Nick Bendler Joins ticalc.org Staff
Posted by Eric on 8 June 2001, 21:39 GMT

To bring a little closure to the issue that has been haunting us all for the past week or so, we're happy to report that Nick Bendler, henceforth known as nickb, has joined the staff here at ticalc.org. Yes, we realize that this may cause some confusion among the less-smart among you due to a certain other unnamed member, but I'm sure we'll all survive. Nick(B) has been working on our file archives for some time and will continue in this task. Congratulations and good luck, Nick!

good job nick, I may not know you but there is a old saying, "All For one and one for all." When you find out this meaning, you'll understand just remember to shoot for the moon, even if you miss it, you'll land among the stars.

Good job :)

Perhaps he'll last longer than I did .... he actually has a job title/descript.

Here's to the shortest ticalc.org staff members!

Nick, you shouldn't ignore me :( You make me sad.

Well I, for one, am relieved to have that problem resolved. I know it's been haunting me in my day-to-day activities, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who will be able to finally get some sleep.

I hope I can break my addiction to sleeping pills and be able to get some real sleep now that this issue has been dealt with properly.

I'm surprised 'twas such a problem....I guess the people with 56k modems waiting 5 minutes for the page to load could've been a problem :)

This is in one word great. It took some time for the queue to clear, but I hope we are now (together ;) able to keep the file queue clean. That would be the fourth best thing to happen to ticalc ever.

So, if Nick B is responsible for the actual updating, then what are the rest of the members of the File Archive Staff doing? (assuming there is a file archive staff...)
Note: On the CD approval form, it says "Did you copy any else's code?" That is confusing. Do they mean "Did you copy any other code?" or "Did you copy anyone else's code?"? I took it to mean the latter. You guys should fix that. Note: I just approved a program, so I know what it says.

I'd say something, but sometimes I find it best just not say anything at all :)

Actually, I suppose they're all excessively busy. I know at least nickd had that whole "college" thing going on, so, um, yeah.

Oh, that, and he, um, quit.

I quit as a direct result of my having college in the first place. I can say, with great honesty, that it saved what remains of my shoddy grades I was able to successfully salvage.

What about David? Did he quit, too? And why does the staff page still list NickD if he quit under file archive staff?

probably the same reason why it still says "Dimension TI" under the "Other Sites" menu on the frontpage.

Yeah, another staff member. Are all of the staff members still active, because if they are not, maybe they should be removed from the staff page ;-)

BTW, my Drugz3 Demo is #3 on the top dloads list, and it is TI-83+ BASIC TextBased. It RULES!

IIRC, NickD is still head of the screenshot staff, but he doesn't do anything nearly as visible as he used to (news editor (imho, NickD was the best news editor in ticalc.org history, but I've only seen the site much since it was redesigned to this appearance (i think around the time NickD started as news editor))). But he then started this strange thing called "college" and had to quit as news editor. One of the sadder days in ticalc.org history.

<covering-my-arse>I'm not trying to say that Eric isn't a good news editor or anything, I just remember NickD posting news much more frequently, even if he had to resort to fake news. Maybe there just aren't as many interesting developments in the calculator world, but it seemed NickD always either found something interesting, generated fake news during slow times, or at the very least posted updates to news articles as applicable.</covering-my-arse>

I hope I didn't have too much incoherent babbling in there:)
