Kids! Yes I like this forum.
First of all, remember all that good advice I've been giving you? All the times I fixed your tech issues?

Other than that people think it's cool because of:
comfort when someone passes away
comfort when a pet passes away
Store is down!!!
The new software broke my Mac
SX40 pix
car advice
medical advice
legal advice
steel cut oats (hate them)
hackintoshes
coffee brewers
just for proofing B+W ads
AAPL advice
Which Mac for mom advice
...

Don't forget Fantasy Sports, NCAA tourney and the upcoming Bowl series.

the RIP announcements (always nice to know someone else remembers some past personality)

and if you visit the dark side of the forum, the entertainment that is Swampy.

Airing of grievances (just in time for Festivus)



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I got my first eMac repaired. (bad ram on day 1 of the new purchase)

I got my fridge diagnosed...repaired.

I got my second Mac

Most people are nice around here. Many very smart people here. Many entertaining people here. I feel like I would probably have a drink with most people here.

Always a thread to make me laugh.. and cry.

Music discussions, decorating discussions, shoe discussions

I have never been banned here.

I resent that comment about Swampy. No place for that on this side of the aisle. If you meant it in a kindly manner indicate so....but she gets lots of flaming and slings and arrow "over there" and doesn't need them here.

It's the people and the community. We've become a little village that is geographically and culturally diverse, but share a common interest. And through sharing that interest, we've come to share bits of ourselves. It's really quite magical.

Not sure why you think it's amusing to reveal future plot developments.... I have to conclude that there's some degree of mental retardation at play here.

I always struggle a bit when I tell people about the forum. It sounds something like:

"Well, it's based around deals and tips that have to do with the Mac, but if you need help learning how to unclog a toilet, they can help with that too."

I simply refer to it as 'The Forum' to my wife and she just nods with acceptance.

I agree with Decocritter's sentiments. It would be great to chat and have a drink with many people. In my case I'd go for a coffee or Diet Coke. I think it would be interesting.
Personally, I get more out of the forum than I put in. Love anything Mac, but only know enough to be dangerous, as they say, so I learn more than I teach.
Great fun

There are are many thing one could list of elements that contribute to the lives of people here. The highlights for me are anytime we have helped others in tough times. That has happened several times and people have always stepped up. None of the other forums I read have this community feature.

Now that I have talked about the serious part, I would like to remind everyone that this same group told me to pee on myself after a hornet stung me in the foot. Very special forum indeed.

I originally joined the "dealmac" forum shortly after I purchased my 8500/120 PowerMac. Then moved over to this forum when the owners of dealmac didn't think the people made the forum what it is. Other than the spelling/grammar police I always had a great time and enjoyed getting advice / tips / deal tips on upgrading my 8500 to a NewerTech 250Mhz G3 then later a 300Mhz G3... Maxing out the memory... Cramming in a second drive (Seagate Hawk), U2W SCSI upgrades, etc... Then moved to a Dual 533 G4... Then to a Dual 1.8 G5... Then a MacBook Pro... Then a 27" iMac... I've always enjoyed the forum and how personable everyone is towards me. Even when I left a few times (never really left but ended up spending tons of my time on a few car forums, camera forums and classic arcade forums) and this place always feels like home. If it's asking / sharing deals, help troubleshooting my computer problems, kid advice, work advice, software advice, etc. this place is always more than willing to give advice!

Yes it is the people.. I don't post often but have been around since the Dealmac forum days and read the forum daily. I know that I can always come here and ask a question about most anything and no one will ever make me feel small...Yes, .it's the good people, especially those who help us get a head start on the new season of "Downton Abbey" winking smiley

the first time i saw the forum on dealmac i was not a tech person, i was in a university bldg and the IT guy told me if i was going into computers (to do artsy stuff) i would probably want a new one every 3 yrs and i would be fine if i used this forum. i wasn't 20, so i was used to refrigerators and cars that last 15-20 yrs and as such it sounded insane (esp since computers are no small investment). also i couldn't see a bunch of lines of text as exciting. he told me be careful of reading the forum it's addicting... i was thinking, yeah, right.. now its ten years later (damn where did the time go?) and i think yeah.. right!!

i went from no computer in my house to a g5, then add a mb, and then add a new mbp. not to mention the ipad and gaggle of ipods. [like richorlins new animation] it's like we all have our minions here to help us with our (eeeevil) plans.

without [the dealmac and now] this forum, well i would still be stuck with no computer or one with a seemingly unresolvable issue i'm sure. from my first (g5) i never worried because i had "backup" and i was able to try and learn a lot of things on the macs without worrying i'd break it or be lost.

in my house we used to call the forum "dealmac" but when it changed my (then fiancee) reverently called it "your guys" in like a cute way.

so even now if i ever have anything interesting to say she says "where'd u hear that? your guys?" ...yeah
