Hey nerdydave, I think Patch announced his retirement from OFC Calendar production last year. Know what you mean about missing the calendar, Bernie! I still have all my previous years calendars and lust over all of your Os!

Yes, I've retired and will miss it as well. It's gotten to the point where I have to pick up so much extra work anymore, that I truly just ran out of time for a project this size. And it doesn't help that I have a conscience that can't live with just throwing something together. Every member here deserves better than that.

Even if I had planned on doing the calendars this year, having Covid force all of my courses online (Teaching is my part-time gig.) would have killed any aspirations I had anyway. You wouldn't believe how much additional work is required to convert all of my in-class materials and build modules to any reasonable standard! And it's not like I had loads of warning or support from the colleges to do it.

Still, I wish I could keep the calendar project going. It was something I quite enjoyed. Hopefully someone in the future can pick up the torch though. If they do, I'll be on the buyers' list for certain.

In the meantime, I hope you are all staying safe and healthy!

What a crazy year!

Pretty big shoes to fill.
Thanks again, Patch.

I had offered to pick up the calendar duties from Patch, but then, like him, life got in the way.

I am still willing to take up the yoke, but it's not going to happen for this year's calendar.

From all I heard, Patch did a great job with the calendars. But when Brad passed away, I just kinda felt like the time of calendars (that I was a part of) had come and gone. Still feel that way.....

@Dan - >>>I am still willing to take up the yoke<<<

Yay Dan! Coming from your shop it's bound to be a great product, and a worthy torch passing from Patch's awesome work.
(but I bet you still cringed a little when you hit the submit button on that one)
