A Retirement and a Legacy - zodac leaves the Folding@Home Team

post #1 of 78
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

We have a great many volunteers who offer countless hours of their busy lives to help keep Overclock.net running; and we appreciate them all greatly - the place absolutely would not function or hold the esteem it has without their continual efforts, and I consider myself lucky to have worked with such an all-star team.

Every once in a while, someone comes along who decides that "above and beyond" is not enough. These kind of people are something special - their dedication to their duties and the progress they are able to make is outstanding, and they set an awesome example for the rest of us to try and follow just by how much they love what they do. zodac, our longtime Folding@Home Editor, is one of those people. smile.gif Leading the charge of the already successful Folding@Home team into something that is a true force to be reckoned with, both in terms of raw contribution to the project and in our climb up the team rankings, has been thrilling to watch as a member and as a member of the management team, and the number of people who participate in the activity because of, in some part, his efforts are probably too many to count. For the Overclock.net Folding@Home Team and the community as a whole, zodac is a legend.

All good things eventually come to an end, however, and zodac will be leaving the team as of tonight - life took precedence, an education waits to be conquered, and after a couple of years where he has easily put in more hours in aggregate than even I have, I'd say a little time off is much deserved.

So, with that said, please join me in thanking zodac for his innumerable contributions, and if there is anything you can think of that might be able to bribe him into staying with us, please let one of us know. smile.gif

Enjoy your retirement, Z!

Wow. I've never had the opportunity to speak with zodac, personally on these forums but zodac is indeed a very big part of OCN. I've read several threads/posts and seen zodacs efforts in regards to the folders here on OCN.

OCN is hands down the best forums on the net. Period. And it's really solid members like zodac that keep this place so amazing.

Enjoy your retirement zodac. Best of luck in all your new endeavors. thumb.gif

I have a small golden kitten I can toss into the "bribe" bag. Poops like mad but she's pretty cute.

I've known zodac for a few years now, and I've got to say that I've never seen anyone more dedicated to OCN than him.  He took the folding team and made it the powerhouse that it is today.

 

Z, I wish you the best in all of your future endeavours and I hope that you still frequent OCN from time-to-time to taunt/torment the new folding members like only you know how to do tongue.gif

Now that they are leaving, I must know. Is it a him or her? I've heard both...

Zodac helped me get into folding walking me through it step by annoying step.lol

I personally think he/she was one of the best moderators/editor that I have personally dealt with. Love him/her!!! I appreciated him/her so much that when a donation drive was held to update his/her rig I jumped at the chance to donate my mobo and ram.

No question that he/she deserved it,and OCN is truly losing out by him/her retiring!

Enjoy your retirement Z!!!
