A page turns. :(

I was one of the very few that were still connected today just to share things but it is true there were much less people these last years.

It was a great tool to get any unofficial Queen in the 2000s. Downloading a flac show in 2004 at 3 ko/s during months from someone who was barely connected was a true labor of love. :D

Thanks for everything, Marco!

Thank you Bokkepoot for taking over the hub from me 14 years ago, and having continued it for an amazing 14 years. I knew the hub would be left in good hands with you back then, and it turned out to be so!

Thanks a million for your effort Bokkepoot. It was a great area for me to find very nice Queen related things. Especially when it was very difficult to find somethigs in Turkey. I've got many of excellent audio, video and other formats to collect Queen. I've lost the %50 interest of the band in last couple of years, just like you. But, it was a great chance to connecting some other Queen fans and make a good collection.

Thank you very much for all your efforts and best wishes to you.

I will miss the hub days...

Will you still be doing the Excel databases or are you taking a long break from Queen? :P



I hope you still be doing this, but you've done such a great work through all these years that you deserve a break :)

All the best!

Oh great times. The first time I got properly introduced to Queen bootlegs (and with a crappy internet connection, hehe). Must have been 13 years ago now.

Thanks for all your hard work and dedication!

Heel erg bedankt ;-)

I knew this moment would be arrived at some point.

Thank you very much for your effort. I used the HUB everyday until some point, and I was using it these days too, connecting when I have some spare time to download the stuff I was missing.

The Hub was the best resource to get precious stuff of my favourite band, so you did a great thing.

Nowdays DC++ is just for "old school" downloaders, the Torrents world ate DC++ a lot of years ago.

Best regards

Of course I am really grateful to Stefan as well! When he started the hub, a whole world of unofficial files was suddenly available to all fans. Great times!!!

Thanks a lot!!!

Cheers,

Thanks for your years of dedicated and persistent work.

I stopped using the hub about 10 years ago when my interest in Queen bootlegs started waning, and when I started computer gaming again (and needed all the computer memory I could scrounge from my old rig).

Thankless job most of the time but thank you for your esteemed contributions. I'm sure the band ought to appreciate it

yo hacia mucho tiempo que no entraba. Pero para mi fue descubrir una parte de Queen que no sabia que existia.

gracias

Thank you very much for all those GB of Queen music, it was great to be part of the Hub for a time and hear so much than otherwise could be almost impossible to collect.

Thank you remember that The Show Must Go On, because Life Is Real.

Saludos from México.
