qarl owes Hamlet one beer. :)

Indigo Mertel

Thank you for the lead, Hamlet.

Qarl deserves all my respect for this decision. I think it's great that he is not giving up. I really hope that some solution can be worked out. Losing so much enthusiasm and talent is just... not right.

Thank you, Qarl.

Nalates Urriah

Thanks for the update Hamlet. I first came across Qarl when he and Domino Marama were discussing sculpties in the old forum and JIRA as Domino and Gaia figured out what could be done with them and Domino built PrimStar and Gaia built JASS.

I would love to know what the powers that be at LL were thinking when they let Qarl go. Makes no sense to me. I wish Qarl the best.


Is Hamlet going to SLCC?

Daniel Smith

I would bet that Karl will do just fine at SLCC :)

Maria K's post inspired me to write:

I think that the greater OpenSim / 3d viewer / Grid community will find ways to make use of Karl's (and Jim Pubrick, and so many others) talents. Of course there is the caveat that they may be limited in what they are allowed to work on.

It's time for the community to assume the leadership role.

Paisley Beebe
