new web site

I am not sure if I have posted this before but I thought I would pass this along..... there is tons of excellent tech articles. The site is a=maintained and the tech articles are written by Doc Frohmader. He has written articles for alot of the current publications. It is nice to see a web site based on lagitimate technical articles. I just thought I would share with my fellow rodders.

I just had a good look at

The first valid link off of their homepage leads to a list of advertisers. Then, a link to their articles. Then, a link to "products" (more advertisements). The link to their scant forums is second-to-last, and you must register to read posts.

I looked at a bunch of articles across different categories. Many of them seemed to be provided in association with advertisers on the site, with little low-buck tech. Many of the articles are mostly installation manuals for their parts.

It's inappropriate to print articles written with an advertiser, about installing that advertiser's parts, while running an ad for that advertiser on the very same page. Especially considering how vigorously promotes itself as "never sold out", "not advertorial", and "an independent voice providing readers honest information". Their logo is even a crossed-out bull. is the same slop that the big mags are putting out. Primarily advertisements, with an abundance of advertiser-oriented articles, and the occasional decent article thrown in there.

It's amazing what passes for "tech" these days.
