so long

Today is my last day at Sun Microsystems. It's been a good run. I've
been here for a little over nine years. I've filed about 949 bugs,
closed or fixed 604 (likely more), and I've been involved in a fair
number of projects, including PPP, PPPoE, RIP-2, SolarMAX, Quagga,
Kevlar/Zones, Rampart/TX, Zulu/LU, DHCPv6, NWAM, and RBridges.
I've been the PSARC chair on and off for many years, and even had a
tour of duty on the OGB. I haven't lacked for variety.

But it's time to move on. I have a new job and new challenges ahead
of me, and I'm excited to get started on it.

Many thanks to all those over the years who've given me help, clue,
and support. There are simply far too many of you to list.

Keep up the good work. I'm still an OpenSolaris user -- except for
the family Mac, everything I have runs it -- and I'm looking forward
to what develops in the future.

Comments:

You've left a large mark on Solaris, both its code and its community. You will be greatly missed.

Best of luck in your new adventure!

Sorry to see you go, you have left behind a great legacy in the OpenSolaris community though.

I will always appreciate what you have done.

Thanks James.

Sorry to see you go, you're one of the many engineers I've always admired and hoped someday would get a chance to work with on some project. Best of luck with the new job :)

When you said that you were Solaris Networking until Friday...didn't realize just how definitive you were being ;)

Best of luck and thanks for the help along the way...
