And really, there is nothing wrong with that.

A little while ago (maybe a year or two or so) being linked on Slashdot was a pretty big thing, now it just kind of happens (and the servers don't die, which is new and exciting!). You guys do things like reviewing alienware machines, which I doubt you would have even considered a couple years ago. You added an apple section in an attempt to appeal to that group of viewers, redesigned your site to look more trendish...
You really have increased the number of viewers visiting your site, but in doing so you have lost a lot of what made bit-tech bit-tech (imo of course). I personally have stopped visiting multiple times a day, and to be frank it is unusual for me to visit multiple times a week (or month for that matter), whatever draw was there for me has now disappeared.
This is not a complaint, attack, or a show of disrespect towards the people that make bit-tech what it is, just an observation of a nobody forum member who misses the "old bit-tech."
And that's all I have to say about that :p (extra kudos if you spot the movie refrence!)
