Your Voice Heard

I want DGAMER to have a great user experience. The site will have tons of news and information on accessibility and everything else that deals with gaming. One thing that I am going to work very hard on, is to build a very strong community.

With this and you in mind, I am curious, what sort of features would you like to see implemented onto the site? Whatever thing that you can think of, please let me know. It doesn’t matter what it may be, It will really help give the site a personal touch with everyone in mind.

Also, eventually I am going to search for some people to be regular contributors to DGAMER. I will be working out all of the details on what kind of person I will be looking for and what the job or jobs will entail. I would like a couple or few to have regular segments on the web show. I have so many things that I would like to add to the show and site but I am not sure if I can do it all. Unless you will be able to sit through an hour show. It will have the option to download each episode, so you can watch it on an Iphone, Ipod or the device of your choosing.

The next few months are going to be exciting for DGAMER. It will hopefully bring accessible gaming to the masses.

I will be out of town until monday and won’t be available until then.

Peace

New PC; Site Update

Several months ago my stupid POS (Peace Of S**t) desktop died. So, last week I finally broke down and bought a new one. This time instead of building a PC like I usually do, I bought a pre-built one from Shuttle PC. They make SFF (Small Form Factor) PC’s, they are very small, sleek and powerful. I just received mine yesterday and I must say that so far, I am very impressed by this machine. From the moment of powering it up, one of the nice things that I noticed was how quiet it is. You can barely hear it, even with the room completely silent (with all electronics and other devices turned off) it is hard to hear. The speed is… Well, all that I can say is WOW!!! Plus, the graphics are stunning. I am able to set all the graphics settings in games to the highest. I decided to play Grand Theft Auto IV first and it ran smoothly with no graphic glitches or slowing down of the machine. At the moment, I recommend that you give one of these a try. I bought the H7 G4500.

Here are my systems specs:

OS: MICROSOFT WINDOWS VISTA
Processor:
INTEL CORE 2 EXTREME QX9650 3.00GHZ 1333MHZ 12MB LGA775 45NM
Memory:
4GB (2X2GB) PC2-6400 800MHZ DDR2 NON-ECC
Graphics Card: GEFORCE GTX 280 1GB GDDR3
Hard Drive: 500GB SATA300 7200RPM 32MB Buffer HDD
Optical Drive:
4X BLUE-RAY TRIPLE WRITER SATA

Update on the new DGAMER site. I have just a few more ColdFusion Applications to add and graphics, then I will be ready to relaunch the site. I can’t give you an exact date but it isn’t far off.

DGAMER MESSAGE BOARDS Are Back

I finally got the DGAMER COMMUNITY FORUMS back up and running. I had to take them down after changing my web server over to support ColdFusion. The web server cant support both ColdFusion and PHP, so, some sacrifices had to be made. Anyway, I’m happy to say that they are back.

Check them out here.

Well, that is one item done, next is the web site. There is no breaking promises this time.

Promising Year

This year I feel is going to be a promising year for DGAMER, which also means good things for all of you. First, I am happy to say that the new website is very, very close to it’s re-re-re-launch. I promise this will be the last time, maybe, LOL. The only thing that it won’t have at this time is any registration or login but it will shortly after it goes live. Of course it will always be free to join.

The second thing is getting the forums back up. I am currently finishing them up at the moment, so, expect to see the forums any time. You will be required to register in order to post and respond to posts.

The third thing is the one thing that I’ve been hinting at for some time now. That is the DGAMER Web Show. It is a huge undertaking, especially for one person but I feel that it needs to be done. One of the main reasons for me putting a lot of work into this is because I want it to be as good as the shows at Revision3. I have been going back and forth deciding on doing this and do you know what was holding me back? This is stupid, I don’t like the sound of my voice and the fact that I’m on a ventilator I can only talk when I get a breath, this annoys me. I am now over how I sound and I found a solution to fix the pause between breaths. This is going to be a fun an exciting venture for me, I hope that you enjoy the content that I bring to you.

I have some other items in the works too but for now I will leave you in suspense.
