ask yerself how many posts YOU would have if you had eight hours a day to spend just on this forums waiting for something new to talk about or to answer someone's ramblings.... this is why my post count rises as such.

Gleek, I assume you post while on the job based on the 8 hours per day quote. What kind of job do you do ? I would guess that you are a Unix administrator (kind of like the Maytag repairman, waiting around for things to fix, but nothing ever breaks) based on a few of your previous posts a while back.

I agree that at this time, Matrox perhaps no longer deserves its own category.

correct you are. i'm a unix sysadmin. things DO break (rarely), but most
of the problems are PEBUAK (problem exists between user and keyboard)
and that pretty much takes up much of the unnecessary time to set these
people straight. when nothing else is going on, sure why not - it's forum
posting time! :D
