Hey, guy,

two things :

1) thanks.
2) and thanks !

Alex has devoted so much time and energy on ADS those past 5 years that 
at some point he wanted to put the load of administrative tasks on 
someone other shoulders... he suggested mine, and you accepted. I will 
try to do my best to help the community to grow and be successfull, with 
Alex help, and with all your help !

ok, starting as the new chairman, I think I need some vacations to begin 
with : I'm off for 3 days ;)

CU next tuesday !

Thanks again alex for the good job !
