    I like Bittech because of the builds mostly, im hoping to see some great new projects now the Haswell is upon us.

    Hopefully something by me also, so i can join in the fun, £££ permitting.

    is it down to us I mean sure the forums still seem populated but what about the site, it just doesn't seem to be what it used to be no pod casts any more and the last buyer's guide is seriously out of date.

    Has anyone saying the site is dead actually visited the front page recently? I know the writers have changed compared to 2008, but we're still covering all the major hardware launches. In the last two weeks alone we've done two CPU launches and a GPU launch, including three CPU reviews, two GPU reviews, a ton of computex news and lots more besides. We're a small team these days but as most websites go that's a lot of content!

    You're away from BT for half a day and look what happens. By the number of posts in this thread today the forum is alive and well.

    As for keyboard fapping...it's not my thing, but what ever floats your boat. It will be the first place I visit to ask advice when I'm buying a new keyboard.

    I don't think it's a reflection on the efforts of the staff - I'm pretty damn sure you're working your tails off.

    I don't imagine you can answer freely, but isn't it fair to say that changes to the way it is staffed and funded have impeded your efforts somewhat?

    This crap isn't helping either...

    To staff, this pretty much sums up my feelings.

    Meanmotion; even with the server upgrade, look at the time on that. Right about when the evening rush comes in. Don't care how good the upgrade is, unless you're google, 40k or more people checking up at once is sure to overwhelm the server.

    True but we can't all be expected to know what is going on in everyone elses life.

    Jesus couldn't be expected to know they were all sinners. But it was a safe assumption. :D
