I shall be absent on leave from Friday

  Forum Editor 18:25 11 Dec 2019

until after Christmas (although I shall look in on the forums from time to time while I'm away), so now would be a good time for me to say my usual Christmas thanks to all of you for supporting us in 2019. We have been online now for twenty years, and I still haven't tired of our daily discussions.

I hope you all have a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful new year. I look forward to joining you as we put the world to rights in 2020, but in the meantime my usual thanks go to those of you who spot the spam for me all year long - I really appreciate your help.

Best wishes, and thank you again for supporting the best Tech site on the planet.

To you and all your colleagues.

Have a great Christmas and New Year. The forum is, thankfully, going relatively strong, and your regulars much appreciate that it is such a source of free advice and (mostly), non confrontational discussions with a bit of humour thrown in. Think of us as you open Santa’s sack wherever you are�

Forum Editor,

I hope your Christmas is restful not stressful and that you come back suitably refreshed in both body and soul.

"Think of us as you open Santa’s sack wherever you are�"

Of course I will.

"I shall be absent on leave from Friday"

How strange. This is not the first time you have taken leave prior to a special event, over the years. Are you thinking of moving i.e. anywhere near to number 10?

Just joking, I think.

Enjoy your time off and have a happy and stress free Christmas.

Absolutely not. I am deserting Britain in favour of a warmer country, but only for a couple of weeks.

Have a good one FE!

Damn! 20 years really? I must have been a "Late Adopter" - only joined in 2002

FE exactly did the Forum start?

I believe I joined some 6-12 months or so after the launch but can't believe it was so long ago
