Default So long and thanks for all the fish.

Dear Newbeetle.org

After an appropriate period of deliberation, I have come to the decision to
tender my resignation as admin, effective today, July 9th.

I thank you sincerely for the good times we've shared over the past eight years;
it has been a journey that has provided me a lot of memories to think on in retirement.

As such, I have decided to become a professional pirate. It has always been a
dream of mine to live the life of a swashbuckling corsair, beholden to none and
master of all I survey. Once my crew of unabashed rogues is assembled, we shall
take to the capacious expanse of the high seas to pursue fortune, fame, and
hair-raising adventure.

Our path may not be filled with the porcine comforts being an admin provides,
but we shall nonetheless move forward to carve a name for ourselves in the annals
of bold insurgency and death-defying derring-do. Once I have a keen blade at my hip
and the Jolly Roger is flapping high above me, I believe I will find my true calling.

Please note that I am currently accepting applications for First Officer, if
you are at all interested in applying. I will provide a full medical and dental
plan, which will offer immediate coverage of all maladies other than scurvy and
the occasional bout of rickets.

Sincerely

Good luck. Have fun. And remember, time is an illusion.

Lunchtime doubly so.

I was looking for something just like this to say. Best of luck as you move on. Say hello to the Dolphins. I assume you are leaving with them? :-)
