gcilou: "MacBooks are overpriced" ... I woulnd't say they're too overpriced, they beat a plastic laptop. They're also a true investment and hold a fair value for a couple years... versus a HP/dell etc drop in resale considerably
buy a used MBP (macbookpro) in good condition :)

Hello everyone! I've been travelling for the past few days and I'll be continuing to for a bit. I wanted to clarify some things brought up here in the meanwhile.
> I've abandoned my task then, because I had spent a lot of time, but opatel99 shouldn't abandon his.
stanlisas: I don't quite understand why having spent a lot of time would make you abandon your task instead of the opposite, but anyway I hadn't realized you had spent so much time on that task. I myself have had at least 10 entire days of effort in this contest wasted thanks to someone else's actions. I understand what it feels like. I apologize to you again about your having had to unclaim that task.
> That's true what opatel99 is saying. YathartRock was warned then.
stanlisas: I had worked for an unclaimed task; I agree with you here. Freso kindly explained how this situation wasn't desirable, I understood, and I said I would try to avoid it. I think it's not about being perfect but about understanding mistakes and moving on; you would agree with here, right?
With opatel99's claimed task, I abandoned PR #27's task because I knew I wouldn't, couldn't, finish it in time because of my travelling.
> Submitting a PR forces a user who claimed it to drop the task for an already completed solution.
opatel99: If one claimed a task and was unable to complete it, one should not apologize to the next person to claim the task. However, because of confusion in the situation here you had to unclaim the task as a consequence of actions of mine, so I apologize.
> and abandon the task. It seems like trouble I don't want to pursu
opatel99: I have apologized, but I would also request you to not cite “trouble” with me as a reasons for your decisions and actions but instead feel comfortable in contacting me, on #metabrainz or via a PM.
Regarding the confusion in the situation, I think I could have prevented much of it by making explicit in a note that I was in fact abandoning the task. I understand this, and I'll try to remember this for the future. I apologize to everyone about its consequences this time
