But it's true. That's how important software is being released. Release it in the night then make a decision whether stay with it or rollback before the traffic rises.If stay then either fix minor bugs (if any) or just observe the environmemt, ask all the other systems if they observe something strange etc. It takes time and you may do it only doing working hours unless agreed before.Turbofant wrote:Sounds very much like the Unexpected hanging paradoxPunkSkeleton wrote:4. Since it's not released today then it must be released tomorrow (Wednesday) because Friday is weekend and Thursday is almost Friday so it is almost weekend... At least that's how we do it in telecom releases .
Now when a bug is discovered on weekend then numerous people get a call and get angry at you. You don't want that. You'd also didn't want to be called on weekend.
In case of Factorio those other systems are players and they want it playable on weekend and on evenings. So release in the morning (not that many people playing then), fix critical bugs before evening (local peak) and have next 2 days to fix those really important but not critical before weekend when most people have time to play.
