The forum has become more robotic and full of assholes.

 

Hahaha. You're right about that...

I definitely spend a lot less time now compared to before. Mainly because new forum doesent work on my phone where I used to browse forum the most.

My activity doesn't depend on the forum layout, it's currently slightly lower than usual but only because I have exams. It looks perfectly alive to be though.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

@Cat :^) can we have offtopic back where it used to be

That's not even remotely under my control. I'm just a developer - I don't actually manage any community stuff. 

 

As far as this forum being dead - it's definitely not. Speaking from experience, I have nothing but good things to say about our forum team. They've made some changes, but I have complete faith in their decisions. Even after release, I've been working tirelessly to improve our software and design. We're in it for the long haul, and we're going to slowly evolve from here.

I'm not actively posting a whole lot right now because I'm trying to fend off this sickness that won't go away and am also focusing on college stuff at the same time. When I'm free-er and able to think more clearly, I should be more actively posting again.

And everyone thinks they are a mod.

 

 

 

I imagine they must have this huge poster in their room, where it says on the very top Goal: LTT Mod and every time they report something. They immediately run to that poster, and draw a stick figure up a step, with happy tears streaming down their face.

People come and go, the forum has had its ups and downs, hackers have attacked, flame war epidemics have appeared and disappeared in the same blink of an eye, people have been talking doom about this forum since it was started. Still here though, and most of the long-term members are still here.


You have been visited by the Internet Fox Loli of Level1Techs. Fluffy, warm hugs will come to you, but only if you post " ,.-~*´¨¯¨`*·~-.¸-(?????? ???????)-,.-~*´¨¯¨`*·~-." in this thread.

I dont see your WYR on the recent page which means I participate less. I think they stopped off topic and the classifieds from showing there.


Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.

Is there any way around browsing the desktop forums on mobile?
