The title isn't totally correct in that I am not truly leaving this community. However this is my last day with Stardock and the Support Team. I am moving on into several new ventures. While I am excited at these new prospects I am sad to be going.
I wanted to take a moment to thank the community for the support they have shown me over the years. While I have many a singe mark from the flames I endured I have just as many pats on the back from those whom I helped, I am forever grateful for those whom stood up for the working stiff in the forums. Frankly I think I learned the most about the software I supported just from everyone here than I ever did at my desk.
I still intend to be a contributor to Wincustomize so you will see me around. In the mean time I hope that Stardock has a great new year and that everyone here does the same!
My personal thanks go out to Shirley, Kendo, Melibee, Highlander, and Milksama as current and former soldiers on the front line of support. They had my back in the worst of it and I wish them all the luck. Milksama epically since he was there in the beginning of all my newb ways. He and his family have always seen to me.
I wish to thank Karmagirl as being the best boss I have ever had. She was just as much a friend/older sister as she was my supervisor. She might have wailed on me when I needed it but God help you if anyone else messed with me. That was her privilege alone. I am a better man for it.
To Nakor thank you for being my crack dealer. Not actual crack mind you but worse: great books. The sort of books you don't put down until days later to find out you have been declared legally dead. Thanks too for looking out for me.
To Zargon and Phil I feel we could have gotten to know each other better but I am glad to have met you. Thank you for the kindness and the opportunities. They meant a great deal to me.
To Zubaz thanks for all the great advice, the listening ear, and the hatchet for all the would be flamers in the forums. Should you ever need something you have only to ask.
To IslandDog, Zoomba, Hankers, HG_Eliminator, and Yarlen thanks for the kindness, the encouragement, and the ability to put up with me so well. The forums are not an easy place to live but you guys always made it look so.
To Dean, TMan, Rabbit, and Kindeys... I'm sorry... I hope that is enough said.
To Dreamer - I will never forgive you for stealing the pirate flag, ever.
To Drew, Akil, Boogie, and Mor thanks for all the great advice and tips. I've come out of here learning a whole lot.
To everyone else I missed (and I'm certain there are many) my apologies. I will miss you all!
Cheers to you and yours, for all your days.
Travis aka Seabass
You'll know where to find me.....
