What can I say, man?

This is baaaaaad - and very sad - news for us but I know we all want the very best for you.  I am sure you could work in a motorbikes angle, somehow?

All I can say is that you were always, always there: always listening, always giving, always guiding.

Geez man. Im shocked!

You have done a fantastic job as project lead and you will surely be very hard to replace.

Thankyou for your hard work, commitment and time (especially when answering my numerous questions) and I wish you the best in your new endeavor.

Don't be a stranger.

Dear Nigel,

I wish you my very best for your next aventure. For me you are the soul of this project, event If I know that other tallented people, as Richard Mansfield, Penny et al, are working hard on it.

I hope that Mahara will continue its progression towards a wider use all over the world. Mahara is one of the best open source project and the most useful I have seen ever.

I am sad to see you leaving a project I love but also happy you find new challenge and yes, if you wanto to introduce motorbike: yes you can.

I alway knew that you will leave this project or Catalyst at some point, but such decision is nevertheless a suprise.

Thank you for your time on the forums, your help, your tallent, your patience. Thank you and don't go too far, keep in touch. I whish you will have fun to be able to launch version 1.2 before your leaving.

And if, as Penny, you feel attracted to settle down or just visit Switzerland, you know you have a place to stay.

Have fun,

Friendly yours,
