Farewell fellow PFers

  1. Dec 16, 2005 #1
    Today is my last day at work and, since I really only PF on my employer's time, my last day as a (fairly) active member of this community. I will no doubt still use PF from time to time for specific queries, but alas I will not be around to enjoy the gay banter of the great people on this site. And I'll probably forget my password.

    Talking of whom, my thanks, admiration, hugs, etc for the help, the welcome, the laughs and the P&WA soapbox go the following:

    Lori, for the welcome and taking me under her wing and guiding me through my PF initiation;

    Ambitwistor, for the help and telling me get Feynman's lectures... good advice (odd that you don't post anymore, but you DO PM...);

    Patrick, for the patience, good will and dark, dark humour... you've given me lots to think about;

    Zoobyshoe, for the laughs above all, but also for being an all-round great person and for suffering my drunken PMs;

    Danger, aptly named - you kill me. Well done on a well-deserved merit!

    Artman, for the laughs and posting so many captions you made my initial entries look positively reserved (but unlike mine, yours are funny);

    Honestrosewater, you are an inspiration! And filthy with it! I'll miss you loads;

    Math Is Hard, didn't get to know you well, which is a shame because of late you've cracked me up. And you share similar filthiness qualities with Rose;

    Physics Monkey, another generous guy - thanks for your recent help;

    fi, who knows, I might bump into you in Oz! If not, have a great time and thanks for all your priceless advice;

    arildno, who shares my love of bad innuendo - I'll miss pushing the limits of PF cleanliness with you;

    Anttech, who shares my love of political satire;

    Astronuc, the moral centre of this great community and an inspiration - another well-deserved award;

    And, of course, Greg for a great site that has attracted a great community.

    It was my leaving do last night so I'm a wee bit hungover, so don't be offended if I robbed you of a deserved thank you - my head is just a bit foggy.

    I'm going travelling for three or four months (hey, maybe I can post some pictures?), then... I don't know what, before resuming my studies next year.

    To all, a merry Christmas and a happy new year!!!

    Thanks Mk. I hope you have a great one! Thanks also to a few people who've helped me tremendously but I omitted from the above list: Andrew Mason; ohwilleke; masudr; jtbell; pmb_phy and allday. All of you have helped me overcome the limitations of my fwagile little mind.

    Have a great time traveling...find some internet cafes and visit with tales of your journeys! You can't just leave because of some lame excuse like not having internet access! :cry: The caption competition thread will seem lonely without you. :frown:

    Happy Holidays!

    Yeah, this individual naming thing isn't working.


    I love you guys!

    Cheers! Yes, I must make one more visit to the caption competition... for old times sake!

    Have a holly jolly xmas!

    Happy Holidays.
    I hope this means a better employment opportunity for you.
    Not that I know anything about the last but that's what I generally hope when people leave their jobs.

    Another missing PFer from my list! Sorry Ape - it's been great knowing you! I have no future employment plans, so I am quite possible insane. I just quit so I could go travelling. I'll cross the what-the-hell-am-i-going-to-do-for-money bridge when I get to it.

    You're always good for a different (and funny) take on the captions thread, we'll do our best to keep it going for you. Enjoy the travels and don't be a stanger.

    That sounds like fun. I've known a couple people who got the On The Road bug. Personally I have always thought it would be great to do but I'm too chicken.

    You did? Thanks mate! And of course as the starter of the caption competition thread, a second home for me, and a fellow contributor thereof, I thank thee most highly sir. It's been great knowing you. We've had some good laughs. I'm going to miss so many people [sniff].

    That book was a huge inspiration for me. The bulk of the trip will be a road trip around Australia - something I decided on shortly after reading that great, great book.

    Thanks doc! Yes, if and when I pop back in for any reason, I hope to see that thread still on the first page of GD. Take care of yourself.
