For those of you who are still in the dark or living in caves, as of Sunday, May 4, 2003, got a brand new look. 2003 is the culmination of an intensive project the IO has been working on for over 2 months. Everyone involved was quite well rewarded: Keldorn, who did the graphics and the splash image got an Imperial Cross (IC). Leeson, who organized the project and did the HTMLization and Flash, became the first Command Attaché to receive the rank of Fleet Admiral. Xander Drax, who modified Keldorn's original design and splash image, received a Gold Star. Drako, who did the navigational imagemap received a Silver Star, and Alex Foley who did the quick-access buttons received a Bronze Star. I also received the rank of High Admiral, and my thanks to GA Ronin for that and for awarding the rest of the awards to my excellent staff.

Not waiting much after that, Xander Drax has already begun working on a new design for EHNet. The design is much more fitting for the site of an "Internet Office" and though it will not prominently feature Natalie Portman's midriff, we plan to stick in a few surprise easter eggs in there :)

FA Leeson is currently working on an IO-brand Flash radio player designed for WEHR. This will allow you to listen to WEHR from any computer without Winamp or any other program other than a browser with Flash support.

We are currently investingating other areas of expansion. If you have any ideas for projects for the Internet Office, please contact me.

I'd like to remind EH webmasters: If you are interested in obtaining a client for the EHNet Login System (ELS), please contact me. The ELS is a very powerful system that will allow most people in the EH (as of now, 570 handles are registered) to use your site. It's highly flexible and adaptable to your needs, and it comes with instructions, but I will only provide client logins to experienced PHP programmers who have shown they can handle it well.
