    Howdy Folks,
    So, a few days ago our dear friend Steve (De Orc) told me that he needs less stress in his life. Now, as far as I know moderating this place is the biggest source of stress for him, so the obvious thing is for him to step down. I think we all owe Steve a round of applause for sticking with it for so long!

    Our new friend, GhostX, has graciously offered his assistance to pick up where Steve has left off. I'm not sure what the future holds for this site, but I hope that it will continue to be an outlet for my friends from Coin Talk to blow off steam and discuss important (or not important) issues of the day.

    Thanks to Steve for putting up with some of the lunacy for so long. Welcome to the new Moderator, GhostX. Tell us about yourself, GhostX.

    Well, there's a lot to tell.

    My whole life is a story book, battled cancer back in 2012.

    I'm sorry to hear about the cancer. Hope you're doing well now.

    Been there and done that. It will have been5 year the end of this month. My wife just made 5 year so you figure out what 2009 was like. And my wife was hospitalized twice more just for good measure.

    I was not is shape to worry about pictures. They took half a lung and then gave me a UTI. That gave me sepsis. That gave me pneumonia. They let me out after 23 days later. I pretty much recovered from that in 2012, but it left me with COPD.

    I was out the next day from that, my brother has COPD really bad.

    Not quite gone just yet but I do need to slow things down somewhat, as some of you already know I have Fybromylagia, diabetes and now it looks like I might be in the first stages of either Parkinsons or something called Essential tremors (the quacks cant quite decide LOL) I am finding things rather hard work at the moment including simple things such as typing and remembering words. This is why I am taking a step back :)

    Best wishes to you, Steve. I hope things get better for you. You were always a fair Moderator and I certainly understand your wanting less stress in your life.

    Take care, Steve.

    P.S. Don't go back to Portugal. They're still pretty angry about your last "beaching" incident. It's the smell of spam. It lingers, still.
