Rob, in the 15+ years I've known you I can't say there is a more gutsy thing you've done than what you're doing today. You are a man of tremendous creative intellect, and I think you'll have a great time finding something new to build. I'm looking forward to many more adventures.
I have no doubt Slashdot will be your "first big thing". Hell, when I drop your name around Makerworks, you're better known as "the guy who built that awesome MAME cabinet".
