Plan F: Goodbyeee...

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I'm calling an end to my interaction with this forum. It's been fun and I've enjoyed interacting with many of the fine participants over the years. I'm learned a lot and I hope I've been able to pass on some of my knowledge to others.

Goodbye Soli, I have enjoyed reading your posts, agreeing with most & learning from your wisdom.

 

Take care & all the best.

Sorry to hear that. The forums will be diminished by your absence. Take care.

Blah that makes me sad. Perhaps I'll have to finally retire the use of futurama quotes as responses. I liked some of your prior comments regarding the volume occupied by optical drives and the iPad mini hardware projections. They were cool.

It's been a pleasure. Hope you'll change your mind. I for one will sorely miss you. You were a voice of reason on here.

I thought you were just at WWDC, trying to make sense of the programming mind flip you wrote you needed. But he, leaving, that's ... hmm, can't find the right words. Sorely missed, you are. Already. This has been such a vibrant week and I would have loved to read your opinion, and make use of your links.

Sad to read this. 13k posts on your 2nd account, 1st one was, what, 25k?

Hope this is not permanent!

Please don't go! You're one of a core group that are really worth talking to on this site and that group is one of the main reasons I like coming here!

I just found out about this from dasanman69's signature line.

One of the pillars of Reason around here, and the chief exemplar of patience.

You will be missed.

Hey you are a better man than me. I wish I could bail but it is sort of an addiction. Hopefully we will meet again. Perhaps you will reappear with dos equis next time.

Damn, I just found out.

This IS a loss, although, based on his username, I am confused how he can leave when there's only one of us.

All the best in your future endeavours!

Wow. I don't know what to say. Except that I truly hope you'll be back some day.

Au revoir, soli-mate. (Although, I don't mean to imply that I am in the same class).

Solips -  Just picked up this story.  It's with heavy shoulders that I say "goodbye" to you.  You were one of the reasons I still kept coming back.  Hopefully, we'll see you drop in.

Take a break.  I know I could use one here at AI at times.

Damn it.

 

Another great mind lost to the porn industry.

post #17 of 26

Big Shame. I was wondering where the hell you were, but as you usually disappear over product launches (sensible) I expected you to reappear. Just saw this now and it is not good news. You were the voice of intelligent reason and incisive thought and the place will be less interesting without you. 

But I gotta say - go put your brilliant mind to make the world a better place. The AI forums is probably not where anybody's future lies not the place where any souls will ever see the light ;)

Cheers

Thanks so much for your contribution. Onwards and upwards. :)

 

EDIT: Will miss you hugely, very sad to see you go. If you are sharing your knowledge and wisdom elsewhere in particular, I'd be very happy to know where.

 

Best wishes Soli.

You'll be missed. You're one of the few that doesn't automatically dismiss a alternate POV.

Well, you did give us a heads-up, so I shouldn't be surprised, nor sad. Still, I think I am. But you're leaving for a reason, and one that makes sense. Thank you for your views, information and humor. I will miss it, here, but am fortunate nonetheless.

Buena suerte en tu español.
