A Special Announcement

Please come back on Tuesday, April 6, 2010 for an exciting announcement.

I have a new job. I gave notice last Friday and told my co-workers on Monday. I will miss my old employer; they’ve treated me well and given me interesting work. However, my new employer offers new challenges for me (technical challenges at work) and my family (we’re moving from one state to another). We’re all sad to be leaving our familiar and comfortable lives, but excited by the prospects for new experiences.

Unfortunately, this means goodbye for my blog. I have a lengthy list of urgent tasks; to transfer my responsibilities and knowledge to my current colleagues, to relocate across the country, and to come up to speed with my new employer. I’m starved for time and too distracted to continue to write for you. I can’t guarantee to never post another entry, but it seems most likely.

The Internet is littered with inactive blogs, and some observers scorn the authors who stop writing. That seems a little unfair. True, there are single entry blogs, but there are also blogs that are more or less complete. If I were to write a textbook on Peoplesoft and SQR, nobody would complain that it was finite. I think I’ve written just about everything I had to say. This blog was an adventure in self-expression and an effort to benefit my fellow Peoplesoft specialists. I have completed the first and I hope I’ve achieved the second.

Thank you for reading.

    Let me guess: you’re giving away $1 million to the most frequent commenter on your blog, assuming his identity can be verified.

  2. administrator says:

    Since I’ve replied to almost every comment, that would be me.

  3. Bob Josephson says:

    Good luck in the new job. I’m sure I speak for all your readers when I say we’re sorry to see you go.

  4. Yvonne Hogan says:

    Thank you for leaving us with so much valuable information.

    Good luck with your new job.
    Maybe one day, you may feel a need to cathart and spew forth more interesting information that you didn’t know you had….(smile)

    Hi Steve,

    Hope all is well with you and yours. I’m just looking for some SQR date formatting tips and thought of your blog.

    Take Care,
