    I can see users not logging in as much on July 4th, but now there is only about 50 users on at any time. There used to be about 100 users online most of the time. Where did everyone go?

    Let's be honest. The site just isn't as interesting as it used to be. Weather it be because of Apple's stronger grip on leaks, or just a weaning interest in Mac speculation - the rumors/discussion just aren't that "sexy" anymore. Say what you will about the iWalk, it was damn entertaining and everyone remembers it.

    No G5's on the horizon, the new iMac has been unveiled, and Apple is cracking down on rumor sites. The Rumors Golden Age has given way to the Rumors Dark Ages (no fault of Arn's).

    I've been to busy playing Return to Castle Wolfenstein at around 11 at night (the usual time when I am posting online.) Those catacombs sure made me s**t in my pants the first time around. :D

    Next week will probably be very busy. I would imagine that the rumors will be in full swing. I think there has been less activity lately because some of us have had a lot going on in their lives. cleo on vacation, Duke and I working. Jello getting, well, we all know what jello does...drink....golf....drink...golf.... Eye has been busy, Ensign had the lighting strike. Tea is working, jello is working, all of us have just been real busy lately. That is all. It will pick back up.

    still check in a couple of times a day, to see if anything burns.
    But posting has been out of the question these last couple of months, 'cause of tooooo much work. But hey, you can't have it all

    re: where I've been...

    Well first off...I've been on a 4 day weekend...haven't worked since Wednesday...and haven't spent much time on the computer...

    I normally spend about 15 hours a day in front of a computer...and I've spent probably a total of 3 in the past several days...

    and it's been nice... ;)

    plus...I'm doing all my normal stuff...have a few projects going on...and I've actually been going out a bunch with one of my buddies...

    no worries though...Monday I turn back into a pumpkin... ;)

    I blame APPLE

    There havent been any interesting rumors, we have been posting mostly the same threads or ones on people's shoes and the the color of their laces, that kinda stuff.

    I think that APPLEs BREAK DOWN on the rumor sites as chronicled of late.
    Indicates why there has been such a quiet time around here at a time when usually its packed with news or rumors.:)

    APPLE has been on damage control, no leaks, nothing.

    Why, well APPLE hates rumor sites, hates leaks, hates not having control.

    So its been dry, dry , dry! No rumors and I doubt that there will be.

    Even SPy MAc hasnt made up anything yet!

    Eck...spymac. I personally trust rumors from Macrumors, Apple news, and Cnet. These guys hardly ever bring up false rumors, especially these guys at Macrumors. :D

    Yesterday, I was helping my parents work on the house in Sweden (yes, for almost the whole :eek:ing day) for the move there. I don't need to give the details about the day. But ask and I shall bore you! :D

    I will tell you that afterwards the three of us used the last hours of the day in a really expensive, small, italian restaurant. The one real pain about last night was that there was a solid 30 to 40 minute wait between the appetizer (sp) and the main course. How bored I was!

    Today I am back in full force. And I plan to stay that way for as long as I can.

    Bored also!

    The only hope that I have is that APPLE is creating this thick blanket of secrecy because there is soemthing very VERY exciting coming out this MWNY!

    Of course to speculate without a single source of rumor would be futile.

    If only SpyMac would do something stupid so that we could rant about them and how impossible whatever they say is!

    Well we could always start a couple of hundred "iWALK" threads in the main discussion forum and have them be shut down by eye. At least that would give us something to do. :D

    >this guy beat [us] to it.:D
    And, as a result, only a quarter of his threads have been closed!

    Lately, it just seems as if the forums have been slow, but that happy-go-lucky (S)hit[onbliss] character sure made our day. Granted, I did have a case or two ready, but they got warm on me, as I mentioned.

    As for the iWalk threads, didn't Steve Jobs himself register and say that such a name was ridiculous? I'm pretty sure he did, just before the San Fransisco Expo.

    So you are saying that once you get bored with the rumors we'll have to get a job? Then once we get a job we'll be bored and want to go on Macrumors? That sounds like a plan! :D

    Well, somebody bring up an intelligent topic! I think I will since so many of you are bored....
