Just want to post a note and welcome Darren Dumas to the Admin team. Darren has always been one of the most diplomatic and fair members of the "Kutaki village" and has done a great job in his capacity as moderator. Darren will now be helping Jan and I run the site in an Admin capacity.

At the same time it's with some regret that we see Eva Bodogan step down from her Admin role due to other commitments after many years of behind-the-scenes work helping to make Kutaki better, especially in developing the podcast interface a few years back - in addition to helping out in many other areas. Thanks so much!

Cheers,

Shawn

Wow - thanks, guys! I've enjoyed Kutaki ever since the beginning days (I remember when it was a brown background!) and have made many great friendships all over the world. I'm happy to lend a hand in this dynamic and wonderful community of buyu.

Gambatte!

That's cool, Double D. I hear you get discounts on equipment with the promotion so double cool.

I almost forgot that early incarnation of the site... that was back when I was hosting it in my kitchen on a FreeBSD box hooked up to my cable connection. hehehe

It was an honour to take part in this job, really  :)



Unfortunately life took a strange and unpleasant  turn at my end and I need all of myself to deal with it, not to mention preparing my final paper at the uni, etc. So I had to chop down some branches from the tree of my activities for a while so that I can have more energy for the most important ones.



Training of course is among the most important ones, so don't you worry, 'cos we can still meet on the tatami.



Maybe I will even be able to re-join your team again in a few years - who knows :) Or maybe you guys will kneel down in front of me begging to me to return Okay, maybe not, knowing how proud you guys are



Anyway, see you very soon this year  before Daikomyosai



Happy training to you



And wishing the best for Darren! :) Jan, Shawn, excellent choice!



Éva

Thanks, Eva! I'm sure your contributions to the team and Kutaki community, although unseen by the masses, surely will be felt in the absence.

As far as your personal challenges/setbacks, here's a big ol' cyber hug for you and prayers for your peace and happiness. And, there's always an unlimited supply when you need more...

Gambatte!
