Can't forget Brian Freeman, this guy works in the cube next to me and is not a game coder, but it is excellent coding knowledge that led me to the knowledge of how floating point numbers work across different processors.  Knowledge that was required to get the multiplayer running in sync.  Thanks Brian. 

One of my great buds from way back when we were both modding Quake II and came up with our first success story, King of the Server.  Jeff Curley has been on this adventure with me from the beginning and has put his roots down in San Diego working on the PlayStation.  We both dreamed of working in games and now we both are.  There's a few others from that Quake team that are now working in games, it was a great team.  Jeff schooled me in the different multiplayer techniques that might work for Scourge of War.  He brought it down to Romper Room level for me and got me to where I could see it happening in my code base.  Thanks a million Jeff! (mother to us KOTS guys :)
