I have an announcement that is sure to gratify a few on this list.

Today I was given a project that will consume most of my time. In fact,
after I post this message and wolf down some dinner I have to get back to
the lab to finish a purification protocol.

Anyways, that means I'll no longer have the time I used to to devote to the
level of participation that I have been maintaining lately. In fact, from
now on I'll barely have time to read what I get, much less reply to it.

Don't everyone cheer at once.

But don't get the wrong idea; I'm not leaving the list. For one thing I
still owe Mark Phillips a reply on an earlier discussion (which I hope to
send off this weekend; however, Stan and Brian can have the last word in our
respective discussions if they wish). For another, I'll still be monitoring
the messages, so I may make a comment or two on occasion. But I won't be
able to engage in any more long debates like I have in the past.

I hope everyone's not too disappointed.

(Seriously, though, it's been fun; thanks for the stimulating debate.)
