All -

After 39 1/2 years of service at Argonne (16 of which were devoted to EPICS development), Marty Kraimer has decided to "retire"* from his current position at Argonne. His last day at Argonne will be February 1st, 2006.

Marty's "Reminiscing and Appreciation" dinner will be held at the Argonne Guest House on Friday, January 27th. If you will be in the Chicago area and would like to attend, I can send you more details. If you would like to contribute a personal statement of appreciation for Marty that will be read at the dinner, forward it to Debby Quock (quock@aps.anl.gov).

I'm sure you would agree that Marty's contributions to the world-wide controls community meet all "Controls Hall of Fame" criteria. Please find a way of expressing your own gratitude to him as his last day approaches.

* Officially, Marty is retiring from Argonne, but we all know that this does not mean Marty is retiring from work.


Officially I am retiring from Argonne but I am NOT retiring from EPICS.


Due to tight budgets at ANL/APS, APS asked for volunteers for layoff. I submitted my name. I will receive severence pay equal to 1/2 year of my salary and also am entitled to normal retirement benefits.

My immediate plans are to begin work on implementing an EPICS Version 4 Java IOC. I will not be paid for this effort but will consider my severence as paying for a six month sabatical. My expectation is that in six months at least a "proof of concept" will be available.

Assumimg the Java IOC attracts interest (I have high hopes that it will), in a few months I will consider other options for working within the EPICS community.

Thus this is NOT good bye. I expect to see many of you in the future.

Marty Kraimer
