Some of you may or may not know me but I am one of the owners of PureOverclock.com. I am not too active on the forums but I am active behind the scenes keeping the servers up and running and helping with the design and direction of the site. We've been the owners for almost 2 years now and we've kept the entire team that was here before hand as close as we could.
I've made an introduction post in the past but due to some posts feel it may be a great time to rehash some of it. I've been into computers since I was a young child. My first experience was with a Commodore 64... after that, a 386 SX/25 with 4MB of RAM that over time was upgraded to a 486 SL66 with 8MB of RAM. I played Airwarrior and Doom over modem. I called local and long distance BBS's all before graduating high school. I've been a nerd my whole life and since childhood everything I've ever done since then has been related to computers and technology. From starting and running a successful ISP, owning a computer store to running multiple online forums. My house currently has 1 Mac Mini, 1 PC running Windows, 2 PC's running Linux (with 4 7950's per machine), 2 Macbook Pro's, 3 XBOX 360's, 1 PS3 and a handful of Raspberry Pi's and other gear.
To say that I'm not into computers or PC modding would be ridiculous. That doesn't even count the 75 Servers that run the network that I'm responsible for keeping up and running and get to play on all the time
I feel like I have to mention the above because of false information posted on the forums here. Recently events have occurred that have prompted us to part ways with Stan. Stan has done an amazing job working with us over the years and I don't think his shoes will ever be completely filled. However, PureOverclock.com is not about one person. It is a community and a team. I believe that we will be able to move forward and continue to slowly improve the site and continue to bring great content to the members.
We've seen some people come and go... I don't want to get into any specific reasons for anyone leaving. I won't do that with regards to Stan's departure either. Suffice it to say that we obviously do not agree on many different aspects of how to run this site and how to work with team members.
We are grateful to Stan for all that he has done and he will always be welcome in the forums.
It is unfortunate that some misinformation appears to be out there regarding this matter. I will not stoop to mud slinging so all I can say is that we are committed to the site and community and will continue to keep PureOverclock the amazing site that it is.
