Hello all,

As I haven't had more than a couple of days off, in oh, about 4 years, I'll be taking a holiday from tomorrow until Wednesday 20th August. This means I won't be replying to anything during this period, although I'll probably check in from time to time.
I'm very aware of a legion of bugs to fix, and I'll work through fixing them all when I'm back. Also there'll be some additional testing of things I know aren't properly tested yet.

From the 28th August until 8th September the staff will be having a meet-up for company planning and frolics, so not a lot of development will happen during that time.

I have provisionally scheduled RC1 to be released on the 22nd August, but that very much depends on my feeling for how stable it is at that point.

  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

well I do know you have been working hard lately so you need it.
Good luck and have a good one.

Still makes me wonder which will be out first ocportal 4 or ipb 3 or even smf 2 and the race begins. LOL

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

Gee I am such an emotional girl. I actually started to cry cuz I am going to miss you.

You a great guy and always in a good mood and willing to help. You are always nice even when people are getting frustrated. You are probably one of the smarted php developers I have ever met not to mention you fix bugs far faster then a lot of other script makers do.

Any way I will stop crying now or try to.

How long you been back.
You came on here quite a bit so was not sure how your vacation was going and I do hope it went well.

It was more of a 'slow down' than a full holiday. I just needed some time away from my regular tasks (I hadn't taken any weekends in a while), but I wasn't actually away anywhere. It's quite possible I'll take a proper foreign holiday in a few weeks time, after v4-final is out and any other associated stuff finished. I've been dreaming of a beach holiday for a while, we'll see ;).
