For quite a few years now, I’ve been a helper in the IRC channel #mIRC on the network Undernet. One of my privileges there was the ability to help users on a daily basis and make a difference to users all over the world.
Through my presence there, I’ve learned heaps about computers, administrated a bot network with services people have relied on daily and most importantly made friends that I care for very much.
Life has a nasty habit of changing, and so does the person living the life. Over the course of the last year, my dedication towards the channel decreased drastically, and the passion slowly died out until I saw no other option than to leave.
It’s been a great time, albeit at times a roller coaster ride. A great era comes to an end, and I find it’s time to go explore new grounds and broadened my horizon. I will most surely miss it from time to time, but it’s not like I’m quitting IRC. I would never dream of doing that, as I have many great friends.
I would also like to send out thanks to all those that stood by me in this somewhat emotional decision. I won’t mention names, but I hope that you know if you read this.
