P.S. Unfortunately, I think the Vede is happily esconced in his new career in the game publishing business. During my first stint here, whenever he came around the Max PC labs, he was greeted kind of like Kramer from Seinfeld. It was always pretty funny.

Thanks guys. I promise to uphold the fine traditions at Max PC. And yeah, that's quite a picture. I have a great face for podcast. :)

My first couple of week has been pretty awesome (and busy). We have lots of interesting new stories and ideas planned for print and online. I'll keep you guys updated as we go. 

I love hearing ideas, so anytime you like, drop me a line at george@maximumpc.com and let me know what you think, what you're interested in reading about, or anything else.

Whoa, ugly mug.  Luckily this is a PC magazine and not GQ.

I agree with others - keep Gordon.  He rocks!

Welcome back man! If you can also bribe TheVede even for a small part on a gaming section that'll be awesome. :)

"...Phillips goes back to full-time editorial directing -- whatever that is
--"

HA!  Does sound like a job that pays well with little work involved. Someone correct me.

avatar

JonPhillips

Lot's of work involved, actually. It's just very hard to explain! (I wrote the "whatever that is" line).

avatar

dracoress

If he goes...the website gets deleted and podcast gets taken off my RSS feeder.  Make sure you make him happy...well...as happy as you can make Gordon :)

avatar

JonPhillips

He isn't going anywhere. After all, what other magazine/website/company would let him spew so much cussing and complaints on the podcast (let alone at his desk)?

avatar

fragonman

bwahaha way too true

supercourier comment from the ibuypower $3000 PC contest

" How did the CEO's wife manage to win under her maiden name?  And why did I have to invoke the Freedom of Information Act via U.S. Postal Service rather than having it posted online? Is the clarity of this contest inversely proportional to iBuypower's BBB rating? Just wondering..."

so whats the story? True or False

avatar

atcastle

Completely false. We're still waiting to hear back from our winner before we make the announcement, but it's not the CEO of iBUYPOWER's wife (who I assume could get an iBUYPOWER PC without having to cheat in a contest) and nobody has invoked the Freedom of Information Act. Don't worry, as soon as we can (very soon), we will post an announcment right here on the site.

avatar

nedwards

False. No winner announced yet. Also, contest rules clearly state: "Employees of Sponsors, their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, and agents, and foregoing employees’ household or immediate family members (defined as parent, spouse, child, sibling, or grandparent) are NOT eligible to enter Contest. "

As a member of the community may I say welcome and at the same time offer a suggestion.  Please use your mighty powers for the greater good.  You can do this by removing the spam filter as it is driving everyone nuts.  :P  Hope to hear ya on the NoBS Podcast soon.

Been a reader since 99' and probably always will be. Can't say I don't miss Will, but welcome back George!

The magazine was at its low point when this guy was here, and they bring him back?

avatar

David Gerrold

Just don't feed them after midnight or get them wet....

avatar

Caboose

 You're thinking of Gremlins... Tribbles just breed and breed and breed and breed...

 But they're so cute and fuzzy and purr when you pet them. Unless you're a Klingon (If you play STO, try giving a Klingon crew member a Tribble and see what happens)

As long as Gordon Mah Ung is staying im also staying.

Please make sure he stays.

Keith E. Whisman

And for his first act as Editor In Chief is to Fire the Staff that he has authority to fire and try to convince the others that he can't that he can.

Welcome back George. It was a completely different magazine back in the day so I'm interested to see how your going to change it. How you intend to put your own personal touch to the magazine. Is the website going to change to the much needed LCARS theme? The magazine pages be numbered in binary? A special section written entirely in klingon for those of us that speak it?

Good luck

 It will be interesting to see where MPC goes from here. I started coming in '08 so I have no idea how things were in '04 when he was in.

MPC has been pretty solid all throughout, if you ask me. Been a reader since '99.

What he said.

Another vote for fixing the Spam filter. It failed a few weeks ago when commenting on an article becuase of one word and the word was used in the articles TITLE! lame
