Luis, for shame, with your top-posting. :P

I have had a small chat w/Eric on IRC a week or so ago regarding this.

I welcome anyone stepping into this position as long as they can
maintain the usual high-quality.

If not, the very least we can do is use Olis's latest wallpaper:

On a personal note, I *might* be returning to my home state in 6 weeks
for a job there. (I've been working 2 states away from the family) If
things work out, I hope to return to active involvement on the next
cycle. (in whatever capacity Studio might exist)

Rock on. \m/
