Last hooray

This will be my final post on the Oxford servers.  As of today I have accepted voluntary redundancy and so will be leaving the company.  Because of this I have been migrating most of my posts to a different server and now, with them almost all up I would like to thank all my readers and everyone that helped out.  I will continue on with libresource at and I would love for people to continue reading.

Anyway thanks for all the entries,
