David Critch Joins ticalc.org Staff
Posted by Eric on 23 September 2000, 04:08 GMT

We're pleased to announce a new member here at ticalc.org. David Critch will be working concurrently on the File Archives with our regular file archiver, Steve Whittaker. With two file archivers the archives should be updated much more frequently, so we're happy to welcome Dave to the staff.

No. Nick Disabato also worked on the file archives before he resigned as news editor and file archiver. He is still on staff, but now only manages the screenshot staff.

For every 100 files added to the archives I did about one.

I didn't do much on archives. It was all Steve after Phil quit.

I didn't (and still haven't) quit.
I just stopped doing archives, much the same as Nick stopped doing news.
Archives is an amazingly huge amount of work, and it's quite tedious. You get really burned out after doing it for enough time.

And you have to set aside a certain amount of time where you can't be disturbed, which is hard for almost everyone. Steve seems to do it pretty well though.

I have nothing but the utmost respect for the job Steve and David do; I know exactly how difficult it is, and they do it far better than I ever did.
And actually, I'm more accessible now than I was before, I just have less time to spend here (I do have other projects I've moved on to), and I am _far_ less needed here.
Some things you can only do for so long, unfortunately. I had a great time doing file archives, it taught me a lot. But I eventually had to decide that the hour or more it would take me per day was too much.

My post is gone :( So, I will make a new one! Hey phil, hah, you did a sweet job with the archives ... you actually did them rather timely while I was adding unprecedented amounts of math programs, haha, remember that (so was THAT my job on ticalc?) Maybe, now that you have a stable connection and email address...bah...why do file archives again. Well, I am out of here...too bad my only chapter with ticalc.org was full of hate and henrik. One day, one day, I will figure out what the heck I did on that staff and what my title was...and then...i will stop caring.

Awww, I wanted that job. Oh well, good luck for David though. Hey, are they looking for a third guy?
