They say that all good things must come to an end. (Don't you hate messages
that start with "They say..."?)

I regret to announce that I will be resigning from DCTI after this weekend.
This was not an easy decision on my part, and I will miss working with the
staff and participants terribly. I'm truly amazed at how much I've learned
from working with the rest of the DCTI staff, as well as from hanging out in

In the end, it comes down to personal priorities. I've used this space more
than once to point out that we volunteers have personal lives. I finally
listened to my own advice and realized that any time I spend on DCTI is time
taken away from family, church, and work. There just isn't enough time left
after those three to give DCTI the time it deserves.

After this weekend, my bwilson at distributed.net account will be inactive or
forwarded to someone else. (I leave that up to them to decide.) I will probably
continue to run the client and go back to being a stats junkie with many of the
rest of you. That's what got me started in the first place, you know.

As always, I encourage any of you with ideas for projects, or with an
interest in helping out, or with coding/documenting skills to volunteer
and join up. The first step is to catch one of the current staff on
irc.distributed.net:#distributed and find out more.

It's been a fun ride, and I thank you all for the ways you've helped us to
succeed as an organization. I wish you all the best.

As always, keep those CPUs crunching...
