(Edit May 2010: check out The North Gate Well.) Most developers or TXP forum moderators do not seek fame or recognition, instead preferring just to quietly do their bit for Textpattern. One such is Rick Silletti. If he's not moderating on the forum, you might find him writing plugins at Textcastle, negotiating with elks in Mammoth Hot Springs, photographing moose on ParklinG.NeT or writing poetry and short stories at the Frantic Antic. Not that TXPQ equals 'fame' but thanks for stepping into the spotlight, Rick. Enjoy!
The Path Here
TXPQ How would you describe your general state of being, eg happy, stressed, optimistic etc?
TXPQ Are you more artistic/intuitive or logical/analytical?
TXPQ Are you right-handed or left-handed?
TXPQ What motivates you or "makes you tick"?
TXPQ What are you doing tonight?
RS Walking in the moonlight
TXPQ How long have you lived by Yellowstone Park?
RS I live in the park when I'm working, that would be 9 months out of the year since 1995.
TXPQ Do you have a daily routine? Is it in tune with nature?
RS My mornings start at 5am (old military habit) and I begin communicating with others around 6:30am. My workday is entirely unpredictable, but my off time otherwise is a random pattern of hiking, skiing, cooking, and computers when nothing else is in my hands. Routines for me are an opportunistic affair that have, for the most part, shaken off the feel of planning.
TXPQ What takes up most of your day?
RS Searching for smiles
TXPQ There's evidence of this at The North Gate Well :-)
TXPQ When did you first use Textpattern?
TXPQ Have you used any other broadly similar software?

TXPQ How long have you been programming?

TXPQ Did you start writing plugins from necessity or for fun?
