turvy (Fetch me my trousers Geoffrey...)

Yes... all the above and more. I may not be the longest serving (just over 9 years and how it has changed!) and I have been a bit intermittent but I will miss the BBC and all you Eds and Italics.

Power up the Flux Capacitors Marty...

RadoxTheGreen - Retired

Thanks for everything Eds, you've done a fantastic job steering us to our new home.smiley - bubblysmiley - cakesmiley - cakesmiley - bubblysmiley - cheerssmiley - alesmiley - ale

By the way, I'd like to add http://www.anyneed.net to the list of sites to remember.
In fact, if you're not blocked from visiting games sites, it could save you remembering all the various h2g2 move-related locations as they are all linked from the menus on every one of the site pages.

It's not an official h2g2 site, just something I've put up to give you some more fun during the downtime, and the run up to it, but it's easy to find all the Hootoo information and forum sites from it (and it'll give the Eds something to do on their coffee break).smiley - cheers

Dear h2g2 Editors,

It has been a pleasure working with you from the congratulatory email you sent me on the occasion of my first-ever EGE all the way through the bid for, and sale and transfer of h2g2.

If you are ever in my neck of the woods, please don't hesitate to drop by for a smiley - ale or smiley - redwine.

All the best,

smiley - smiley
Happy Nerd

MMF - Keeper of Mustelids, with added P.M.A., is now in a relationship.

I accidentally discovered h2g2 through work.

After a number of years I was caught and nearly lost my job.

So what has that to do with the Eds?

Well. I've met them, like a number of hootoozens, and found they are human, approachable, but most of all, dedicated, within the Broken Biscuit Company's smiley - handcuffs and have kept me going.

I'm still inspired, have projects on a rolling boil, And they replaced my enamel badge, that I lost on my first intercontinental Meet.

Thanks for helping us keep D.N.A.'s original idea alive, and helping with the transition.

I seriously hope it is not goodbye, but hi and will visit us in our New Home.

smiley - bubblysmiley - cake and smiley - lurk

And see you in the new place. You know you are always welcome.

And you are now free to attend Meets with no smiley - handcuffs

smiley - somersault

smiley - kisssmiley - hug and best wishes.

Pierce The Pirate ~ out of Hotblack Desiato mode again ~

Leaving the BBC throws a shadow over my 40th anniversary (October 1st 1971 was my first day as a journalist apprentice) smiley - cry

But as others have pointed out this need not be a goodbye to all you nice people w*rking for Auntie Beeb. Join us in our new home - or at least stop by from time to time to say hello and have a nice cup of smiley - tea and a chat

Maybe even a bottle of rum smiley - cheers

smiley - ta for now
