While browsing the stratics forums I came upon a disturbing post by Calandryll:
From the following post at the stratics board (http://boards.stratics.com/php-bin/uxo/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=avatarcorner&Number=43507&page=0&view=col%20lapsed&sb=5&o=0&what2=postlist&fpart=)
Over the past five years Ive written countless posts, but this one is by far the most difficult as it will be my last as a developer for UXO.
Today was my last day at Origin Systems. Its been a great ride filled with wonderful memories and unforgettable experiences, but all good things must come to an end. While the decision to close OSI certainly pains me, my reasons for deciding to stay in Austin are mostly of the personal kind and I leave happy to know that UXO's development will continue.
I know for the most part that I have written the majority of developer posts here, but I want you all to know that there is a great team of designers, programmers, artists, world builders, marketing professionals, and executives behind UXO. Without their tireless work I literally wouldnt have anything to post about. Ive had the privilege to work alongside some of the most talented people in the industry and I hope wherever my travels take me next I get the chance to work with them again someday.
I dont really have much else to say, other than Im sorry, and to say thank you. Thank you for all of your support over the years, both towards UO and UXO. Thank you for letting us into your lives and for believing in us. Thank you for taking the time to read our posts, designer diaries, and interviews. And most importantly, thank you for your participation on the boards, e-mails, and IRC chats helping us create and improve these games. I also want to say thank you to the website operators and moderators for all of their wonderful support for UXO. I consider myself truly blessed to have had the opportunity to share UXOs development with all of you.
I look forward to the time when I can share whatever I work on next. Until then, take care and thank you again.
