Jack Slocum gets fired by Ext LLC

Well, its finally happened. The crafty Jack Slocum has been let go by Ext LLC and Ext JS is now run being driven a bunch of code hackers like "Animal" and wannabees like "Gay Garcia".

For those not familiar with Nige, aka Animal he thinks he's high and mighty but is really a lousy hacker with terrible coding skills. In the early days of Ext, Jack also told him this and treated him as a nobody. But this guy is one persistent grasshopper and has outlived Jack!

Animal's title now says "Ext JS - Community Support Team" and yet he has a signature :

"ExtJs forum volunteer. No official connection to the Ext Company. I do not speak for them.
ExtJs consultancy offered. £ 50/hour. Evenings+weekends."

Perhaps he's trying not to get fired from his day job? The Ext SVN logs have this hacker as one of the active commiters which partly explains the drop in quality of the Ext codebase.

Next up, Gay Garcia. err, Jay Garcia. He is the first to respond to any thread with "Awesome" without even reading the contents. He is trying to make a living of Ext by writing a book which explains his title of being the official Ext ass licker. He does have a knack of posting nice images in his posts like homer simpson pulling his hair out or other cartoon strips. So here's a pic in his honor :

The following is in honor of Jack. May he RIP.

Who is Jack?

For some time many of us have wondered just who is Jack Schitt? We find ourselves at a loss when someone says, "You don't know Jack Schitt!" Well, thanks to my genealogy efforts, you can now respond in an intellectual way.
Jack Schitt is the only son of Awe Schitt.

Awe Schitt, the fertilizer magnate, married Miss O. Needeep They had one son, Jack.

In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt. The deeply religious couple produced six children: Holie Schitt, Giva Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins Deap Schitt and Dip Schitt.

Against her parents' objections, Deap Schitt married her cousin Dumb Schitt, a high school dropout. After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced.

Noe Schitt later married Ted Sherlock, and, because her kids were living with them, she wanted to keep her previous name. She was then known as Noe Schitt Sherlock.

Meanwhile, Dip Schitt married Loda Schitt, and they produced a son with a rather nervous disposition named Chick N. Schitt.

Two of the other six children, Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt, were inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens brothers in a dual ceremony.

The wedding announcement in the newspaper announced the Schitt-Happens nuptials.

The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd, and Hoarse. Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the world. He recently returned from Italy with his new Italian bride, Pisa Schitt.

Now when someone says, "You don't know Jack Schitt," you can correct them.
