Well, I'm almost out of here. This is likely to be one of my last posts after 10+ years.

Things change and people move along and there's not much reason to stop in seeing as my enthusiasm for the event itself has been on the wane for some time now. I guess the last straw was the very disingenuous bullshit explanation/reason/rationale by the BORG for the upcoming personal vehicle fee. That's another topic altogether which I'm sure by now is a dead horse well beaten. Still,this one issue sums up the direction that I believe the event is taking that I don't want to be a part of. Namely, treating your customer base like they're idiots while you blow smoke up their collective asses and call it rose water. Expect to see more of this hypocrisy-infused Orwellian Newspeak in the future. But I digress.

Anyway, it was a good run here while it lasted and I'd be lying if we (Badger and I) didn't admit to enjoying a great deal of it most of the time.

Yeah, I'm headed the same way, I think. Certainly not going in 2014.
It's been good to know you, Iso. And Badger, too, if you'd pass that message along.

On the evil networking site. LeChat is toying with the idea of attending this year. Dave, I believe, has reached his limit. Dick should be there.

mdmf007?

He still shows up, now and then.

this post makes me sad.
I've never been shredded as well, or seen same as having been thrown into an "Iso-demeaner". you and Badger, helped in my initiation. Thanks, for all the times radioactive and otherwise.

A sad day. No-one has ever been as good at the pithy-putdown, nor had such incredibly strong bullshit meter as you. Be well indeed.

Iso, you have been one of my favorites. I'd always hoped to meet one of you one day. I have missed both of you guys. We (or some variation of we) will be here if you ever want to pop in and smack us around a bit.

When you look at lot of posts on this forum, there is a tendency (at least for me) to skip over some of them as they might contain just the usual blather. Never did I skip over one of Iso's posts. They always raked someone or something and were usually hilarious but also spot on. And the Avatar is priceless. All the best.

You know, that's exactly right (about Iso posts).
Bob ("the couch") posts were like that too.
I feel about the same as them but haven't got the same talent to pull it off like they did.
Trilobyte could do it if he were meaner. Give him a few more years to become a disgruntled disillusioned jaded old timer and he'll be awesome :)

He does seem to hibernate for a long while.

Or maybe Trilo killed him and buried him in the burningman parking lot...
