my status

Yo, I’m out dog: I’m not on BLF for a while. No need to worry about my mental, physical, or fiscal status. I’m fine in those and other similar respects. I’m just not on BLF for a while.

For now I apologize for any PMs I haven’t responded to or any of my own threads I haven’t participated in.

I’m around at least for a bit. Some PMs got missed. If didn’t get a response I apologize – try PMing again if you need to.

I’m currently not responding to PM’s, comments in threads, or any BLF-based communication. I’ll update if and when this changes.

Uh oh, rampant speculation ensues. In a vacuum imagination runs wild. I’ll do my best not to ponder the possibilities and just hope your time elsewhere is just as appreciated as it has been here. Beer

Thank you for your contribution. Much appreciated. You leave us with many questions of why you are leaving? Is it that mysterious?

Wight,

Thank you so much for all of your contributions to BLF, and for helping many of us out with so many builds by offering information, advice and producing so many excellent driver boards. We’ll miss you while you’re gone. Glad everything is alright, and hopefully you’ll be back soon!

You can ponder a problem all night

Or you could just present it to wight

If anyone can

He'll come up with a plan

and solution that's perfectly right

I hope all is well and hope to see you back soon.

It was kind of you to let us know that you are good.

Thank you for all the help, you made a difference.

Good to know.

Thanks for everything Smile

Have a well deserved rest Smile and don’t forget about us, we still need you to push the driver envelope Wink

Something like a confirmed license for your designs if that is possible would be good to know, for future GB’s that may want to get other producers like EE on the A6 GB to use one of your designs.
If you will not be available when something like that comes up in the future.
The 1504 GB for example briefly mentioned the interest.

So what is the reason?!

Is he a flashaholic[ like most of us] and his Wife or significant other is barring him for awhile??!!

I do not know him,,,,,,,,,A lot of you obviously do which was demonstrated by your kind words.

I just found it a bit strange to make an announcement and not give a reason.

Even if it “is for personal reasons”,,,that is all you have to say about that.

Solitude breeds contemplation which creates clarity. 

Environment molds a person. Perseverance changes them.

To me the reason doesn't matter and doesn't need further explanation.  He told us not to worry about it, so let's not. 

Maybe he's just burned out on the whole deal and needs a break?

Well it’s better than just disappearing, like many have done

+ one on what RMM has said here. I do appreciate letting us know as did mattaus. A reason for disappearing is not needed just that they disappeared with a wave.

I've been known to dissapear from forums on a whim for extended periods of time. Sometimes life happens, sometimes another interest takes up the time that was used on that forum. 

Best of luck in your journey

Thanks for the send-off folks, I appreciate all the kind words very deeply. I’ve missed you all and BLF a lot. Anything (posts, PM’s, emails, creepy morse code from a couple miles down the highway) that wasn’t responded to while I was gone was with no ill-will intended. As a rule I just haven’t been keeping up with any of that.

RMM and others are right – I made this thread primarily out of consideration for others. Many of us have spent a lot of collective time worrying about past members who hit that “magic postcount” and disappeared without a trace. Lots of them were good folks and we never knew if they’d been struck dead or what. Sometimes it’s just hard to help worrying about those who simply disappear.
I’m around for the moment, but no guarantees about the long-term. Flat Stare

Welcome back, at least for the moment. I was gone for most of the past year, unplanned, and was shocked when I returned and you were not here.

Big Smile
