Erm... I can't seem to find the second part of the big announcement... it was there this morning. Its still on the rss feed cache.. so I'm pretty sure I didn't imagine it.


Er.... Is Phil begging for his job back right now? Hope not... unless he needs it back... I mean... I hope his original decision has not turned out to be notsogood or something...


er.... yea...

If Phil were trying to unpublish it, do you consider your actions helpful?

Chances are it just needed an edit, or went missing accidentally, or was premature, or is absent for some other good reason. Still, it might not hurt to be a little more tactful about announcing what you read.

I don't think it ever was up. It's an elaborate fabrication. They used a satellite to beam it down and make it look like he posted it. It was probably done at area 51.

It was up, and I took it down pending some updates. It'll be back up eventually. Sorry about any confusion.

Just that Phil's announcement that he quit his job disappeared for a while shortly after it was put up, and people started guessing why.
