Host Hiatus...

Last edited Thu Jun 28, 2012, 05:13 PM - Edit history (1)

Fellow DUers:

I'm sad to say that circumstances in life have intervened, and I'll be spending much less time on DU starting a couple weeks from now -- So this group will need the other hosts (currently Number23, nofurylike, Frenchiecat, onpatrol) to carry the load...

I won't be gone forever; just a lot more occasional lurking and less posting...

I want to thank all of you for your participation, insights, and helping to make this a very headache-free group to host...

2. I've been posting alot less too

And lurking even less. Between the incessant whining and the non-stop complaining, this place has become boring with a capital B. So many interesting people have long since packed up and left.

I hope that whatever you've got going on in the next few weeks is enjoyable and life enriching.

I am so sorry to hear about this. Are they giving you anything (severance etc.) to make this a bit easier?

10. Aw, marry them both.

They are a winning doubles team, after all.

Best of luck to you.

11. Pass along where you're at ...

and what you do. Some of us are in the position to know someone that knows someone that knows of positions.

That's what family does.

In the meantime, good luck

13. Sorry I'd forgotten about this...

As it turns out I didn't lose my job altogether, just "transitioned" and "reorganized" into a less glamorous department with less glamorous responsibilities...But it's certainly better than the alternative!
