Hi, this is culprit #1.
I took over eFiction 3 decades - as is feels - ago after it was left with no one else to feed it and give it shelter.
Me and my wife soon decided that it had reached the end of its development life, working into somebody else's code is always a tricky thing.
So eFiction 5 was born and it was a joy to work on it - except it wasn't because it didn't kick off as expected, had a few major backlashes and turned into a duty, an unending list of chores.
For the longest time I didn't want to accept the fact that this project was bigger than me, regarding it had to share time and space with work, family and the little things in life called joy that have to take place every now and then. And my garden that looks like death valley, on the worse of days. I tried to push myself again and again, but everytime I did, the effect was worse and it took more time away to be able to get back to working on it, eventually resulting in a hiatus that has now been ... what, a year-ish?
So here we are, I hope we can find a new maintainer that can do something good with the project and maybe even move further than I have been able to. I have forked the project in it's current status and may, at some point continue my work, but this fork will be purely for fun and away from any expectations or hopes.
I feel like I let a lot of people down, I am sorry, but this isn't working and has become toxic to a point where I can barely open this forum without feeling sick. This is not due to anybody else but me, so this is NOT a blame gun firing into the crowd. I did this to myself and need to cut myself lose ... no, not before I drown, it's not that bad. It's more like a relation that has gone sour and I am now going out the door.
Thank you all for giving me this chance, sorry for not living up to the hopes and godspeed to all of you.
