Subject RE: Jakarta Velocity 1.3 Released
Date Mon, 08 Jul 2002 08:04:56 GMT
Hello Geir,

I'm a lurker on the list, and doesn't say much, but I was quite amazed after
reading this!

I'm single, now working relatively normal hours (consultant), and I dont
think I have enough time for both a private life, exercise, and doing all
the private coding I want. Here you are, with a wife (must be very
understanding!), a fulltime jobb (where you've been working like crazy),
actually do things like sailing, and still gets out a product like Velocity,
and are involved in other projects!!! What is the secret? Sleep deprivation?
Being an incredibly fast typist? Magic? I'd really like to know! :-)

Best Regards, 
Tommy Svensson

The honest truth here is that I got hosed for a while with my consulting
work.  Almost 7 days a week for about 6 months. The 1.3-rc1 release was
when I was able to shake free for JavaOne, for example.  Lately, I've
reintroduced myself to my wife, and remembered how to race a sailboat...

Anyway, things with my professional work are now on an even keel, so I
should be able to resume devoting more time to Vel, DVSL, Jexl and other
things ...
