[aur-general] Resignation

Dear all,

Even since I got a full time job back in September 2007, my time for TU 
duties has been limited. A few months ago I switched to a different DSL 
provider (since the previous one couldn't get their act together), and 
they gave me a PPPoE modem instead of a router, which I couldn't get to 
dial in on Arch Linux, which basically forced me to switch to something 
else, Ubuntu in this case (pppoeconf had it done in seconds).

 From then on it just went downhill. I kept updating and sometimes 
rebuilding packages on an Arch Linux installed on VirtualBox at work. 
However on each Ubuntu kernel upgrade it broke down and recently it 
seems to have done its last breath since it no longer boots after Arch 
Linux ran out of harddrive space while upgrading the kernel.

I decided this is where it ends. I've really enjoyed Arch Linux while it 
last, and I think it really rocks for those who want to be always up to 
date and also easily package their own stuff, allowing for a convenient 
and complete management of all system files. However, frequent breaks 
and security problems (no doubt mostly my own fault) had already made me 
prefer other distributions on my laptop and server.

I'll post my list of packages in a separate email.

Thanks for several enjoyable years!
