300 to go
Since April the 11th of this year when the site officially opened we are nearing the Million visitors (a few hundred away), to say the Dreamcast isnt a console supported commercially (with the odd exception) and also the fact that the Dreamcast scene already had 5 mainstream emulation/homebrew sites and any new site would face a massive uphill battle to get visitors to visit a new site, we have done well.[br][br]Originally started as a solo project of mine because of my frustration of the stagnancy of the Dreamcast scene and the lazyness of siteops to update their pages, i quickly found a site design off my friend James (webmaster of Xbox Rules.com), the design was from a site that never really got going so it was decided to use it for DCEmu UK.[br][br]Next part of my journey was to find the best host for this site, i contacted my friends Keith ( Emufanatics) and Passive (Emuhelp) and with thier help got in contact with Martin64 the admin of the Emulation64 Network, luckily for me he said yes to taking on a site that would need lots of space and bandwidth too.[br][br]Onto choosing a name for the site was next and there was so many that to choose from that i decided to keep the name short and sweet so the name DCEmu UK was born, although we would gladly love the Dreamcast.com .net domains .[br][br]So in March i started the task of finding every emulator for download and so began the massive task of finding every emulator released for the Dreamcast, in that month i told a couple of close friends about the project and Soully and LyonHrt came aboard to help me with this site and also to help with the as yet unseen v2 of our site.[br][br]Which leads me nicely to the day we opened and since then its been a great ride with high moments being the amazing 13,000 visitors in one day, the 5 slashdots, the amazing interviews, the hosting of Chui and forums, the joining together of the International Dreamcast scenes.[br][br]My thanks to all these people so far in helping this site, LyonHrt, Soully, Darksaviour69, Wacko, Captain Skyhawk, Martin 64, Keith, Passive, DCDayDreamer, Curt Grymala, Dr Zoidberg, Hawq, Metafox, Chui, Pablo, Talfi, Ron, Propellor, Christuserloeser, ace and many more.[br][br]Lets get to that 2nd Million asap
