Calling it a day...

Ignoring the most recent kgwhd pack (which I know I haven't released yet, but trust me it is on the way) I think I'm going to hang up my hat.

I just have too much I'd rather do.

I'm not leaving EAB and I'll always stick around, and to be honest I'll still install all the whdload games myself (because I'm a bit of a perfectionist) and may slap them up on the website every now and then, but I am not going to make any "releases".

Life is brilliant, and you fill it with what you want to do. For me that is certainly true. I love games, I've always enjoyed playing Amiga games and WHDLoad has made it that much easier.

So thanks to everyone involved in whdload, especially those lazy bastards who couldn't be arsed to install the games themselves.

PS: Massive thanks to DeCreator wherever you are for starting this all off.

Thank you for your efforts KG, another appreciative person here (lazy bastard who couldn't be arsed to install the games himself).



I wonder if another will step up.

Happy new year

KG - you are a legend in Amigaland.

Glad to hear that you are not leaving the scene completely!
Thanks for all your hard work over the years - especially the Super Skidmarks installs!!

Thanks for all the work you have done KG, all these games and the WHDLoad program that they are meant for, has given the Amiga even more life than it had when it was still being produced. With all the various Amiga emulators, new hardware and storage options, the Amiga is still going to be around for a while yet, your uploads have played a very big part of its popularity for the likes of myself and I am truly pleased that I found out about your game packs

Its good to know that you are still going to be around and I hope you enjoy a bit of a change to your lifestyle. life's too short to not take advantage of a change now and then

Well you've had a good innings and gave us a lot to chew on over the years, we can't complain! Give yourself a big pat on the back and bow out with your head held high!

Thanks for taking up the project after DeCreator, who also had a huge impact on these really useful packs so thanks to him too.

Big thanks to the WHDLoad team as well - where would we be without such an awesome utility.

Thanks to you i have discovered many amiga games I didnt know about from the old days. Sometimes I would go hmm lets have a look in C folder, find a game and play it. Or have a look on HOL, filter for whdload game, find a game, go to amiga, open it and play. No hassle searching for an ADF and the installer and al the hassle that goes with it.

Killergorilla obituary

Mr. Killergorilla died last night. He was tired out from installing thousands of WHDLoad games and fell accidently out of his window. Obviously he landed in a convertible with 3 nuns, which were totally shocked. The female driver braked instantly, so Mr. Killgorilla was catapulted into a group of very fat women at their aerobics lesson outdoors. One of them slipped, fell on this poor guy and crushed him to death. Some eyewitnesses said it was disgusting, others said it was hilarious.


@KG

Many thanks for your preinstalled WHDLoad games all over the years.

P.S.: This doesn't help you to quit the work on KGLoad.

Do what you like doing KG, thanks for all the packs they were very useful and saved a lot of time.

I do wonder however if you will finish your unfinished projects before I finish mine... part of the new year's resolutions hey.

See you on irc now and then
