Got problems with your girlfriend because she can't take
your constant Quake playing? Are you finding yourself just
a little too attracted to the game models? Then talk
to Mynx and she'll sort it all out for you!
All good things must come to an end.
To my dear friends and readers,
Thank you for your years of loyalty and contribution. For nearly four and a half years, Dear Mynx has been a weekly staple at Planet Quake. Gamespy and Dear Mynx have enjoyed a long, comfortable, mutually beneficial relationship, but now the time has come for us to part company. I don't think anyone expected Dear Mynx to have the run it had - and what a run it has been.
There are some key people to whom I owe my deepest thanks:
Mental4, my loyal and understanding husband. He's the one who took care of the rugrats every time I wrote a column. He laughed at my stupid column jokes and he encouraged me like nobody else could.
Blue, of Blue's News. His short stay as Planet Quake's site director produced the Dear Mynx column. Without his willingness to take a chance with me, Dear Mynx would have never existed.
To Mark Surfas, who also took a chance. Mark took a good bit of heat because of my column, but he stood behind me all the way.
Lowtax, who is nothing short of a visionary, and was really damn fun to work with.
Hellchick, my sistafriend at PQ. She fought on my behalf more than once, and I will never forget that. She's also a killer babe, smart as a whip and dern fun.
Steve Gibson, back when he was still "sCaryname", linked Dear Mynx from Shacknews time and again when I was first getting started. Thanks for drumming up readers.
Redwood, for his constant and tireless weekly link. Devotion!
To Paul Steed, my friend, my first ever guest host, creator of Mynx: the Q3A bot. Thanks for the inspiration.
To you, gentle reader. You provided me with hair-raising questions spanning the incredible to the amazing. I never in my life thought I would find myself seriously pondering perils of the penis - well, beyond for that of my own amusement. Every day I looked forward to the avalanche of Dear Mynx mail, sometimes I just couldn't wait to write my column, because of the incredible material you provided. Your willingness to share your most embarrassing moments, your deepest troubles, your vexing questions - you made this column. Thank you.
I can't say I know what will happen now. I do know that it is time for Dear Mynx to leave Planet Quake. I am deeply grateful to PQ for the past 4.5 years; that is a long relationship by any standard, especially by net standards, and I do feel that it is time to move on. You can find me on the web at mynx.com, and you may reach me by e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org.
