Dear friends, the year comes to a close and that means it's time for me to come out from behind the curtain and let someone else have some fun being a moderator. For the past (nearly) 5 years, I can't say that I've enjoyed every minute of it but I can't think of a better way to have spent all of that time. I hope I've done the forum a service. I know that when I started, I had no idea that TB and the Setup forum would be what it is now. For that I'm proud and for Paul's confidence, even in the trying times, I'm grateful. That I've been deemed worthy to be associated with TalkBass will always be a favorite feather in my cap of great experiences. I'm not leaving so this isn't goodbye. I'll be around and I'll be pretty much the same - only better. Like NEW and IMPROVED! only without the suds.
