I haven't read /. for a number of was getting depressing in a variety of ways. So yesterday I thought i'd check in and see what was cooking and discovered that Cmdr Taco was leaving. I remembering discovering this new site 'Slashdot' and the witnessing first-hand the notorious 'Slashdot effect'. I remember being surprised at that everyone from hackers to Phd's were posting on the site. It was amazing. I remember reading Rob's proposal and I sit here stunned to learn that he now has two kids. In a way, Rob is lucky to have had a 15year career in this industry. A good chunk of us have had several by this time. And it's good that Cmdr Taco is leaving...on his own terms, a time of his choosing. Many of us have not had that luxury. Good luck what whatever new endeavours you try sir! Many of us will be watching in the wings waiting to see what you come up with!

Quoting Prince: 'The internet's like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can't be good for you.'"
