    LightBucket, you ol' cog! I think somebody forgot to plug you back in!

    I just wanted to say, I miss you, buddy. Wherever you are, sitting in some lonely forgotten corner, battery acid leaking into your circuitry, mice gnawing at your wires, perhaps a bit of oil leaking out of a blown gasket, I hope you are otherwise well.

    Hopefully, someday, you will be rescued and revived! It will be a fine day indeed when you can once again regale us with tales of wonder and amazement! You are truly a bard and a sage, O Wise Moderator Bot!

    May your RSA feed be plentiful, and your electrons in a steady flow! Until we meet again, mon ami!
