I hear you Pat, and I am with you (even though my voice probably isn't worth much here or anywhere else for that matter). I am relived to hear that you will not leave the forum totally but "just" resign from your moderating duties. Your collecting and advice here on the forum has allways been an inspiration to me.
Tell you what. Drop me a mail when you'll come over here and I will do my best to meet up with you and buy you a couple of beers.
