After more than 1500 posts on this board, I recently decided to leave WebmasterWorld. Life is a sequence of ongoing changes and I concluded that my future and that of WebmasterWorld have too little in common to stay here as a frequent poster.
There is no reason for :(, I prefer :), I am not dying, just moving.
I will be starting some huge off-line projects in a few weeks, which are almost impossible to combine with frequently visiting this community and which also don't have much in common with webmastering. One is building the dream house for my wife and children. It is what you can call a real brick and mortar activity.
Most of these activities will take place on a location on this planet where I am often happy to just read my emails a few times a week. Being part of an on-line community is almost impossible with the bad internet connectivity I am facing in that remote place. I may be lurking now and then, but participating in threads which requires frequent reading and posting is unfortunately no option.

RonPK: LOL! Our house will be between two mountain ridges. Not even in their worst dreams they will consider to use our area as an emergency Soyuz landing zone. But on clear evenings we can see the launches from where we live. The fireball of the rocket heading to the east is visible at more than 500 km distance. You must be a real hero to sit on top of that in a small capsule.
I will probably follow Marcia's advice, and drop a post in Foo now and then.
