My Website - shall I continue?

Postby Zeb » Tue Nov 27, 2007 12:59 pm


I've had many websites come and go, all containing various data from my first crummy site, then my photography in a nice gallery to what it is now.

I can't be bothered to update it any more or finish it off.

What do you reckon I should do with the web space? Shall I scrap the Amiga stuff or what?

Maybe I'm just having "one of those days"...

Wouldn't that be a pity? In any case, please wait a couple of days so I can get a few of those disk images...

Yeah, it is a pity.

When I created the database behind the demos, games and application I optimised it as much as possible and have several tables running to minimise the amount of data being duplicated as possible. When adding new data I have to do it manually constantly checking several tables. I did start writing a script to add application data easily but changing it for the demos and games seems too much of a chore.

Unless anyone would like to help with the site and be co-ownership of it?

I had planned to make the database as large as possible as in download variety with the exception for games as there were so many versions available. I've got a TOSEC collection and at 17.5GB of games I wouldn't be able to have a server running to have that lot downloadable so I was selecting specific games.

As for the applications and demos, yes I did want to get as many added as was possible. I also had a crazy idea of linking to the forums here as another forum would be crazy when there are so many available already.

So, does anyone want to help?

Yeah, the whole site has and every other site I'm hosting - the bill hasn't been paid.

Hope to get it paid soon.

Wow thanks for that! I really appreciate it.

I've had a couple people sign my guestbook leaving quite nice comments and I've had a few people email me through my contact form saying how they like the site and asking for various things.
