Re: Deleted TR

Kevin, lol. How long has it been since he's administrated here? Even JBI is gone now. Why am I still here, for that matter? Habit and just to see if the lights are still on. :P Habit, definitely.

Maybe the site is about to be taken offline?

Re: The Tech Report forums got a big upgrade

Considering the subjects of the latest messages on the blog, it looks as if the Tech Report tries to change into an information management blog, instead of a tech blog.

Allegedly there's a Canadian woman who says she's tested positive eight times. If true, any vaccine would be of limited use, similar to the flu vaccine.
