assume he will offer a legal defense but he won't physically show up. Also if you sued him personally don't you have to sue him in his local jurisdiction not in your own? I'm not a lawyer but I thought that's how it works for small claims.

They can just have it thrown out if you sue him in your local jurisdiction and he doesn't live there or anything (I think).

So they are expanding the low-level grunts, that do the difficult work of trying to hack together something that appeases CRobblers' vision, while I get the sense they still have 70 and growing openings for little things like department leads.

Am I right in assuming this basically points to them having reached pretty critical levels of brain drain, while trying to compensate for it by hiring an army of fresh-out-of-school employees to try and brute-force things like programming that is bound to only get worse as time goes on? Because if so, bring on 4.0 at 1 FPS baby!

You still have to have a non-frivolous case backed by evidence before a judge will give a default judgement (and maybe even before it gets put on the docket?).

A kerbillion dollar case is outside small claims jurisdiction anyway.

For the record though, their mean number of employees were:

Next 12 months to December 2015 : 132
Next 12 months to December 2016 : 221
