A little quiet
Posted by Temporal at 2003/04/24 17:23:59 PDT

It's been quiet around here lately. I suspect this is because we are close to the end of the academic year, and everyone is busy with finals and such. I know this is the case for myself (I have a huge artificial intelligence project and a huge computer vision project to do!), and I think Dev is having the same problem. I just want to reassure eveyone that this is only temporary. This should take off again in mid-May at the latest.

Yes, I second what Temporal said. As one who has been around for a good portion of this project I've seen it get quiet like this many times only to pick back up again a week or two later. This is an incredibly busy time for people in school, especially higher education. Not to worry folks, no need to start doom and gloom threads (like most of the other times) Things are simply reflecting the schedules of most of the main contributors, not their level of interest.

To all in school: GOOD LUCK!! Study harder than you think you need to, and don't pull all nighters before your tests! Pull all nighters the day before and get a good nights sleep the night before. It worked for me! I remember studying like a mad crazy scientist two days before my biggest test, and sleeping well the night before. I aced that test, and barely passed the others. (didn't have that luxury with all of them) ANYWAY, good luck!

Yes, good luck to all as well. I myself have 2 AP tests and several finals coming up in a few days. I'm actually going back out to Cali this weekend, but that's beside the point! Don't be like me: Be wise, don't procrastinate, follow Aetrus' wisdom, and MAKE SURE you come back to FoI right after! hehe Don't worry, I've given you plenty to think (and post) about for when you get back.

Hey, notice how this time during the extreme quiet how I didn't bug people to death like last time? I'm getting better at this ;)

Yeah, some of us are from Canada. Whoo, finals are in June :s. But good luck to all of you, education is slightly more important than FoI right now. but only RIGHT now ;) j/k.

This is the part where I, were I to have the time, make some sort of dramatic "fear not" leadership speech to rally everyone together. Instead, I'll pull an Aetrus and just say "What Temp Said."

I guess I kind of lied when I said after I escaped from my Hell Week (April 14-20) that I'd be more free and available. I thought I would be, but that's turning out not to be the case, with lots of papers and class projects piling up, and then finals. Bleh. What's worse, my computer no longer has Internet access. I'm on a public lab computer right now. Sucks. A lot.

Meanwhile, holy crap. Aetrus and Mystik. You guys ... are the best advisors ever. And I ... wait ... let me check ... yes ... yes, I mean that. Really. Keep up the good work guys, but also keep up the good grades. This thread's got the right message. ;)

Anyway, see you guys on the flipside ... where hopefully everything will be a lot brighter.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to pull an Aetrus. What Dev said. Spose thast wasn't quite an Aetrus but you get my drift.

What I have come back to say is, no matter how slow things might be, if a semi-active member returns from inactivity to see a forum with summarised topics and closed decisions...they will most probably feel like they cannot do anything, and go into a longer state of inactivity.

To conclude my yammering, I really think we should start a barrage of topics about all sorts of things to get the ball rolling, no matter how big the ball is or how many people are needed to push it until it reaches the bottom of the hill.

To start, I will be starting a 'Our situation on loading'. Location as of yet: Unknown, sorry!
