    19 years and six months for me. Feels really painful to have to call time, but, as Arnie said, 'we'll be back'.

    PHEW! Reading the first few lines can make you go into bizarre conclusions but hey the NEW WEBSITE is coming and we will be happy to join. Thanks Sir David for the cool website through the years where we have been getting free tech reviews without any subscriptions. We all know how hard it is to manage such a website but through the friendship of the tech community that some are here have been free to share their expansive knowledge through the exciting forums. Truly I have learnt so much through this site which I came to know through a random Google search.

    Appreciate all of the time, effort and energy that's gone into Hexus over the years.

    I wish all contributors great happiness and success in whatever comes next - and hope that what rises from the ashes of Hexus, borrows some of the character (and characters) we've come to enjoy over the years.

    Thanks for everything guys. Hope the new site does well. Not many pure sites of Hexus's ilk around these days.

    For all those years bringing us the tech news and helping us discover new devices and software.

    I am very, very sad to see this website ending as this was mine everyday go to website.

    But I will respect your decision.

    Well, David, I wish you all best in the future, health, happiness, and love.

    May the Force be with you!
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Sorry to hear you are done, especially at bit-tech.net has shut up shop on the same day (you guys going to do something together?).

    Re: Cheer up! It’s not the end of the world…

    so.. I read this news and was slightly shocked about it, then read the bit about the new site and Parm 'n Tarinder being the bosses of it, then went YAY!!
    then wondered why they didn't just take over the running of this site?

    could be that new site is going to have better video stuff, updated forum things (with better picture hosting) and increased social site interaction? so a massive redesign of this place and probably break half the stuff on it. or just start again from scratch with shiny things.

    then I thought 'wonder if the people over at the site i usually post on know about this yet?'
    so clicked on the forums shortcut linky I have on toolbar and checked new posts, found Zaks thread https://forums.hexus.net/general-dis...-you-back.html. thought, oh its already been posted.

    then had the dawning realisation i was being a confused idiot again...


    and thats that.

    HEXUS and bit-tech are owned by the same company.
    We spent a huge effort keeping them entirel;y separate. Very succesful too.

    they both cease to publish new content or advertise as of today
