The End

A week without jokes and nobody noticed :-(

This blog has been going since Feb 2003. It contains over 1600 entries (mainly jokes), almost 1000 (non-spam) comments and has seen more than 200,000 visitors.

It has been difficult to keep it going with all my other activities. For a while Peskie tried to keep it running but both he and I have had a lot of trouble getting into mu.nu to do normal maintenance. At least 50% of the time the admin access has been unavailable.

As a result, I have decided to give up for the time being. Maybe this can be resurrected in the future, maybe not. Either way I am still around and you can contact me via email. I am also part of LinkedIn so regular readers can connect that way as well....

I just figured you were as buried in work and in life as everyone else seems to be. For what it is worth, I linked you in. Best of luck for the future, whatever you decide.

Can't let you leave without saying I'll miss you.

I missed you - but I failed to follow up! Hope this break is only temporary, it has been useful for keeping up with you folk. Work has also interfered with any other activity!

Darn it anyway. Only yesterday I thought to myself, "gee, I really miss Oz and our (email)(blog) conversations. I have to catch up with him!" And
now this. Well I'll be the first to say I understand how it goes; I've been contemplating the same myself recently, though it would be difficult given my penchant for posting my bird photos... but HEY! You stopped me from STOPPING blogging, so I should do the same to you, but I won't, cuz I know you. You wouldn't stop if you didn't feel it necessary. I hope you'll drop me a line or two every so often. Will miss you lots!

I would have missed them more if I hadn't been so far behind in my blog reading as was away last weekend...

My daddy taught me to be patient, so I was patiently waiting for your newest jokes. I understand the need to use your time for other things. Hope you can find some time here and there for a few laughs. Always a pleasure to read sir, Linc
