I'm leaving...
« on: February 08, 2006, 04:09:09 am »
Hey all. Sorry to inform you about this, but I'm leaving.

After taking my week of vacation, I realized I really don't have the time to keep working on C::B anymore. I get out of the job exhausted, and then I have other obligations to fulfill. Besides, in around 6 months i leave to become a missionaire and spread the gospel.

So, that leaves me with little time to enjoy my family and my closest friends. I hope you guys understand.

There are some requests i have for the group.

1. Please fix that "cancel button does not cancel" bug, it's IMHO one of the nastiest bugs in C::B, it's completely user-unfriendly. We need a way to store the temporary configurations and reject them.

2. The open files list needs to be put in a real project+directory tree like the project tree. Those long filenames get me dizzy :P

3. Code completion. It's IMHO the contribution that I feel most proud of, I applied all my knowledge in this, I really hope you enjoyed my changes. But there are some things that need to be completed, I will post about them in the CodeCompletion redesign forum.

Goodbye all, God bless! It's been an honor to work with you! :)

As an admirer of the hard work and dedication you've given, not only to Code::Blocks itself but to its community in general,

With sympathy, because my own priorities must leave me little time for coding,

Given new motivation to complete my own work in the parsing area,

I'll just say...

Hello Ricardo,

First let me thank you for what you have done not only as programmer, but as forum's administrator too.

Second, the code completion is really an amazing piece of software :D. You did a very good job.

Third, I wish you to spend a very good and relaxing time with your family and closest friends.

And fourth, I would like to wish you all the best for your missionaire work. May God bless you.

Best wishes and all the best,

PS.: Despite all, I hope to hear from you again (soon or later).

What little experience I've had with C::B over these few weeks, I can still say you've done a fine job.  I'm impressed with how well the code completion is working.  Hopefully, someone can step up in your place and complete the code;) 

I pray that your mission will bring you closer to the Lord and make you more like Him every day.

Take care!

Thank you for your good work Rick. Thousands of people have already benefited from your efforts and thousands to come will continue to do so. Your break (so to speak) is well deserved. Be well and thanks again.

Thank you rick for all your hard work, and the help you have provided myself, and others in the past.  You will be missed, but I completely understand.  Good luck with your missions work, and May God Richly Bless you in your future plans.  It would be nice to hear from you again sometime in the future.   :D
