Default tech-forums.net/pc/ - look, it's a placeholder!

Every time I type techist.com in the URL, it goes to the "main" page, and at first glance, I would assume it's a place-holder site (one that sits collecting ad fees on an unused domain). Now it might just be me, but why isn't it www.techist.com? Why the /pc/?

It would make sense for testing the new board, but I can't see anyone reverting to the old one at this point.

the people or mods that set up the site have a problem with finishing the front page
it just like how some of the features and functions of the site are still not working

When TF was upgraded, it was imported from its original address to the /pc/ address, which was the pace holder for TF2. Larry is thinking about making a portal page for TF, but has some major things happening in RL right now, like medical problems with his new baby.
