AGAIN, the site went down for over 24 hours yesterday, because of bandwidth. But this time, it wasn't my fault!! I requested more from my host 3 days before the site ran out of it. However, since most of the staff over there is on vacations, there are delays in communication. It was finally taken care of this morning.
On a side note, I'll NOT let the site down until the first of the next month, unless there's a day or two only left to the month.
I'm finally back to school, so expect that to slow me down a bit. Also, my computer still isn't fully operational, so I'm a bit stuck about e-mails. Sorry about that. I hope to have this issue resolved this week...
I'm current having some nasty computer problems... My main computer being out of commision, I'm running on my backup machine. Since almost all of my files are on the other computer, I cannot make updates to any sections of the website unless it is really important. The same applies to e-mail: I'll not answer any of them until I get this resolved. I expect to have my main computer back either tomorrow (Tuesday) or on Wedesnday. Thank you for your comprehension.
After 5 months of being offline, the Oekaki board is now back on track! While it took longer than it was initially expected, the new system has a lot more features, and is much more secure. For the full details, please check the announcements over there.
Now that this is out of the way, I'll be able to resume the work on the other sections, to finally complete anew the site. More on this later!
I finally came back today, and I'll be using the next couple of days to catch-up on news and e-mails. Please allow me some time to get back on track, and thank you for your understanding.
I'll be away for the next three days as I'm going to vacations. Since I'm not bringing my computer with me, I'll most probably have no way to get online. I should be back by Thursday evening, but I might get online only on Friday.
I'll answer to e-mails and such after I come back. Later!
Finally! The coding of the new system took longer than expecting, and isn't quite complete, but the FanArt section is now stable enough to support frequent updates. I've added several new pictures there, this including new artists. Among the new stuff, I've put the art I've got in celebration to the 100,000 hits mark we hit not too long ago. You can quickly see which pictures are new, as they have the mention NEW: just before their titles.
From now on, updates to that sections should be done more frequently, as I can update at anytime easily. Feel free to submit new pictures!
I thought I would put a couple of news on. For those who might be wondering, most of my time lately went on the creation of the new Oekaki board and on some personal projects. Now, here are the latest, major happenings for the Blue Bomber.
Release dates fun
As usual, the release dates have been updated with delays from Capcom. Mega Man X5 PC, among other titles, was supposed to come out in July but was delayed to the August 7.
To the opposite of what everyone believed, there indeed was a Rockman anime made several years ago. While it was made in 1993 and 1994, it was never aired anywhere. There were 3 episodes of 30 minutes each made.
Now, for the 15th Anniversary of Rockman in Japan, Capcom Japan is making a limited DVD release of this anime. Starting September 20, people in Japan will be able to get the disk either from E-Capcom (Capcom of Japan online store), or at the various Tokyo Game Shows.
You can download a preview movie of the anime on this page, as well as see a few pictures and a description (note: Japanese page).
Mega Man T-Shirts!
Now is the time to show Capcom they can sell Mega Man merchandise in North America! You can get an XL-sized shirt with Mega Man X and Zero from this page on Capcom's site.
NO, it's not dead! Please stop asking. :-P
The site was offline for several hours today, but it wasn't my fault!! A major connection link died on the side of my webhost, cutting all access off the website. As you can see, it's now back online, and we shouldn't have any more problems caused by that. On a side note, I shouldn't have any more problems with bandwidth either, but the end of months are always sensible areas.
