Well, lots of staff changes this week! VA Leeson is the new CA:IO, and please welcome to the IO staff the new IOAs, MAJ Dae Cam and MAJ CrazyR2, as well as a "unofficial" IOA, CM Ayudanter de la Clars. Hopefully, the new staff will only help the Internet Office continue to grow and prosper.

VA Leeson has already begun work on a multiplayer version of Sabacc using Flash. I've seen his front-end which is quite impressive, and he'll be using some of my code to program the backend. Hopefully, a beta version should be ready by next week! In case you're wondering, CD and BHG support are included in MP Sabacc.

Alex Foley should be returning from leave in a few days, once he returns we will prepare to release a new service, "EH Counters Service." Look for it coming soon to an IO Report near you!

Hawkeye II information will be sent out to the new staff members and hopefully we'll be able to get everything done. Progress has already begun to pick up; COL Mairin Astoris finished work on the fictionalization part of the plot, which will be incorporated into the missions. RA Ender mBind is working on a 3D model required for the Hawkeye II Trailer.

I'm going to be on leave for the following days: September 6-8, 15-16, 20-22, 28-29 for Jewish holiday observances. During that time, VA Leeson will be in charge.

Auroran News Network: get your submissions in! Deadline is September 8th, mail to and!
