And now our shining warrior has decided to step down from the lime-light, to reap a well deserved rest.

So let's raise our glasses into Salute:

To Integral!
Salute!!!!!!

(but in reality he has become more powerful) He's like Obi-Wan Kenobi when he raises his lightsaber to allow Darth Vader to kill him, except the only thing remaining is his robe. He becomes part of the force.

I've been here since the "Early Days", not as long as some of you, but long enough to remember PF as it once was. They were rough times.
I'll say. Integral was already the Physics Mentor when I got here in 2002, but I remember that his predecessor was a raging crank.

I don't know...I just went hunting for phrases to be said with toasts; supposedly they are the equivalent to "cheers" or "to your health" but since I don't know most of those languages, I just had to hope I got the right phrases.

it is worth gold if you know that many languages.

Hey Integral, do you realize that people are trying to give you the clap?

I'd run away very quickly if I were you. :)

I wish...on both accounts! I'm working toward that salary, slowly but surely (actually, the one nifty thing I've discovered about academics is that although you start out grad school with a stipend that even WalMart workers would pity, it increases by leaps and bounds as you move up the ranks; when you get raises, they are substantial).

Though, as I was tracking down those phrases, I did realize I knew quite a few of them...apparently I can drink in many languages, I just never knew how to spell any of them! I'm character challenged too, so if any of them require diacritical marks to be correctly spelled (like umlauts), I can't include those (one of the few downsides to posting from a Mac; the codes just don't work).

So, when do we throw the retirement party for Integral and the inaugural ball for ZZ? Hey, wait, we still haven't had an inaugural ball for Gokul either! *chants* Party! Party! Party! Party! Party! Party!

I think it's the best time to hold a party for Integral because of his semi-retirement and his birthday!

Happy Birthday Integral!

Has no one said that Integral has been an integral part of PF?
Seriously, how can you pass that up?
