The best technical minds available tell us that the Linux Clinic turns ten 
this month (earliest Usenet announcement found was November 1995.) In case 
you don't, Eric, Paul, and I have been doing this gig for roughly nine of 
those ten years - which is a long time. We're pretty burnt out and would 
like a rest. Here's the deal, we plan on calling it quits after the 
November session (which is tomorrow). If someone's interested in taking 
over the Clinic, then please contact David Mandel. Remember, if you're 
considering this, you need to find a new site.

Thanks to Paul Nelson for giving us access to Riverdale's computer labs 
and for being there month after month to help. Thanks to Eric Harrison who 
has been the technical heart and soul of the Clinic. Thanks to John Bruce 
for spending all those Saturdays burning CDs for us.

Lastly, I would like to thank the many members of PLUG who took the time 
to come down and help over the years. I would try to list all the people 
who were especially helpful, but I don't want to insult anyone by leaving 
them out. Thanks everyone!
