    As some of you might know, my son is recovering from Leukemia, and the responsibilities this puts on me change over time. My role at Intel (traveling and relocation) did not gel with my responsibilities at home so I decided to focus on my family and stay closer to home. As a result I’m no longer with the company.

    Oh, lord. Had no idea. It gets overused, but thoughts and prayers to your son sir. Can't imagine what that is like for you. If you need anything, ya'll need anything, you have us, your [H]ard family here also to help. I wish him a full recovery.

    I hope your son gets well soon as family should always be the priority...as far as the Intel position, it never seemed right to me from the beginning...it seemed like a total brand ambassador position and financial issues aside it never made sense why you would sell off OCP etc for that kind of role...if it was an engineering, R&D or development role I could understand...maybe OCP will make a return one day soon...

    It is a relief to hear you won't be slowly molded into a shill, however!

    Man, I gotta admit, everytime I had a chance to talk to you, you have been cordial and wonderful. Knowing all you had on your plate, and you still had the time to be a gentleman when replying really tells me how cool of cat you are. I hope the best for you and your family. Selfishly I hope H comes back because it's one of my favorite websites ever.

    A lot of people throw around the 'Family First' mantra without understanding what it means. This is the true definition of 'Family First'. Good luck.

    Damn Kyle, didn't know.

    It's tough enough when we as adults have cancer, can't even begin to imagine what you as a parent are going through having a child with it.

    Kids are strong (stronger than us) and he will come out of this like the hero that he is.

    I used to joke (to myself) that you would not last very long at Intel...one or both parties wouldn't put up with each other's crap. This is nowhere near why i thought you would have to leave.

    Godspeed to your boy and to all of you.

    I'm not even going to pretend to understand what you and your family are going through, Kyle, regardless of how much I empathize and sympathize, and thus I wish all of you the best, from our family to yours.

    Sorry about the job, but yeah, family comes first!

    And maybe rebooting HardOCP comes second? Still haven't found a replacement yet...

    Sorry to hear about your son and it's understandable. It's unfortunate having to give up a great opportunity like that but family comes first, I've had to make similar tough decisions like that in the past.

    I had no idea.

    I've seen my parents go through tough medical issues with one of my siblings. My heart goes out to you and your son. Best wishes, man... both of you can stay strong.

    Work can wait. Intel, [H], whoever. Take care of your own 1st.

    I see. I hope you do as i honestly feel lost right now. But i do wish the best for you in any situation so if its not for the best i get it. I was hoping there would be some serious changes come from the Intel side after a year or so of you being there. Sucks it didnt work out but you gotta do what you gotta do.

    Hope the best for you man!

    Had no idea your family was dealing with this. Hopefully your son has a full recovery, and respect to you for having the right priorities.
