Internet Office News

Relatively big week for the IO this week! First, our biggest news: The Internet Office is finally proud to present after many delays, the trailer to the upcoming Project Hawkeye II: Uprising. The trailer, completely created digitally, is the product of hours of hard work by Leeson and Ender mBind. You can view the trailer at The trailer requires the DivX 5.02 codec, which you can download at Believe me, it's worth the small effort!

Our second big announcement is the completion of the brand new EH Counter Service, coded by Alex Foley. This service provides you with up to 5 counters for your website, which doesn't require any extra code other than a simple IMG tag. This is a useful service for everybody in the EH who runs an EH site. If you'd like to volunteer to make more counter samples, please feel free to e-mail the Internet Office.

Sites are still being created for Hawkeye II. Once we pass the point of having about 75% of the sites done, we will open up the Qualification Test to the public, and 2 weeks after that will begin the actual competition.

Leeson has found 3 new security patches for those people running Windows 2000 or XP, please check out the article on for details.

Some of you could not access the EH Images Archive this week because AbsoluteK moved domains, and now hosts it off The EHNet redirect ( has been updated to reflect this.
