Sad to hear that 3 US firefighters died while fighting bush fires in Australia today. The 3 US firefighters were crew on a C-130 Hercules waterbomber which crashed.
Unfortunately they are not the only firefighters to have died while fighting these fires in Australia this season, but it has even more impact when those who lost their lives aren't from Australia who had no obligation to help but are putting their lives on the line to assist us in our time of need.
Thank you to America, Canada, New Zealand, Japan, and all other countries who have provided firefighters and equipment to help Australia.
A couple minutes ago, i was just staring at the viewcount on the psu tier list and just thinking... how the hell... even if Lienuslatetips, STRMfrmXMN and Aniallation (with all the people connected to it, but these being the "main" editors) laid a great foundation and reputation to start off, it just seems incredible how succesful it is. in almost 3 months I have
2.3x the view count to 1.0
0.3x the view count of 2.0
2.0x the view count of 2.1
0.8x the view count of 3.0
It's been featured in 2 LTT videos, 1 livestream, pinned in the PCMR discord, daily used in big groups like LTT Official, BAPC, PCMR, this forum (i get notifications of the latter every day, sometimes just secretly taking a look) and many others. people start to recognise me, compliment, ask questions and I've even had a company give me a PSU to try out (the Seasonic Focus GX-650 I'm currently using). even some who disliked earlier lists for various reasons now are more than happy to use it, which i mainly saw when first joining BAPC.
I want to thank everyone. The writers: Luna, Stefan, Dattestbench, Aden and PSUGuru, all the people that went on to answer people's questions while I was asleep, the moderators to watch over it, the many people that gave some wonderful feedback, leading me to add links, sources, more psus and of course many more are welcome for the future. But of course, last but not least, all the 304.607 (at the time of writing) viewers that came on and gave it a watch.
It's been bringing some stress for me, especially in the early stages, but with the positive feedback and the help from some amazing friends I keep getting, it feels like I did it for something.
Please don't see this as a brag, a flex, a lecture or just a cliche speech, because that's totally not how i mean it. I just wanted to take my moment, and thank everyone.
