Subject line says it all.

As you posted, all is good. When one door closes another opens...just hope the closing door didn't hit you in the, well, you know.

Hmm, the subject line didn't take -

"Welcome back" and "Sad to see you leave."

I changed it to 'Subject line says it all.'. Hope that is ok.

Having worked under the former regime at LXer, I have a fair idea of the work you put into your job. I have to be honest, the full page Microsoft ads that you had to close from time to time got a bit annoying but hey, if MS wants to pay for a Linux new site...take the signed check I say.

Now I have to change my keynote.,...to former editor of Linux Today...you're killin' me here.

Same here, Carla. I always enjoy your straight-up, honest expression in your posts. I sincerely hope that this provides a more pleasant, more enjoyable opportunity.

Carla, the FOSS journalism beat is a tough one. Write more books (yeah, I know that's tougher, but ...)

I've enjoyed both Linux Today, and your presence there, Carla - but remember what the Eagles said about writing about Open Source: "You can check out, but you can never leave!". Er - wait...

Thanks everyone! Freedom feels good, it does. I'm starting up my own publishing company to publish my own books, and a pleasing number of freelance gigs are landing on my lap. It sure does feel good to be valued as a writer again. That was in short supply back in PHB-land.

Publishing yourself is the way to go - more meat, more profit!

Amazon has a killer price on the Audacity book - my order is on the way.

For non american speakers:

wikipedia:

Dilbert

Much of the humor emerges as the audience sees the characters making obviously ridiculous decisions that are natural reactions to mismanagement.

Thanks Carla, for letting us know.

Wish you the best.
