    Well, although I may never had much to do with you W1zz, I do wish you the best of luck in whatever field you may choose to pursue. Who knows, in a few years some technological revolution may re-spark your interest in the bleeding edge of tech. But, until then, hopefully the ethics you've integrated into this forum will continue to be around, in whatever form or place we may be in.

    I thought my current list of screw ups might be good for a laugh given this news.

    I didn't maybe its the drunken posting. Or maybe they are just working on it. At least I'm still coherent enough to use spell check.


    W1zz, we all totally respect what you do here, those of us that bench, tweak, bench and tweak, and finally achieve nirvana with our hardware understand what you do. Those assholes who don't and can only post their uninformed, uneducated, total shit opinion of point and click shit user ideas don't deserve the ability to continue and post to drag this community down.


    Who here has actually spent the time to write software, debug it, test the shit out of it, submit it to peer review and have the balls to continue. I didn't. I stopped after a few people started whining. Fucking assholes.

    I've had two in total and that was a while back. Both unfairly given in my opinion.

    this site has inspired so many in so many ways. it is a sad day today.

    Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you, w1zzard, with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me, when my gpu over heats, your software alerts me, when i am alone your forums keep me company, when I look to me left and you, w1zzard, have walked with me.

    lame but whatever

    Fuck you and the pair of horse you rode in on. :laugh:

    Sorry mods. He was asking for it.

    maybe it has to do with years of dealing with noob bullcrap? Or maybe I just never retired like I should have from this game. 30 years old this year and feeling it some days. I started in 94' at computers. Started in the glory days when the internet was young and anything was possible. Today it has grown to more than most of us dreamed, and so large it takes what feels like months of time to keep up.

    THANK YOU WIZZ! For creating the best Tech sight on the netz! :toast: :respect:
    Thanks for giving me a little home away from home! :toast:
    Thank you for your great un-biased reviews! :toast:

    I just hope that you are doing it for all the RIGHT reasons! :cool:
    You will be GREATLY missed! :(

    I would say that i am going to abandon TPU also,like others have said,BUT,i love this place too much to make such a rash decision like that. I'll leave that one as a "Time will Tell" :ohwell:.

    I dont understand why you just don't take a LONNNNG break and hand down some responsibilities to others.Then just sit back and relax and enjoy what you have created.(kind of like a Grandparent would do).Though,you have your own reasons.

    What ever you do though,My kindest thought's travel with you.:)

    And again. THANK YOU

    W1z,

    It really sucks to see you go. When selling tpu, don't forget that it is YOU who gave rise to this incredible website, and it is your blood sweat and tears that got this site to be the way it is. I really do appreciate all that you've done for TPU, and the hard work you've put into the great software you've released (such as gpu-z, tpucapture, and atitool).

    I would like to wish you the best of luck for all of your new endeavors and hope that you are just as successful in whatever you choose to do as you have been here at TPU.

    Thank You for all that you've done.

    -Panchoman

    All I will say is that if it wasn't for you W1Z, I wouldn't be who I am right now, why? Well, no TPU, that's why. This place is absolutely amazing and the community is great. I checked out the fermi thread and honestly that's why I never even subscribe to that type of thread. Easy to criticize when you are not the one doing a review or what not. Whatever you do, good luck man and we'll def. be here if you need us dude :rockout:

    Why are people thanking his OP ?

    Doesn't thanking him on that post means thanking him for leaving ?

    They're thanking him for all the work he's done creating this site, not for leaving. They may be wishing him good luck with his adventures, but that's what I've read so far.

    Wizzard is the reason TPU is now so popular. He built it. We owe our existence to him. If he leaves, it will be a huge dent. We can't let him leave!!!!
