Out of the Blue

So Long, and Thanks for All the Files is the clever headline on 3D Gamers announcing the departure of our dear friend Frans from the site, part of a break he is taking from the gaming industry as a whole, a well-deserved rest for one of the hardest working people I know. This will impact this site, even though Frans hasn't officially worked here in years, and even regulars used to seeing his name appearing on numerous stories here every day would still probably have a hard time picturing the invaluable support he's provided over the years, from compiling the daily game reviews list to catching leftovers and typos, tech support, moral support, and much more. Besides all of the game-related stuff, he's also been a true friend, always able to help navigate the shark-infested waters of the gaming scene.

Here's wishing Frans the best of luck as he fishes off the pier, rocks his rocking chair, and whatever other things retired guys do. Hopefully he will get enough of that stuff in by the end of today so he can consider starting his comeback tomorrow, if not sooner. But even if this is a long-term or permanent departure from the scene, it's huzzah and kudos for Frans on this occasion, he will indeed be missed.
