Well, it's been an interesting past few years, however in the last 6 months or so I've really started to get stuck into life, working almost full time, and this year I'm looking at going back and studying engineering as well. Even with just work, I've found it difficult to make time to moderate the forum, and didn't feel it was fair on the other mods to be taking up my slack, so I've stepped down.

I won't be leaving the forum, I just simply don't have the extra time to put into moderating, so I felt someone else with a bit more time would be better.

Hope everyone has a great 2014 :)

Dan

What a strange sight to see.

Who is going to fill the Aussie timezone as a mod now? :D

Thank you for letting us know Things :p

I think you should do what you feel is best for you and if this is what you have chosen I support it 100%. Best of luck in your career and/or wherever life takes you! :)

+1 just out of randomness!

Yep, still remember the time you sent me the PS3 405nm diode for my first DIY laser (still owe you something for that :D ). Very few of the original members left now :(

As for the next mod, I've given a couple of suggestions but it's up to Ave :)

I think this was smart, I've done the working engineering student thing and it really doesn't leave you time to do much else. What engineering major are you considering?
