    I was away from the internet for a week and AlphaTech is gone? (or so I've heard) What happened? Is he ok? He helped me with most of my problems...
    Can someone clear this up for me? Please reply...:(

    I apoligize

    If you read the thread I posted...I was wrong and I apoligize. Alphas just taking some time off...he'll be back...

    Lets hope so.

    Something about censors...go to the site discussions...thats where i found out. Queen Cobra apparently said Alpha was banned...then arn closed my thread and said that he was welcome back...otherwise i have no idea what happened. I'm thoroughly confused.

    Well, I hope he isn't banned, rude he may be, thats why they call em Massholes (as in MA mass). Alphas cool, and he can help with problems, a little flame happy, but tension have been high after MacWorld and then .mac and now the powermacs, everybody needs a break.

    AlphaTech is gone for good
    <rant>
    he got fed up with all the newbies whining(his words not mine) and decided that it was high time to leave. i know this because i was chatting with him while he was making the decision.
    he has logged out and says he will not come back. he will be elsewrer on the net if you have a desperate nead to talk to him you can just send him an email, i think it is in his porfile.

    i feel that we have lost one of our most prolofic posters who always has something funny/useful/ occasionally (or often) rude to say.
    some of us are glad he is gone while some of us feel that we have lost a helpful tech. but personally i beleve that he may someday return and bring back a little bit to spice into the forums once again. </rant>

    Wow! I never would have guessed he would have left over whining. Given all of the disagreements/battles/flamewars I've seen him in (and battled against him in :)), I would have hoped for a more grand exit. Not that I want or wanted to see him go.

    This is a shocker for me.

    He was annoying sometimes, but it was fun when he opened up a can of whoop (hmm, uhh) ....butt on some unexpecting newbie. I will miss his claims of the Harley being the ultimate motorbike. Looks like the rumbler has riden off into the sun set.

    i, for one, am skipping the farewell parade. i regard him in much the same way as mischief. funny to a point, but mostly a nuisance and very rude. "newbie whiners" is a hilarious way of putting it, since i never considered anyone on this board more childish than he.

    I closed down another one of these threads because I don't think we should talk about why we liked or (especially) didn't like another user.

    alphatech has chosen to depart, and let's just end it there... no need to be rude towards him.

    My thoughts exactly, he was just a poster in a forum, if he stays, leaves of returns who cares! It's not important. :rolleyes:

    spikey, kela, and john123 were once the post leaders...but i don't know in which order during 2000 and 2001

    then it was me in 2001 sometime

    then it was you in 2002 sometime

    then it was dukestreet most recently

    but has duke been around long or did he come on board sometime in 2002...i will go look now;)

    ok, duke has been around a year in november...that will be his one year here

    ...and at 18+ posts per day, he is the batting champion here, too...at least i think so unless there is a newbie who just came on here and made 19 posts on their first day today or 38 posts on their first two days starting yesterday, etc...

    and eye, your two year is coming up in a little over four months!...we should hold a party for you since only blakespot and i have seen that

    Come on!

    Read back through the thread. There is no reason to continue the banter any further. He is either here lurking, posting, or not. The point is, that it doesn't effect us, so lets move on, and go say welcome to a newbie.
