View Full Version : What do you all think?

This is strictly an attempt to get feedback to make my site better. Please give me suggestions.
here's the site:
3rd February 2003, 22:33
Decent site. Try giving some textures to the wireframes on the left.
Could also use some better computers.:p
3rd February 2003, 22:35
They're coming. Just takes a little bit to make the "build you own" page.
3rd February 2003, 22:49
looks good to me, love the colors :) that deal #2 sounds like the ticket :)
3rd February 2003, 22:50
Thanks, wanna buy one? :D Just kidding.
3rd February 2003, 23:11
Discount for winamp forum members? :)
Site is visually appealing.
How about moving the header orange/black slice a left above the "T" in "The mission" to give it a little more vertical alignment?
3rd February 2003, 23:12
3rd February 2003, 23:23
Nice site visually although I do disagree with some of the things I won't find in your computers.
3rd February 2003, 23:24
like what? this is the feedback i'm looking for
3rd February 2003, 23:26
Agh, I didn't see that you wouldn't use any intel chips. You have to use the Pentium IV. It is by far, the best processor available right now.
3rd February 2003, 23:31
like a modem. some of us will spend every penny we have just to get the perfect computer..yet cannot afford dsl. :(
3rd February 2003, 23:36
well maybe. i'll use the 2.5 to 3.06ghz ones. I'm trying to push foreward. I'm not totally convinced that Intel is on top, but thats not the point of this. please lets not make this a whats better thread.
3rd February 2003, 23:37
56k is so slow, I hate it, but some might not be able to afford cable/dsl. I understand.
3rd February 2003, 23:38
well specifically I disagree with the Zip Drive and the modem thingy. I do have broadband but I use my modem as a caller ID device...theres always a use for a modem. And true a CD does have more space, but sometimes a zip drive is just more convinient and quicker.
3rd February 2003, 23:41
but, cds are about $.10, zips are much more. Its a cost/space thing. Maybe i'll add a "if you want section" with those particular items.
3rd February 2003, 23:43
If I have not said so, this is my company. DigiWorx computers.
3rd February 2003, 23:45
Yeah, you shouldn't just not carry things, just leave it as an option. Use something else as the default. For modems, I seriously doubt someone would be mad at you for including it. It only takes 1 PCI slot and costs almost nothing.
3rd February 2003, 23:47
Perhaps you're right. The "if you want" section looks like a strong possibility.
4th February 2003, 01:20
Another thing, can anyone please give me the names of some really good parts suppliers? The one I'm currently with is not all what I thought it would be. mwave.com
4th February 2003, 01:23
EBay (http://www.ebay.com) will always work. Cheap prices too.
4th February 2003, 02:57
What about newegg? I need a place where i can order all of my parts from at a discount price. Ebay just doesn't seem right.
4th February 2003, 04:27
I like newegg.com googlegear.com and http://www.globalcomputer.com
4th February 2003, 04:32
i like it :)

not if you don't have a landline!
anybody want to buy a 56kbps modem?
4th February 2003, 07:50
that black curve by your navbar is too antialiased (thew curve is out too wide, it makes it look almost 2px thick), try running a sharpen filter on it. the "W" in digiworks should be moved right 1px, (and maybe the "works" turned black?). and you can't spell average, you have spelt it "averace" (or something, 2nd line of the text).

it's not a spelling error. the tails on the text have been cut off. so ps, gs, ys etc. won't work. i forgot to mention that.
4th February 2003, 09:35
that page was made by a "professional" company?! and they made a mistake like cutting off the bottom of the g...and you _PAID_ them?
4th February 2003, 13:12
I have jumped on them for the errors, the sites only 2 days old. Its partly my fault, i said to gator works, get it out ASAP.
5th February 2003, 03:06
I think Tiger Direct does bulk supplying, I've never ordered in bulk from there, but for individual products they are very reasonably priced and blazing fast...you can almost order the stuff and then wait at your front door for the delivery.
5th February 2003, 03:20
I'm going to check them out. Someone has to be better than mwave.

