I'm gone for a while, and when I get back, I read through a few posts, do a little back-tracking, and find a post from Ini that says he requested all his posts be removed under threat of legal action, yadda yadda yadda, don't be like him. So then, I do some searching and find some threads that link to other threads that detail what happened, and link to even more threads that show this decent into mayhem. What an astounding loon. I'm sorry I missed the whole show... I do like watching a train wreck.

Er, but really, I'm posting to say hey everybody, and see how y'all are doing.

Hey everybody!

How are y'all doing?

Mmmmh... yes, that would be me. Glad to see you back too btw HS.
Don't wanna "hijack" this thread and such, so I won't "expose the details" here, plus I don't feel like
justifying anything, but feel free to ask, I have nothing to hide either.

In the long run, the "legal debate of mental property" would be a long and painful one, but the
initially silly argument went out of control... I must admit I had my share of silliness in it.

I don't want a flame wars to restart, I happen not to give a damn nowadays, but of course, situations like this are not Black/White,
and a couple of people around here would still piss me off if I hadn't learnt to live with the fact you just can't be everybody's pal.

What I earned in it? The disresepct of some people who don't matter to me, with the exception of Doc O, and yet a chance for a fresh "restart":
part of my past posts were "wrong" (technically speaking), overly emotional (as in one good tech info vs 20 posts of childish flame wars and such).

Plus I didn't, and still don't like to be part of the internal "hierarchy": glad to be off of the Mad Sci wagon, and to just be _Mauro.

That trailing slash is a pain in the arse though... ouch*


Ah, had missed the meaning of "loon", but it doesn't change my response:
you "like to watch a train wreck", frequent a place called the Asylum, and are complaining about lunatic behaviors?
Don't complain, stay and enjoy, and if you don't like me, viva la democracy, I have nothing to prove.

Hi HS.

WOW!!, It has been a long time.

It's really good to see you back. Are you still with Adobe? (Or was that someone else?).

I haven't been at Adobe since they stopped production on LiveMotion in April of 2002. :-\ They rehired a bunch of us to work on the DVD product, but I was not among them. They had only 3 spots open in QA, and they went to senior staff. I still hang out with my coworkers/friends from there, and they've sworn that, should a position open, they'll call me in to interview for it. They're actually hoping to increase staff soon, but I don't hold my breath and pray... I just work my job at this new place, testing medical software for doctors, and wait. It was a sad thing they stopped LiveMotion, because LiveMotion 2 was the ONLY other Adobe product of 2002 to make its numbers besides Photoshop, and we MORE than made our expected numbers. They cancelled us because they didn't want to compete with Flash, since Macromedia owned the rights to Flash, and could change it anytime they wanted, elaving us always at number 2... and now they OWN Macromedia, so... huh. :P
