Internet Office News

For anyone who has not yet noticed, EHNet version 3.0 is here! With many thanks due to Keldorn, Kweeky and most of all Turtle, we now have the Internet Office site back up and fully functional. This design is completely hand-coded by Turtle himself (as well as me a small bit), so it is very versatile and adaptable to whatever our needs may become.

One very cool feature is the unified login between EHNet and MinosNIC. Now, for almost all IO sites which require a login, you will be able to use one username and password for your convenience. Another thing which you will notice is the ratings feature for Sites of the Week. This helps me when choosing people to receive CoEs. In order to be qualified (pending the IO's decision) for a CoE, you should have gotten 3 different SOTWs with rating 4 or above, OR created one major EH website.

Pending TO approval, the EH Holonet Awards will begin next week. This is a chance for you to nominate the best sites in the EH for awards. Details will be available at

We've got some new projects in the works already, including an EH Search Engine and Links Database. Currently, the Banner Exchange and Greeting Card Center are currently down, but we are working on getting them back up. Also, plot development for Project Hawkeye II will resume shortly.

As you can see, the IO report design is slightly different from the past ones. This is iin honor of being report #40. The last redesign was at #20, and the next will be hopefully at #60. Hope you like this one.

MinosNIC News from Turtle:

- MinosNIC now serves 86 URL redirects and 30 web hosting accounts.
Remember, free PHP and MySQL-enabled hosting is offered for all Emperor's
Hammer related web sites. MinosNIC hosting is a great alternative to banner
hosting services such as GeoCities and Tripod.

- I did a bunch of work on the EHNet logins system this week, making the
system much less prone to errors, and much more suitable for use by other
Emperor's Hammer web sites. If you have a major EH web site that you'd be
interested in linking into the EHNet logins system, contact AD Turtle Jerrar

Emperor's Hammer: Site of the Week

This week's SOTW is Wing II at The Wing II site, created by LCM Tim (, receives a rating of 5 stars for great work with ASP!
