Today I thought I’d tell you guys a little about the various blogs and websites affiliated with this one, as each one is well worth a visit for one reason or another.
We’ll start with Dav3design, run by my friend Dave who I’ve known for more than 20 years. His blog features an eclectic mix of personal adventures, unusual photography and some excellent 3D designs mainly based on various vehicles.
He updates the site regularly so it’s definitely worth bookmarking it, or if you’re a fellow WordPress user, subscribing.
DXX: The Blog
Next us is DXX: The Blog, which is one for the wrestling fans; e-fedding in particular. DXX was one of the most active and consistently enjoyable e-fed forums between 2006 and 2009, in that three year period seeing some memorable feuds, characters, title changes and controversies.
Unfortunately the site was eventually shut down, but fortunately most of the core members keep in contact one way or another and this blog is designed to chronicle an eventual return for the site. If e-feds or wrestling in general interest you keep an eye on this one.
Today is August 11th, a day which many Xbox 360 owners have anticipated for quite some time. This is because at this years Microsoft E3 conference they revealed a new Dashboard update with rather cool features like Facebook, Last.FM and Twitter, but now that the big day is finally upon us… none of those features are being included. At least not yet.
What we are getting today includes a Netflix update (you can have ‘movie parties’ complete with virtual popcorn among other things and the Games on Demand service which allows you to download full Xbox and Xbox 360 games to keep forever. There’s also a new avatar marketplace where you can buy clothes for your avatar, if you’re an idiot or have literally nothing better to do with you Microsoft Points. There are also a few navigational changes, minor tweaks and other uninteresting features with little benefit to the user, but unfortunately no Twitter, no Facebook and no Last.FM. The latter two features were the ones I was looking forward to, and with a release date not for some time (no exact date either) I’m a little annoyed that today’s update contains nothing I care about.
Despite the disappointment that got me to thinking. What updates would be ideal to the dashboard? What would be some brilliant features that would get the community buzzing (for better or worse)?
