    you will be missed. I can attest to the fact that when answering forum posts takes over your life its time to break clean away. good luck in the future.

    Wow. Just wow.

    Hate to see you go Earl. But while this is a part of my life, I'm sure it was dominating yours.

    Good luck to you and yours.

    Good man, to be able to realize the world is not all about the internet and television, that there are many things much more important in the long run. Good luck in your endeavors.

    After my near fatal car accident in Jul 06...I couldn't really move from my recliner for nearly 2 months. It was during this time that I discovered you and this forum. I had been a customer of directv for 10+ years at that point but never really got "into it" until this time. Couple a weeks later I had my hr20-700 and never looked back!

    Between the painkillers and the laptop being attached to me, it was You and your influence on this board that (at least partly) pulled me through. I think I used to refresh a 100 times a day.

    So I say good luck and THANK YOU for all you have done!!

    Wow, just wow man. I never thought I'd see the day where DBSTalk didn't have Earll!! When I first got my HR10-250 I never posted (at least that I remember) over at Tivocommunity, but already then there was this guy over there who struck me as someone who knew what he was talking about. Then I saw him here too when I started checking this place out about my first R15. The DirecTV/DBSTalk world is losing a good dude.

    If by some chance you are staying in the Chicago area in your new life I know you flatlanders like to vacation up here, so if you get up this way some day be sure to get in touch with me and I'll be here to pour you one or ten....

    Earl - it was a real pleasure to meet you at CES this year, and I really enjoyed the conversations we had.

    You have been a pilliar in the online community, for the satellite service provider and customers alike, and you will be missed.

    Congratulations on many great years and much success in your next endeavor.

    I've only been here a relatively short time, but the information and advice you have supplied over that time has been greatly appreciated. You have provided opportunities to users here that might otherwise have never happened. I, myself, and I am sure everyone else here is extremely grateful for that.

    Good luck in your future endeavors. I have also taken the route of a complete career change from computer programmer to my current career and found that it has definitely fulfilled me. I only hope yours does the same for you.
