    Ralph, Not you too! Or was that an OK to the Joe in the commercial? Joel

    Joel, Good luck in whatever you choose to do. I know I, for one, will miss your column. Jeff

    Hi Jeff, Thanks! As I mentioned in the column, there are a number of things I'll miss, particularly hearing sentiments like yours. Thanks again! Joel

    I have 3 spam filters. Two do light filtering and delete any spam they find. The third does heavier filtering, but puts the flagged spam into a spam folder. I just found a note in there thanking me for my columns. I don't know if the other two spam filters deleted any similar notes. So, if you sent me an email and I didn't respond, please accept my apologies. I do appreciate the sentiment even if I didn't actually see it. Then again, if you sent me an email to tell me that you're glad to see the end of my columns ... never mind

    Thanks for the laughs. I especially appreciate your fluency in the languages of sarcasm and irony. -- DaveSlash

    Dave, I hope you don't mind if I get informal and call you Dave rather than "DaveSlash". You're entirely welcome. Thanks back to you for your generous words. All the best. Joel

    Joel! Sorry to see you go! Ahhh Impermanence. Also have enjoyed my trips up to Toronto and IBM-Toronto as well. Try the French Eastern Canadian restaurant downtown: Le Papillon. Try "la Tourtourelle Quebecoise" no it's not just meatloaf but a subtle meatpie beyond this world, beyond the black flies! Thank you especially for pointing out the limitations of technology. As the world's oil decline in output gains momentum, we will definitely have to work smart. Maybe fewer toys, more smarts. Or maybe tools that actually work! Thank you Joe, I'm trained. john.decoville@co.pinal.az.us

    Joel, Thank you also for your mention of Victoria Mack who wonder of wonders allowed me to post a rant. We desperately need investigative journalism in the IBM world and Victoria has been telling IBM and getting others to tell IBM things they don't want to hear. --John

    Hi John, As I said in the column, in a number of ways, I'm sorry to go. (although in other ways, such as the burnout I was suffering, I'm definitely not). Thanks for your note. About Le Papillon, I'm quite familiar with it. Just one word of advice: On Mothers' Day it has a terrific buffet brunch (it used to have the buffet every Sunday, but it stopped that). There is one section of the restaurant that is a single step up from the section with the buffet table. If you're ever there for the buffet with an octogenarian, you might be advised to insist on a table in the same section as the buffet or to remind the octogenarian about the step. If I had done so, my mother might have avoided an ambulance ride to the hospital to fix the hip she broke (hers, just in case there was any doubt; she's not into breaking other people's hips) when she tripped on the step. To be clear, it wasn't the restaurant's fault at all and the people were wonderful about it. I recommend Le Papillon to anyone in or visiting Toronto ... just watch out for that step. Joel

    John, As I suggested in the article, working with Victoria was probably the best part of the gig. Re Victoria, to anyone out there reading this: If you have something that fits withing MC Press' editorial mandate that you think needs to be said and you consider yourself to be a decent writer, I'd highly recommend contacting Victoria about writing an IMHO column. I can pretty much guarantee that you will enjoy working with her and that your writing will improve as a result of the application of her editing skills. I have and mine did. Joel

    I have a great deal of email coming in, and it is only the MC Press with a Tech Tip that would guarantee an immediate opening. Not for the tip, but for your column. I have enjoyed them all. Your last column may inspire a change in my life. As I am a confirmed procrastinator, I seldom do many of the things I think about doing. Writing this note of appreciation could have been put off until too late, but because of you and your columns, I could not put it off. Thanks for it all Joel.

    Aw shucks, now you're just swelling my head. Thanks for that! Victoria has found some great authors to contribute to the space that I monopolized for more than two years and then shared with some terrific writers for the past six or seven months, so please keep reading MC TNT and the other MC Press publications. (And I understand that Victoria is also looking for more authors, so if you consider yourself to be a good writer and have something to say that fits with MC Press' editorial content, please don't procrastinate over contacting her.) Joel
