Well Sandy, it's been a pleasure to interact with you over the past
couple of years and I'm sad to see such a great contributor go.

In any case, thanks for all your contributions to the OCA, especially on
the QA front, and thanks for letting us know you're moving on, and I
wish you the best in your future career.
