Default Would like to create a blog for "Will it run on Windows 7"?

As some of you know, I have a pretty extensive collection of games installed on Vista x64. I'm up to 568 games installed at the moment. When the retail upgrade of Windows 7 hits I will be testing every single one of these games to see if it runs on Windows 7. I'll be using the in place install of Windows 7, so everything that's installed will transfer over. I know installing the games is part of the battle to get it running and some of what I've done for Vista x64 is hard to remember. Does anyone have a suggestion for a blog site for me to create this on? What would you like to see in that blog?

Blogspot is good... most blogs I see are from there.

It might be a somewhat boring blog though, as very few games have Win7 issues beyond Vista ones.

If you can get the games to list in correct order on Win7 let me know, alphabetical puts numbers before spaces, which means Doom 2 comes before Doom and similar things.

Make your own blog with a unique URL. I have been recently checking into it. Can get domains cheap, then get a hosting plan that supports wordpress...Not free, but will look much better than just using a free "blog" site...

You are probably right. Maybe I'll just scrap the idea.

It could be an all encompassing "issues with PC games" blog... you have so many, a blog with simple instructions on how to get these working on modern machines the best way possible could be great.

So many people encounter a problem and move on, never knowing an ini tweak or something could make the game so much better on modern systems.

Just as an FYI, please don't advertise the site here if you make one.

Thanks
