Introduction
Over one and a half years after we launched our old layout in January 2002, we decided it was time to give our site a facelift and, while we were at it, add a few new features as well. After careful consideration and analysis of our statistics, we decided to focus on design and future-oriented techniques rather than backward compatibility.

The result is that the site has been optimised for Internet Explorer 6.x, Netscape 7.x and Opera 7.x at 1024x768px resolution.

Less than 2% use older browsers, and for those who do, we highly recommend that you upgrade your browser to either of the afore-mentioned browsers. As a curiosity -- in May, we had 35 pageloads from a Lynx browser, 1.1% using some distribution of Linux and interestingly enough, 0.5% on Windows 95.

New Features
If you take a look at the frontpage, you’ll see there are two new categories, namely “User submitted articles” and “User submitted news”, where you can now add your own news as well as articles, reviews, or tips. Adding news or articles is very simple – all you have to do is to click “Submit news” or “Submit article”, complete the simple forms and submit. Your submission will then be checked by our staff and published, and we invite all of you to use this feature. The more readers who submit news, the more this site becomes exactly like you want it.

Site User Section
As a sitemember, you'll get access to a lot of features, like your own page on DWPG.Com where you can write about your self, what you do, upload pictures of yourself and your computer if you whish.

You can also upload articles and get them published, get our newsletter featuring site news, articles, reviews, latest press releases and more. And of course, we're constantly working on improving our member section with new features and offers, so there's really no reason why you shouldn't sign up.

New Forums
As many of you know, we have been affiliated with AOA forums for the last year. But as DWPG.Com and AOA are two independent sites, we both have plans for the future, and we have come to the conclusion that it will be difficult to pursue these plans and still be closely affiliated. Because of this, we have also launched a new forum dedicated for the DWPG.Com site, and we really recommend that you sign up and join the discussions now.

Find Best Prices On Hardware, Software and Gaming Products
We know from our own experience how hard it can be to find the best prices and check for availability on computer hardware, software, games and so on. Because of this, we have joined forces with PriceGrabber to give you a fast and easy way to find the lowest prices on the products you want.

The tabs on the top of the site, right above the site logo will take you directly to the search engine that’s custom made for DWPG.Com. We love it, and we hope you’ll find this feature very useful when looking for the best prices on any given product.

More Content
Naturally, it has been relatively quiet on DWPG.Com content wise for a while due to the fact that we’ve been very busy with the new design and features. Now that everything is up and running, you can expect a lot of new content -- we’ll be reviewing the MSI NEO-LSR Canterwood motherboard, DFI's Lan Party KT400A motherboard, the Shuttle SN45G Small Form Factor barebone system, Zippy's Electron Luminesence Keyboard, Asetek's WaterChill, DangerDen's Maze 4, a series of computer audio tutorials as well as a huge 5.1 surround high-end computer speaker roundup where we take a look at no less than 5 top of the line models from 5 different manufacturers to mention a few things.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions about the new site design or new features, please leave your comments in the forums.
