Petek is My Hero
« on: January 26, 2021, 03:21:25 PM »
Many of you have not had the Advantage of acquaintance with the serene Petek, God Of All SMACX Installation Troubleshooting.  For this, I pity you.

On November 19, 2011, amidst a call elsewhere for reduced conflict, I posted:

Quote
I just want to mention that Petek is a model we all ought to emulate. Never any drama, to my knowledge.

He goes everywhere AC and helps people everywhere he goes. He is my hero. 👍

-Perhaps those of you who know him will relate Petek Awesomeness stories, or at least just announce how strongly you agree that He Is Great.

Petek's one of the best examples of what people in the community should be like. Always mature, always helpful, an example for the rest of us.

I'm not sure of any specific conversation I had with Petek. I am sure that his hints, tips, and outright helpful dialog were incessantly useful to me when odd things started happening. If I could extract all his information I used from the megabytes on my hard drive, I could write a better essay.

As the writhing, teeming mass of mindworms swarmed over the outer perimeter, we saw the defenders recoil in horror. 'Stay calm! Use your flame guns!' shouted the commander, but to no avail. It is well know that the Mind Worm Boil uses psychic terror to paralyze its prey, and then carefully implants ravenous larvae into the brains of its still-conscious victims. Even with the best weapons, only the most disciplined troops can resist this horrific attack.
