  • Bye...

    Well I'm not no beloved authority like Vel or anything, and I don't think I've built much of a reputation one way or the other, but I've been around awhile, and so what the heck, might as well say goodbye. I'm probably not giving up SMAC, actually, but I am giving up the internet. So I won't be around anymore. I'll miss this place. I had pretty much given up on SMAC before I found it, and then coming across this site (not to mention Vel's guide) pulled me back in.

    Anyway, I guess there's not much to say. Bye all, have fun, don't play too long.

    HP; you'll be missed around here!

    I, for one, valued your opinion and insite on various topics concerning SMAC/X. All the best!!

      HP, you will be missed. You asked good questions and gave good answers to other questions. I hope that you will drop by from time to time. We need all the good SMACers that we can get. Stay happy and keep exploring the SMAC universe.

        HP, you've been a reference for me in my sporadic visits here.
        You'll be cited and remembered.
        Have a nice life, till we next meet.

          Take care, and don't forget to come back to visit us -the hopelessly addicted.

            You will be missed. All the best and stop by now and then just for a visit.

              Sorry to see you go, HP - just in case you're checking back on this thread - you will be missed. I think the majority of people here held you in pretty high esteem, and it is a shame that you are leaving us.
              We're back!

                Nov1999 to Jan01, pretty good lifespan right there.

                No reputation? Probably all, if not the strong majority, of people at this forum (guests included) know who you are and are sorry to see you go.

                    You made a terrific contribution. Your posts are always very informative. I still have and use your "Teeny Tech Tree".

                    You will be missed. Make sure you keep having fun!

                      You'll be back. Current issues come and go, but enjoyment in SMAC is forever, even if it takes a few months to rediscover the fact. ("slowly, like primitives, but accelerated thousands of times")

                      I know you came here when I began to zone out a while ago, but I've found your ideas fascinating and compeling. From one SMACer to another, I'll miss you being on the boards.

                        Another bright light, and voice of civility, lost. I wish you well, and hope that you do return...

                            I agree with the others - there is no way you are unknown. You have given us huge amount of useful information and sparked a huge amount of useful debate. You will be missed.

                              I'm sorry to hear you are leaving! You will be missed!
                              Do come back from time to time when you can.
                              As you see I've given up SMAC about a year ago and now I can post and play a bit sometime again... Try to follow my tradition
