- From R. Wynne [AKA Doc/Co-Implementor]
Gosh, I feel almost inadequate here. I didn't meet my beloved on Jedi, and it didn't help me find a better job. Well, it did increase my typing speed and crisis management skills, and i'm sure that helped, but honestly, the way it has changed my life the most is by helping me through the darkest period of my recent life.
When I was laid off from my job in January, 1994, I was very distraught. Athens, Georgia isn't really the best place to find a good-paying job, and the fact that the one I had was eliminated was terribly depressing. During the six months it took me to find a new position, I spent 60-70 hours a week on Jedi. It allowed me to keep myself sane and focused while I was out of work. I doubt if I have ever really told them, but despite the fact that I rarely see them in person, Onivel and Romulus are two of my closest friends, and I really don't know what I would do without them.
Y'know, much can be made of the features of a particular mud or its classes and code. But when you get right down to it, it's the people that make the place fun. And oh, what fun Jedi has been for me.
