Internet Office Weekly Report

Internet Office Weekly Report #5 - 18 April 2005

I apologise for the lack of reports on my behalf. This is disgraceful and I will attempt to not do so again.

I will be going on leave between Monday the 18th of April 2005 and Wednesday the 20th of April 2005. Do not expect a response to any emails until I return. I apologise for the short notice.

Things that may interest coders and designers as well as the general membership are a current thread discussing the EH Domain Revamp to come, as well as an offer looking for people to create a new template for the TC site and the EH site as well as components for the new TC uniform system. The details for that are located at this thread.


The new Internet Office Site has been created and it is located at the usual address of Features and content are currently being added so please be patient.

The EH Links Database has accordingly moved to The old address at redirects to the new location. A new service is being provided for users of the Emperor's Hammer! Free webhosting (for EH purposes) is being provided to people who want it! In the time period before I acquire a dedicated server, my hosting solution provides 20MB of space per person, with 200MB of bandwidth transfer allowance per month. PHP is installed on the server and you receive one MySQL database as well as one PostgreSQL database. To apply send a username, subdomain (on you would like, password and a short reason as to what you would like to use the hosting for to Lenvik. Free 10MB of email space (with POP3 and Webmail Interfaces) is also available.

Site of the Week

No Site of the Week; Submit something damnit.

I ask you, the membership of the Emperor's Hammer, to submit sites that you believe are worthy of a site of the week award. To qualify as site of the week, a site should look alright (doesn't need uber graphics to win though), have plenty of relevant information about the particular unit or function, and is updated regularly. Sites must be in the EH Site Database to qualify for Site of the Week.
