    I know, you were probably expecting some news on the R600, or the G90, or something actually having to do with the hardware/gaming world. However, one of our forum members, Slater, is a lot closer to the gaming community than you think. Like most techPowerUp! forum members, Slater is someone who's very willing to help someone in need. If you've ever had a problem with hackers, Windows, or programming, you probably know Slater very well. I just thought it would interest some of you to know that Slater will be going into surgery, as his hand needs reconstructing. Slater is known for posting his wisdom in such helpful threads as the "sticky" Reccomended Software.

    good luck dude, and remember, you dont need to use two hands to have fun ;)
    Unless its your favoured hand, in which case, I hope it recovers quickly :)

    Oh the 7 Million Dollar Guy within our community? Great news - I will do the review of your new hand when it's finished! ;-)

    No, seriously - good luck and all the best!
