Since there's obviously been a failure to communicate here, allow me
to expand on this.  Last March (or was it March 2014?  I forget now) I
asked for permission to cut back to 80% time at Citrix; so since then
I've been working M-Th, and Friday was "work for myself" day where I
mainly pursued personal projects.

And now that it's been publicly announced, this is actually my *last*
"work for myself" Friday -- as of next week I'm back to 100%.

So no, you haven't gotten rid of me just yet; on the contrary, you'll
soon get 25% more. :-)
