This kinda goes back to something we talked about in months past, that NV News has been a bit more of a hangout than a hardware site in some ways.

For what it's worth, Mike has not had much time for some NV News things, and I have stepped in to help keep things rolling. We appreciate any suggestions, as what really keeps this place afloat is the good people (and the seething pit called the P&R forum
This is a great community with a great history, and great connections. Here's to a prosperous future.
