Could it be true, or do you want us to pull the other one?

It is nice to see a mix of topics in the General Tech Forum, there is proof that the RMA process does sometimes bring joy instead of pain to someone trying to keep their cool in the (soon to be) summer heat.  There are the usual suspects trying to track down the most cost effective upgrades as well as those who may have spotted a prebuilt PC that might be cheaper that a DIY machine.  The CPU forum on the other hand is currently very focused on a single topic ... when is Ivy Bridge coming out and should they wait until it does to even consider upgrading ... unless they're in China?

If you hit the Cases'n'Cooling Forum you can read one members long list of PSUs and how they generally rate against the competetion, see if you agree and if there are any other models you can add to the list.  In the storage Forum you can add your opinion to this thread that wonders if the VelociRaptor is still relevant in a solid state market.  On the other hand if you prefer gnomes to raptors then the Linux Forum is the place for you.

Podcast #198 is available and next week #199 will be appearing, but after that who knows?   Maybe if everyone clicks the ads long enough and truly believes we might live to #200  ... though you can count on our sick senses of humour surviving.

So does this mean I should unsubscribe to the podcast on Itunes and Youtube?

How about, if you don't put out #200, I'm gonna come down there to magical computer wizard land and tweak your ear and give you guys all purple nurples and move into your offices like Matthew McConaughey in You, Me, and Dupree until you get tired of me and finally cave and put out a #200? And a new HWLB, while I'm at it.

Also, I was going to post in the forums, once, but they seemed totally dead. It would be cool if there was an active PCPER discussion community. I knew we have [H] and other places, but it's not quite the same.

Also, I'm already a user of most of your sponsors, but I would gladly give you money for your podcasts. I'm serious. I would give you a few bucks. Or even toss like $15/yr into some annual subscription. Not as part of a "pay or you don't get the show" thing, but as a "support the show as a community, so everyone can benefit" thing.

Especially if Ryan and Patrick would agree to bless my next build, when it happens.
