    As most of you probably know, Spymac have been touting "Spymac 4" for a while now, and the site has been down for days for the upgrade. Site still says it goes live Sept 1st, but it's now 10am GMT Sept 2nd and nothing has changed.

    Typical :rolleyes:

    I visit there maybe once every few months when I feel stupid and it helps to remove that feeling.

    We need more high res stuff like the ones you uploaded. Some nice sky pictures would be cool especially with this nice weather we're getting.

    Seems to be up now, although the email hasn't arrived yet and the services are offline.

    Much improvements over last version. Doesn't look like a huge Sunday ad circular and I can actually fit the whole sit on my screen, amazing :)

    The gallery is filled with junk after all those foreigners signed up for free email accounts. It's not even a mac community anymore. Their site 3.0 sucks!!

    I visited daily to gawk at Mac setups.

    Theres almost a page of new setups a day!

    Then, if I'm feeling dumb, I venture into the forums ... I quickly snap out of it.

    typical spymac, their management is terrible. it might be a few weeks before the forums and gallery is done. they had this date announced for months and yet still couldn't deliver.

    Hilarious -- I love the way you get right to the point, Lacero :)

    I, on the other hand, actually like Spymac. Granted, I was pretty pissed and stopped going shortly after their 1GB mail and population surge, but I since returned and actually enjoy it again. I love their gallery and community, but I prefer the Macrumors forums by far. There are a lot of trash posts there due to people wanting a higher post-count, but I don't really sense that here at all.

    I think Spymac 4 is a giant improvement over Spymac 3. I can't wait to see the rest.

    Fishes,

    I really wish it were not left justified...I generally don't like when websites are designed that way, although there are some exceptions.

    I seriously doubt they will revolutionize the web.... :rolleyes:

    Like SpyMac for the cool pictures, and hated its layout and forums. Now I just hate the forums... :rolleyes:
