Jared Ice is better than me... Probably better than you, too...
I fully admit it. Jared Ice is a glittering heroic statue of work ethic and dedication. He ranks me.
That son-of-a-b knows how to put his nose to the grindstone, man. The amount of work he puts into SDAO is not measured by hours, but by days. NAY. Weeks. He plans, researches, revises, replans, re-researches, re-replans, re-revises, and executes a project. And that product, almost always, is stellar. Then, when it is all said and done, he learns from it and goes on to the next.
Don’t get me wrong. SDAO is indeed what it is today because of the both of us, but it COULD not and WOULD not exist without the work he puts into it.
The most impressive thing, however, is the autodidacticism he displays. If he doesn’t know a skill he needs, he learns it. There is no outsourcing of anything he can possibly do himself. That is an entirely admirable trait, and a benefit to anyone who takes anything from the work we do here at SDAO. I include myself in that number. We are all better off because of the work that he does.
If you happen to see that Barihunk Bastard someday, give him a high five and buy him a beer. He has earned it
