sold out

Wed Dec 04, 2013 10:36 pm

You guys have probably noticed over the past few years that I haven't been putting as much time into the site as I used to. I've been spending a lot of time with my work and even more with my kids. I finally decided a few months ago to put the site up for sale and today, after a bit of a negotiation process, the transaction is complete.

After a few minor details are ironed out, I will be working with the buyer to transfer the site and all of its assets to them. I have agreed to some consultancy time during the transition and then will be moving on.

It was a hard decision to give up something that I (we) have worked so hard on, but I felt like all of my creative juices were spent and that my family deserved more of my time although the wife might not think so.

I'll miss the fun site projects, crazy ass threads, and great people I've met on the site. Thank you for supporting the site with your time and energy. The community we built is truly something unique.

:cheers:

:thankyou:

Steve you have done a fantastic job with this forum and I am greatly appreciative to be part of this group.

I understand the family thing and I wish you the best of luck. Im sure the new owner will let you pop in and out every now and again.

If you ever make it up to Amarillo hit me up I owe you a couple beers :cheers:

Wow I had to check the date and make sure it wasn't April 1st.

This place really is an Internet home away from home for me. Everyone here is awesome and it's because of you that we have NF.

The times are a changin. :cheers:

Thanks so much, Steve, for all you've done. And you're making the right decision. Seasons change, and you have to change with them to keep your sanity and your happiness.
Take a baseball bat and trash all the routers, shout out "IT'S A NETWORK PROBLEM NOW, SUCKERS!" and then peel out of the parking lot in your Ferrari.

Gratz!! I am sure you'll still be around, and as much as I hate to admit it but family does come before networking.

I love this place and I am sure I will continue to.

Steve!

You'll be missed. This place has been an information hub for me for the past few years and hope it never goes away, the people are awesome and even when I'm not looking for technical info/advice I still find myself browsing the forums. Hope you stick around in a posting fashion and I hope whoever has ownership maintains the integrity and high quality of the site/community, though they'll never be able to replace you fully!

A true thanks for everything you've done, and I hope you realize how much you've brought the network community together as well as inspired many more to get involved.
The best part about telling UDP jokes is I don't really care if you get them or not.
