Hello Jorgen (hmm where's the umlaut when I need it?),

I'm here and at amizillas ML but not being very
usefull ;-) . Anyway,
usually just read the mails because I find it
interesting. What I
that everybody should understand is that if there are
about a projekt like this (AmiZilla, Paihia, AOS 4 etc....) people
why, what's happened since they last read about
it. Months of silence
be quite painfull ;-) . Even a line like
"we've done about 30% work"
"work continues, we've doen a bit but there
is still much left" is
First of all, IMO lurking is no problem at all. At this point in tiem
I'm mainly a lurker here myself, my 'tasks' being PR and testing both of
which require little work given the projects still early stages. The
utterly weird thing however is, that every person/group trying to do
something constructive in the world of Amiga attracts a number of vocal
Trolls. A percentage of those disguise themselves as unknowing
first-time posters. (I'm pretty sure you've seen this phenomenon on the
well-known fora). That makes it hard to distinguish between said Trolls
and true first-posters. Alas that sometimes results in the true
first-poster receiving a less warm welcome than he/she deserves. In
Luke's case I hope there's no damage done.
Putting my PR cap back on, one of our ideas was/is to publish
news-worthy statements when we have one. Just the message "we're alive
and coding, albeit slowly" doesn't really cut it IMHO. On this level the
golden-oldy 'no news is good news' rule applies. An untimely death of
this project would surely be news-worthy tho.
It's not that people are idiots not understanding
that you're working
Like I mentioned, I usually don't write at all at
these MLs but I want
to think twice before you accuse someone for trolling.
Calm down a
and be fair.
Well, I'm breaking a record
here myself :-). Anyways, if you reread my
message to Mark & Rose you'll see that you and I agree about thinking
My opinion offcourse. I'll probably go back to
being quiet now ;-) .
Thanks for being constructive!
And thanks for the work that you're doing,
everyone involved with
Amiga >are very excited about it, I'm sure.
