end of an era

Several long standing members of our team left on Friday.

Shaun. What can I say about Shaun? He supported me when others wouldn't. I doubt that I would have had the opportunities I've had without him. I owe him many thanks. I learnt a lot from working with him.

Paul. What can I say about Paul? I can say that he hates plurals and doesn't like grammar. But he is an excellent team leader and has the respect of many. Yes, including me. He's gone to Brisbane for a change. Good luck.

Eddie. What can I say about Eddie? I can say that his knowledge is formidable. He was the go-to guy for the Dev team. I'm sorry to see him go, but it was his time. I wish him well.

Geoff. GT, you were not here long, but you were well liked. I was amazed to find out that you were in a Disco band. Good stuff. I hope that you enjoy your new job and I look forward to working with you again.

I will miss them all. They were a great bunch of guys. I wish them well in the new endeavours, and look forward to crossing paths with them again.

There are several others leaving at the end of June. I'll leave the teary farewells for them until then.

Thanks John for those kind words. Brisbane is going well I am working for Technology Effect, great buck of people.

Unfortunately we brought the cold weather with us, it was -1 at Brisbane airport last night, which I was told was a record low.
