Official announcement - New Komodo Author

Post by Don » Mon Oct 14, 2013 1:04 pm

This is a more formal and official announcement that we have added Mark Lefler as a Komodo author. It was mentioned in another thread but it deserves it's own thread.

Mark has already been helpful to Komodo and has contributed ELO improving ideas. A fresh set of eyes on the code is a major advantage and we are confident that our collaboration will continue to yield more improvements to Komodo. The 3 of us each has some great strengths and compliment each other very nicely. Any future versions of Komodo including current development versions now bear his name in addition to ours in the opening banner and id string of Komodo.

Fern can be our official "go-fer", the guy that gets coffee and is our "go to" guy and knows how to get things done.

Qualifications are that you are not afraid to do what has to be done if you catch my drift :-) If we say, "eliminate the problem" you need to be capable of reading between the lines.

It's awkward updating my health on this forum, but basically I am on chemo, I feel pretty good at the moment and my blood levels are dropping but the doc feels that by next week they may start going up - if I responds to the chemo that is. I'm still pretty functional, but I get tired very easily. I am optimistic about the report which I got today.

Mark mentions magic and music on his wiki, sound like an entertaining guy to have around.
