No sh*t, man! I still stop in the forum to take a look at the threads, every one or two days. Not much going on lately, often 0 login users. But I noticed a rather interesting twist, there are over 40,000 anonymous users at this moment, and over 60,000 of them in one of the days last week! Somebody has hired lots of robots. ;)

Either that or someone has changed the lower and upper limits on the random number generator for a laugh :p

It's a bug that I've been battling - it seems to be "OK" when I look, then I wake up next morning and the counter isn't being reset. Must be the gremlins..

Its the complete and utter lack of content that's stopping old and new users coming on.

I'm pretty sure (as I do) people log on, see if there's anything interesting, and when there's not, they leave.

When was the last decent article for instance? There has been no reviews of any new hardware in years, so random traffic is really at a minimum.

The site is barely just 'ticking over'.

I blame AMD. They bragged so much about their Bulldozer cpu and it turned out to be a flop! Damn companies breaking our spirits! Wait till Nvidia comes out with their next series of video cards!

Well, there is this recent sequence of heatsink reviews by BoT
http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/topic/77357/

and there has been the occasional discussion on RAM v. performance and CPU v. performance, although those weren't "reviews" as such.

Maybe part of the prob is that most of us on HWA either don't have sweetheart deals with hardware manufacturers to get early free samples to test?

Or for the comparison category of "review" many of us are on household budgets that don't allow us to buy multiple cards to make comparisons?
