Travis Retires from ticalc.org Staff
Posted by Travis on 1 April 2012, 10:25 GMT

Some of you have probably noticed the gradual decrease in the frequency of new file updates over the past several months and the rapid increase of pending files. Indeed, as I write this, the queue has already reached several hundred files. As long as I've tried to ignore it, I guess it's time to finally face reality: I just don't seem to have the motivation and passion I once did when I first joined ticalc.org. Regretfully, I guess it's time to move on.

I'd like to thank everyone on the staff and in the community for making it such a great place and keeping it alive for so many years. It has been a pleasure and a privilege taking part in it. These last 3.4 years have been a blast.

I thought so too.... but aren't the fake posts normally outlined in red? Or only after April 1st?

Wow, that's a name i haven't heard in a while. At first i thought the April Fool's joke was that you were still around (and on top of that, still coding).

Anyway, we all know you'll still be with us for another few, Travis! And 300 files? When was the last time the queue reached 300? Haha.

Yeah, this got me until I reached "the queue has already reached several hundred files"; then I got it. I think about 2008 was the last time the queue grew that large.

I'll just continue to reject anything you upload out of hand, of course.

I'd expect nothing else from you, my esteemed colleague.

Hey, you're a face I haven't seen in a while, either. :-D Yep, I'm still here and still feel like I'm only getting started!

Wow, the files just keep piling up today. I hope Nikky will be able to keep up (or reject them all, as the case may be)…

Great, thanks. I was getting worried because the server disk was getting really full.

For a really good April Fool, you should have brought back Bryan Rabeler!

Ooh, that's a creative idea! Though I expect there are likely very few people still active today who even know who he was...

Could have said that Bill Nagel had released Penguins 2: Puffy's Revenge! :P

Oh wow, how many people are approving the file lists?
One person shouldn't have to do it alone, there should be a few people there so it's not too stressful...
Anyway, good luck Travis with what you do.

As a sidenote, do you notice that no new news has been posted in almost two months?

I know of a few items of interest that various people have submitted, but all the editors are too busy with life, school, and work. :)

Hopefully they'll be less busy when now that there's summer! at least for those in the Northern Hemisphere. :)

That makes sense, but the TI community is basically dead during the summer.
