So why I chosen to post that I am leaving?
- Firstly for some finality, having written this I am far more likely to actually do it and not find myself drifting back here
- Secondly to wish all of you here farewell.
I haven't helped keep this forum alive myself - although I've been a member here for some 15 years I have been inactive for long periods and don't post a great deal even when I am active. I have enjoyed sharing some of my wacky experiments though, like back in 2001 when I used cardboard ducting so my CPU fan was drawing in air from outside the case and increase my overclock (I wonder if Dell were lurking here and stole my idea as they started doing similar in their PC's about a year later). Or there was the time when I ran a fanless PC that was submerged in engine oil.
There have been and are great people on this forum who have compassionately given their time to help others and I thank all of you for everything you have done, especially when you have helped advise me
My aim is to log in a few times over the next week to pick up on any threads I'm participating in and then disappear.
