Subject: Re: [Freedos-devel] Need help with project coordinator role
Pat had emailed me before sending his note to the mailing list, asking
me if I'd be willing to step back into the FreeDOS Project for him. I
said yes, but wanted to wait for Pat & I to chat before I sent a note
here to announce my return. But Pat may be away from email right now.
I only resubscribed to the FreeDOS lists on Monday, so didn't see that
Pat sent a call for a new project coordinator on Sunday.
Anyway, let me take this moment to say "I'm back". :-)
A quick summary for those curious about my whereabouts since doing the
handoff to Pat in 2009:
I had planned to enter grad school, for a Master's degree in
Management of Technology ("MS-MOT"). But a few months after passing
the coordinator role to Pat, and right before entering the MOT
program, I had an opportunity to apply for an outstanding job. I had
to decide: pay the non-refundable tuition, and ignore the fabulous
opportunity - or miss the tuition deadline to apply for the new
I went for the job. While I didn't get that job, those events led me
to an even *better* position as campus IT Director / CIO at the
University of Minnesota Morris, where I am now.
I never *totally* disappeared from FreeDOS, anyway. If you're on the
'freedos-svn' email list, you may have noticed I did some work on an
updated FreeDOS Installer. And of course, I've been updating the web
