    I'll be unproductive for a while

    Hi folks,

    last week and today hit my wife and my family hard. These are really bad times right now. Today my wife called me that her daughter has lost her baby. :'( My wife and my stepdaughter are totally devastated. Adding to that my wife got really fooled at work by her boss and so might loose her job soon. > And that is very bad too, financial wise but also my wife is totally down and depressed. Because of todays news I will spend most of my off time taking care of the family I won't be able to do much (you could say nothing) the next days/Weeks.

    I'm very sorry for that. I don't know how long it will take and I hope that someone can take over my duties here till I'm back.

    I'm very sorry

    Michael

    ...

    hi michael (hartlef)... I am very sad to hear about such horrible news and wish you and your wife, stepdaughter best wishes and time for sadness for the next days and weeks... It's always not fair to loose a lovely family member...

    take time to care about closer to yourself and your wife and of course help as much you can to your stepdaughter ... "Kopf hoch und alle Zeit zum Trauern nehmen..."

    without family, wife, friends, live is no longer much value...

    I am with your family and wish, send good thoughts... don't make stress about your thinStudio task, we can manage it the game developing for a certain time when concentrating the job on several shoulders... you have done a great job until today ,

    thanks so far for your permanently input for the game development and see you here with a positively time period of healing some broken hearts...

    best regards and wishes to you, Lionheart (Frank)

    Hi Mike,

    I never understand why such a things happen to such a good people :'(

    I keep my fingers crossed, I am 100% sure you will manage it all.
    Family goes first, it was already said, but it is true.

    Take your time, I know it sounds like impossible, but everything will turn ok, you will see.
    I am sure.


    Take care,
    Petr

    P.S. Do not worry about thinStudio, you are perfect leader and you gave us the directions to go already, so we will keep your words in mind for the time you will be solving real life problems.

    I hope things turn into a more positive light for you. I hate when things happen unexpectedly.

    I will try not to cause anyone to stray off track. (No pun intended.)

    Best wishes... JD

    If I didn't judge the situation yesterday and today wrong, then I can go on with my off-time activities.

    Thank you all for your understanding.

    Michael
