Jopari - Retired - So Long, And thanks for all the fish!
« on: September 02, 2019, 06:37:09 PM »
Just wanted to say it's an honor to have been a part of this forum all these years. It's been great meeting so many of you. I never expected to make real-life friends through an online forum but that actually happened.


My life is too busy to contribute in even a minor way moving forward, so i am officially retiring from pop culture cons and the forum. I might still make it to a con every few years but i don't think SDCC is in the cards. If anyone happens to end up at any infosec conferences or training, thats where i'll be mostly.

Thank you to everyone who has helped me or been helped by me. It is a blessing to be able to help others.

Wait you're not doing comic-con anymore, thanks for the heads up buddy, I figure you would have told your roommate.

Wow! An original OG says bye. Take care Jopari! It was a pleasure and your help and contributions were enormous, especially in the early days! Your legacy will always be present here from the group buys, the hotel scrips, and more! Everyone is indebted to you whether they've had a direct touch with you or not! Peace.

Jeremiah, I am very glad to have met you through here and to have got to know you. I wish you the very best and hope that  some of your Infoseek conferences coincide with local cons out my way and we can arrange a meet up.
Best of Luck.
