I never thought I would have the ego to start an entire thread about my impending disappearance. Well, say hello to my ego :P

So, I'm leaving. I'm actually leaving, as I am moving several states away for a great new job. I will be working pretty much all day every day this summer, so I can guarantee I won't be around. After that, I don't know how much free time I'll have, or how much net access I'll have. And there's always the possibility that three months away from this place will make me realize how much happier I am without it :P

So, I may or may not be back.

I was going to make some kind of witty departing comment on Slarty vs. Desk, but haven't had time to come up with one and am rather busy moving out right now.

Instead, here is my last will and testament. I, Slarty, hereby will:
- my stupid, pointless, but nonetheless incisive analogies to Dikiyoba
- my inane, pointless, but nonetheless correct analysis of game mechanics to DeVlish and SoT
- User:Slarty to Aran and Drakey -- get cracking!
- a humble one-line signature, to Aran and Magma
- a life, to Tyro and Marl, who will need it now that they can't spend their evenings stalking me on the telephone
- a thesaurus, to Alec and TM, who could stand to spruce up their cybering
- the foot in my mouth, to Salmon and Dareva, with love

I'll be back this evening to mop up all the tears.

Bye, Slarty.

Hope you return soon!

Good luck with your new work!

We all miss you!

Before sleeping, in your bed, think some others GF theoryes! :)

I'll take care of your sig while you are away, I swear! :cool:

(I would give you a *facepalm*, but I promised... :P )

*sniff*

That is all. ;)

EDIT: New sig. :)

Well, so long and take care! I am saddened, but not overly surprised. And I expect you to be gone for a while now. After all, people whose appellation starts with "S" have had some recent success in staying away.

May the Nine-Headed Cave Cow be with you.

Thank you. Dikiyoba will take good care of them until your return.

Farewell, Slartucker. You livened up this place with your acid wit, and if you had stayed another year, you would be counted among those who have been here "forever".

The Encyclopedia might cope without you eventually, but not well.

I hope that you have internet access from your new place very soon and that you will miss this place as much as you will be missed.

(*wipes tears* :P )

Edit: One line sig! At least it was until I added the MoS link...

See ya Slarty, and have fun in your new job.

May the incessant lure of the fluffy turtles forever pull you back to the boards whenever you get the chance.

... hello ego.

Crap. The last vestiges of hope for a new Slarty vs. Desk comic have disappeared. Oh, well. Good luck with the new job, and may you return in glory.

Farewell and good luck with the new job, Slarty. You will be missed until our goldfish attention spans are distracted by something shiny. But then you can distract us back with a triumphant return!

Although I don't know you really well, since I just got here (I hope it wasn't me to frighten you off :) ), but I still got your (as I believe quite very famous) "*facepalm*".
So seeing you must really like me :) , I bid you a nice farewell and wish you luck with your job.

Au revoir, mon ami. I must admit, I was kind of harboring some hope for a continuation of Slarty vs. Desk, and was disappointed to see it hadn't changed in my rather long absence. I wish you luck with whatever you do, mainly because I consider having enough free time to come back to Spiderweb 'lucky'.

Have you no shame?

Polaris

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

Although I have absolutely nothing useful to say I feel that I must at least bid you good-bye. So good luck with life and all that and I hope things work out.

Congratulations with getting a job you like. This place will be less lively without you.
