Thus spake Jeremy Elson: >> Am I to understand that you've written OLC for Circle 3.0? I mean, a >> fully functional OLC system? Oh PLEASE let it be true... And if it is, what >> then hell is taking Jeremy so long? Christ, think he's getting paid by >> the hour for doing this thing? > >No, I'm not getting paid by the hour. That's WHY it's taking so long. >Because when I have a job which pays $50/hour, and Circle which pays >nothing, then I choose to spend my time with the job. *gasp* What, you have a LIFE? How COULD you place such mundanities as earning a living, paying rent, bills, and buying food above your loyal public's demands for an OLC, a bug-free 3.0 release, continued technical support, and putting up with our whining? Huh? How COULD you? I'd better stop now, as I just shoved my tongue all the way THROUGH my cheek and I'm thinking that medical help may be in order. >> I'm sorry but after waiting nearly a year >> for 3.0 I'm a little impatient, and all I _really_ wanted was the OLC. If >> an OLC patch is available at the circle ftp site then the wait is over! >> That's it, I'm not gonna wait anymore. What's that file called? You know >> the official release isn't gonna be for a couple months... > >You're right, it's not going to be for a couple of months, and chances are >it won't be based on the OLC patch at the ftp site anyway since I've already >written most of my own OLC system. > >Wait or don't wait, but either way don't whine to me. Since when do I >owe YOU anything? You make it sound as if you're paying me to do work >for you. Hmmmm...I wonder if it would break the DIKU license if we were all to pitch in and pay Jeremy for a last great burst of energy in finishing Circle 3.0? Technically, we'd be paying for his services as a programmer modifying existing code and not for the code itself... How many people ARE there on this list? Figger 40 hours more work at $50/hour...$2000 / 40 of us is $50 per head. Anyone else in? --Jim, just as eager, but not nearly as demanding.
