so.... where did the SPCR crew go? Did they get lost in Taipei at computex or what?

When was the last time its been this long in between reviews? "computex 2007: Cases" wasnt really a review. so May 29th since the last review on this site for the Nexus power supply.

So what happened? Is there some huge undertaking that requires 2 months to do? Or did you just run out of products to review?

It's summer man. There are plenty things that are WAY nicer to do this time of year then writing reviews. Not to mention that becouse of summer even hardware companies are taking it easy knowing that ppl rather spend money on vacation then on hardware this time of year.
And besides, crew deserves some vacation don't you think ;-)

I agree, but it would have been nice if the crew notified us that they were taking a summer break ;)


ps: I think there are some problems with the forum-section of SPCR

I'm guessing ecopcreview plus some special projects coming up are sucking up time.

There was a post or two somewhere around here by Mike that he was over in Thailand gathering info on parts or trade shows or something like that...

Ah! Here's one of them.

In Sweden ALL employes have right to 5 weeks of payed vacation. I think the rest of europe is like that too. So yes we do have summer breake here :-)

But, still somehow I'm desparately missing some new articles.
I hope everything is running fine, so no bad surprises like "we don't have time for this anymore" will come--

as important to the environment as eco pc may be, i really dont see why its a sticky on the top of the front page, and another eco pc article doesnt count as a hardware review in my book. so still no new articles?

I'd really like to see some more reviews of tower cases designed for Micro-ATX motherboards.

There are too many HTPC case reviews, not nearly enough Micro-ATX ones (imho).

I'd really see a thorough round-up/head-to-head featuring passive video card coolers like the Thermalright HR03 (Plus), the Zalman VNF100 and the Arctic Cooling Accelero S1/S2, preferably on a bunch of different modern video cards.

Second that, perhaps its even time to shift focus towards passive graphics card solutions rather than power supplies and chassis "all together". I for one, would find it most welcome.

Without dismissing or exclude reviewing hard drives and fans, naturally. Chassis and power supplies though, has (in my opinion) been close to covered, as it stands now.


cheers

There's some US companies that give 5 weeks too. For example I work for a bank and get 5 weeks paid vacation per year, increasing to 6 weeks after you have 10 years with the company. Still, 2 to 3 weeks is far more common, unfortunately. It's sad, since I think we'd honestly be more productive if we took more time off. You get burned out more easily the less time off you have.
