I haven't noticed Carl's presence in the forums for a while. Just curious--is he still with Agile? I have always admired him for his extremely polite way of dealing with complaints.
Carl a few of us have indeed noticed you missing in action. I pulled up your profile and noticed that it was changed to "Just Me" and thought maybe I shouldn't ask anything about it, possibly a way to private matter much like your post indicates. You are indeed missed around here.
Edit: I was thinking about when well managed to hijack that thread in the pre beta 3.0 days, and laughing to myself the other day. I always remember your reply. You only hijacked it if you got away with it. Which included myself, yourself and a few others. Fond memories on my part.
Nice to hear from you. You need or want to talk about anything at all send me a PM. and we can exchange emails etc.
You have waterproof shoulders? LOL
To be blunt and straightforward (since I do not know any way to really sugar coat it), I was fired in mid-December of 2009.
