    This actually makes sense. I can see why he would get bored with this stuff, but he's not much for drama, and this is nothing but drama.

    Or maybe not.

    Also, to anyone making petitions, it is W1z decision, not ours, even though we would love it to be.

    Hey W1zzard, I hope you change your mind but I understand if you don't.

    I've been a fan of yours since the ocfaq days and as far as I'm concerned you're the best resource any video card enthusiast could ever wish for, between all the great utilities you've created and this great website.

    Thanks for all you've done till now and best wishes for the future.

    W1zzard I have to thank you for putting together a top notch site! You get crazy traffic and you know I know as I have PM'ed about the WOW look how many people in the past and another big thank you for not killing us with adds which you could have (another top notch thing). You have shaped and picked the best Mods that a site could ask for
    (another top Notch thing). Also thank you for the best unbiased reviews anyone could ever have hoped for! I just know for 100% sure that what ever you do it will be a job well done and I believe you will always be financially secure in your endeavors! I hope you get a GOOD AMOUNT on the offer for TPU when its said and done! Good luck:slap:

    W1zzard, this site is the only computer HW site I frequent and is only one of two online communities I participate in (The other is a tiny Israeli HW/Gaming forum). The reasons are simple: The quality of the reviews, the effort put into the site and the great staff that you've put together make this the best online community on the internet, and the best computer HW site ever.

    I am very, very sad to see you go, and as many others, I hope this is an early April 1st joke. If it is, I sincerely hope you're currently laughing your ass off, because you more than deserve that.

    If it isn't, then may luck shine on your future endeavors.

    And the last thing ? T-H-A-N-K-S.

    read all the comments, including the Fermi review stuff... here's my 10p worth.

    W1zz, the problem with tech in general is that it changes, we change and the environment in which we operate changes. I know what you mean about the excitement going - after a while the things which we were so pumped about become normal, then mundane, then boring and an annoyance. The comments that you received were unfortunately very similar to what I see on lots of other sites now - we have reached a point in our society were hard work is ignored, where mistakes (if indeed they are mistakes) are vilified and expanded so that a person is judged only by that once incident. Technology has been a good ride for you and for me (I still have a Psion organiser Lz64 - look it up) but eventually the ride comes to an end.

    I hope that you got paid for all the work you put in, not necessarily financially, but in the true ways that matter. You'll move on - as indeed will many of us here today. I just hope that when you look back at this whole experience you will not allow the taint at the end to ruin it...

    Final point - I never paid a penny to come here every day for the last 3 years or so, but I enjoyed every visit, the banter within the groups and discussions (especially when I was wrong!) and I thank you for your advice, opinions and contribution.

    If true, I hate to see you go and TPU will be coming off from my bookmarks. I have seen what happens to great sites when the true owner leaves, it's never a good thing.

    I'm not buying this for one sec.

    For someone to quit because of comments people made about a review is one of the most absurd reasons I've ever heard.

    The mods are obviously playing along

    BUT

    If this is true and you are leaving over the reason stated, sorry but grow up and be a man...

    Well, the question is what he likes more, then ? :D

    Hey, W1zz, you a cat person or a dog person ? :laugh:

    Oh, and to everyone saying things like "grow up" ? I think you should follow your own advice.

    Kitten's arn't as cute as bunnies...Use bunnies, you'll get a greater response. Or threaten to punch a baby in the face.
