I will certanly work on making this as professional as I can, without being profit driven. In no way will I attempt to make any money on this. I think that would take away from the spirit of it. A booth at Comdex would rock, but I think I will just stay at a motel and visit for Comdex 2000. Maybie we will get some attention from some rich overclocker who can get us a booth every year. Cross you're fingers.
Geeze guys. First, let me say how much I apreciate all the volunteers. Everyone is offering to pitch in some way or another. Second, I will be working a little slowely for a few days. I had planed on having the first version of the beta site up by Tuesday night, but i destroyed my comp's bios when I got off work yesterday morning. i tried to flash it, and for the first time in my life, I watched a bios flash fail. It erased my old bios fine, and bombed out before it reprogrammed it. I plan on borrowing a mb to stick one of the two processors from my dead machine in from a friend until I can get a new dual P-II mb. I should be up to full speed by next weekend, and hopefully have the site completed by the end of this weekend despite my unfortunate mistake. Thanks again for the support.
Allright--here is your chance to help shape the future of overclocking. I'm going to help in the making of this little club, and I need some input.
What exactly do you want from it? Now is the time to speak out, while it's all being planned.
Suggest it over at http://3ag.net/overclockers/index.php
One bit of information we could really use on David's suggestion page above is you're idea of a good domain name for the organization. This will come into play a month or two down the road, but it isn't to early to take suggestions. Drop by the link above and let us know what you think would be good. Tell us what you want to see. Think about it first though. What recources for overclockers would you enjoy that are not currently available to you're knowledge.

I can host a European mirror, if we need one.
I have a 256kbps connection at home.
I currently run IIS3.0 with ASP as my webserver, but I dont see why I couldn't find time to set up a UNIX-based webserver if needed or upgrade to IIS4.0. And I have 5 years working experience with LAN/WAN, security and programming.
I could even name this site the "Overclockers against Facism" site :-)

Actually guys this thread is the one that created OCN. The Overclockers Network is a baby of this idea. So you see we actually created one as about a month after this thread. Any other sites are welcomed in the world of overclocking. The more sites on the Overclockers Web Ring the better.
