    Where'd Velocipedio go?

    Seems like it's been a while since I've seen a posting by him. Surely canuck universities get a spring break! Somehow, I can't imagine he departed in disgust, resulting from a political debate, or some such!

    He left a message saying he was going to be busy for a while and needed to take some time off from the forums. I'm sure he'll turn up again soon. Who could stay away?

    I think he was a little perturbed by some of the threads, but that wasn't the reason for taking a break.

    Velocipeidio's spring break as well as mine two weeks ago. He teaches where I go to University (on a different campus though). Fubar5 is right though

    He's taking a sebatical from the forum for some personal reasons (I think).

    Yes, and I also hear he's taking a sabbatical too.

    He's also working on his doctorate in history. But yes, I miss Velocipedio as well.

    Maybe we could start a petition for him to come back?

    I always enjoyed reading what he had to say about bikes. I hope it isnt because of the political forum. That would be sad to see he would give up. I dont think that is the case.
