Some of you will be away for Chinese New Year. So, I will tell everyone now. I am leaving Taiwan, not Forumosa.com, after Chinese New Year. For good. My family and I are heading home to New Zealand.
It’s been a great Seven Years In Taiwan, hey, that sounds like a movie. Well, it will be a blog www.sevenyearsintaiwan.blogspot.com , that I will start once I get home. Don’t go there yet, it’s blank. I just put it up before someone steals the name.
I will miss this place, the good and the bad. I will especially miss being able to touch base with all of you on a regular basis. Forumosa.com has made a HUGE difference to my experience in Taiwan. Please support it.
I’d like to thank Maoman, Gus, and all those that make this place what it is.
To all of you that I have met in person, my life is richer for having all of you in my life. Special thanks to that guy in YingGe that gave me the push that helped me finish on a high note, JDsmith, I wish that there were more people like you on this earth.
Okami, I don’t know if you’re posting here still, but man, still can’t believe that you rode from Taipei to have coffee with me.
Spack, I know you don’t use that name anymore but I am not going to out you, I’ll miss you guys, and I know for sure that my Mrs. will remember your boy for some time to come.
All the local forumosans from down here and people that I’ve led and worked with. Thanks for making the labor worthwhile and helping me to build something special. Make it last.
Mr. He, I just know you’re going to make it big. If you’re ever in NZ, give me a call, we’ll do coffee or coffee bags.
All the guys that make me laugh on here… Sandman, RichardM… etc. You guys still owe me a keyboard. Spitting coffee doesn’t do much good to a keyboard.
Tigerman, you’ve really made your mark. Your style online inspired me to get my crap together. Debating with you sparked my mind to life again. I’ve never met you, I regret, (no regrets), … that’s unfortunate. I am sure that my time in Taiwan would have been all the richer for meeting you.
Durins Bane… ah, my source of inspiration. It’s all about the money. Seriously though, your success has inspired me.
I am sure that I am forgetting some people here. I am sure, no doubt, that they will be posting in a moment or two.
Relax, I’ll be adding to the thread as we go along. I’ll still be around, perhaps not active anymore, but you can’t keep me away from this place, the site that is.
