It is with much regret that I have to announce the forthcoming 'retirement' from moderating by Martin. Martin has been moderating for many years and feels that it is time that he gave it up, or had a rest.

Jill has agreed to return to moderating and will take over the reins in this forum during the next few days.

Martin will of course continue to be around in the forums so we will still have the pleasure of his puns from time to time.

Welcome Back Jill, your mod skills have been missed.
Martin, what can I say? I don't think there are many of us who have not benefited from your knowledge and expertise in Technology and in Photography. I know I have learnt a lot. Thanks to you for helping me out of my scrapes and putting me on the right road so often in my klutziness in both areas.We will miss you and I echo Sue's hopes that you will still be around, awful puns or not.

Thank you for your excellent work TW (or Martin).

For those of us who don't know everyone's real name, who is Jill?

That's me, Gary

I'm afraid that I don't have the photography nounce that TW does but will try my best. Please shoot ideas at me at any time too.

Shame on you Martin! This is not a piece of news with which I should start my Sunday .
I am really sorry you're leaving but I am glad to hear you'll still be around. And help us more, I hope.

Welcome back Jill!
Thank God for this other piece of news, now my Sunday is sunny again.

Aw, Martin! Well, at least you will still be around and I can't think of a better person than Jill to come back and fill the place for you. Welcome Miss Mod Copago!

I echo the other sentiments, TW, you have been a great mod here you'll certainly be missed.

Jill, I'm sure you'll do a great job moderating here!

Everyone has said it all. So, ditto from me, TeeDub! You're still the 'go to' guy!

Copago, you will be great, of course!

Late to be checking in, but sorry to see you leaving TW, you've been great! Happy though that you're not leaving completely. Copago, glad to see you here.
