Hondo's Bar

Technology forum?


Recommended Posts

I don't know if this comes under the banner of nintendorks but I would like to see a Tech forum. A place to discuss hardware rather than software and programming rather than programs. Perhaps it could just be a sub forum within nintendorks. Would there be enough techie heads here to justify it?

 

What does evryone else think?

Right now, tech stuff goes into Pimp Hand but i admit it doesnt flow; that's like our links-to-other-places and jokes and shit forum, mostly pics of hot people and uh, hot hondonians these days.

 

Same rules as they ever were: I see enough interest, and it can at least start a sub-forum. Weve got a # of mp3, PC and other talk in pimp hand now, if you wanna dig through & link me to the ones that apply, itd help your case.

 

But you gotta outline exactly what the forum's about, its name and the like if youre down, and get folks on board!

I for one would love to see a tech forum on Hondo's. I've got an endless supply of useless knowledge in the field that's just waiting to be tapped.

 

Plus, I love getting in debates over ATI vs. nVidia and whatnot. Ha.

Why not call it something like "The Wire"? Yes, I know a topic with the same name was posted recently about a show...but it kind of makes sense for a tech forum, I suppose.

 

I dunno, just throwing in my two cents again.

Just a few examples of the kind of threads that would go into the tech fourm. This is by no means an exhaustive list. I'll have a look round for more.

And a name suggestion would be:

 

"Hypercompuglobalmeganet"

Yeah i think its a good idea.... we could also include home cinema, stereo in this forum yeah?

 

Like why are we in the EU raped when it comes to prices on electrical goods

 

Eg. Mac Mini on Apple.Com $799, Same spec in Apple Store Ireland €809

Now according to xe.net €809 is about $1034, a difference of $235 for fucks sake!! Shipping on USPS is about $90 bucks!!!! hmmm that gives me an idea!!! :birf2:

Nah, im pretty much convinced, ill try to get it goin this weekend, or mid next week at the latest. you wanna mod, crimson? it means you gotta be around as a regular here & there....

 

you might wanna start a poll in pimp hand or town square or somehwere to come up with a name....so far, alls we got is "The Wire". also, how bout a short description, like the other forums got? i got a great army/camo skin that has nothing to do with it that i cant wait to use...

anyway, i kinda got bored and went & made it. its obviously rushed, and could use work (the name, description & look are all not set in stone) but its there, anyway, all 5 glorious toipcs. Ill try to find/add more, but if nothing else, it could use a "what's your PC specs?" thread as well as a PC help, both forthcoming if work doesnt pick up.

so, gunsmithx brought up the idea of a tech junkies forum, a sort've sharper image of hondos i guess. place for talk about electronics (TVs, stereos and the like) as well as other fun shit that's not directly computer related. im still unsure if this falls under Hon(DOS), or if we could make it fit that, or if we could use another subforum for basically toys (including the toy box/action figure thread!). what's everyone think; expan Hon(DOS) to fit electronics & toys, or does it warrant its own thing?

 

i mean, itd be cool to do a thread on this kinda shit.

I dunno i rekcon that could just fit under the banner of hon(dos). the last thing we need is more bloody sub-forums. hardly anyone posts in half the ones we have as it is. I'd be willing to compromise and change the name and look of hon(dos).

hah, part of why I made the iphone thread, I planned to make some more to force your hand but I've been busy. and I'm willing to help with it since I brought up the idea(mod, or w/e you need)

I'm all for expanding it to include home tech. Gunsmith could co-mod if he wants to. I like the idea of making it a forum proper. The inclusion of gadgets and stuff could help dust the cobwebs off the place with more traffic heh.

I love tech as much as the next guy, but a whole forum?? your thing but it's just gonna be a bigger space that gathers dust(unless it were to take over the Pimp Hand since it gets no traffic without hot chicks).

yeah, pimp hand was hot for the video link thread before youtube blew up, and people's personal sites. it got subdivided between hondos: the gathering and such, now its just barely not a smut forum.

 

i dont see tech itself as a forum alone, but tech + pc (non-gaming) talk, mebbe?

Even Crim said Hon(dos) does fuck all traffic. All of us talking about our AV setup isn't gonna remain consistent. New designated forum'll be a spike at best.

 

Why not combine with Pimp hand, move Hot guys to the powder room & hot chicks to... a new guys-only forum in Fight Club?
