Just a note to say I am taking at least a  one year vacation from the JW-Archive and its successors starting this Sunday night, December 30, 2018.

I have been gathering data to write a series of Science Fiction Novels for over 30 years, and my wife will need the money after I go up the chimney.

Besides, I have been on for something like seven years, and it has evolved GREATLY from the silly pablum it started out as, so my irritant is no longer needed.

I will still get emails of course, when somebody posts something. 

If Robert A. Heinlein can turn out his masterpiece "Starship Troopers" in one week, on a typewriter ... and he did  ... while infuriated by Nikita Khrushchev banging his shoe on the table at the United Nations, I, with a word processor and Dragon Naturally Speaking voice to text software ought to, with practice, emulate that.

I intend to "write by the pound", six hours a day, five days a week.

I may even get up every morning, , and put on a suit and tie before sitting down at my workstations.

Hahahahahaa!

  Just kidding.

Do you really mean you are leaving us.  Does that mean we should shun you ?  Or have you been disfellowshipped from here ? Come on, what did you do wrong, what sin did you commit ? You couldn't be leaving of your own choice, it's not allowed you know. 

Sorry just my impression of the JW Org coming through there. 

Bye then have fun :)
