As you may have noticed during your time as a Dealbreaker reader, technology is not exactly this operation’s forte. Among our many issues, browsing the site on one’s phone, as many of you tend to do during business hours, has been a mildly to majorly painful experience. Since punishing you is not our goal, some people have done some tinkering and revamping and come up with a mobile version that will be slightly more pleasant for you. No longer will you have to wait 60-75 seconds for a page to load. What a world! One important thing to note: we are still working on integrating comments, so in the meantime, if you’re reading on your phone or iPad, click the icon at the top right of the page, then the chat bubble, then the word ‘COMMENT,’ which will take you where you wish to go.

Today is my last day at Dealbreaker. All the obvious things are true: this is the best job I’ve ever had, it’s been an incredibly fun two years, and I will always be grateful to Bess and Breaking Media for giving me this opportunity. Also to all of you: thanks for reading, for commenting, for emailing, and for generally being the best audience on the internet, financial or otherwise. I will miss it here.
After some vacation I’ll be moving on to another opportunity, which will be announced shortly after Labor Day. I can’t tell you much about it yet, but I will still be writing about finance on the internet, and I’m excited for it.1 I hope you’ll keep reading. Also I hope you’ll follow me on Twitter, if that’s your thing.
I started reading Dealbreaker as a junior M&A lawyer in 2006, so I’ve been a fan from the beginning. It’s still a little hard to believe that I got to actually help make Dealbreaker for a while. It’s been a great privilege, and I’m looking forward to being a fan again.
1. Also there will probably be footnotes. This is a bit of a throwaway but it is also my last Dealbreaker footnote so let me take a moment here. Okay.
As you may have noticed, you can’t leave or read comments on Dealbreaker today. Do not fear, this is only temporary! They have been disabled while the people who keep this site running, in a technological sense, work on making it run more consistently and maybe even a bit faster! They should be back by tonight, if not sooner.

Do you want to write things on Dealbreaker? We are looking for a few more regular columnists to write regularly on the areas of their expertise and interest.
