Hello everyone. I guess I'm feeling a little sentimental this evening
I bought my first ps3 for my daughter for Christmas in 2010. I've always been a pc guy since the psone died out. Yes, I'm old (38) but ever since a kid I've enjoyed poking about with computers and stuff. Anyway to cut to the chase, as you can see I don't post very much, but I've been around for almost a couple of years on here, and mostly read. At some point, every question has been asked at least twice. My point isn't to advocate read, read, read, but to point out what I've learned in doing so. This is the only ps3 dev site I'm a member of. I've looked at all of them at some point or another. But this site, even though not the largest of them, is the one I come back to for dependable answers, healthy questions and all round good karma. Any page you read on the other sites gets completely hijacked by stupid arguments about "insert argument here". I really don't know what's worse. A dude asking a question about something that he clearly hasn't read a sentence from any "how to" guide, or the next guy that gets all pissed off cos he's reacted the first guy's idiocy! Ugh, painful isn't it?
Anyway, back to the main point. All I really wanted to say is, in my time here of reading, I have learned a ton of information, that other than downgrading a ps3, I can't do a whole heck of a lot with...! But I have learned a ton, and I want to really thank everyone on here for asking mostly legitimate questions, and are answered as clearly as possible, by a community that clearly wants to learn and help everyone else learn. There's not many twats on here ruining it for everyone else.
I was on 3.55 cfw up until about a year ago, when 3.56 poked it's ugly head. my 12 year old daughter updated. Oops. Whatever, it was a dream while it lasted. I've just ordered my e3 flasher where I will have a whack at downgrading both of the machines that I currently own. One i will just downgrade and the other I will try to dual boot. I think I'm ready to do it. I've learned so much in here from the good advice from people on here that I think I can do it one handed, with my eyes closed, standing on my head.
Thanks for all the Knowledge guys. I'll report on how my 2 downgrades go. Great work!
