Well I did it! I finally "wore out my welcome" here at WebmasterWorld! :)
Seriously, I turn 56 in a few days and the doctor said "Slow down!" Just because of a few chest pains... and that was five weeks ago doc... "SLOW DOWN!" he insists. Getting old stinks, but so far, it beats the alternative.
I've asked Brett to take me off staff and I plan to reduce my workload as well. I also intend to continue lurking about as a member, at least when the doc isn't looking.
