    Hi,

    Due to personal reasons I have to go.
    Personal reasons:
    - personal reasons;
    - a PC that I can't fix anymore, and I can't afford a new one.

    I was here from (almost) day one; being part of the first mod-team.
    Dear Paul, thanks for asking at that time !!!

    Lots of things happened in all those years; lots of changes took place.

    Being friends and helping each other was always the main goal.

    I've tried to help; I failed many times.

    I know that I have hurt many of you.
    The only thing I can do, is: please accept my most sincere apologies for having done so.

    I feel very depressed.
    Depressed for lots of reasons.

    There will be no FanJ anymore.
    Well, FanJ stood for:
    - Jan being a Fan of the Wilders board.
    - "phonetic" it could be understood in some way in Dutch as "van Jan", which means "from Jan".

    It hurts....

    Maybe I'll be able to read from friends PC's.

    Whether I'll return in some way on the Net, I don't know

    What will happen to me, I really don't know


    Please, to all of you:
    Please take care of each other and yourself.
    Please be as much friends as possible.


    Thanks to all of you !!!!!


    Most warmest regards from a sad and depressed,
    Jan

    I know you can get past this Jan, and I also hope that someone will give you another PC, so we can see you around more often than not.

    Cheers

    Craig.

    Hee Jan,

    I feel really sad to read your posting being you one of the nicest persons I met here at Wilders.
    I do hope we will seeing you back here. I wish you all the best with whatever you are planning.

    Kop op Jan, probeer het zonnetje te zien wat altijd achter de wolken schijnt.
    Ik wens je veel wijsheid en sterkte in de nabije toekomst. Ik voel me bedroefd.
    Sterkte,


    Gerard

    Gerard already said it all.
    I can't help to suspect your PC problems are the least of your burdens now, am I right? That hurts me too, Jan. I've been there too and believe me, even if you can't (or don't want to?) see the light right now, please have faith and work on getting those clouds out of the way.
    You're such a great spirit (online).
    Wishing you all the best, keep your chin up!
    Hope to see you around again :)

    Kop op, Jan!

    Groetjes,

    :'( When I started here, I told that I was blunt an rather to the point. Damn this makes the Wildman sad. This is one of the icons here at Wilders, an I hope that this situation is a short temporary one. I can very well identify with this, remember the Wildman was almost in the same situation.

    I along with others I am sure wish you the best, an hope that some how we can hear from you again very soon.

    Thanks
    Wildman
    :'( :( :oops:

    When I first started coming to Wilders, I saw this "FanJ" helping out all over the place.

    Jan has helped me with some programs, general information, and just plain being an 'internet friend', over the past years. ;)

    Jan, mate, I sincerely wish you can come back from that seeminly dark abyss you feel you are stumbling into, and I hope you realise that there are many, many friends out over ethernet that are rooting for you to prevail.

    Nothing can convince me you intentionally "hurt" anybody, even though you may feel that, for I know your integrity would only allow the best intentions towards anyone else.

    Failure is only a word that one bestows upon oneself, for they may think they failed, but YOU my friend are NO failure. Everything you have done has been of the utmost sincerity towards helping people here at Wilders, and if some 'advice' you may have given did not work for a particular problem, is only means just that, it did not work. NOT FAILURE, just simply in that case the 'solution' did not work for that particular instance. I do hope you can see the difference mate. :D

    Life is by no means a guarantee for happiness, you are constantly evolving in every way during life, your being, your outlook and your attitude towards others reflect the true person.

    YOU, my friend, have all the values we Aussies term to be "True Blue" [a true friend, which nothing can persuade me to believe different].

    Jan, THANKS for everything you have personally advised/shown/told me over the past few years.

    Cheers to my Dutch colleague. :D

    Sincerely TAS

    Best Wishes and take care of yourself ... we'll leave the light on for you. ;)

    Hi Jan,

    Truly sorry to hear this. Hopefully this is only a "temporary" setback and you'll be back in the fold before too long. If not, then I sincerely wish you all the best....and I also want to thank you for the times that you have provided me with help in these forums....

    Good luck

    Jan i'm very sorry to hear of this ... :doubt:
    Keep holding your head up high mate, you've shown over the years that you're a trooper so we both know you'll get through this! Any forum that loses a person as helpful and friendly as you is worse for it, but I've no doubt that we'll see you back, smilies and all in the near future when you sort out whatever you need to sort out.

    So I hope that you manage to get things back on track soon, but if you have to go then I've no doubt we'll cross each others paths again in the near future :)

    Take care my friend,
    Wayne

    Hi Jan

    You know, getting the answer right was never the most important thing in the world....otherwise we'd all be in trouble.

    Help has always been appreciated...unless it blew up my computer...come to think of it...I managed to blow up my computer all by myself this week, and I didn't need help from anyone to achieve it (this is a new comp I'm writing from you know) !

    That said, I've seen a lot of friendly, good natured helpful posts from you...you did mention some other sorts of posts...somehow I must have missed them

    Take care, and be well :)

    Hi Jan,

    I haven't had the opportunity to know you from the beginning, but had the chance to know you a little better through our PM's and posts.
    Your help has always been appreciated and of course we can't know everything, so we do make mistakes from time to time. :doubt:

    I'm sorry to hear you leave this place and I do hope you'll get a new PC.
    Personal reasons come first place, so I really understand that very well.

    Take good care of yourself & your family Jan, and don't feel too depressed.
    If you need us, we'll be here whenever you want to drop by to say hello.

    Thanks for the time we had together.

    My warmest regards,

    Eric ;)

    It is very unfortunate that "you have to go"...

    Since I've been a Wilders member, I have come to know a helpful, dedicated and truely good-natured FanJ, always trying to help others. Including myself, even if it was not possible to configure NOD32 to work with ADINF.LST.

    I also have already travelled that path of depression that you mention you are on nowadays. It is not an esay one, However, it may be be one of internal self development and spiritual growing.

    Just remember that the important thing is not how many times you fell flat, but the times you managed to stand up again, trying to cope with the hazards life brings to us all.

    And if that post from you is a farewell message, then let me tell you there is no such thing for us, as you will certainly be in the hearts of Wilders members!...

    Warmest regards

    Rui

    FanJ,

    I too am extremely sorry to hear this. Hopefully this is only temporary. I will miss you so much. :(

    Do keep God in your heart - he does wonders. Rest assured, he will help you. In time, you will be back - and I'll be waiting.

    :'( FanJ, I do hope only the best for you! If there is anything I can do to help. I can put together another computer for you, with ethernet card or modem. I've got enough parts here to get you set up again. Let someone know where to send it.
    If it truly is your health, then I'm sure our prayers are with you!
    ;) I for one am willing to help in anyway.

    Dear FanJ,

    I've read a few of your posts...and your warmth has shown through, one can almost feel it.
    What a person you must be.

    I am sending you thoughts of the best one can wish for.
    But most of all, thoughts that'll replace sadness with
    gladness soon once again !

    Primrose's picture shows it all.
    IT IS US...holding YOUR hands !!
    Can you feel it ?
