Question Where's the kissy-face for nVnews?

Ok, it seems nVidia is actually realizing they have a problem and is now trying to do something to try and stop looking like the meanest/nastiest/evilest group of suits who ever ran a viddy card company....so what's in it for nVnews?

Have they contacted you folks yet to do an interview or anything? I am STILL freaking this morning after reading on DriverHeaven that nVidia contacted Zardon to tell him that they WILL be allowing Omegadrive to start putting out nVidia drivers again and that they're going to be doing a big interview with DH about the recent "troubles" (Omegadrive news, nVidia interview...free membership required, sorry.)

So what have they been doing for the gang around here?

(BTW-No, they haven't sent me a card...not yet... )

Hmmm....suddenly my enthusiasm that a new card is coming feels diminished by a factor of 10,000....

Digi, if there is a problem (hardware or software wise) nVnews acknowledges it, hoping NVIDIA will do something about it. That's the best way of doing it, isn't it ?

The folks over at DH need to get their collective heads out of their asses and turn that crap off.

I'm sorry, but your forums are not the New York Times.

No argument! And at the risk of sounding fanboish I think you folks have done a hella great job of it too and have held yourselves well and honorably thru a DAMNED difficult period!

I just feel that nVidia should be contacting nVnews too and trying to make things right with you guys, I know they gave you grief!

ROFLMFAO~~~~~

Y'know, even when I worked there I was against the necessity of registration to read the forums and I still am....but they don't "have their collective heads" up their asses over there about it, they know it annoys a lot of people but feel it is required to keep the bandwidth costs down. (When DH started out it became a lot more popular a lot faster than anyone anticipated, and the way the costs kept jumping was astronomical! )
