My reign of terror is over
« on: October 18, 2018, 03:37:17 PM »
TheSwamp and all its belongings is now, or soon will be, in the hands of John Kaul (Se7en). A few weeks ago I asked John if he would like to have this place and he accepted. I could not be happier. Hopefully John can add some excitement to this place again.

I am still an admin here, Johns choice not mine, for a little while longer. John has been basically running this place for the past 6-8 months.

Please direct all hate mail to John from here on. :-)

Thanks for all you've done to keep this valuable resource going.  Glad you found a suitable (and willing) replacement.

Thank you Mark for all you have done for this community, you definitely deserve a break!

I'd say that The Swamp is the best community of its type and that is due to the man behind the wheel all these years. It has been your vision, willingness to help, persistence, patience, integrity, time, investment and I'm sure many other personal sacrifices you've had to make to keep this place alive. Then there's the cyclones, shovels and other challenges you have had to deal with :)

In short, you're a legend Mark and I wish you well in your future endeavors.

Thank you very much, sir! You are the one who set the tone for the place and the reason it is the best of its kind. I do hope you still hang around and chime in more frequently than not.

Thank you Mark for creating this fantastic community for us to all hang our hats for the past years, Im guessing its not always been easy. The help, friendship and fun I have had here has been immeasurable. You have truly created a unique place.  I wish you all the very best with whatever you do going forward. As Mick said, you are a legend :)

Thank you John for taking the place over and keeping the place running!  I wish you all the very best in continuing to keep this place the friendly, helpful community it has grown into.
Thanks for explaining the word "many" to me, it means a lot.

Thank you very much Mick. I think 'legend' is a bit much. :)

Thank you Michael. That means a lot.

I do hope you still hang around and chime in more frequently than not.
I'm not going any where. I still do CAD 40 hours a week. :) I don't program anymore, to speak of.

Thanks to everyone else for the positive remarks. I appreciate it.
