Internet Office Weekly Report

Internet Office Weekly Report #7 - 22 May 2005

I'd like to congratulate the latest round of CO award winners. Of note are Sarin's elevation to Executive Officer (and promotion to Sector Admiral) as well as Cyric's promotion to Sector Admiral and receipt of the Medal of Honour. Congratulations also goes to OPS Pickled Yoda who has been promoted to Sub-Lieute...err....Admiral. :P


Nothing new this week as far as the Internet Office is concerned unfortunately as my midcourse exams start tommorow and I've been hard at work studying. They'll be over after the end of this coming week, so expect the Holonet Awards nominations to begin shortly afterwards.

Site of the Week

This week, the Site of the Week award goes to:

Emperor's Hammer Battle Boards on GysNet
Webmaster: Captain Gyssler

I ask you, the membership of the Emperor's Hammer, to submit sites that you believe are worthy of a site of the week award. To qualify as site of the week, a site should look alright (doesn't need uber graphics to win though), have plenty of relevant information about the particular unit or function, and is updated regularly. Sites must be in the EH Site Database to qualify for Site of the Week.

Internet Office Projects

Internet Office Tasks List 2005

  • Image Archive: The Image Archive will be re-released in the coming months.
  • HoloNet awards: The categories for this are drafted, and the nominations will begin in early June.
  • Open sourcing IO projects: Most future Internet Office projects will be open source, ie. the source code will be available to download (eg. SquadFirst+ 2.0.5).
  • More member-orientated projects: EHNet Hosting services available. I shall be reviewing and making suggestions regarding the IO IWATS courses to Stuart and his related PROFs.
  • Expansion and addition on projects that help members become more skilled about web design such as the Code Archive: A new EH Content Management System to be released at a later date will be modular, allowing PHP enthusiasts to write extra or updated functions for this CMS and upload them to a repositry of CMS mods. Interested users will be able to download these and copy the file in and add the addition using the control panel of the CMS. Also in the new CMS will be a better install interface.
  • Updating of SquadFirst code to take into account the new TIE Corps site URL: A new revision of SquadFirst (2.0.5) has been released, updating the links and fixing a JS bug in the EH Classic Scenes theme.
  • Coordinate with Communication and Executive Offices in porting ELS system to ASP: Task suspended indefinetly.
