The Short Kiss So Long

*cue long sigh*
It's been a long time coming, but I've made the sad (for me) decision to log off one final time and leave geek duties to Christof, Stu, Chris and Billy. While part of my decision is due to the constant guilt I feel for not contributing as often as I'd like, I've really decided that I want, and need, to spend every moment while not working, with my beautiful and ever supportive wife and my gorgeous little raspberry-blowing baby boy. While I say that it was a hard decision, it's actually a no-brainer.

Actually, that's probably overdoing it.

Thanks to the good folks at CD PROJEKT…
