    So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

    I originally got involved with vBulletin as one of the initial beta testers, way back in March/April 2000. I started writing some modifications for the vB 1.1 series (the member list and the PM system came from my code originally), and at the end of 2000, I was brought on to help with development of vB 2.0. Aside from a short period where I focused on my university studies, I've been involved in vB's development since then. Many of you probably know that I even relocated from the US to the UK 3 years ago to work with Kier, Scott, and Ashley in person.

    However, I've decided that it's time for me to move on and pursue other goals.

    I'd like to thank Jelsoft for giving me the opportunity to work on vBulletin. Generally, it's been a good 9 years. I've learned more things in that time than I could have imagined, and being able to see my work all over the internet in the shape of your websites is a very cool feeling indeed.

    I'm sure you'll still be able to find me online. I try to stay involved with the PHP community, and a few vB'ers have already found me on Twitter... though I should get more involved with both.

    So to borrow a famous line, so long and thanks for all the fish.
