After a few extended blips of inactivity, I think it's time to make my almost complete departure from Wikipedia official. I will pop in from time to time to tidy things up, and I imagine the reference desk will get some bizarre inquiries (and more bizarre responses) from me in the future, but I'm too swamped with outside responsibilities at the moment to let anyone think I'm "active" here in any meaningful sense of that word. I have left some of you hanging on a few potentially great articles, I'm afraid, and I don't know that I'll ever be able to fully complete a number of things I wanted to get done, but that's how it goes sometimes.
If I ever caused anyone undue stress or made any particularly heinous accusation of malicious motives, I apologize. We did some cool things together, and most of you are awesome. Even if I didn't like you, chances are I enjoyed working with you or shooting the breeze at a talk page somewhere along the line. Please forgive me for my many mistakes, and do feel free to leave me a message or email me if you'd like my input on anything around here. I would like to commit to more, but that's not in the cards as far as I see. "C'est la vie; c'est la vas. Life goes on, bra..."
