It's been about a year now since I moved my last alpha from FreeBSD to VMS.
I'm writing to express my gratitude and admiration to
all those who made FreeBSD alpha port a reality and a success.
I want once again to thank all those who answered my
alpha questions, provided solutions, shared tips and advice.
It's been a very enjoyable experience.
Now it's time to say goodbye..
I moved my alphas to a VMS cluster. That should keep them
useful for several more years.
And I moved all my FreeBSD server needs to ia64. Now, I know
some of you consider it no less alive than alpha, but we shall see.
Being in academia, I'm in a privileged position to take risks.
all the best, and see you again..
