Goodbye and good luck John, thanks for all the stories.
good fortune and take care.

Fair winds and following seas to you, you'll be missed.

of checking who wrote which article, but i have been enjoying el reg for many years now and that's due to all the people writing here (that, and the flamewars the mods allow us to have on here).

So long then.
And don't come back!
Ta and goodbye
