    End of an era, I've been coming here almost every day for over 13 years and it is always the first place I check for the latest tech news. Thank you for running such a great site all these years and I wish you all the best for the future.

    Its so routine for me to keep checking Hexus throughout the day. I've done it 3 times already today. Man this will be a hard habit to break. I've no idea where I'll go next for tech news. So many other sites just don't feel authentic (paid reviews etc).

    Wow not expecting to see this hit the front page of Hacker News. Definitely feels like the end of an era.

    David you should be very proud of what you achieved with the site. I feel proud of having a least a few of those 148,579 stories in my name too.

    Good luck with the next phase of your life with whatever you have planned next.

    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!?......
    Honestly i don't know, with no new content to bring in new people I fear that the forums will just wither so this is the long death.

    This tbh could well be what happens. I say leave them live to let people find old content (I often hunt for old nuggets) and hopefully maintain Scan shipping perks, but migrate to the new gaff if nec. If I'd known it only had a few months left to run I'd have taken that mod role when offered! Prob still the right call turning it down mind given how the last few months have been.

    "Tarinder and Parm, who I’ve had the immense pleasure of working with for a combined 33 years, will be continuing the HEXUS legacy with a new website."
    Will the forum not be attached to that, perhaps?

    Thoroughly expect so, but part of me thinks they may consider porting the forums to the new site. Would be an excellent way to transfer a large section of the user base and give the new place a kick start.

    Anyone fancy starting a Brexit thread... rile the mods into locking a thread for old time's sake?

    Good luck with everything. I'm so sad I only made an account with this community when it was too late. But your news has been my go-to for such a long time!
