I see nobody else has mentioned this, so I suppose it falls to
me, since I noticed…
Thanks to the generosity of the owners of QNX, all of us staff
folk are going on holiday until January 2nd, starting at noon-ish
on Friday 22 December.
Now, people being what they are, there might well be one or two
people working from home, or trying to squash a bug that won’t
let them sleep, (or trying to get a patch up for the world… )
but don’t expect a full house at this end, OK?
Since I’m by no means The Voice Of QNX, I guess it’s OK to slip a
quick personal note onto the end of this message. It’s been
an… interesting year to watch the QUICS community as it navigated
its way onto QDN. I’ve been posting (and lurking more often than
not recently) into this community for almost 4 years now,
starting with Tech. Support, and now as part of Training
Services. I think the thing that makes me feel the best about us
as a group is the way that we’ve developed our own set of helpful
“elders” who seem to go out of their way to help folks out.
To some extent, it’s the job of those of us inside the building to
pitch in when and where we can. We don’t always get it right,
but we’re getting paid for it, so the effort is expected to some
degree. It’s the people outside, who do it without a paycheck,
who impress me the most. Mario, Mitch, Warren (“Mr.
Popcorn”…), Igor, and a whole lot more - thanks. Both from me
as an employee, and me as a guy who finds the world a slightly
better place knowing that there are still some helpful and
friendly people around.
Gosh, that sounds like I’ve been listening to too much Christmas
music, doesn’t it?
Anyway, whether the next little while is a holiday for you in a
religious sense, or just a chance to get together with some
friends, take my best wishes for a happy one with friends and
