It has taken me a LONG time to write this post. I've found it almost impossible to give up 25 years of the best job on the planet. I have so many wonderful memories of this group and of learning about IDL together. But the time has come for me to put Coyote's Guide to IDL Programming to bed.
I'll be taking down the Coyote's Guide to IDL Programming web page at the end of January, 2018.
If anyone is interested in the web page, or in taking over responsibility for the Coyote Library programs, please contact me. I get enough e-mails that I suspect it still has some value to a small (and decreasing) IDL population. If you have contacted me before about this and I have ignored you, I am sorry. It has been too painful for me to think about and I preferred denial to action. Please contact me again. First come, first served.
Again, thank you so much for the many, many wonderful friends I made in this community, for supporting me by scheduling IDL classes and by buying my books. My kids got wonderful educations because of you! I am grateful to each and every one of you who participated and contributed to this wonderful IDL community.
My very best to all of you,
