Please don't leave the forum just because you don't post the ads. Your sense of humor was priceless and I'm sure we also want to hear about your job search progress.

Stay strong my man and God Speed!
Thank You.

I'll be here.... just maybe not as chatty.....for as long as I can

Very sorry to hear about that Speedy. I always looked forward to your threads, and I speak for everyone when I say thank you for all the hard work.
If your hard work and dedication is like it is when you take the time to make these threads, which I'm sure it is, anyone would be foolish not to hire you. Best of luck to you in the future.

Speedy, I am so sorry, my friend. I know my being sorry doesn't help you any, but, I truly do not like to hear when a person loses their job, much less someone I consider to be a friend.

Regardless of whether you post ads, or not, please stay around and chime in. I pray that this job loss will only be temporary and you'll be back working, very soon.

Keep in touch, no matter what happens. If you are feeling down, and need a friend to tell your troubles to, I am here. You can always send me a message or E-mail me. I will be happy to be a shoulder to lean on.

Take care my friend, and I'll see you around!

Aww crap. Speedy, your threads were what drew me into the DVDTalk forums and actually got me registered here. I wish you the very best of luck and hope you will find great success in your future endeavors. I also hope to one day see you back here "doing the undoable" again.

As a great man before me said it best: "So long, and thanks for all the fish."

Sorry to hear it, Speedy. I've been laid off, too - I get to spend my birthday filling out unemployment claims.

Thanks for all of you hard work, good luck in the future, and I'll see you on the breadlines!

Ditto. Sorry to see you go Speedy.
You are the main reason why I frequent this thread.
Now I'll have to wait until Sunday to see the DVD sales from Best Buy.

Re: Best Buy Prices: February 1 - February 7, 2009 FAREWELL EDITION

the irony of this floors me...Speedy losing a job after saving us tons of money over the years, with his dedicated service to these boards.

Speedy, if there is such a thing as karma, you will wind up with a better job, for more money, very, very soon. Best of luck, you deserve it.

Sad news, Speedy. I'm confident you'll come out on top. Keep your chin up in the meantime.

Re: Best Buy Prices: February 1 - February 7, 2009 FAREWELL EDITION

Wow, January 26 truly was a Blue Monday because of all the layoffs I heard about around the country. Ironic that one of them was you, Speedy, who helped so much to keep Black Friday alive year 'round for us.

Your good work certainly impressed everyone here and it seems likely you will land on your feet soon enough. But in the meantime, don't let the time off stress you - I hope you get to catch up with some DVDs

Damn that really sucks Speedy. I'm sorry but I also wish you the best. That damn H. W. Bush really needs to be held responsible for all this mess somehow!

It is with the utmost regret that I must announce my immediate retirement from these very threads which gave me such a creative response that I endeavored to help as many as I could while the informational springs ran full. // As of today, I am among many Americans as I now find myself: UNEMPLOYED
That sucks... good luck. Thanks for all the info/help w/ these posts.
