Interview section online

July 30, 2004 by ST Graveyard

Hello everybody,

Even though the sun has been shining the past days and it is pretty hard to sit in front of a screen, it still is with great pleasure that we announce this new update. As you might have noticed, another button at the left side is now clickable! Yes, the interview section is up and running. At the moment there isn't that much in there, but keep on checking the site in the days to come for more interesting conversations with ST celebs!

Also, some of you might have noticed that the site has gotten a little cosmetic change. The width is now fixxxed. So everybody with a res higher than 1024*768 will be seeing the template borders. It might feel a bit weird, but give it a chance. Now everybody can witness the site alignment as it should be!

Enjoy it all! And make sure to let us know what you think at the Forum. Looking forward to reading you comments!

Cheers...

Random review

Based on a french comic, this is a simple arcade - strategy game set in the american civil war. Take the lead of the yankees or of the confederates and wipe out your enemy's army, but beware of the indians and keep an eye on the mexican bandits down south...

Did you know?

Did you know that there are some love messages in the TOS ROMs of the ST? In fact you can find the strings "Dave StaUgas loves Bea Hablig" and "JIM LOVES JENEANE" in all TOS ROMs with version number 1.xx and 2.0x!
