    One of the changes I'm sorry to see. Hexus has been one of the best Tech Sites, helped me many times, having a UK bias was/is a bonus.

    All the best for the future

    OMG - Will be sad to see this site go :-( But sign of the times.

    Wishing David every luck and also a BIG thank you for allowing myself to run the Pifast Challenge benchmark leaderboard way back in 2003 until it got daft with cheating submissions something I much enjoyed at the time.

    Goodbye Hexus, you and BitTech were the only 2 sites I actually read my tech news from.

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

    Even though the forums are staying it feels like a HUGE part of my life has now become a bit of a black hole. I have been modding here for around 20 years now and HEXUS has always been my homepage since then so it's time to change that I guess.

    Good luck to David in his new ventures as well as Tarinder & Parm with their new site which I imagine will do great with honest trusted reviews

    So what to do now!?......

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

    Just did something I never thought I'd do...deleted my bookmarks for the front pages to Hexus & Bit Tech.

    Bit-Tech going came as no surprise, site has been practically dead for months and then their ace modder Alex Banks who made awesome youtube vids disappeared without notice, so the writing was on the wall, but still.

    Thought Hexus was safe, though...

    If there's one good thing to come out of all of this, it's very cool to see how HEXUS has influenced so many people's lives. So many people doing really interesting things, with HEXUS being one of their gateways into the world of tech.

    Going to miss the Hexus website. Looking forward to the new website from Tarinder and Parm.

    Very best of luck Tarinder and Parm & even if what I have learned in my time here (as a non-techie interloper) could fit on the back of an, um, what are those micro card things called again, it's not for want of a vast resource. Seriously; a lot of useful stuff has gone in and stayed in, if I ever have needed help or to read up on something here's where I come, & very fruitfully too. End of an era.

    Woah, that's not the kind of news I was expecting to see.

    All the best to everyone in their new adventure(s)!

    I certainly never expected to see this, but I can certainly understand that all things must come to an end.

    Thank You for creating HEXUS and for all the news and information you've provided us enthusiasts with over the years (as well as all of the opportunities to win something in the competitions, even if I was never one of the lucky ones to actually do so).

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

    News of this reached me on the grapevine and I thought I might as well log back in one last time and say thanks and farewell, best wishes etc.

    @DR the line "As I face the final curtain" sounds ominous. I hope this just refers to the site and not to wider health etc. Your site taught me how to build a decent PC, and the community here have helped me sort out most tech things ever since. I have fond memories of my Hexus days so thanks, and I hope all goes well for the future.

    I posted a thread on OcUK WRT,as some people over there used to be on here and vice-versa. Will repost some messages directed towards DR from some older members.

    Bit sad to see this nerd corner go away

    Since the golden age with PC's to now is quite an amazing feat.

    ALthough I never hardly commented, I checked Hexus daily, I have enjoyed the many articles here, and Hexus was always the place for a rundown of the new tech.
