I'm Still Here!

Hello!

It was brought to my attention by another long-time BT member that I've been awfully quiet in the forum. But I wanted to let everybody know that I'm still here! I've been quite busy with life lately, and it doesn't allow me the time I used to have to play around with the new code. So, I'm waiting until it stabilizes, and then I'll be back in the game!

Happy days.

The fun we had 6,7 years ago. Still remember the first app store approval email, was giddy!

Happy Friday brother!

Yep! I was so stoked to get that email! I still haven't made a single penny off any apps I've created...they've all been pro-bono work for various organizations. But it's still fun!

Happy Friday good sir!

Can't believe I started out here over 5 years ago! Where did all that time go? I remember releasing my first app when iOS was still simple... one screen size 3.5". Oh jeez I wish it was that simple again.

Anyway, I digress, I'm glad you're still around. Through the highs and lows, you've always been here for the communtity. Keep up the good work, whether on bt or wherever life leads you these days!

Yes, the community, always the community, not the self.

'Tis sad that some made it about the self and not the community. From the ashes groweth the phoenix. As long as the couple or three morally reprehensible people don't become super active again the future may be bright for the BT platform.

It needs folks like Mark and Smug, needs fresh ideas from Kristen, Sue et al. The spirit needs not only be recaptured it must be nurtured and moulded into something new. To do that many of the BT'ers of old need to be around. Big shout out as well to my friends from the old country and across the pond. We are always vocal, yes?

Be wary of the returners in new suits though. They were always there, lurking.

Always brothers to the crew on here.

Great to see GNW is around :)

I started with BT when I had two babies which I looked after all day at home. They've grown a lot since then - I'm sure BT will be doing the same!

Right back at you from this side of the pond, MacApple.

Happy March!

Looking forward to seeing how things evolve around here. I'm still a HUGE believer in BT!
