    Well I haven’t really played much the past year and my real life has had a lot of up and downs so I figure its time for Tek to hang up the sword and shield and retire.

    I will miss the companionship I have had the past years from all the players on many different shards but especially Lake Austin the place I’ve always considered my home in game.

    I would like to thank KGB for taking me in those many years ago when I was a young noob running around with a pointy stick killing mongbats, they have been the best guild I’ve know and its been a pleasure serving with them all these years.

    I’d like to thank UMP for welcoming me in the past couple years and showing me around the new dungeons and letting me remember what fun group hunts could be again.

    I’d like to thank and remember the members of DSR who introduced me to the Fel life style and large guild events, I miss many of the players from there who have left over the years.

    I will miss many of you, maybe even Slacky. I know I will forget names if I try to thank and say good bye to everyone I want to so I will just say thank you everyone for making my time here special in many different ways, you know who you are.

    If any of you want to contact me I can be reached at [email protected] I’ve added a few people to facebook already so just email me and I will send you the info if you’d like to stay in touch.

    Tek, sorry to see you leaving for good. I'm sure that this is a hard decision, especially knowing how much you will miss Slack.
    I understand about the companionship aspect of UO, that is what brought me back after this last year.
    I wish you well in all you do and hope that someday you will miss the UO feel and come back.
    Take care.

    I always hate to see people leave but I hope that you just make it a temporary leave of absence and return as things settle down. One doesn't have to play all the time to be part of a group. When you come back to play, UMP will look forward to taking you out on more hunts. :)

    I feel really touched that you mentioned me by name (kinda) but I gotta say I find it difficult to believe that you can leave us and to show you this:
    I Cain't quit you!​

    This is quite touching - reminds me of a moment in time when I just could not quit hitting that rewind button .....

    Sorry to see players leave - take care.

    Aww, Tek - sorry to see you go. I can hardly believe you are leaving for good. I think Restless is right in saying they always come back, but still.
    I'm not happy about this. I hope things settle down for you soon.

    The good thing about Tekkie is that he's like herpes, no matter how bad you wanna get rid of him, he'll always come back!
