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.

according to Ext he is still with the company:

But it is obvious he hasn't been doing any Ext work in the past 6 months or so. So if he is still with the company, it is only a formal thing. Any insights on what happened (as your rant about Animal and Jay Garcia seems somewhat unrelated)?

Post was not very useful. Just flaming Animal and Jay Garcia. Though I don't particularly love Animal's coding style, he does understand Ext-JS and helps a lot of people to do so, including me at times. Your post title is spam-like. I wanted to know the whereabouts of Jack but found nothing here.

This site is written by someone who has nothing better to do in their life than to try to bash people. It makes me wonder if he has a personal deficiency that he's trying.

What is it the kids say? "Haters gonna hate!"

Get a life, douche!

Animal is the most arrogant and ignorant asswh.. that I have come about for a long time.

His extensions that I tried to use were faulty. But, of course, he ignored and proposals.

The documentaiton of EXT is a scandal anyway. This is a greedy "profit only" compampany that steals very much time from their customers.

Its been over 3 years since I sold the company (contrary to this article), and over 4 years since the license change created so much turmoil. Can you please remove this phony post now? Thanks.

Such a spam-like article. Your article has no point to it and it seems like you got paid to rage regarding ExtJS. If you really think you are the shit to judge frameworks and technologies like you have done above, go make your own shit then complain. It feels like a six year old has written this article.
