As those of you who frequent out forums will no doubt have noticed, ITXGamer has been acquired by LOSIAS Technologies. I was hoping we would have the transfer complete a week ago so the announcement would coincide with ITXGamer’s second birthday (Sept. 19 for those who are counting) but a few technical hurdles required some extra time to complete the switchover.
However, the move is complete and ITXGamer is now the newest addition to the LOSIAS family. You can read the official press release here, and you can read my thoughts about it below.
I started this blog two years ago with no sense of direction. It was simply a way for me to share my passion for ITX gaming computers. Being one of the very few sites dedicated to this rapidly growing segment of gaming systems, the site took off. The community grew at a fantastic pace as ITX gaming enthusiasts flocked to the only forum where they could freely indulge in their passion.
The growth of ITXGamer and the subsequent demands that were placed on my time managing such an active community proved to be more than I had planned on, and certainly more than I could handle by myself. I knew the site had strong potential to grow into something great, but I also knew it would take more than I could offer to get it done.
Fortunately through the forums, I was able to develop a relationship with the good folks over at Losias.net. I approached them about acquiring the ITXGamer property. I felt it would be a great addition to their community of small form factor modders and enthusiasts. It would add a new dynamic to the Losias brand and add the final piece to make Losias.net the most complete resource on the internet for SFF enthusiasts.
Things went pretty quick from there.
I want to thank all of you who helped build ITXGamer into the community that it is today. Your passion and enthusiasm for these systems has spread and encouraged others to discover the advantages (and challenges) of building in this form factor.
It is my hope that all of you will embrace the move to Losias and continue to communicate, share and develop ideas that will push the design of SFF systems to a new level. The Losias team has the knowledge and expertise to continue growing this community and take it to a level far beyond what I could have managed by myself.
There are more changes coming in the near future. I’m excited to see the full integration of the ITXGamer and Losias brands. The complement each other perfectly and together will truly be something great.
I intend to continue sharing my enthusiasm for ITX gaming systems. I’ll remain as active as I can on the forums and contribute as many new articles as I can. With the operations of ITXGamer now falling to the staff at Losias, I’ll have more time to do what I love, build ITX gaming systems and share my discoveries with you.
Once again, thank you for all your support.
