Everything that has a beginning has an end

Hi folks,

As some of you may have noticed, my last OpenSimulator commit was in May, and before that in March.  I have also not
been on the mailing list or responsive to personal e-mails, for which I apologise.

Unfortunately, for various reasons (some of which I'm still trying to work out, to be honest) my motivation to work in
this area has gone away.  Perhaps it's just the normal passage of time and evolving interests - it has been 8 years
after all!

I'm now working in the area of data integration for genetics and synthetic biology, an even more insanely complex system
and perhaps ultimately frustrating since you can't just go and code an organism (at least, not yet).  We shall see.

I do hope to keep up with the mailing lists and e-mail to this account, at least much better than recently.  However,
although I remain a core committer, at least for now, in the immediate future code commits from me will be extremely
sparse.  I will also probably not be reviewing code changes in general.

I am also resigning with immediate effect as president of Overte, which is going away as a formal legal organization
anyway (see other e-mails for more details on that).

It's been a wild 8 years and I wouldn't have it any other way.  Huge thanks to everybody who has supported OpenSimulator
and me personally in that time.  I wish you all the best and I'm sure OpenSimulator and the Metaverse in general will
have a great future

I made a blog post at [1] those this is pretty much what I said above.

No flowers.
