off, I'd like to extend a welcome to a new member of the IO team,
IOA/CP Thorin Oakenshield! Since AD Turtle is on a 9-month extended
leave, CP Thorin will be taking his place and hopefully will bring
some valuable ideas to the IO. As of now, I will not accept anymore
IOAs for quite a while (unless a current one starts slacking off
:P). Thorin is CEO of the Imperial Broadcasting Company in the
CD, and hopefully he will assist us in making the EH Radio an
official COMM-IO project as was originally intended.
Site Redesign is progressing; we have one current design from
VA Keldorn, and another one coming soon from Alex Foley. AD Leeson
will be deciding on a final design in conjunction with me, and
then we will begin to populate it.
SA Astatine's new ban on creation of newsletters, the Auroran
News Network, which many people submitted articles for and was
slated to be revived soon, will not. Instead, articles that were
submitted to us will be passed on to SA Astatine as submissions
for the EH Newsletter on the author's behalf.
Internet Office is looking into the possibility of creating an
EH Wargame simulation game. Nothing is certain yet and it may

also been looking into some updates for Sabacc Online. I'm currently
doing some research as to the feasibility of a multiplayer system.
While I once had the idea, it seemed very impractical in terms
of implementation. But now I think I've thought of another possible
approach. If anyone knows if it's possible to create a server
program in PHP for a server/client game system setup, with the
server programmed to listen to sockets for incoming connections,
please let me know.
CyberGuy and Jam3z, while (still) waiting for required materials
for the Shadow Academy site, have begun discussing creating a
project similar to Alex Foley's Squadfirst project. They would
like to create a system that will provide officers with a default
PHP template for their own office, including news and reports,
etc. Hopefully this will become a service easily available with
