ANOTHER HAT FOR MARTIN

I don't know if anyone saw, but right at this moment (20:30 CET) Martin earned his CROWN.
(before 20:35, he was a wizard, now, at 20:37, he has been promoted....

Congratulations Martin. See you in Nashua!

(Funny to see this change in NRT....)

Re: ANOTHER HAT FOR MARTIN

Well done Martin!
Truely Martin you an example to use all but I don't know how you find the time to answer all the questions in VMS and Linux. I assume all your VMS systems behave perfectly and you have no projects to distract you from answering forum questions :-)

Saw you yesterday with 'only' 2498 pts.
Still no.1 in OpenVMS forum and now the first king!
And already no.10 in Linux forum.

Great contribution!
Enjoy your crown and
keep on foruming

Re: ANOTHER HAT FOR MARTIN

Hello,

Thanks a lot for your kind words. The good news for everybody is, that at the current rate it is about two years until the next of these threads is due.

To quote Friedrich II (King of Prussia): A king is the first servant of his people and that is how I do understand this particular hat.

Some specific remarks:

Ian, yes we do not have many VMS related problems (since our outpost here in Chicago runs pretty much production only), I do have lots or project/management work though. Participating in technical discussions here is a way to keep me from going nuts because of the "business". Anyhow I do most research after hours from home.

Merjin, thanks a lot for the graph. One thing it does show nicely is that there are many people more active than me. As for Perl, let me put it that way. If I program, it is mostly Perl I use, I've put together the Perl distro for the last VMS freeware CD and I submitted a few patches to module maintainers, so I do kind of work with it ;-) If you are looking for somebody how really knows the in and outs I do highly recommend Craig Berry who is pretty much at the heart of the VMS Perl effort (and who is due for his first hat soon!)

All the best,

Martin

P.S. I definitly will work to continue to the Sands of Egypt. I did a couple of courses in Egyptology at the university back in the days, so I like to revisit the place :-))

VMS and Linux not conflicting. See book

Re: ANOTHER HAT FOR MARTIN

I didn't meant to imply any struggles, but OpenVMS and Unix/Linux usually require a different mind set (files, devices, processes, ...) to handle them correctly. It was rather meant as a compliment to Martin.

Re: ANOTHER HAT FOR MARTIN

I was fairly disappointed in that book Ian, although I respect John for the time that it takes and I know it's always easier to pick holes than to do something in the first place.

For me though, there were too many screen-shots and too little actual integration.

That's just me though. IMMV.

Re: ANOTHER HAT FOR MARTIN

Martin, I see you've been crowned !

Well done and on the subject of Egypt, the University of Chicago has a wonderful museum devoted to the subject. There is also the Field Museum. I'm sure you're aware of both.

For those not from Chicago.

When HP World comes to Chicago in August....
