Today will be my last day as administrator and general poobah of this community.
I will be finishing my PhD and starting a real job in a few months, and the demands of my dissertation don't afford me the time this board deserves. This will only get worse when I start a job, so it's time for me to step down and let others take over.
You'll notice over the next few days and weeks changes to the admin and mod staff, and perhaps changes to rules and procedures as the fresh blood decides what's the best way to run this place. Try to be nice, they're all learning how everything here works, and will probably experiment on you a bit to see what choices are best.
It's been fun!
True terror lies in the futility of human existence.

"The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill
