    We're in a huge transition at the moment - Notes is out of favour, anything M$ is in, but they still can't quite agree how to knock Notes on the head and replace the corporate intranet serving 15,000 employees with 40,000 pages and apps. When faced with hard numbers suddenly their plan to migrate to Sharepoint overnight goes a bit wonky/ costly/ slow and decisions are sidestepped.

    Now my days are now numbered, and redundancy has been served on the last Notes analyst/ developer/ expert/ anything technical in the company - me. 13 years of Notes glory, sometimes single-handedly, once in a team of 9 other developers in the heyday, and I'll be off to pastures new next summer; unlikely to be Notes. Yet I'm still here, reading your articles and blogs, and still learning from your posts and wishing you the absolute best. Rightly or wrongly, for better or worse, I am going down fighting - I won't let go of Notes quietly, I'm too yellow!

    There will come a day our paths will completely diverge as I move away from coding to business analysis, but I will never forget Notes and am not looking forward to the day I have to open Outlook for the first time :-(
