    In case you hadn't heard, Mr. Knapp is closing up shop after all these years and at the end of May Home Theater Talk will be no more.

    His site and HTF were my main website intros to the Home Theater world and it's always sad to see an era end, but life will go on and people will find other hangouts.

    Just wanted those who may have known or been a part of the Knapp/HTT world to have a chance to give Mike a well deserved shout out.

    Priorities in life do have a tendency to change over time. I don't remember my password, otherwise, I would've posted some comments over there. Anyhow, I wish Mike well in any future endeavors.

    Thanks Alf and Crawdaddy.

    I am not going totally away, just fading out. [​IMG]

    Thanks for remembering me.

    Mike - I send all my best wishes. I know how that is. I haven't posted here or at your site more than once or twice a year for the past 5 years. Life really evolves and we sometimes must step up and embrace those changes.

    All my best Mike.

    Mike, your influence during the "early years" is unmistakable. You've helped more people than you can possibly know, and you have more friends than you can possibly count. Whatever life brings your way, those things will always be true.

    Mike,

    I do remember my password and after something went wrong with my previous post at HTT, I'll try to say something there as well.

    Just two words here: squeeze, pinch. [​IMG]

    Hey Mike.

    I did not post a lot over there (or over here for that matter) but I really enjoyed the energy you brought to any discussion.

    Take care you old Whippersnapper!

    Hey, Mike, while I never joined up (couldn't because I was using MSNTV for a long time) I did have the pleasure of meeting you once and I wish you the best, your one of the originals around here, dude. [​IMG]

    BTW, how's the ol' water heater (what Mike calls his subwoofer for those that don't know) hanging in there, still kickin' or have you upgraded to something larger yet? [​IMG]

    Why doesn't the guy just take a break and let others deal w/ the site?

    Why is he taking the ball with him?

    We're NOT discussing here the way Mike's site is managed, nor any of Mike's decisions in that respect.

    Thanks for understanding.

    Thanks Cees,

    Tom,

    I cannot just walk away from it. It is too much a part of me. If it is there, I will be checking in and I wont be able to not participate in the administration. I have tried doing that before, several times.

    Closing it was the only way. I wish it wasn't but I know myself too well.

    There are plenty of balls left. [​IMG]
