You got a great thing going. One of the very few PC-tech sites that I regularly visit - always a pleasure.

Still one of my favorite sites. Been here since the beginning! I still remember one of the first times I chatted with Mike and I knew he was a pretty knowledgeable guy. Quieted my first enermax to a dead quiet whisper with his instructions. Congrats and thanks for all the excellent work. Indeed, we have come a long way - finding quiet parts to work with is much easier now and there is less need for DIY!

Congratulations and a BIG thanks for all the effort you've put in to make this THE best website in the world for quietning down PC noise, I cannot count the hours of enjoyment I've had reading learning and carrying out mods on my own PC because of this website.

Keep up the great work and I look forward to the next 2 years it will be very interesting to imagine where you'll be at that time.

SPCR's 4th Anniversary

Post by johnc » Wed Apr 05, 2006 7:17 am

Mike, you and the other folks who keep SPCR humming (very quietly, with a frequency profile that is refreshing) deserve a big round of applause.

You have brought order out of chaos.

Thanks again for your great work.

Happy birthday SPCR!

On an aside. Mike have you trademarked SPCR here in Canada?

About 3 years ago I only had tomshardware to say if something was "silent" and bought water coling to get quit computer. And Boy I was disipointed. For about 2 years ago I started to searh for silent computing, there was not mutch to find. But then I stumbled across SPCR.

But now I know that Tomshardware (and many other sites) referens to silent is computer was/is wery difrent.

Now 2 years later. There is still only one place I can trust on silent computing. And it is SPCR. Time for a new computer have arived to and it is time to put my knowledge to test, that I have aquierd from here.

Thanks for making the best site for a silent computer. Yepp you are realy the best, if you didnt know that!! :)

I just happen to notice that no note was made of the 5th year. Seems like a big number to me, but it went by without much noise made about it (a couple days later there was that announcement on the unofficial SPCR IRC).

Ah well, happy belated 5th birthday, SPCR!

Nice of you to notice and comment Gxcad. 8)

Yeah, it passed by my notice, I think because I was so busy with getting EPCR ready, and others, well, maybe they have less reason to notice. It's a bit of a surprise to me that I'm still doing this. :lol:

It's true that most businesses, both profit & nonprofit (SPCR is not profitable but is a business as it needs/makes revenue, has expenses and must have both to survive), don't reach 5 years. They fail, or their owners lose interest, etc... So I guess it was something to celebrate.

No reason why we can't celebrate now!

Go ahead and take the day off guys, have a bunch of drinks (or whatever poisons you fancy), and celebrate quieting computing today. :lol: :lol:

Now how did that happen?! I'd meant to make some big deal of it, but no, I let it slip by again. :roll: Don't know how many of you saw this article in the NY Times about web bloggers working themselves to death. It could have happened to me in the first couple of years... but I'm making sure I stay well clear of that space now.

So here we are still cruising along six years later. Practically a senile age by web standards. :lol: Funny, but I couldn't help notice that some of the earliest articles at SPCR, are still being linked out there today, like this...

Wouldn't that be validation of the good quality of that early (and of course the new) content?

I think a mention of this site in a March 2003 LangaList article first brought me here. Though I'll admit, I'm an occasional, as opposed to "business class" flier.

Congrats on another birthday. I should be able to remember it -- it's close to my own.
