    It is with a heavy heart, but the warmest regards that I'd like to announce the retirement of our longest-standing forum administrator, iWhat.

    iWhat has served the Mac-Forums community well, both as a moderator and later, an admin. In that time, he has helped guide the continued evolution of the forum, despite a heavy academic load. In particular, iWhat has invested his time in promoting Mac-Forums in the social media space, keeping our Facebook and Twitter presence fresh, as well as maintaining our news bot, 'OneMoreThing'.

    On a personal note, I will greatly miss iWhat's unique wit and sense of humor in curating the forums. I am particularly grateful for his wisdom and guidance in keeping the forum running on an even keel when we lost our community leader, Schweb back in August of 2011.

    I know I speak for all of us when I wish him all the best in his future endeavors. Though he will not be able to commit the kind of time he once did, he has already said that he hopes to be able to return from time to time to join in community events and discussions.

    Please join me in wishing him well.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Thanks for all the hard work. I think its safe to say you've played a big part in building a community we can be proud of.

    Agreed. Although I wasn't privy to the building process as Mac-Forums grew, I've certainly reaped the benefits of his (and others) hard work.

    As cwa107 said, best of luck with everything life throws at you and makes possible.

    I wish him well. I remember his personal mail to me some years ago when he invited me to become a moderator of this great forum. I know he's busy with other things and am looking forward to his visiting us once in awhile.

    Best wishes in the challenges ahead iWhat. Stay in touch.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    I will always consider iWhat a good friend. When I first joined Mac Forums him and Schweb both made me feel so welcome, that was the main reason I stuck around the forums and made it my Internet home.

    If you see this Justin, thank you and good luck in the future. I know you will do well in whatever you do. I will miss you here greatly as I do Bryan.

    Take care my friend.

    Never judge a man, untill you have walked a mile in his shoes...
    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.

    There were times Justin in IRC chat and on the forums made laugh so hard I almost died. He really has a sense of humor which I will greatly miss here.
