> Now, what's this about your dropping the Marvel habit, or whatever?

I've been working on the Handbooks since the 2004 FF Encyclopedia. However, I'm also entering my third year as a tenure track academic librarian at a western US university, and the incredible amount of work involved in the Handbooks was getting in the way of my "real" career. I love both jobs, but realistically, when it came down to researching for Marvel or furthering an academic career, well, there was only one possible choice. \:\(

SQUEAK / Mark O'

Not in the least.

Thus, DW, my question was completely innocent, and not rude. I consider Squeak, like Cyber Coyote, Attok12, Doc Shallot, Icon, and First Chaos among everyone else, a 'friend.'

A friendly 'challenge' of various natures is part and parcel of these boards, in my experience.

I'm proud of you, Mark, and hope you find every success in your field. You are the man. No wonder your response was so elegant and euridite.

I thought you were saying, 'I'm giving up buying/reading Marvel' or something along those lines.

I hope you'll stick around on the boards or still find time for them in the future.
