Dr. Sudoku Life Update  
I had a post I wanted to make after Mystery Hunt, and it was not the last one that is now at 350 comments.

As I told almost all the friends and teammates I met last weekend, my job at a biotech start-up has ended. I am soon to be performing a "soft reset" of my life by moving to Seattle in February and doing other things for awhile. Certainly, my new puzzle project Grandmaster Puzzles is one of these things, but so is running a marathon again, sleeping again, enjoying life again. The end of my 32nd year was the worst I've known. The beginning of my 33rd has been great and I hope it continues this way.

Oh, I didn't know that :( That sounds pretty awful.

I'll be sad to not see you around at puzzle events here anymore (you were one of the first puzzle people I met in the bay area, when the DRT's playtested/simulcast MSPH14 for us) but I hope that the move to Seattle works out for you. It's a nice city.

I will try to come down to the "big" ones still, and coordinate the right weekend to see all my friends. It was a very hard choice to make, but also the only choice I saw in a dark period to move forward with my life.

I totally understand. I did the same thing, but in reverse (I couldn't seem to get my US life back together in Seattle after living in Japan for so long, so I moved to San Francisco to see if a fresh start would help. I still haven't decided if it has worked out...)

I still go back to Seattle every few months because it's such a quick flight, to see friends or do puzzle events or whatever, so you'll probably find the same thing to be true of visiting the Bay Area! And uh, if you need to ditch any heavy heavy stacks of sudoku books before moving, I might know a good place they can go to ;)
