Bye Bye, Bob!

What's Christmas without a Scrooge? We, the editors of Byte and Switch, decided to balance the scales of holiday cheer this year with a little "rightsizing."

Bluntly put: Bob the Beaver, mascot of this site, is out. Gone. Redundified. Kaput. Flamed. Afire. Kicked out on his little hirsute posterior.

Indeed, we actually slaughtered the little bugger for Christmas dinner.

Bob the Beaver, late of Byte and Switch

We're not asking forgiveness. In fact, we thought it was high time Bob moved on, especially given his last-column comments about Brocade Communications Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: BRCD), Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO), EMC Corp. (NYSE: EMC), and other leading lights of the storage networking market (see Beaver Bait).
