SPCR is 12

About Us

Twelve is a number imbued with rich meaning throughout history and mythology, in a myriad of cultures. Twelve apostles in Christianity, twelve Olympians in ancient Greek mythology, twelve Jyotirlingas in Hindu Shaivism. In time: Twelve months, twelve hours in a clock dial, twelve signs in both Chinese and Western zodiacs. In movieland: Twelve Monkeys, 12 Angry Men, The Dirty Dozen and Ocean's Twelve. Twelve Knights at King Arthur's round table, 12 inches in a foot, a dozen eggs. And SPCR is 12 years old today.

Where in the world is SPCR?

About Us
Silent PC Review's editorial team members travel and attend various IT events throughout the year to keep abreast of news and developments relevant to our interests and those of our community. The following schedule attempts to answer the question, Where in the world is SPCR?

2002-2012: A Decade of SPCR

About Us | The Silent Front
The passage of a decade is always considered a major milestone, and on Sunday April 1, 2012, SPCR entered its second decade.

Eight Years of SPCR

About Us | The Silent Front
Silent PC Review is officially eight years old today. Great thanks to all the supporters whose donations helped SPCR come this far, and hopefully go farther into the future. Much thanks, too, for all the corporate supporters over the years. SPCR's anechoic chamber remains the high point of all this support, and it has become the unique centerpoint of our identity among tech web sites. Thank you all!

Seven Years

About Us | The Silent Front

Seven is a number full of significance. In Christianity, the world was created in seven days. In Hindu mythology, there are seven worlds in the universe, seven seas in the world. In mathematics, it's a lucky prime. Randomly, there were seven wonders in the ancient world, Seven Years in Tibet, seven colors in a rainbow, seven virtues and seven deadly sins, Seven Samurai, seven years of bad luck, Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch, and Silent PC Review is officially seven years old today.

Make SPCR Even Better in 2008

About Us
A new sound measurement and recording system, and a <15dBA anechoic chamber for the SPCR lab: We aim to implement these improvements and use them in our reviews by the end of June 2008. We need your support: If you find SPCR helpful, please consider donating for our new projects.
