    Staff writer/reviewer/columnist and general all round good guy Panagiotis "Kombatant" Vagiakos (try saying that after a few guinness) is leaving Driver Heaven for the distant shores of AMD.

    I have known Pete for years and he is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet and I'd like to wish him the very best in the future within his new job at AMD.

    We are cracking open some budweiser and vodka tonight, so if you want to join us, please take the time to wish Pete all the best in this thread and we can all get drunk, virtually...

    We are also holding a competition, the first person to correctly pronounce his name after a bottle of Smirnoff gets a free X1950XTX from Pete when he moves to AMD next week, he doesn't know about this yet so lets keep it quiet for a while :lol:

    Many Congrats and i hope you make the most of you're new position.

    How do you pronounce the name without copy & paste and a dislike of Smirnoff coming into play. :D (A touch of sarcasm added.)
