Well this gives me an opportunity to clarify something I've need to for some time...

I work with my face planted in a computer (often more than one) and when I am waiting for a compilation or a big query to finish I will pop up a screen and post something. Some people take cigarette breaks, I don't smoke nor even have to go to the fire escape for my break. But that does not mean I have time to spare, not even weekends often enough in fact I am going to have to get back to work here in a minute - I had two major account deadlines within three days and today's ran over into tomorrow.

But this quickfire posting presence frequently creates the perception that a computer is something I make time to play with, like many readers do I'm sure. I sit in front of these things an average of 75 hours a week with the job I have especially during the winter. I might have the cycles to post something but frankly that's about it most times.

Anyway, I've been through outlook email hell and have switched to thunderbird (mozilla) and am doing much better now. If I recall we spoke briefly about terms but if I recall we never reached an agreement. If you'd still like to participate as a professional presence in the community the terms are pretty straight forward.

Lets talk by private message. I hope that will work better. So I ask - let's not hijack this thread in this manner any further.

In the meantime... if someone could pick up the sponsorship manager role for 2006 I would be willing to negotiate a good reward program. How about a guided trip...

Well it's 2:29 and I am at a point where loss of sleep will be detrimental to tomorrow... er today's workload.

I have seen no emails or PMs except lots of spam and an exchange with my karate sensei on how best to help our hotshot teen student compete overseas not too long ago this AM. He's a night owl too.

I've thought about this a little bit and decided that the spirit of a sponsorship is not a commercial deal where we are obliged by money, but it should be a bond of cooperation.

I thought about it more and realized that the Forum among other things, is a big part of my recreation. I do it because I enjoy it, there is a lot of good spirit going on here and that's remarkable. It's a sanctuary from the storm, and freindly port just a click away, a favorite pub full of regulars and new faces alike. I dont want it to become work. I already got that and with kids in college I will have that for a while to come.

I apologize that I dropped the ball on your inquiry. If we go forward I would appreciate a more cooperative approach than questioning the fact that I replied to threads as a reason to call me on sponsorship troubles.

Maybe it's time to change the grass-roots style of the place to something a little more sustainable after all these years, like compensated positions for people who take real roles in the site operations.

A thought for another day, good night.
