    Taking a litlle break.

    I have decided to take some time away from TPU. The machines will continue to run for the team at 100%, and if that changes I will inform you guys.
    Ive ran into a few members here (not anyone here on the team. you guys are awesome) that have really pissed me off here the past few days. I will not name anyone personally. Kids that have no idea what the real world is all about, but insist that they know better than everyone else. They have really rubbed me the wrong way lately, so, instead of writing everyone off and saying good bye, Ive decided to take a few days off and away from TPU, to simmer down a bit.
    This is not directed to anyone here on the team in any way, shape or form. Some people here need to grow up and realize that the world is a fucking ugly place. But until you drop your moms tit out of your mouth and experience what I have seen and experienced you need to STFU and return to your school work. I havent fought and bled for this country on 3 different tours in 4 different countries to have a bunch of snot nosed brat kids tell me what is right and wrong and how I should live my life, and on a tech forum at that. I have earned the right to tell you to "STFU". Your parents need to beat some sense into your thick skulls.
    Fear not, I will return. :toast:

    :laugh::laugh: No comment. :roll:

    I'll keep it short and simple bro. I have felt like that at times, there is bad apples in every bunch. I love TPU as a whole, and I'm all over the place. However since I got into WCG notice most if not almost all of my posts come withing the WCG forum. Everybody here is cool, mature and knows how to have fun while keeping things adequate. I'll ask you not to take some time off from the whole forum and at least chill with us here in the WCG threads, you're a great asset to the team and forum. Just sit back, pop open a beer of your choice and kick it with your boys and gal (Black Panther) of the TPU WCG team :toast: What do ya say? :)

    I've had that feeling thanks to many forums. Sometimes due to older folk too. But most of the time it's the youngin's. :shadedshu

    I'm sure you here it a lot, but thank you for serving, your a better man than I. (I'm a reject thanks to my bad knees, not even the NG would take me. :ohwell:) But I have quite a few friends that have served overseas/are serving now. Not to long ago, one came back in a casket. But that's just the way things are.

    Anyways, just remember, those "kids" you mentioned are in their "I know everything" stage. They say a lot of stupid shit. Hell not more than a handful of years ago I was one of them. But enjoy your break, enjoy a brew or two, and don't worry about the drama. Hope it helps you. :toast:

    Just wanting to make sure.....am I part of the problem? I'm at "that age", so I'm wondering. If I'm pissing people off, I'll leave for a bit and see if it helps, but if not I won't

    Plus he said it was nobody on the TPU WCG team so that alone should be enough confirmation that it wasn't you :D

    Ion, your a shining example of what more people in your age group should be as far as behavior goes. In fact, because of the good example you've set, I sell to 16+ here instead of my normal 18+. (As seen here.) :toast:

    @ blkhogan. You're hard work for a better world are much appriciated.
    Starting a new job when you still own one is tough as nails.
    As for the post on TPU, just remember that this is like home too all of us but at times we just can't look the door and then that uncle sneeks in.
    I hope I din't piss u off, you have big guns.
    P.S I'm real old (44)

    If I told u.. I'd have to kill u
    After a few beers and thinking this over Ive decided that the TPU crunching team is an important part of my life and is my stress reliever/hobby, and I just love to do it. I am going to limit myself to posting and staying current with this part of TPU for right now.
    To all the team members, this had nothing to do with any of you. I consider you guys friends, as good of friends as you can have without even knowing anyone personally. :) Thanks for the kind words everyone, and yes Mike, I have lots of big guns. :laugh:

    sometimes you just need to let of some steam, and after you have done that you can think more clearly, and im happy too see that you stay with the team bro.

    Had to get a new psu. All of my spares are lacking the 8 pin mobo connector I need. Also ordered some new TIM. Has anyone used the Xiggy Freeze Xtreme? Got a tube of that and some AC ceramique.
