    Handing over the reigns

    I've been absent from this site recently due to some changes in my professional life. These changes are all positive on the whole, but have dramatically reduced the amount of time I can devote to running a website/forum, and another step change is likely to occur in the middle of this year. I could keep paying the bills and check in occasionally, but I think MSS is deserving of an owner/admin who can remain more engaged and active.

    Effective today, I have handed control of the site to Al (AL9000). He is managing the hosting, and I will transfer the domain to him ASAP. It'll take us a little bit to handle some other transition activities, but it's nothing huge.

    I greatly appreciate Al taking on this responsibility. I'll be happier knowing that Al is at the wheel and sheparding things along, rather than feeling that I'm neglecting a continuing obligation.

    I'll still be around when I can be. Thanks to all of you who have helped to build MSS.

    Thanks, Adam for all your hard work getting this community started and I appreciate the opportunity to take the wheel. It is an awesome responsibility that I won't take lightly.

    BigAL!

    I still can't believe it took me that long to figure that out!

    "You need the right tool for the right job." For this job, Al is definitely the tool for it.

    Adam: [playing chess with AL, Adam studies the chessboard] Let's see, king... anyway, Queen takes Pawn. Okay?
    AL: Bishop takes Knight's Pawn.
    Adam: Huh, lousy move. Um, Rook to King 1.
    AL: I'm sorry, Adam, I think you missed it. Queen to Bishop 3, Bishop takes Queen, Knight takes Bishop. Mate.
    Adam: Huh. Yeah, it looks like you're right. I resign.

    Thank you to Adam for taking an ideal that many of us shared and taking action (I'm sure more than many of us realize)to make it a reality. Good luck with your expanding success!

    Thank you to Al for accepting the challenge and ushering the community into the next phase. Knowing Al, I'm sure it will be a zealous and fruitful development. Keep it up, bud!
