I'm wondering if blogging is one of those narcissistic things that you do when you need a little bit of closure on thoughts you're having. It's almost like you do it to make sure that everyone is either a) thinking the same way you do, or b) wondering what the hell you're talking about. Whatever the case may be, it never stops me for a second. It keeps the mind organised and shows that you're still thinking outside the realm of crunching numbers and calculating overclocks.
As I've mentioned in a couple of my posts, I'm still relatively new at this... and even though I used to work in IT, this means absolutely nothing after a few years out of the game. Getting on with real life is important, but falling back into the endless quest for technology and trying to keep up with the ever-changing world of hardware and software is a costly and time consuming exercise. But hey, whatever floats your boat.
Why do we do it? Who knows. Maybe some of us don't have anything else better to do with our time or money. Maybe some of us need a technological proving ground on which we can spill the blood of others to make up for our shortcomings in real life. Maybe it's just something to do in your spare time rather than looking up porn. For me personally, like reading or playing guitar, it keeps my mind active, and that's about as far as I take it.
In all due respect to those who inhabit the comfy microcosm of Overclock.net, this place is a pretty neat site. It has been designed well by geeks for geeks. It's something that the internet needs once in a while - a stomping ground for the computer-masses, a place where any man of any walk of life can fall into stride with others of his calibre and stand up and be counted.
Don't think for a second that I'm being cynical, I'm being dead serious.
Solid effort Overclock.net, keep the good work up.
