Sad to hear you are stopping PSU Reviews.
But best of luck, have fun with whatever you will be doing after PSU Reviews.

Especially on my Birthday...

I've tried teaching several box elder bugs, but they just keep getting distracted and crawling off to god knows where in the middle of the oscilloscope lesson.

Wow, a bit of a news item to read on my birthday. (Was yours yesterday Stefan, or did you mean that yours is in November?)

I wish you all the best Jeremy! (I'm glad to at least be able to put a name behind Wolfie, hehe. :-) Thank you very much, I learnt a tremendous amount reading your reviews. It's interesting reading your story, and how out of pretty much nothing this has arisen. If your future endeavors have anything like the dedication and hard work that you put into your reviews, the books are going to be of high quality! May they be enjoyed by many!

God bless, man. :-)

Don't know if you'll read this but I'll jump and squeal like a fangirl if you did


Oklahoma Wolf,I thank you for all the efforts,hard work, and time that you spent in reviewing power supplies. I found this website in 2015 and since then has been fascinated with computer power supplies. On the way,I even learned how to repair/troubleshoot/replace power supplies from the things I learned from your Death of A Gutless wonder reviews and diagnosing review sample defects (like ripple bugs etc.). It's still sad that you must go but as long you're happy on where your life takes you, We will always be grateful and happy for what you did here and we wish you good luck on your future!



P.S:

Can't wait to read your novel when it gets published sometime in the future.

(Deeply sad inside because it's 10 days after I turn 18)

Man, I've always loved your humor and writing style. You have shown that you can become one of the big names in the PSU reviewing business while still being light-hearted. Humor is the best thing.

The good thing is that you can safely say your (and Jon's) mission has been largely accomplished. I'm not going to lie when I say that the PSUs in the reviews these past couple of years have started getting so good that I have just been longing for some PSU that will cause chaos. But seemingly it is true that thanks to your reviews you have made people all around the world more aware of the importance of power supply quality, and henceforth the companies have been putting out better power supplies.

Despite being probably still a small community on this website, I know there is a definite butterfly effect (is that what it's called?) that has made the knowledge spread elsewhere.

Thank you for all your years of reviews, and I apologize for the times I annoyed you with my queries on the third decimal place digit in your vreg percentages.

Please tell me you're going to "go out with a bang" - a roundup of gutless wonders would make an excellent last review.
