Hooray, the site seems to be working again. Today sees the release of the Collection facilities. You can now use a tool I have created
to add your entire collection of games instantly to Everygamegoing. After you've done this, you can't actually do anything apart from see them - but
in time you'll be able to sell them through the site (if you so desire). Actually, just being able to see them is pretty useful too - I'm constantly
forgetting what items I've got and what items I'm still looking for!
Sadly, the site has been down for most of the day, not due to my poor coding (The very idea!) but due to problems with 123-reg, who
host it! The site came back on-line at 9:00pm having been a WSOD (White Screen Of Death) since about 12:00pm but there still seems to be
a problem in relation to the database connection, meaning all registration and log-in functionality is malfunctioning.
You can however, still access all of the information on the site itself by clicking the Machines
Covered link, finding the machine of interest and then searching for the desired game with CTRL-F...!
Hopefully they will fix up the rest of the problems soon, as there are a ton of new functionalities I'm eager to unveil today...
And so the development continues...
I have written a short article on how Everygamegoing came to be.

I will (soon) create some better introductory pages for the website. It is an upgrade to the framework I originally created to run Dragon 32 Universe and it does keep track of a great many things that are not immediately exposed
to visitors. One of the features I think is useful to you all though is What's New so I have now altered the site to have both the Site Releases page and a new page and a list of what's been recently added.
First release of the magazine sections of the website. Over the years I have been involved with many magazine archive websites and have transferred thousands of articles to html. All of these are available now and the items on the website now link directly to the reviews which appeared in the mainstream press at the time of release. This update brings a whole new level of information to the Everygamegoing website. For example, here is a review of Exile which appeared in Electron User magazine.
There will be internal links within some of these reviews which do not work (as they were prepared for other websites). For the time being, I have left these in the articles whilst I figure out an elegant way of dealing with these.
Belated release. This release updates around 50% of the Nintendo (US Version) games with screenshots, as well as adds the entire North American Gameboy catalogue, all the Psytronik Commodore 64 releases and the Shop framework (although currently no items are available to buy).
You can now register for an account (if you want one) - but there aren't any additional features yet available.
We've just pushed out a whole host of new features, including a feature which documents all the items we've added since the previous release,
and the long-awaited Instant eBay Description feature - that I'm already using myself to sell items on eBay.
Please note that you cannot yet Register or Log In. But soon you will be able to...!
Looking for the eBay description creator? It's not available yet - come back on Saturday!!! ;-)

The final "easy search" functionality is now live. You can now search by your favourite machine, although I still find
it easier to view the machines via one big html page.
