According to his stats he was on 13 hours ago but hasn't posted for a week. Quite unusual for Aysiu. I hope everything is OK. Maybe he is just taking a well deserved break from posting.

Microsofts got him! They resorted to admin-napping!

Maybe he is associated with RAV TUX and John Titor......

He got tired of making people change their number of panels and left the forums. :)

If he was with me he would be very happy, enjoying my wifes homemade cheesecake. ;)

It looks like you'll make it.

Thanks for the 411.


He's gone......

It looks like it is true, the admins should have made a formal announcement:



I’m retiring from the forums for the near future (http://ubuntucat.wordpress.com/2007/06/08/im-retiring-from-the-forums-for-the-near-future/)

Posted by ubuntucat on June 8th, 2007
In March 2005, I had no idea that I would be a full-time Linux user. I had no idea I would be a regular member (God forbid a moderator) of a Linux forum. I had no idea part of my Psychocats website would be dedicated to Linux tutorials.
Now it’s June 2007, and I already feel (two years later) that it’s time to retire from the Ubuntu Forums. I’ve put in two short terms as a forum moderator. I’ve posted 25,000 posts. I’ve tried my best to help new users and to provide realistic (not exaggerated) advocacy and PR for Ubuntu.
I’ve encountered wonderful human beings—intelligent and giving human beings who live up to and beyond the Ubuntu motto of “Humanity toward others.” That community’s giving spirit and openness is inspiring. Nevertheless, it’s a chapter I’m closing right now.
I’ll still keep using Ubuntu. I’ll still upkeep Psychocats. I’ll keep blogging. But I’m on indefinite break from the forums.


I wish aysiu the best in what ever he does, I just wish he would have departed with a large straight, a full house or at least five of a kind. ;)

For one who has retired from the staff position and has taken a break from the forums and politics of Ubuntu I wish aysui all the best for his input to ubuntuforums.org and Ubuntu at large.

Awww! He's leaving? I mean he's left? :( I always loved his website. He had some great tips and guides like going back to pure Gnome or pure KDE. He was always very helpful. aysiu we will miss you. The best of luck to you with whatever your future holds.;)

Man I'll miss him.
I makes me think on the magic of this kind of things. You can "know" and "miss" someone you've never seen nor talked.

Thank you for all your time aysiu. Best regards!!

Trying not to sound sappy, but it's not going to be the same around here without Aysiu. All the best to him and his family.

I like his cat avatar. Not sure if that's just an admin default though, as mips has it too. Either way we can't deny that cats are neat.

At least he's still using Ubuntu and keeping up psychocats

aysiu told us the staff 1 week ago that he would be "Taking a break from the forums..."

I think its incredible that after just 7 days you guys have noticed his absence.

I'll try and push this thread to him :)

I think aysiu deserves some rest after everything that he did in these forums.

I just hope that he is really just taking a break.