Festerhead did you get the email?

The deals look great. If you can get a good (dependable, economical) supplier I would try to add options (modem, P4, DVD, ect.). I personaly prefer AMD but I have a hard time recomending them to people here. There are no suppliers that sell them in our area and if someone needs their 'puter serviced around here it's a lot easier to get someone to look at it if they are familiar with the system. I have to order in the parts for my computers. And since I do all my own repair work it's no big deal for me, but when people come to me for advice on what to buy I tell them to stick with what is popular and most common. Unless they're really looking for performance.
5th February 2003, 20:44
Thanks for the advice moe. AMD has a hard road to plow. If I can find a supplier that has 56k modems, I'll start including them. But the modems have to be good quality. For now they'll be added to a seperate page for extra parts.
About the spelling and formatting errors: The site was made in a day to reserve the web adress and at least get something up there. Thore errors are going to be fixed soon.
I and my webmaster love the comments we're receiving on this forum. Please keep replying.:up:
5th February 2003, 20:56
OK, will do sean. I seriously would use eBay or uBid, though. You can get anything on there. You just have to make sure you have a backup in case if they don't have something or you don't get it.
5th February 2003, 20:58
The systems look good, a little on the expensive side, but im guessing the build quality would be better than average which makes it worthwhile.
Im glad you havent gone down the road most suppliers go down - using an el cheapo all in one board with the fastest cpu available to trick the buyer into thinking its better than machine x because it sounds faster than it really is.
Also good to see you're using 512mb of ram even in the lower spec system. :up:
One thing that does puzzle me though, is why you dont include XP home with the lower spec system (cheaper than 2k pro) and and an option of 2k pro or XP pro with the higer spec system.
5th February 2003, 21:11
Cheap parts are my number one enemy. You buy a PC, like you said, and the parts are cheap them it breaks un-repairably. Thats the whole reason I'm in the biz. Right there. Each computer is a custom job with human care placed into each and every single one. Not to mention a three day test to make sure the computer is working to specifications. You've caught this company at its near birth. I have to get a deal with Microsoft to get bulk copies of XP home and Pro. Any suggestions? How can I come out the winner? Not getting syphoned copy per copy from the big M.
5th February 2003, 21:14
256MB of PC266 DDR-SDRAM is the lowest I go on memory. Thats the lowest of the low. Once again, the pushing foreward aspect.

To elaborate more on my response:
Negotiations have failed.
According to the wife, "It will take a UN resolution for you to get another machine" :(
5th February 2003, 21:19
Thats alright, just an offer. It applies to all winamp members.
(ALL) Email me if you wish to know.
7th February 2003, 01:37
I also forgot to mention on the site about what the standard software actually was, that is also coming soon. Here it is.
Service Packs, no basic OS install, you're doomed if you do.
Dell did this to me, and thats why I am in business. please read the about us section.
Office XP (word, excel, publisher)
NAV 2002 or 2003
Lavasoft Ad-Aware 5.83/ 6.0
Roxio CD Creator 5 Platinum all updates
....and of course.....
Winamp 3.0 :)
7th February 2003, 04:57
I think it's better than mine. Kudos
7th February 2003, 22:42
I tried to click on your photo. Your site wouldn't load. Something wrong?
7th February 2003, 22:45
His site is here (http://www.morbid-inc.tk/) . Seems to have some bugs with it and it hasn't been finished. You have to sit through the intro.
7th February 2003, 22:51
Not bad, the intro needs to be a little more fluid.
10th February 2003, 04:03
Just to let you all know, the site is being re-tooled with all of your suggestions. My webmaster and I would like to thank all who posted replies and hope that they keep coming. Just to let some particular people know, we carry certain types of LCD monitors as well.
18th February 2003, 02:43
I am pleased to inform the Winamp general discussion community that I have FIRED my webmaster. Fuck yeah!!
18th February 2003, 10:17
graphically, a nice start.
on the plain advertising side: committed to excellence is kinda deja-vu.
