K20D has three sensors (including the sense of smell!)... are we there yet?

dear mr. moderator, could you lock this section until there's some real news? and yes, i've been responsible for some long winded threads, so the irony isn't lost on me

Amen, the server was so slow today it was unusable for a while. What's this site hosted on an old 386 in some guys basement?

I would bet it's more bandwidth-related than server hardware-related. Sure, some large sites need the latest and greatest servers to run their forums (anandtech, for example), but we're not quite that big. regardless, it has been kinda funny to see the number of people visiting just the rumor forum alone jump from the mid 80s when I joined to 263 today, which was the peak when I saw it.

Funny, as a moderator is a contributor. I try to avoid "teasers". People falling all over themselves based on who-knows-who says what. Seems like tabloid TV.

Well, I guess now we know! Pretty cool that just before the site gets hammered on the 24th, it's upgraded to a quad-core! I suppose I should donate now (I kept debating, wondering if it would actually get upgraded). Guess I should put up or shut up...

There are 300 people currently viewing the Rumours section alone, and the forums are working fine and dandy.
