Looks like it's finally time to hang up my hat.

Post by Lord Flasheart » Tue Dec 03, 2013 7:16 pm

My friends,

Unfortunately with the recent issues that caused chaos with my PC, it is with regret that I announce that my hard drive was wiped, and I've lost all of my ys stuff. Oweing to the fact I was playing with the cards quite close to the chest with my later projects this means that the detailed buccaneer model is also completely lost.

Now apparently, my old hard drive is on the way to me in the post, but it's been 10 days, and I've still yet to see anything come through the letterbox that isn't a bank statement. So, it's all a bit up in the air, but one way or the other, I think it's time to retire. If I get the hard drive back Ill either finish what I've got with the bucc or I'll release it for someone else to finish.

Will update as soon as there's a new development.

Cheers guys
Ben a.k.a Flash

It'd be sad to see you retire. In any case, thanks for all the amazing work you've done for the community.

My body is ready.

You could just stick around you know. Be cool and all that, no need to leave us.
I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

I would, but in the new year I'm just not going to have enough time to do anything. I've taken on a couple of projects that could stand to make me a fair amount if money so naturally I have more incentive to persue those.

Thanks for all youve done LF. We will all miss you and your mods. Enjoy the real world.
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

Well, I can't blame you for feeling that way when your hard drive was wiped. When mine caught a virus, it seemed to have erased all of my files, including ALL of my Ys related stuff, be it addons and the game itself. I felt like the world is going to end.
But I really hope this wouldn't be the last time we'll ever see you. So, best wishes and good luck. ;)

This is indeed very sad :(

It has been an honor knowing you Flash, especially a privilege seeing your fast climb from humble beginnings to legendary status. Like everyone else is saying, the community will always invite you in. Take care Squadron leader.
