Retiring from moderation

Postby Telemachus » 2011-02-03 20:46

Hi all,

I just wanted to let people know that I will be retiring from moderation here on the forums. My job has been keeping me very busy (boo!), and I've been working very hard at programming outside of my work (yay!), and I simply don't have the time that I used to. I may not be around quite as often, but I'll keep my eyes out for questions where I can be helpful. Also, we are still running a programming study group on IRC. We hold meetings on Sunday afternoons at around 15:00 UTC and all are welcome. (We have switched from Bash to Perl - who knows what we'll do next.)

Thanks, Telemachus

Tele,

It's been great to have you here on the forums. You'll be missed.

Keep in touch on IRC, and if you ever feel the need to come back, you know where we are - and you'll happily be welcomed back to staff.

Hope to see you around every once in a while!

Code: Select all
#!/usr/bin/env perl

use strict ;
use warnings ;

print "\nWhat is the IRC channel for the Perl study group?  " ;
chomp( my $channel = <STDIN> ) ;

my $response ;
$response .= "\nI will see you on IRC channel $channel on Sunday at 15:00 UTC.\n" ;
$response .= "\nThanks!,\n" ;
$response .= "- Soul Singin\'\n\n" ;

print $response ;

Right, I forgot to mention that: we're on Freenode in #study-group (a little homemade channel, just for our, um, study group).

Thanks, Telemachus


I should check announcements more often (for the deets). On the plus side, the orange name is badass, and the Perl group sounds great (if I can get up early enough).

Sorry to hear that you're retiring from moderation. You've been very much appreciated and will be missed as a moderator. Don't stop being a regular.

And I too should probably look at news and announcements a bit more often...

Thanks also, for I don't know how many times you helped me. Frank
Hi! my name if Frank. I have tried before to jump into linux about 8 years ago, but gave up after not being able to get hardware going. Now I will try again, and feel a need to learn to do more from the command line Frank
