Yep. This is not a drill. I guess this is a good place to ask questions that I will answer as best I can.

    Sorry @Tube didn't see this as I made my post.

    I'm downright shocked!

    @Robert Khoo I hope you have the best of times doing whatever is next. You're so good to us, and I am sure you will be great to others too.

    Hey Khoo?

    You don't know me much, if at all, and most of these other buncha jerks around here you likely don't know from Adam.

    But the shit you did around PA and the community you helped build meant a whole bunch to me, and I'm willing to bet cold cash that I'm not alone.

    So basically -- thanks.

    honestly I'm rather worried... I know he said a while back he wasn't planning on doing PA forever, but this seems so sudden.

    I hope everything is in place for someone to take over his role... but tbh he's kinda irreplacable.

    So many questions! Is this effective immediately, or is he still going to be around for awhile? Is someone already lined up to replace him? Are they hiring someone new? Multiple people? Or just dividing up his superhuman job between 3 or 4 people?
