So long and thanks for all the fish!
A quick note to say goodbye. Today is my last day at the Reg having written almost 5,000 stories, and edited thousands more. I started in 2004 as one of three reporters in a small, grubby office in Brixton, south London. I leave a multi-tentacled organ with offices on Leicester Square, in San Francisco, New York and Sydney - and …
Breakfast beers -- hey, that sounds good. Not much work on this morning anyway. Off I go!
Here's one from me
The correct farewell would be 'I'm going outside; I may be awhile...'
Goodbye and good luck John, thanks for all the stories.
good fortune and take care.
good fortune and take cake.
Best for the future, now go enjoy a cold one and enjoy your extended Friday.
and the news stories

I hope you had fun and glad you got out alive!
Thanks for making el Reg with visitng.
Have fun, wherever you're going.

Oh do fuck off!

"opens at 9am, and has a full range of breakfast beers" - I'll drink to that!
All the best John, good luck in the future.
Goodbye, and come again anytime
...and don't be a stranger in the comments section.
Have some Friday enjoyment and good luck for the future.
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).
I wish you all the best and thanks for the past 7 years :)
May the Vulture be with you always.
Good luck to you, mine's a beer!
Have fun, and keep taking things no more seriously than they should be - "Breakfast beer"... I wish my local did that - it's all coffee and croissants these days :(
It hasn't been the same since Sarah left.
Cheers for the laffs :)
And hrrr. well, best of luck.
Good luck and all the best
Steve Jobs <- the one that affects me the least
WTF is this, musical chairs? Some sort of wind-up? The 1337 leaving with the aliens? Tell me it ain't so! ;o)
Good luck in your future endeavours, John.
Yup. Commentards get the "B" Ark
Red hats or blue?
Thanks, and hope you enjoy whatever it is you are going to.
Be honest, you guys are up to something, aren't you. It's too much of a coincidence.
Good luck, and to misquote Rick Blaine:
"You'll always have PARIS"
and good luck :)
Some cracking stories over the years. G'luck.
<-- You've probably had enough for now but feel free to put this aside for later.
First Jobs, then CmdrTaco bailed from Slashdot yesterday, now Oates....
Do they know something we don't?
All the very best for your next endevour. Hopefully you'll have more time to spend with your jalopy.

Sorry to see ya go John, your stories were always a good read. Good luck to ya, now get out :)
and best of luck
FFS, has Vulture Central installed a giant trampoline in its head office?!
Anyway, good luck John. You've always been the "body" to Lester's frothy "head". Just don't take *all* this place's spirit[s] with you.
And don't come back!
Have fun whatever you do after you sober up!
best of luck to ya
I've seen enough hentai to know where this is going...
Jonotsukidoji: Legend of the Register. You will be missed.

Don't get stuck in breakfast, though.
