What's the mood like in the office?
Do you play any games during breaks? Are you eating pizza? If not pizza, what are you eating?

That's all the questions I had.

I suspect we'll get that update when they fix it.

What an honour would it be to develop Factorio! Unfortunately, I know next to nothing about macOS and my developer days are yet to come, after a few more years of university...

Failing out loud payed of again.
Good work.

Fluid update may be touched after bug fixing wave as it will probably introduce new bugs.

The Mac dev community is small, and it's a good niche. The problem, of course, is you have to develop for Macs.

Worked fine for me. Not sure when they fixed it, or if it is intermittent or what.

I'm drinking Soylent and have a cat on my lap. But then I'm working remotely. The Firefox extension that prevents me from getting sucked into looking at Facebook helps.

I really would have preferred some sort of mention of where the auto-updater fix is progress-wise. Is it being worked on? Is a fix predicted to be soon? Is it proving far more difficult than expected? Is the fix being put on hold until the game itself is more stable?

As someone who is unwilling to update manually, it would be very much appreciated to have some idea of whether the updater can be expected to be fixed soon (here "soon" meaning within 10-15 days or so) or whether Factorio is something I might want to forget about for now and come back to in May.
