My "Obituary"

Over many years I have enjoyed the company of many persons here. I’ve enjoyed giving support to all who have needed, even advising in conflict.

When given the role of Scholar I never expected it since it had nothing to do with my Math abilities; I think it was more about advising how one might get a specific format since neither the poster nor I could override levik’s “reserved words”.

Federiko Kereki introduced using OpenOffice’s equivalent to MS Excel to produce XHTML tables as images which a Scholar could implement without having to “bug levik”. I learned the technique. Maybe it was then that I understood that a Scholar had free access to all HTML tags, and utilise other technologies.

From there I found that I could build standard HTML tables for other posters as well as myself. The next step was to make those tables interactive by adding javascript programming to them.

At a later stage I discovered Walter Zorn’s JVG add-on library for javascript. (Sometime after Walter was deceased – RIP). Levik placed a copy of Walter’s library on site making it easy for me to implement a host of diagrams for many.

I have always valued everyone’s right to post a problem and never enjoyed having to give a TD. I trust that those who did receive one understood that the reason was because of “problem duplicity” or that I was placing a hold for some explanation; if there was another reason I cannot recall (maybe the problem was seen as being “homework”).

I have “programmed” as an amateur under a range of languages and have welcomed dialogues with Charlie across several of them.

The point of this however is that, even though I have been allowed to develop my skills, and been challenged in the process to help grow Perplexus, I believe that I have been failed.

In any construction, if there is a flaw then everything will ultimately crumble.

Ultimately it was not the Ady-brianjn feud for my decision to say “enough” but levik’s indecisiveness to make a critical determination.
He only had to rebuked both Ady and myself, and remove what I considered offensive to me (as well as realise that such material would also be offensive to others had they been recipients).

Oh! Don’t be surprised that I have removed material (not secured), which after all my intellectual property.
