HI all,

I've decided to take a break from this site, I don't know how long I'll be away maybe a few weeks maybe longer. I will respond to any site outages that is reported to me, but for now, this is where I take my leave and hopefully my passion for the site returns because at the moment I have none.

Hope all members are well and hopefully see you around.

Fats

Rest up, and dream of feats of spectacular strength. :)

See you again when you're refreshed!

What can I say?
Not much, but I'd like to point out one thing: Fats has not only being amazingly skilled in keeping this site online for so long, but also in dealing with many problems behind the scenes.

Until he returns, guys, please let's keep the place as tidy as possible and don't screw up!

Until further notice any problem with the Library should directed to me via PM or email and I think Fivered is going to deal with most of forum issues, within the limits of our abilities.

I understand. Been there several times myself when I ran my own site. Best thing is to take a sabbatical and see how you feel after. Sometimes it helps. Sometimes not.

Hopefully you'll return because we will miss you.

In every club that I have ever belonged to it is always 5 to 10 percent of the folks who do 90 plus percent of the work. No difference here. I think Winston Churchill said it best when he said, "Never have so many, owed so much to so few." Enjoy your vacation FATS. You have earned it and I sincerely hope that a vacation is all this interlude turns out to be.

That 5 to 10% rule applies to most human endeavors.

This is also one reason we like successful sports teams so much. On a good team, a large majority of the people are doing exceptional work. That is incredibly rare.

Hopefully Fats will recharge and wish to return down the road. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say we will miss him while he's away.

I understand. Stepping back and taking a break to recharge the batteries and take a think is helpful. Sometimes you come back with renewed vigor and sometimes you want to explore a different path.
