This is to inform you that over the last few months I have been contemplating departing all together from DI.net. I had spoken with Dan / Nick about this last year, and most recently, I had made a few comments on the phone to both.
I have been able to maintain the servers, bills and the decals, but even as of late I have started falling behind because of real life. I had been approached by companies in the past to sell the site, all of which I had turned down because it just didnít feel right, their sales pitch seemed flawed. After talking with Jerry from Autoguide.com, I felt a genuine interest, care and appreciation for the direction DI.net took the current site and where we wanted it to go. This is to let you know that Autoguide.com will now be handling all things DI.net related, indefinitely.
The site will be upgraded to a new server (done yesterday) owned by Autoguide.com. So other than that, it will be site business as usual, just a new go to person instead of me. I will no longer be available to assist you guys.
Autoguide.com brings capital, staff and marketing to really take DI.net to the next level. This means more options and more opportunities for DI.net members, it means a bigger busier site for you guys!
Life is short, we have seen that first hand here on DI.net. It saddens me to leave, but I also feel that I can focus on my personal life and not be disappointing the staff at the same time now.
Thanks to you all for your support and help.
Philip will be chiming in, he is the admin / community manager that will be fielding many of your questions and concerns, including all things related to the DC.net changes that were supposed to take place.
