digitalmars.D.announce - Google Summer of Code -- An Apology

reply Mike Parker <aldacron gmail.com> writes:
Several weeks ago, I received an email from Google informing me 
that the application period for the 2022 Summer of Code was 
approaching. I made a mental note, then went back to whatever I 
was in the middle of at the time without making any other kind of 
note. Then I completely forgot about it.

The end result is that I missed the deadline for mentor 
organization applications. We won't be participating in GSoC this 
year.

I apologize to everyone for dropping the ball on this, especially 
those of you who were looking forward to getting into it this 
year.

I've already put a couple of reminders on my Calendar to prevent 
this from happening again next year.

Don't worry about it, it's only human to forget things. It's impossible to remember everything, if you're already booked up with a lot of other stuff that has to be done.

'forgetting to set a reminder' ahhh.. technology's not that 'smart' afterall.

Years ago I was the GSoC admin and I filled in all the forms and had everything set to go. At the submission deadline I was up rather late completing the last set of forms. I failed to notice one button on the final form of the submission that I had to click to complete the submission, and I thought everything was done. I only found out the next day that the the application hadn't been submitted. Better luck next year.
