Same thing happened to myself. I used to post around 8+ threads a day and now I just don't get the time to since school and I had a girlfriend who did not understand my love for technology. Well the girlfriend thing was the biggest part. That's over now and I hope to contribute a whole lot more now. Plus this site, well actually Shazza and Hammer were the main reason I decided to drop $2,000 of my hard earned cash on an alienware laptop and I've never regretted it. Looking back I can actually say it was the best money I've spent in years. However a close second is my resent purchase of an 1996 Crown Victoria Police Enforcer cop car. The thing is sweet.
Yes we did have probably the best section of the notebook forums community here in the alienware mothership. I can honestly say that more Alienware users helped out the other laptop users than they did for their own sections i.e. Dell, HP, Toshiba, Sony, and the other sections. There are just an amazing amount of knowledge bundled up here.
