Michael Vincent joins ticalc.org
Posted by Magnus on 17 January 2003, 17:35 GMT

The long wait is over, our new news editor has been hired. Our choice finally fell on Michael Vincent. You may know him from Radical Software or Detached Solutions.

Michael will focus on increasing the quantity and quality of news. To help him out, report news-worthy items to news@ticalc.org. Remember he needs to get familiar with our systems, so expect a bit slower responses in the beginning.

Michael - welcome to the team!

We know. We will. We need a picture and a bio to do that first, though. We figured the announcement would be good to make without delay.

Why do some people insist on spelling "coming" with 2 'm's?

A lot of people applied. Very few were qualified. I only know the names of ten of them. Very few of those ten were qualified.

I see absolutely no reason why anyone should be privy to the names of those who applied, unless those parties wish to come forth with a "WTF MAN U SUCK" post, in which case they suck.

i agree with you, it was a very good choise. Detached Solutions is, in my opinion, one of the best programming groups out there... all their apps are awesome and they really know how to make the best out of any project. keep up the good work. see their web page.

I've been playing with calcs for 5 years and actively programming ASM for 2.5

So yes I know who Nick D is.

Let's see... I've been programming calc for about 4 years now, but ASM only for 1.5. I also know who NickD is, but I don't clearly remember a time when NickD was around the message boards a lot.

I remember when you were around.
Back in the day when ticalc deleted off-topic, script-kiddie-esque posts.
Ah, those were the days...

I agree, Micheal always acts with great composure, so he should be a very great staff member. I am glad they made such a good choice.
