A fond farewell from one of your favourite columnists.
Not that I've been keeping count, but it is 16 and a half years since this column started. By my rough calculation that means that this is the 182nd column I have written. It is also the last.
All good things must come to an end, and when you've been doing a column as long as that there is always the danger of staleness, lack of new ideas, or sort of repeating successful formulas while on autopilot. I hope I have avoided that, but feel the time has come to stop, so I have decided to hang up the word processor.
