Hi @doubledad, I assure you that I hold no animosity towards you at all mate! It is not in my nature, if I have a disagreement or argument with someone, it is forgotten as soon as it is over. For 6 months of each year I work about 6 feet from my mate, day shift, afternoon shift, night shift…and quite a lot of those shifts are 12 hours… physically closer than most couples and believe me Doubledad we have some ding dong arguments! (And I have known this man for over 30 years)…but we let them go as fast as possible because we both know that it benefits no one to brood about what is in the past. So believe me when I say that you have not been “banished” (What a medieval term!)
I too enjoyed our exchanges and believe me when I say that I am deeply grateful to you for the kindness you have shown me in creating those faces you mentioned. But I had grown heartily tied that every time I commented on a UL watch face, some people began trying to convince me that I was all wrong and I should be using Universal Launcher. On quite a number of occasions I patiently explained that the first time I used it I was lucky to get my watch to boot up again (Indeed @Dr_Andy_Vishnu had to help me with that) But even when I explained what had happened, I was still told to persevere with it! So I had to make my position as plain and as forceful as possible…I didn’t enjoy doing it, but at least it stopped people trying to convince me to use it.
But to return to why I haven’t commented on your work lately…you make a great deal of faces for UL and I didn’t want a position to arise where I would comment on them, makes jokes about them and then have to deal with the “Doons, get UL, you fool” campaign all over again. Far better, I thought, to simply not comment and avoid any hassles. I see that @Joao_Nascimento (And what great faces he is turning out!) is being very supportive of your work, so I was sure that my previous input would not be missed and no harm done. So no need to feel that I am angry with you Doubledad. I am more than happy to comment on your work again Doubledad (Un Banish you as it were! ) But I will be telling anyone who tries to get me to use UL, in no uncertain terms, to mind their own bloody business! Cheers, Doons
