    It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing the resignation of Mike Batzel as a moderator. Mike contacted me last week, stating that family needs and other personal needs have been preventing him from being as active as he would like to be.

    Mike has served the forum for several years now and has been a great, level-headed asset to the forum. While I understand his request, I don't like it.

    Mike will dropping in from time to time as his schedule allows. He is always welcomed back as a moderator should his time become less constrained.

    Oh yeah, one other thing, Mike ROLL TIDE!

    Unfortunate, but understandable. Family is very important. Thanks for doing a great job as moderator, Mike. Hopefully you will be able to come back soon and once again put on your moderator hat.

    Sorry to hear about Mike's need to dial back, but understandable. Hope he comes back soon.

    Yes, and you seem to be surviving the storm quite well.

    Thanks to Mike for all your help. I know very well how demanding things outside the interwebs can be, and rightly so. I hope you spend good time with the family, and we will always be happy to see you here when you have the time.
