I'm really not sure if folks here would be sad to see me go or not. Maybe they'd just be thankful that I'm no longer polluting the threads with my presence, or more likely not really care much one way or the other.

The short of it is that I think I need a break from online communities in general. My grandfather's had a heart attack and his heart's just not strong enough for surgery. We're not sure how long he's got and we're all sort of taking time to say our goodbyes.

I'll probably be back eventually though. As soon as I'm capable of being sociable again.
