Well I'll be damned that's probably the nicest comment I've ever received while I've been working here My pleasure sir!

I can also reiterate Ed's calibre as someone who is more than capable of giving bit-tech what it needs. On top of his experience he's also a thoroughly nice chap who I'm looking forward to working with. Also, thanks to Simon for his hard work over the last year and bit.

We don't. Every day we have to manually trawl through about 2000 new registrations and try and pick out the real ones. Real people get inevitably rejected/deleted by mistake. This has been going on for the best part of a year.

So yeah, if you could do something about that you'd have our eternal gratitude.

Well it's been something of a bumpy ride over the last year or so - and to be fair most of those bumps have primarily involved advertising woes, which are ultimately out of Simon's hands - but I can see that things are definitely changing for the better. Good luck in the future Simon, and thanks for all your work.

I'll agree that Ed's "pedigree" (for want of a better term...I'm not trying to compare anyone to a dog! ) does seem an excellent fit for bit-tech, and I can certainly see the value in wanting to branch out and expand the audience. The only reservation I would have - and I'm sure that anyone running a site that's seen any measure of success is already well aware of this - is that there's always the risk of diluting your core content and alienating long-standing readers/members/whatever-us-old-timers-are-called. Though to be honest, many people will cry foul and storm off in a huff at the slightest hint of change anyway; I'm not criticising anyone specifically here, but I worked in Change Management in a large enterprise for a long time and once you understand the behavioural patterns it's hard to avoid seeing them everywhere.

IMO there's no point trying to compete with sites like AnandTech and producing massively in-depth analyses and articles; you'll lose that battle before you even start fighting it, and you'll expend a lot of time and effort while doing it. Stick to what you do well and keep trying to do it better; I read bit-tech because of the quality of the writing (aside from the odd spelling/grammar error here and there - I'm looking at you, Gareth! ), not because they produce 15-page reviews of a USB card.
