A NES Site I've created, Magazine in the works

I know it's not Amiga related and I'll probably get chased with pitchforks for admitting this but my Amiga is not my number 1 retro system it's the NES

For the past coulpe of months I've been writing reviews, taking photos, compiling a database and coding a website the result of which is here:

http://www.nes-bit.com/

All Rab C jokes asides this is the result of a lot of hard work and I'm hoping will help build a community of it's own so please take the time to at least have a look guys

Hey Lorfarius, the site is pretty awesome! And when it comes to game consoles I'll agree that nothing beats the NES.

I wanted to know why nes sux smelly balls, but your opinions on linux were such ill informed bollocks i didnt even get that far.
It's like you tried a distribution from 1998 and got the hump after 10 minutes.

Visited this from your vid and it rocks!!!!!

I think many people on this board love all forms of retrogaming - so this definitely deserves a post!

Looking through the site, that must have taken ages. I know how draining repetitive jobs can become, but also know it becomes an obsession to get the work finished.

I bet you worked your way through some late nights on that one!

Well worth it though. That's something you can be proud of for life.

The hardest part was the actual database. I think I lost about 45 hours of my life (quite a few weekends!) putting that all into the site and making sure it worked. Not to mention the 50 or so reviews I had to write.

Hard to think it's taken me close to 4 months but I'm glad it's all done and I can start to focus on making some proper content for everyone enjoy

Yeah good to put a face to the name . Sadly I didn't see you again after the Sensi match I was playing (which I won 5-1 , not bad after being knocked out of the earlier tournament in the 1st round!) but what a weekend! Had a fantastic time.
