News on more PC games
Site news, by Dr. Cossack on 26 April 2009 at 22:02

This latest update to the list of PC games adds two new titles to the list: the arcade games Mega Man: The Power Battle and Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters! Both games are available on GameTap, as part of their members-only service. They are rendered through emulation (under license and fully legal), accessed directly from your web browser. I tried them personally, and the end result is enjoyable. Please note, however, that this removes the two-player option: you can't be assisted in your fights by a friend!

With the increading size of this page, I've added a quick navigation tool at the top. You can now see a full games list pointing directly to the related information.

600,000 hits... kind of
Site news, by Dr. Cossack on 19 April 2009 at 20:43

Sometime during last weekend, the hit counter reached the 600,000 visitors mark. This might seem impressive... but it's not accurate anymore. The site already passed the million mark quite some time ago!

With the rise of efficient search engines such as Google, more and more people visit a website without ever viewing it's front page. The end effect is that displaying a hit counter on what is meant to be the front page no longer tracks accurately the visitors. I now rely on the server stats a lot more to get the data I want.

As a result of this, I'm now retiring the counter from this page, and this will probably be the last post about it!

Obviously, yesterday's post about a "new Message board update" was merely a front to announce this year's April's Fools Day. Those who want to know the full details can check the report on the message board!

The message board's software has been updated to take care of a few issue. I urge all current members to login and make sure that everything looks properly on their end. Otherwise, drop me a note about it!
