Now this is mostly a personal message. I wanted to let everyone that care about whats going on with me.
Im sure some of you have notice me not being around alot lately. I want to ensure everyone Im not quiting or leaving. Im kinda taking a break. All of a sudden minecraft isnt interesting me as much anymore. It seemed to happen over night. Im not saying, by any means, Im done with it. Just taking some time away from it. I have not talked this over with anyone from the team. To them im just not around as much. Its just this time of year. I am married with a large family. I spend alot of time visiting them this time of year. I am also taking the rest of my vacation time that i have left for the year this last week of December. This time will be spent with family and doing some stuff that keeps me from sitting in front of this computer.
I have many things I want to get into. Some of you last week saw the new computer build I did, I have always wanted to build computers. Im finally finding my self in the position to do it. I did another last night. I also find I dont like the office setup I have. Thats why last night my wife also bought me a new large L shaped desk. From this I decided Im going to redo my office. This is going to be a large ass undertaking. Also meaning my computer will not be up 24/7 like it is now. This all is what has my attention right now. And I tend to focus on one thing and bust ass on it. Thats what I have done with DNS for the last year. To look at DNS from when it started to now is amazing. How far its come. Just wow. Thats cause of its fans and just hard work. I want to say its all the fans and thats a very important part. But a massive amount of work has gone, and still goes into this pack. And because of that work Im happy knowing that for the time Im away the pack is in good hands and I can afford to take some time.
Really in short dont worry about me. Most of you probably dont even know how I am and thats fine. But for those that do care. I will return. I can still be reached on the forums, irc, and skype (for those that have it)
As for my team, I want to thank you guys for all you have done this year. And what a year its been.
The work you guys have done is what makes DNS a standard for other pack to look up to.
IamOmicron - My right hand man, awesome dude! I would of stopped doing this a long time ago with you.
And Darkhax that I want to say something a little special about:
for those that dont know, I dont take donations for DNS. But at the same time its not free. I pay the costs myself and have no problem doing so. In December it was time to renew our domain and server. We as a team talked about it and I said I will pay it. Darkhax sent me some cash through paypal and never even told me. I never check that thing and just saw it yesterday. He had sent it middle of Nov! Dark and I have never seen eye to eye on almost anything, and as many times as we "fight" about stuff I like having someone with a completely different outlook on things beside me. Helps me to see the other side. But with all that a side him throwing me some money to keep DNS going show what a true friend to the pack he is. And you should all thank him!!
I have two other things Im working on right now DNS/Minecraft related. I will finish them by the end of this week and will have them out to you guys soon. They will be awesome. More to come on these soon!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyways happy holidays everyone and I thank you for the great year and cant wait to see whats in store for next year!
