    (if ya ever need anything
    from The Random Factory,
    bad puns and the like,
    just let me know...)

  • Emma Hart,

    Thank you, Ian. I wanted to write something starting with

    So. Farewell then,
    David Slack.

    but the two-hour school meeting this morning seems to have frappéd the creative bits of my brain.

  • giovanni tiso,

    You'll be missed here, thank goodness for Twitter.

    Unless the demands of @davidslack's remarkable output played a part in this departure, in which case, fuck Twitter.

    You'll be sorely missed, David. It's been a pleasure to follow you on Public Address.

    When you're next in Wellington, don't forget I owe you a beer, and some socks.

  • Jackie Clark,

    You made me cry, David. Which is silly, I know, because I am a devoted follower on Twitter. And you will still be coming to PAS thingies. But still, not reading your posts here will make my day a little greyer. You're a darling, darling man.

    Well, that comes as a bit of a blow.

    Like everybody else here, I was very fond of your writing.
    I have much respect for your decision, but will miss your stories all the same.
    Sincerely hope to read you again soon.
    So long.

  • Mikaere Curtis,


    Somehow contrived to miss this on Friday.

    He mihi tino nui ki a koe, e David. Kia whakamiharo to whakaaro, mo ake ake.

    So many insights, so wonderfully gilded. Who knew living on the Shore could be so much fun ?

    And thanks, again, for the iPod :)

  • Steve Withers,

    Sorry you're going.

    I hope you aren't like me.....and stopped blogging NOT because there is nothing to say, but rather far too much...and one doesn't want to sound like one is whining. :-)

    (Overly much).

    Good luck!
