Stepping DownPosted by Paul S on Sat March 16, 2002 at 0h00
Effective March 22nd, I will be stepping down from my role of minding the
door at Thursday club sessions, and being the general "computer guy" at clubs
and tournaments. A lack of time prohibits me from fufilling either duty
successfully. There is also a possibility that I will be working out of town
starting in May. Since our club's laptop hard drive recently suffered an
unexpected demise, it seems like a good time for me to move on.
However, I will still remain a director of the club and, most importantly to
you (since you're here), I will still be maintaining this web site. Obviously
updates will not be too frequent but at least the site will still be
maintained. The only problem would arise if I do indeed go out of town to
work, but the chances of that are fairly low, so in the meantime site updates
will continue as my time permits.
The web site will not be completely unaffected by my departure from the
other roles. I will not have access to our tournament results quite as
quickly as I used to, and it also means that all of that fancy stuff that I
wanted to do (e.g. live results) is not going to happen. I also won't have the
last names of new players for the Club Results Archive right away, since
they'll be giving the forms to somebody else. For the most part, though,
things won't change too much with regard to this site.
We are looking for club members with basic computer skills to help out with
results entry at tournaments. If you can help please contact Siri or
Randall - see the contacts page for
email addresses. The good news is that we should have some replacement
equipment lined up for the Summer tournament, so by then all should start to
return to normal, with somebody else in charge of the results.
