That Jorgen Guy Is Alright!
If you've been on ActiveRain for four years like I have, you have read or know about some controversy that pops up around here. Sometimes it's fascinating to watch, sometimes embarrassing, and sometimes painful.
I won't opine on the manner the parties concerned left, but I would like to wish everyone, those who left and those who remained, the very best. It's a fact of life that we choose what is best for ourselves, our families, and our business.
I don't know the AR founders and the remaining staff personally, but I know of them and what they've done for the AR community. If you'd like to wish Jon and Jorgen well, and thank them for their work, dedication, and vision please visit the links above.
Regardless of how you feel about the eulogy post, I'd like to thank Jorgen Hahn publicly for the special help he gave me the other evening. His post included the activeumbrella, a link that allows transfer of your AR blog to WP blog (if you choose to). John Novak pointed out how nice it was that he did that, and I agree.
What wasn't mentioned in my previous blog was that my first and second attempts didn't transfer. I e-mailed Jorgen about it, and to my surprise he responded... many times!
When I created my WP account, I chose ofallonrealtor, but when I created the blog itself, I named it happyblogs instead. Jorgen pointed this out to me, and at first he said the program won't support this anomaly. BUT didn't stop there... he created a beta version just for me, then he modified the code later to allow for the different WP account and WP blog for everybody else.
This is probably the kind of help he gave AR members while he was working as a one-man IT band here. Doesn't it say what kind of person he truly is?
So, thank you Jorgen for your generous spirit, and my very best wishes to you in your future endeavors.
