Air - the latest PCSX2 retiree
Jake Stine (Air) has retired from PCSX2, after more than two years of vigorous work on the emulator.

My reason for leaving is simple: I am now married and am taking a job that promises to be interesting and challenging, and will be paying me quite well -- and I fully intend to apply myself there as I have here: with unwaivering dedication and focus.

I have really enjoyed working with PCSX2 these past 2+ years. I have learned a lot about a wide variety of things including (and not limited to) becoming intimately familiar with console hardware design, and developing more advanced high and low level software development skills -- such as binary translation and better understanding of operating systems and application binary interfaces (ABIs).

I will be leaving a few unfinished projects in my wake, such as the R3000A rewrite (recompiler and interpreter), and new dmac work. These side-projects were educational in their own ways for myself and other PCSX2 contributors, however; even if they never quite survived into "profoundly operational" status.

I wish good luck to users and current and future PCSX2 developers and bid everyone a proper farewell -- perhaps unusual in emulation, a scene where the programmers often silently vanish.

I'll just reply to abdo123 here:
Jake leaving PCSX2 means an enormous loss. It won't be just a slowdown, unfortunately.
The rest of the team, me included, will still try to keep up the quality though!
Leaving is always bittersweet. Good luck in life Jake! Your work with this project is pretty sweet. Have fun at the new job! We will miss you.
