[squeak-dev] Re: Sound library (from Squeaking up for "'click' sound play")

Hi Hannes,

Emails tend to sound harsher than they were meant.

Yes, you did misunderstand my motivation.

The scope of my pursuit was to fix a piece of code that progress broke. Along the way that included inventing a new way to make that code work. Then I needed to sell that new way to our gatekeepers.

Your task of documenting and providing user help was out of scope of my current efforts. So for me it was a diversion from my primary goal. Looking at what you were assuming I suspect you were projecting your goals on to mine.

>From my point of view it felt you were trying to hook me into doing your work. I was a bit brusk to help you realize the misunderstanding. You were asking a LOT of distracting questions.

Nothing wrong with that except for me the timing. I just need to protect myself from distractions at the moment. Thus the distancing behavior.

Forgive me if it felt harsh.

Yours in curiosity and service, --Jerome Peace
