EggXpert is the new official forum area for Newegg

Online retailer of computer hardware and accessories Newegg.com is putting its latest venture square in the hands of the PC enthusiast community. Earlier this month, Newegg quietly launched its own community site called EggXpert.com with a forums section and blogs for its users.

Currently in an open beta stage, EggXpert describes itself as “an extensive and easy-to-use online tech community designed specifically for PC & consumer electronics enthusiasts like yourself.” Users can interact with each other via online forums, blogs and regular interactive events.

EggXpert likely realizes that a good portion of Newegg customers are PC do-it-yourself types, and have opened a forum dedicated to the DIY crowd and even overclockers. Appropriately, situated right below the overclockers’ area is a forum dedicated to helping with hardware troubles.

Unlike many other hardware enthusiast forums on the Internet, EggXpert does not have an area dedicated for its members to buy, sell and trade their computer goods. In place of a traditional marketplace section are forums where users can discuss and inform each other of hot deals, even if they aren’t products from Newegg.com

Since the site’s launch in early April, the forum has amassed over 5,500 members who have contributed to 2,444 threads and 3,674 posts.

I have to laugh at this, you can thank the old Progressive Conservative party for GST. And, I doubt any party would have the political capital to dismantle universal health coverage in Canada. I can see both sides to the argument, but its just NOT going to happen.

I don't care who introduced taxes. I vote only for those who reduce it. The moment Conservatives stop reducing GST or introduce other taxes that I notice - I stop voting for them. Plain and simple.

No party will do that, I agree, but it's happening by itself, fortunately. Private clinics started to pop up here and there and I know some local companies arranging for US hospital treatment (I was almost gong south when local doctor told me I will see liver specialist in NINE MONTHS, NOT EARLIER - you Americans don't realize how lucky you are, really). I don't know how many years it'll take but looks like local commies will get it up their red fat a$$es - the private clinics will win the fight in the end. "You just wait" (C) Malcolm Betruger. Finally, I won't have to wait for NINE MONTHS anymore, woohoo!

The last time I had to see a specialist, I got an appointment in 24 hours. Thank god I dont have universal healthcare, or I'd be dead now.

you're definitely from the US, only _24_ _hours_ for a specialist appointment - that's unheard of in Canada (besides commie Canadian government of course)
