- sorry for being kinda late on the report, but due to scheduling
and computer problems, I wasn't able to access my computer on
Friday and Saturday. Anyhow, LOTS OF NEWS this week!
with Project Hawkeye II, the design document has been completed!
That means we now have the entire plotline and what all the missions
will involve. After a few meetings with the Project Hawkeye staff,
we will begin web development. This means I will be needing VOLUNTEERS
for web and/or graphics work on Project Hawkeye II: Uprising.
If you are interested in helping out, you must be CMDR+ (or equivalent)
and by helping out you forfeit your chance to be accepted into
the Hawkeye Agency. Of course, if you do good work, I will be
sure to reward you. People who wish to work on web stuff: you
must have good HTML skills, good English grammar and good creativity.
If you are interested, please e-mail me (email@example.com)
with a sample web page or URL that you've done, as well as a piece
of fiction (please make it a short one). For graphics, all you
need to do is send me a sample graphic you've done - preferably
3D. Please note that I will only accept the best and most trustworthy
to work on the development team - but if I do not accept you,
do not be disheartened! Within two weeks probably I will have
the parts ready for voice auditions for Project Hawkeye. Keep
your eyes open!
people couldn't access MinosNIC this week - that's because the
Minos server was upgraded. The register_globals option in PHP
is now set to OFF. For the non-PHP developers on Minos, this means
nothing. However, for you PHPers out there, that means instead
of just using the standard names of variables in the headers,
you must use the appropriate superarray. You can read more
about this new behavior here.
The reason for this upgrade, although inconvenient, is to increase
security and data integrity. The link above provides some workarounds
if your code is already too tightly interwoven with the old behavior.
PHP IWATS course, written by RA Mutilator, has been completed
(a while ago) and our new TO should have it available to the public
very soon. The link for it will be included at the bottom of the
IO Report as soon as it is released.
Alex Foley returns from leave today, while IOA Turtle is on leave
until the 29th.
Ender mBind has begun work on the development of actual TIE/XvT/XWA
battles regarding Project Hawkeye I. Hopefully, he will
continue to stick with us after Hawkeye II which promises to have
an even more exciting set of missions that its predecessor.
trying to eliminate the KLEZ worm, if anyone receives a virus,
please copy and paste the headers (if you are unsure how to view
them, look in the help of your mail client) in an e-mail to me.
I will do my best to track down the source and have them clean
up their machine. If anyone recogizes the partial hostmask quirigua.isplogic.net,
please inform that person immediately that they have been infected
with a virus (I myself have been receiving virii from them) and
they should clear it up right away.
those of you who may not yet know, the EH
Greeting Cards Center is back up with 92 images available.
Make use of it!
the results you've all been waiting for - the EH Holonet Awards!
You can view a full
list of the results here, but in this report I will post only
the first-place winners (who are CCed on the IO report) because
everyone who's made it this far certainly deserves public recognition.
Each category contains the site name and link, and the creator.
Big congratulations go to Koral of the BHG and Nyssa of the DIR
for being the only ones to win multiple first-place awards! For
all winners and runners-up, you can see the
medals table here. And here are the winners:
congratulations to all the winners! I will be looking through
the list of winners and runners-up to see if any are distinguished
enough to receive CoEs. Medals will hopefully be in the mail tonight
that concludes the longest IO report ever! :-)
