@NeuralStunner: Oh, I didn't realize you were talking about the credits page on the website. I'm not sure how well up-to-date it'll be until the final project is out, unless Nostromo is good about keeping up with new members that come along (like mappers eventually).

So far, I've kept up-to-date with any changes or requests that have been made.

I've been rather busy lately. A friend of mine and I have started doing online CD sales. Here's a link to our storefront, if anyone is interested. We're selling mostly headbanger stuff right now. (yes, I know ...shameless plug).

Dr Nostromos Stuff

....so I haven't been very active on the forums lately. However, I do drop by everyday to stay caught up so if there's any changes needed on the website, just let me know.

Finally, I've got an idea for a new Hacx website layout that I actually like. Since it's a site for game, I've focused more on just making it cool, than making a brilliant design. ;)

I'm still thinking how to show the content. Your comments are most welcome :)

That's quite fantastic, if I may say so! Simple, but effective. :)

I think it's great. White-on-dark is a nice scheme.

Though I think a green theme (like Nostromo's Hacx page) might look a bit more distinctive than red (a popular color for DooM projects, which this ain't ;) ).

Sweet!

I'll post a link to it from the Hacx page for News and Updates.

Wait, it's not ready yet :)

Plus I'm sure that hosting it on dropbox won't work as a long term solution :P

Heh, heh, heh.

Actually it could, come to think of it. I have drop box. We could share a folder. You can make the pages, throw them in the drop box and I'll publish them.

In fact, I could put the whole Hacx website in the dropbox and you can update any pages you like. Wouldn't bother me any ...I rarely do any updates on it.

That's a great idea. I'll try to finish the CSS today and bring in all the content from the current site. I'll bring the Hacx 2 history page to the new layout and, of course, have the link to your page/doom projects intact. :) Actually I just share the Hacx 2.0 project dropbox folder and just have an folder for the site inside.

We might have more and more updates since I think the project slowly gains momentum.

Nice design. I like it.

If you need webspace for it, drop me note, i have a webserver with four domains, and could create an subdomain easily.

Didn't manage to get it all done today, but I've finished the site code-wise more or less, I'm filling it up with content. :) Should be less tedious to update now too (it's still html based)

Good news with the webspace, I'm now not sure where to host it now :) It's either you or Nostromo.

Well I already have an established site for Hacx and it's been there for over 10 years so we might as well keep it in place. I have 15 gigs of space on my account so we're not going to have a limitation problem.

I just got your E-mail. I'll be shared here momentarily.

My Dropbox is a paid account, so that's not a limitation either. Are you going to get maxed on yours?

Yeah, I think it will be the best solution. :)

No worries about dropbox too, I'm using only 10% of my space.

I just got a message from DropBox that they've doubled my storage space up to 109 GB. I don't know why but I know I'll never use that much remote storage in a lifetime.

On another note...

I've been rather busy lately so I haven't had a chance to transfer over the website to a DropBox folder. I'll do it as soon as I've had a chance to weed out all the orphan files ...some of which have been accumulating for 10+ years.
