http://www.RichardDawson.co.uk – Ideas for the next version?

I’m working out what to include in the next version of www.RichardDawson.co.uk
I need a new design for it as well.

Things I can think of that I want to keep/ include/ do with the next version.

– Twitter feed
– Media Player (keep it playing, whilst navigating my site, rather than have to start again playing something)
– More easier interaction with you the readers & listeners. ie. live chat box
– Cleaner, lighter colors and a more sleek layout.
– Proper page for the downloads, rather than just the browser showing the directory from the server.

That’s all I can think of for just ten minutes brainstorming. I may come up with some other things that I want to do as time progresses.

Regarding the design, I have been looking for inspiration, and have come up with the following to show the style I like.

I would like to get some detailed icons and graphics to add that little extra somethings.

I am testing a way of integrating Facebook with my site.

I’m trying to get Facebook integrated with my site, so that people who have a facebook account can post on my site using their Facebook account details.

This is what I’m trying to use:

It involves a bit of configuration / coding to get it working

Facebook related stuff may come and go as I try to get it working.

I will post again once I know the outcome of this.

Dedicated Music Computer Mod Project

I’m always listening to internet radio or music from my computer’s hdd.
I never listen to anything else, so my hi-fi is 99% useless (except for the on timer to play a cd to wake me up)

I decided to build a small dedicated music computer, that can be controlled using only a character display and some switches in the front of the case. No monitor is going to be used with this.
