And so it comes full circle.

Thanks Tex. It took (and takes) a lot of wisdom to walk the successful path you have.

I have no doubt you will be successful where ever you go and on what ever you do.

I hope we get a chance to talk further sometime.

Your name is synonymous with "Quality" in my mind.

Cheers my Friend :cheers:

Sad to see you go Tex; this is the only Forum I ever spend time on and you've done a great job with it over the years.
Best wishes to you and your future endeavers !

Thank you so much everyone for your extremely kind words and support! It makes me very happy to see how much you guys enjoy the forum, and although I never made addons for Orbiter, I'm thrilled that I was able to contribute to the community via this forum. While I originally set things up, we would not have had the same success without the support of you all, Martin, and of course our staff members. :cheers:

May we all live long and prosper! :tiphat:


Ah, my friend. You created THE add-on. The best of all add-ons; this forum. I've spent at least as many hours enjoying O-F as I have playing Orbiter. And that is a lot of hours!

That was beautiful.

:hesaid:
To be honest I've spent perhaps an order of magnitude more time here than playing/tinkering with Orbiter itself. :cheers:

Tex, this is the only place on the web which feels like being "at home". Your efforts in setting up and keeping this place are highly appreciated.

I sincerely wish you all the best for your future plans, I know you will succeed. Whenever there will be a chance, let me invite you to a beer (should I ever visit Texas, who knows :cheers:). Please stop by here from time to time, in this most fantastic community you helped welding togehter!

Take care Blake, you'll be on our minds! Good luck with all you do, man!

Rafael

:cheers:

No idea, but I know my speed!
I have not posted many times here but have been a member for a while and have been frequently visiting this site for most of that time. I have to say that this is one of the best communities on the web. Always willing to answer questions and very rarely any arrogant "oh God, not this again" posts (although, quite rightly, the search bar is frequently pointed out). This is not least due to Tex's fantastic leadership and management, it certainly won't be the same without you.
Thank you, and all the best in your future endeavors.

Tex
Good luck on your new way and may you succeed in all of your endeavours.
This community will not truly be the same without you, but I understand you.
It has been my pleasure to be here on the O-F, and even though I haven't been here for very long, I've got this feeling like this is my second family.
Farewell, mighty Tex! :)

:cheers::salute::bighug::thankyou:

(...Man, we really need a biking smily here! :))

Thanks very much, but I can't take credit for the transx tutorials. One of our members here by the name 'flytandem' actually made those, but I'm glad to hear they helped as I know they helped me immensely. :thumbup:

Haven't been around myself lately, but wanted to check in and add my thanks for picking up the pieces when M6 had its "major malfunction," and everything you've not only brought to the community, but creating the community for everyone to participate in. Best always...:cheers:

I may not have been so active but Tex, you have been a great leader making this community come together. I know the next person that will take the leadership will do as great as you did in your reign here in this community. I hope you the best wishes in your future, and hope to see you back here soon.

-Mike
