      Hey I have a sort of tech problem you could call it...I would like to know any direction you could give regarding the creation of my own website possibly for future businesss needs? Especially seeing what you have created here gives me inspiration to do something similar and no worries it doesn't compete it's completely medical in focus.
      1. Kyle_Bennett
        Sorry brother, no direction I can give you except to say make sure you have a product to sell. Content is going in the shitter.

      I have a dumb question. Years ago I was involved in a Mini Storage software company called MSTC. I helped a guy named Kyle back in the mid 90's get his system running.
      You don't happen to own that mini storage, do you?

      Kyle due to a memory problem because of 2 cardiac meds I am on, I had forgotten my password and opened a new account. Please merge the Ira Wechsler username account into my older os2wiz account. It would be appreciated. The older account on my desktop has 80 messages, the Ira Wechsler user name only has 18 posts. I would like to reach that critical 100 post level so I would be eligible to use the for sale thread
      1. Kyle_Bennett
        You would need to email me at and let me know the email addresses on both accounts.

      (1)Hi Kyle,

      I seem to have angered the [H] gods again, spent like 30 minutes constructing a thread about stuff I want to sell, or trade, the system won't let me post the thread. I have run afoul of you guys in the past, and I've always been able to make amends. I'm not sure what I have done wrong this time,

      Personally, I think its retarded to offer that many different versions of the same chipset this early in.

      Hey man. just a quick idea.. Looked over at Asus, and they went insane-o in the brain-o it looks like. They've got something like 25 different 270 & 250 based motherboards. Some ornery Texan needs to roll up his sleeves and separate the cream from the crap if ya know what I mean? It's impossible to tell what board offers what over what board based on their pages EXTREMELY limited 'comparison' options.

      How come the seasonic psu promotion doesn't have it's own thread? Also when registering should I list [H] or [H]
      1. Kyle_Bennett
        Because we are not handling the giveaway. Either is fine for entry, should make no difference.

      Any Community Launch events planned for the GTX 1080 in the Dallas area?

      EDIT: I ask, because I was at the TigerDirect/Galaxy launch event for the 780. So I figured if you would be the best bet.
      1. Kyle_Bennett
        Nope. :(

      Hello Kyle. I have been a member for about 8 yrs. I can't login. I created this new acct to reach out to you. My previous acct was dccmadams. I need a reset on my password, but I don't see it coming thru on my email. I have been using for many years. If I could get a reset link to that account for dccmadams, that would be great. Thanks, Dave Adams.

      Greetings Kyle,
      I read and watched your Core i7 920 material 2008/09 and was blown away. Ordered similar parts based around the 920, P6T Deluxe, Corsair DDR3 and enjoyed my PC ever since. I want to thank you and your staff for the in dept reviews on enthousiast stuff. Bought a 2nd hand 980X, best upgrade ever. My vintage 2009 1366 platform is amazing thanks to you.

      You deleted a post I made in my thread (monitor help). Reason you stated is I was CRT trolling. I wasn't. I think you mistook my post with someone elses. Not a big deal really, I just would hate to be labeled a troll or something being new here and all.

      Hello Kyle,

      Could you share more information on why my comment in the Crossfire thread was deleted (regarding another AMD card possibly being better than the Fury X) . I know all about the filthy practices AMD played to make sure the reviews regarding that card were to their liking, but does that also mean that that card may not be mentioned anymore on ? Or was there another reason?

      Kind regards,

      hello Kyle. I just joined the forum, and would like to post a couple questions, as well as help a few people out. I can not post in any thread or really do anything. could you help with that

      Good Morning Kyle,
      I'd like to ask for access to the buy/sell forum to make a few purchases from users. I'm a long time lurker at HF and have been active on since 2005 and have an extensive heatware profile @ I don't have the 100 post requirement for access; I am a really busy professional who hasn't had much time to be part of the community lately. I understand if you have to stick to the 100 post requirement, but HF has a much more active buy/sell user base, and I'd love to be able to participate. Either way, I'll spend some time posting in the forums in the near future when I get a chance. Thanks for the consideration!

      Hi Kyle,

      There is an MSI ad that is popping up over other stuff on the main page.

      We are having to refresh at least once to get it to go away. Sometimes it has taken me 3 page refreshes to get it to go away.

      It is affecting pretty much all browsers.

      Please see this thread.

      Hi Kyle, i made a thread in the general hardware forum, but wasn't able to add a poll in time. I reposted the thread with a poll now, but the old thread can be deleted. the old thread is this:

      thanks a lot.

      Hey there Kyle-

      Sorry to bother you. I really appreciate everything you do for all of us clowns.

      I forgot my password, and I think the e-mail address on file is one of my abandoned ones.

      My username is jen4950 (obviously with this PM).


      I’d like to switch it to and get a new password..

      Hope things are going well for you.

      Have a good one-


      P.S.- thanks for the custom title ;)
