So long, Rob, and thanks for all the time and energy you've spent creating this wonderful community. There are only a few sites on the web that I read religiously, and Slashdot will always hold a special place among the nearest and dearest. For me, Slashdot is a little like a common room in a dorm, or the living room where good friends can get together to discuss the topics that mean the most to them; a true geek salon of ideas and dreams. Its a rare thing you have created here, and you should be proud of your accomplishment. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Best of luck to you and Kathleen and the boys, and I here's to hoping we'll never stop hearing from you on this thing we call the Internet.
