    Fare thee well!

    Hi all,

    Well, times have changed and unfortunately my days of spare time to devote to forum life have drawn to an end. Radical upheavals are occuring in my life and to that end I must bid my farewell.

    I have enjoyed my time here more that I can possibly express and will miss the camaraderie, tourneys, ladder and all the other assorted shenanigans immensely. I may be able to look in once in a while to see what's happening, but my time as an active member here is over. I've never been one of the doomsday sort, or one to concern myself with changes over the forums. I've been here almost from the start and have enjoyed (and indeed still enjoy) all of the differing periods.

    I consider many of you friends and indeed have had the privilege to meet a bunch in the flesh, although perhaps I'm the last one still here of that bunch...no wait, Votan still pokes his head in periodically.

    I'm not giving up the game per se, although it is no longer sealed in my CD drive and will no doubt continue at a much more relaxed pace towards my Septavirate and HC Grail.

    Speaking of which, apologies for those of you for whom I was updating Septavirate progress, but I won't be able to maintain that either. I'm not a flash in the pan guy and really intended to see that commitment through at the time, but circumstances change and I can only apologise to you for that.

    On Friday I'm back to Melbourne, Australia after almost 4.5 years working in the U.S and the U.K on assignment. It's been so long it'll be like emigrating somewhere. Combine that with my impending marriage in 2.5 months in South Africa and the challenges of a new project almost amounting to a career change, and perhaps you'll understand where my time needs to be devoted.

    All the very best to you all within and without the game, and hopefully I'll drop by for one in the EMB every now and again!

    Take care,

    Butz. :teeth:

    well when it comes to the end this is just a online meeting place for people with the same need to talk about their favourite game.

    when real life knock on the door you got to get up and open.

    that said i have always liked what you have brough to the forums butzull and you will be missed but i hope that you will have a great further life and that you might one day be able to come back if its so only to say hi to those of us that stay behind.

    have fun and take care:howdy:

    Sorry to see you go mate. Maybe when you get back to Melbourne you can join me for a Pizza in Carlton on a Friday night? :D

    I'd be happy to take over tracking the Septavirate for people - i have web space that isn't being used for much.

    [email protected] if you feel like sending me the files :)

    Well, Butzull, it's been great being on the forum with you in the past few months--and the outflux of great members continues. :(

    Well, best of luck in all your future endeavors! I hope life treats you well and you drop in from time to time. I hope the move goes well, and congrats on the upcoming marriage! :)

    -Joseph

    Sorry to see you go Butz :(

    Drop by every now and then and don't be a stranger, and of course, don't even try to tempt the lure of Sacred, jump over to that side ;D

    Sad to see you go Butz, but hey, I'd trade D2 for a personalized RL elite unique too ;)

    Aw crap Butz! This is worse than an HC RIP story... Wait, this is actually better :)

    I figured something pretty big was up when you hadn't posted in a month and the Sept wasn't updated. I understand huge life changes and wish you all the best in yours. Sorry we never got the opportunity to meet in RL, but maybe one day.

    We will miss you here in the SPF. You've been an excellent poster - a man with a calming logic during the various firestorms. And my personal fav, you are a long time hard core HC player. This leaves one less of us to carry the torch.

    Take care my friend and Godspeed.

    Jeff

    Like AlterEgo, I noticed you hadn't posted in the last month. The Hardcore community here will one of its elder statesman. I think you may have been the last of the "Immortals" group still posting here.

    Congratulations on your upcomcing marriage, and I hope your move back to Australia goes well. If nothing else, you can look forward to some better weather. :D

    Goodbye, and thanks for all the fish! (Curse--that would've worked better on Nightfish's leaving thread, wouldn't it? Ah well...).
