Writing is VERY difficult

Andy Weir did an amazing job with 'The Martian' even if its main premise is deeply flawed.

It's been a wild ride, for sure. When I got into this stuff in 2007, I was still on welfare and only worked part time as a church secretary. I was looking for a way to use my electronics background to help people avoid ending up with units like the cheap Deer power supply that killed a lot of my hardware back around the turn of the century. I had been helping people out on message boards with advice as best I could.

One day, I saw this review from a guy named jonnyGURU of an FSP unit I happened to own, and had some suggestions for how he might continue to review these little watt boxes. Somehow, this led to me being invited to review PSUs full time for his new site... this one.

Many years have passed indeed since then. In that time, a lot has changed in this game. No longer are we the only ones out there producing good reviews. No longer do we have to be quite so worried about whether or not Brand X is going to nuke our hard drives, blow up the planet, or cause the galaxy to be swallowed by a black hole.

And so, I've decided it's time to step away. I once had aspirations of being a novel writer, and tech writing has prevented me from doing so. The two are mutually exclusive for me.

I want to thank Jon and Tony for giving me the opportunity to do this for so long, and my fellow reviewers everywhere for keeping me on top of my game. And of course, my readers for tolerating my weird sense of humor and near complete lack of sanity for all this time... you poor, poor people.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a lot of reviews to get done before November.
It's been a hell of a ride over the years, may the fun only continue after this ride is over and the next starts.

On a personal're also not making me feel any younger. I think this leaves me and Lee as being the only two who predate you. I am going to find my needs new tennis balls.

Now then... who has cake?
As always Wolf , it has been a pleasure to have watched you over the years.

If you ever make it to Ontario, i'll give you my co-ordinates and personally bake you that cake (I must have owned a bakery in a former life because I am damn good at it).

Will all my respect,
