    being a mod on a site is a lot more work and way more time consuming than what a lot of people think, i for one am happy for you being able to just sit back and enjoy the forums, enjoy "civilian" life

    Thanks for the votes of confidence!

    Thank you all. It is a sad thing when something that you really enjoy turns into a "job" and spoils the enjoyment. Been there, done that. I hope the change brings back the enjoyment.

    Thanks for your great work, Tim. From what I have seen of John on here, the torch has been passed very well. Thanks to John for taking on mod duties.

    I know the Mod's have a tough job, and Slowhike thank you for your dedication and hard work, you will be missed. John Sawyer I know you will do a great job, just from reading your posts. You can tell a lot about a person from what they write. Good luck to you both.

    First Congrat's to John, I am sure you will do your best!

    Second, Slowhike, I have to say that my short and limited encounters with you have always been a pleasure, you have a calming way about you that just fit as a Mod! While I completely understand your reasoning, and wish you the best, you should know that you also left a wonderful impression on how Moderators can/should be viewed (nothing against the rest of ya, so don't take it personal)!

    Take care,

    CB
