[quote]New Posting Guidelines Quote for CURRENT Hardware:
"This area should be used to discuss...hardware that is CURRENTLY shipping" (caps mine).
These machines are NOT shipping. The 1.2GhzDP will not ship until September. The thread in question actually discussed the relevance of a 1 vs. 2 L3 cache (amongst everything else) which will not be resolved until September. Is this not STILL Future Hardware?
(Sorry, I really hate it when I see nothing but little 'locked folder' icons, and today it just pushed me over the edge). <hr></blockquote>
yeah, moving threads can be a pain. one thing to keep in mind though is that the thread was talking about all of the models. some are shipping (1-3 days) some aren't. (6-8 weeks.)
for the most part the moves were just to keep from having duplicate threads in both future hardware and current hardware discussing the exact same things. it can be tough keeping track of which are covering what. (at least that would be why i would move them)
you can still follow them in current hardware. it's not as lively as future hardware, but i promise there can been some good discussions there as well.
(and if you look on the CH front page, only 2 locked threads, and both were plain old moved threads.) good god, one was even moved to
future hardware. :eek: go figure.
seriously, for the most part, if you don't want to see locked threads (i think most are for moves) then post them in the right place.
after a new product release there's bound to be a massive move of threads as what was once future hardware becomes current hardware. *shrug*
not much you can do about that.
