This is a note to let you all know that I have decided to accept a job 
in Chicago.  It is at a consulting firm named "Ganymede Corporation" that 
I helped get started in January of '95.

My last day at Argonne will be Friday, September 13th.

This morning, I was poking about the GPIB driver source code and noticed
that the first thing in the change log is a note from myself.  It was
the the day that I made my first "sccs delta" to any of the EPICS source.
The date on the note is Friday, September 13, 1991.  

That driver is (was) a bit of a pain in my backside and viewed (at least 
by myself) as a mess.  Yet, (exactly) 5 years later it still is a popular 
part of EPICS.

I can only hope that history will repeat itself and that the same bad 
luck, on the same Friday the 13th, will once again shine upon me.  That 
is, that I might be given the opportunity to start something that will 
provide many years of work that is valuable and that (while I might gripe 
about it from time to time) I enjoy doing.  (If you need me on Friday, I 
will be on the experimental floor, walking under ladders.)

Keep them particles moving!

--John Winans


P.S.  Bill McDowell and set up an STA that will allow me back 'in the fence' 
once in a while if get lonely.  My account will remain active at APS for a
while.  I will still read me email here from time to time.
