Oh no, sad times. Good luck to all who move on due to this

I know there will be some changes to CPC soon and this is making me concerned to what they're going to be.

This is sad..very sad. Why on earth do they think they're going to make more money by getting rid of the great writers on this site? Ridiculous! Not that the effects haven't been apparent for quite a while though, things have really slowed down.. Q_Q

Well, Simon, you do have some boots to fill. I'll withhold judgement about this being a good or bad turn of events until you have proven yourself. Best of luck.

Well, that's probably a nail in the coffin for the podcasts, also.

They went quiet after Paul moved to advertising anyhow.

Utter toilet.
Dennis, you disappoint me. Where is the business sense in getting rid of the people who made you what you are today?
There was no need to do this that I could see.

Incidently, whats happening with custompc?

What a shame!
I could see this happening a while ago.

I feel that bit-tech will lose quite a few readers because of this news.

Sad news, but I suppose it's a pretty busy corner of the market to operate in. I'll always remember the team as they were at the Asus OC event I went to, was an awesome experience and really made the point that there was no better community to belong to in the UK than Bit-Tech/CPC. I really hope that the site can live on in a positive way, not letting standards slip, and not letting content drift towards mainstream when it's the niche products that really set Bit-Tech apart.

It seems like the beginning of the end which is really sad...

HOWEVER

The new team might be ace (although i'm not filled with hope that Dennis are solely using freelance writers, where will the chemistry and consistency be?) we'll wait and see...

Oh dear - sounds like you're going to be outsourcing your quality journalism - hope its not to some god-forsaken "low cost center" in asia, like the professional IT industry is constantly doing. The quality of this site it exceptional, James is THE MAN. I'm really sorry to hear this; I've loved your magazine & site for too long now. Oh well... Best of luck to all of you for your amazing hard work and conscientiousness. I'm not going to say "I hope the site doesnt die" because it probably will just hope Custom PC magazine doesnt.
