Is There a Place to List a “Baby Delay” in Microsoft Project?

For those of you who have been following the development of our new Maintenance Checkup Home Edition Version 2, you might know that the lead developer on the project, Adam McKee, has been expecting his first daughter any day now.

I just received a phone call that the new database structure for the project might be a couple days late because his 6 pound 2 ounce daughter was just born in Omaha.

Congratulations Adam and Bobbie! Thankfully, Bobbie had the good sense to shut down Adam’s name choice of Optimus Prime for the much more reasonable “Lillian Rose.” We love you Adam, but Optimus?!?!

So for those of you waiting with baited breath (and you know who you are ) for the next big Beta tester update, you might want to find something else to do this weekend, as the update will be delayed until mid week next week. Adam’s got some other structures and systems to figure out in the meantime 😉

    *Bowls over laughing*

    Okay, seriously though, I really doubt Adam was serious. One of the big running gags on the internet is that the new generation of Nerdy parents (like… say… people that work on databases and code things) insist on naming their first born Optimus Prime.

    He might have been trying to get out of having to come up with an actual name for his kid as well.

    Then again… it is a pretty cool name. Just not for a kid. Can you imagine the beatings from peers?

    At least he didn’t want to name the baby StarScream. Oi Vey!

    Ok now I understand. Give him 2 weeks off Thor and he’ll be ready for MCHE improvements.

    I posted in your forums a message on MChE so please disregard that message.

    it’s spelled Bobbie, and Optimus Prime was the coolest transformer ever!
    oh, and thanks for the support, it’s really appreciated.

    Name spelling corrected. She can kick my butt later 😉

    You gotta love Wikipedia. That has to be the LONGEST bio on Optimius Prime I have ever seen. Who has time to write stuff like that?

    That is wonderful news! Hang in there Adam. The first couple months is the toughest!
