    Great interview, The Sandman. Nicely thought-out questions.

    My favorite part is Mike arriving at the airport in the UK, lol.

    EXCELLENT interview! As Lawrence said, nicely thought-out questions, and equally nicely thought-out answers.
    Very good, both of you. :)

    Or did he? Maybe he would have settled for anyone whose name contained a Mike and Sullivan, :p

    I'm glad you like the interview! The credit goes to Mike - there may be a bit of a knack to asking the questions but it's much, much harder to answer them, especially when you have many other things occupying your time. IMO, a good interview is when you get to see through someone else's eyes for a moment, and perhaps find out a couple of things about them that you didn't already know. That's mainly in the answers, not the questions.

    The questions were good. They were fun to answer.

    IIRC, the regex was /Mi(ke|chael)\s+Sullivan/ . I complained that it was lacking the ^ and $. Today, Kier suggested that he would've been just as happy picking up George Michael Sullivan instead. :)

    I expect Kier will have to join the queue considering where George Michael is these days :D

    Excellent interview.

    Being a developer myself I especially like the "There are disagreements, but usually they end up with something better than either of us would've created independently."

    Aaaaah. I reread the old interview with Kier and there it is:

    Wasn't that prophetic???

    Great stuff.
    It's always good to know something about people behind XF.

    Thanks for the interview, mate. :)
