    I don't really want to get too personal, but I am sorry to say, I am going to have to leave the community indefintely.

    My wife sent me a couple of txt msgs that are the kind that tear out your heart and make you realize a phone isn't so important anymore.

    I want to say thnx to everyone who has helped me and thanks to everyone who have used my themes in the past and present.

    I will.

    Port BE, RL, and PP to Sapphire since I said I would
    Finish the theming guide for df.net b/c I said I woulld
    And keep alt dark adw theme updated b/c people paid for it.

    I will be back at some point, but just don't know when that will be.

    Thank you everyone, and I'm sorry..

    Real life comes before any of this. Yes, we all love it, but you gotta take care of whatever is going on in your life. We all have things happen sometimes that throws a monkey wrench in our life (I know that all too well, trust me bro). You are respected and appreciated by many who don't even know you personally, and I'm sure that carries into how you are in person. It takes a real man to come in here and explain that he has problems that need taken care of on a public forum like this, because so many people respect what you do here. I don't think we've bumped into each other in these forums, but I'm pulling for you so that everything ends up alright for you in your personal life. Thanks for your contributions to the community, they have not gone unappreciated. Good luck dude, we look forward to your return some day.

    Hey the best to you.

    You are absolutely right, the phone is fun and addictive but it just that......a phone. Go take care of the important stuff!

    I appreciate all you have contributed to the Droid. I pray that all works out for you.

    Good luck. You're doing the right thing and I'm sure things will still be the same if you're able to come back. Sometimes we lose sight of what's important. There's nothing wrong with taking care of your business and putting yourself first for a while. Take care...

    I know exactly what you mean, there is a fine line here and family has to come first, a lot of times it is tough. It is so easy to spend a whole weekend on the Droid/Forum and let real life pass you by, and it is a process learning to balance it all out, the best to you and I hope to see you back one day

    Family and real life always comes first. Best of luck to you and your family. The community will still be here if you decide to come back. The work you have done in this community is awesome. Your themes have always been my favorite. I've used both your blue and your purple theme.

    Never used one of your projects, but they always looked great - just didn't fit my style. Hope for the best, these fights never last. My parents have them all the time, they been married for 5 years and together for like 25 :)

    Thanks for your hard work, Alternate Dark is what made me finally leave BB to try Sapphire and I'm a huge fan. Hope everything works out for the best.

    Wow man, sorry to see you go. I hope things get worked out for you soon. Your themes are awsome!! But as with all things here personal life comes before a phone. Do this for fun and it'll all be ok. Good luck to you and hope to see you back soon.
