.....not only one of the best tracks ever created by Queen, but my parting thoughts I know not a lot of people will care much but after many years being here I would like to say I have made a few virtual friends, some I don't talk to for an age, some I talk to daily but I know they are there if I need them. Some people have used my free bots and some, and I thank you all (another Queen lyric there ) if you have purchased my other bots. Some people have pissed me off so much I would gladly punch a hole in their ribs to pull out their dark skanky heart and there are people I would like to take out for a beer, say chin up and get back on the horse. I am, like a few others here, reaching a ripe old age and, unlike a few of the big dogs, I can put my hand on heart and say I am shit at marketing! I have lost more than I would like to think about now trying different things, finding something that sort of works only to crash and burn a few weeks later. Am I bitter about that, nope, I have had a blast and without a few people here slapping me upside the head occasionally and telling me not to be a twat I wouldn't of tried so much. However, there becomes a time in your life when you finally realise that money isn't everything and I think that time is now for me. I rather go walking in the woods with my family, forage for food, track animals (working on getting the rifle side of things sorted!) and enjoy time with my kids who are nearing the age when they will not need their old man round so much fairly soon. Its been a tough old decision but as of this weekend I won't be making any more commercial bots - I will keep the ones that people have bought going for as long as possible, I won't dump and run, but there will be nothing new. Over the next few days I will be shutting off the website s(License servers etc will still be there!) Fatboy is no longer balls deep in bot making. I will be keeping my hand in the tech arena with my sysadmin clients, I have a few and love figuring out system problems, and I will still be coding (back to my old fave Perl I think!) to stop the grey matter turning to mush between my ears but there will be nothing coming outwards from me, The Bot Shop, Auto IM or Bot Ninja. In case you have got this far, and I am impressed, this old man is feeling pushed out of the market - I see daily the new kids on the block and there are some very skilled people floating around (there are some ass hats but most people can see through them - please don't pay them a buck!) that have been filling in the void where people are after automation software and I wish them well in the years to come, they know who they are and they are worth their fees. Be kind to the good ones and leave the chuff at the door. I will float through BHW now and again just to see what you lot get up to, swear at the dicks, laugh with most of the rest but its good to see some people succeeding on the internet. One day I will save up enough money to start the business I always wanted to, a small plant nursery, selling veg and fruit plants to the public. How offline can you get. Hey, if it ever gets that far perhaps I can pay one of you guys to make me a decent web page Until that day, if indeed it ever arrives, like I have said I will enjoy my time and family. To those I have fought with, thanks for taking me on - some of you made sense to me in the end and I was infact being an asshole, to those who are just idiots then hopefully natural selection will kick in soon and the gene pool will not be infected with your DNA much longer To those I call friends, keep going fellas, the world is your oyster and those who I know are actually making money and not just BSing the world saying they are, you have my utmost admiration - its a tough job and you guys have nailed it. To the newbies - learn how that search button works, don't try to get spoonfed and get used to long worthless hours wasted in front of the screen. Those of you destined for bringing in the cash, hang in there, those who think its a quick win give up now, McDonalds is probably hiring and you will make more cash. To the mods - you have a shit job keeping this place in order so thanks for trying your best and good luck for the future. Thats it, the last bollocks spouted by Fatboy. Take it easy people and don't forget - life is a gift, enjoy it any way you can. Me, I am off for a walk in the woods with the family tomorrow so its time for this old fucker to get his cocoa sorted and think about an early night. BHW - you rock.
