Re: Indefinite leave from Debian.
As a debian newbie, I want to thank you for the effort you have
put into debian. I believe your past work will be continue to be
a part of the ongoing debian project, even if you are not present
to nurture it. It will be nurtured by others. I think this
should be pleasant for you to contemplate.
I hope to run across you in some debian future day.
I've been putting off this mail for a while, and I have no excuse for letting
tasks go unattended so long, but I've been trying to pull myself back into
Debian mode. After ALS, I became very enthusiastic again, and was going to
get into swing of things, but apparently it just does not work. Not with
my consciousness telling me that if I do get involved with Debian stuff as I
used to, my grades will suffer (and boy, did they suffer last year...). Not
with my newly rediscovered love of classical music and theater (am I trying
to get a life? nope, just a different kind of "no life" scenario).
I feel very sad for leaving Debian even if temporarily. Debian has taught me
an amazing number of things about life, software, project management and
numerous other things I won't recount now. It forced me to learn programming
for real, it provided me with my first 2 real jobs, which will probably lead
me into a decent career in the future.
