We're about halfway through October and about two weeks out from our most esteemed /tech/nician's autistic tantrum over on /operate/:
>>>/operate/7122it's good reading, he came in with a balloon knot and left with a rectum that you could park a utility van in
so it seems like a good time to reassess the state of the board.
Since October 1st, there have been 0.6 original posts per day on /tech/. I use the term "original" with some reservation, as some of them are just verbatim reposts from 8/tech/. There have been an average of 8.13 replies per day, but most of them were one-line comments or barbs without substance, or memes, or corrections to a previous post. We're averaging about 1 substantive reply per day. Two on a good day. I didn't feel like digging into the numbers any further, but it's my impression that these averages don't even reflect how dire the situation is, as there was a burst of activity at the beginning of the month that has tapered off significantly.
/tech/ is not dead, but it's on life support, and, ironically, none of its denizens seems to know how to service the life support machine.
It would be a shame for this alternative to pigchan and Hiroshima's /g/ to wither through neglect.
Let's brainstorm ideas for keeping this place alive.
