I know, it's my choice (even though some people hinted at it, more or 
less subtly). I'd like to become more active, but I just can't now, 
there's too many things going on in my life and I just can't find the 
time which the website deserves. Besides, as I mentioned on my blog, I'm 
not at all involved in LFS now, so I don't think I'm the right guy to 
lead this anymore. I'm not going away completely, I'll probably lurk around.

Rest assured I wasn't offended by your post in any way. I'm not sure if 
I can stay on as team member; most likely I won't have time to do 
anything substantial. And if I did have enough time, I'd want to do the 
whole thing myself (and my way) anyway! :-)

I trust that someone with vision and dedication will step forward to 
become the new website leader.
