NEWS w/o ICONS

It has begun... - October 18,2002 by JoseQ
I think it's time I start pushing myself into getting this site back into action. I figured about a week ago that if I didn't start doing something serious about coming back, I would never do it, and decided that a good way to force me back into action would be to simply start posting news and catch up as I went, instead of trying to get my emulation degree first. I have been playing with emulators a lot lately, although mostly old stuff, but everything should come back to me sooner or later.
Now, I have read comments that made a lot of sense. Some saying that this will be just another one of many websites. Why would I simply add another news site to an already established and existing lineup of emulation sites? Well for one, I always liked to think that EmuViews was a bit different than other sites, and I'm not about to stop thinking that now. Not only will EmuViews eventually offer all that it offered before I retired, but I will think of new additions that will surely make this even more fun than it was.
As for my future plans, I'm rebuilding the site from the ground up. There's a lot of useful data that will obviously stay (ReViews, ROM Profiles, Emulator Profiles, game ratings, polls), but the back-end that manages all of it is being built from scratch. Once that is completed, it will open the door for my new ideas and addition.
In the meantime, I will continue to post news, start rebuilding my network of rumor birds, and make contact once again with the good old friends in emulation land, many of wish have kept in touch over this longer than a year period. I have stayed a passive member of MAMEDEV and MESSDEV, and will try to have my birds setup camps near the other projects, for the Rumor Mill to kick back in. I don't expect the Rumor Mill to be back for a while, so please be patient with that.
Just thought I'd explain a little about what's going on behind the screens at EmuViews, so sit tight and enjoy the ride. If you have any suggestions, as usual, they're more than welcome! Thanks for sticking around and thanks for reading!

I always thought EmuViews was the best no BS source for news, emulators, and ROMS!

Now let me set my homepage back to EmuViews!

Howdy!

Thanks for all the very nice comments. I guess the great majority of you are happy to see the site come back, and I'm happier than I expected to be back in action. =) It kind of fills a void I didn't know I had.

Hopefully everything will be back in order soon, and people will enjoy the surprises I have in store for all the EmuViewers. =)

Great! Good luck with the come back... I plan to rebuild my website (kinox) since quite long too, in PHP too, as it is a marvellous language for doing web stuff ;-) I am just a bit lazy, but it is like you, sometime I just need to push myself and tell myself to at less start things off, rather than only think. Don't we think too much? ;-P

Not only for you but for all the emu scene. It's long time waiting your return.... Good luck. Thanks a lot.

In Spanish (I think JoseQ understand this language): Por fin una buena noticia en la escena: el regreso de emuviews.

Buena suerte y muchas gracias por volver.

Hello Jose,

I know I'm a bit late, but I have to get back into the habbit of checking your views on a daily basis.
I've been with you since 1998 (or thereabouts) and I hope that you can find the energy again to make your site the greatest again.

Just wanted to say: It's great to have you back again.

Thanks ivw, I sure will.

For some of the features I'm planning, I will most definitely need help from volunteers. We'll see how that goes.

First I want to convert the whole site to PHP. I'm almost done with the main page, but there's a lot of work left (emulators, roms, chat, the views, toplists). =)

This was always my favourite Emulation news site. I always came here first to see what was going on in the Emulation community. Nice to see you back JoseQ :)
