That’s great, Stray! If not today, then in the next days I’ll write the questions in a new thread with the mention that the first one (newbie) who is able to answer the questions would get a Robotlegs Pomodoro Timer. If you’d like to see the questions before I post them to the forum, I could email them to you. Other than that you could make sure that the person answering the questions is indeed a newbie, I don’t know how though.. As for my application, I used XML files for the Flex app. A database version would be more appropriate. The AIR version using SQLite is not finished. The idea was to have different levels of difficulty and to use the frequently asked questions as a base to build the questions and answers. I won’t bore you with more details about it, but it would be cool, if such an application (not necessarily mine) would be part of the Robotlegs platform, and users could take a test online or download an AIR version and get the questions and answers from a Robotlegs server. If users would have built a set of useful or interesting questions you (the rl bunch) could approve them and upload them to a robotlegs server. But I guess it is not possible to have such a robotlegs back-end. Thank you!
Ondina Hi Ondina, that's a fine idea! My feelings are not hurt at all :) For me, the rewards are many - between using Robotlegs every day and seeing so many people further their understanding of software architecture through using it, plus writing the book has been great fun, and the Robotlegs summit was one of the best weeks of my life (so far). Your idea sounds brilliant - just let me know what else you need me / us to do. Thanks!

I didn’t expect such a reward and I’m very touched. The fact that you thought of us is a very kind and considerate gesture. That proves once again, that you in particular and “The Robotlegs bunch” in general are a very ..hmm how should I say it...Let me just use some tags : exquisite, outstanding, remarkable, witty and of course cool :) It’s been 2 years since I started using robotlegs and one of the reasons I continued using it without hesitations was the fact that you, the bunch behind robotlegs, have created such an easy-going atmosphere in the community, which in my eyes is a prerequisite for success when working on any kind of projects and especially on an open source project. Robotlegs Pomodoro Timer is sweet! I know, it’s bad manners to refuse a gift, and it would be the last thing in my mind to hurt your feelings! To me just the idea of you thinking of me is rewarding and gratifying enough. I’m glad that you let me contribute to your project, even if me answering some questions on the forum is just a little contribution compared to the utilities and tutorials written by other users and even more insignificant compared to your (Stray & the robotlegs bunch) work. Who is rewarding you? ;-) So, if you don’t mind, I would give my Robotlegs Pomodoro Timer to someone else. I thought of giving it to a newbie who would answer some questions on the tender forum. The questions are part of a robotlegs-quiz application that I made last year, that was meant to be a robotlegs demo, but I’ve never found the time to refine it so it could be shown. But at least the questions could be used. If you think that’s not a good idea, then you could suggest who should get my Timer. Thank you again for thinking of me. You all rock!! But Stray is the Superhero of this year ;-) Ondina ________________________________ From:Stray <dailystray...@googlemail.com> To: krasi...@outset.ws; ondina...@yahoo.com; Michał Wróblewski <wrobel...@gmail.com>; camille.reynd...@gmail.com; paulsli...@gmail.com Cc: Shaun Smith <dars...@gmail.com>; "firstname.lastname@example.orgHooks" <joelho...@gmail.com>; Till Schneidereit <tschneider...@gmail.com>; Robert Penner <i...@robertpenner.com> Sent: Saturday, September 3, 2011 5:30 PM Subject: Thank you for looking after your Robotlegs peers! Hey Michał, Ondina, Camille, Paul and Krasimir, You've all done great stuff on the Robotlegs tender this past several months (and years!) - and we wanted to give you a little something to say thanks for the generosity with which you all give your time. It's a Robotlegs Pomodoro Timer (also works for baking cakes) - you can see a picture here: http://www.xxcoder.net/why-im-giving-away-robotlegs-pomodoro-timers-at-my-flash-on-the-beach-session I'll need your postal address to get them to you - if you could let me know what that is, I'll pop them in the post. If you are coming to Flash on the Beach then even better - I can give them to you there! Thanks again - we'll be sharing all our exciting news about Robotlegs 2 on Monday the 12th September - I'll email you all with a link as soon as it goes public! Cheers, Stray / The Robotlegs bunch
