New additions to website

I’ve been a busy lil web master for the past couple days… got a few things to show ya and tell ya about.

The biggest addition to the site is an event calendar, which you’ll notice to the right. You can click on any date to see what event is planned for whatever day. Day’s that have events scheduled show up in bold green. Right now anyone can view events, but only those with the correct username and password can add/edit/delete events, and at the moment the only people that have that capability are those in the Hardfought DAoC guild. If ya happen to play DAoC and make it to this site, check the calendar, you may discover some gaming events we have planned online.

Also new to the site is a ‘Picture of the Day’, which you’ll find underneath the site hit counter to the left. Now, you know me… it’s not very likely I’ll change that picture each and every day :-P I do plan to change it on a regular basis though. Today’s picture is a screenshot of my character ‘Kaytuu’ in-game, brandishing a newly-acquired Golden Alloy Great Sword. It looks as bad-ass as it’s in-game stats :-) I gave this sword to Geat in return for some ah… *ahem* shall we say ‘special favors’ he’s done for me in the past.

Bah! Get your mind OUT of the gutter! :-P

Click on the pic o’ the day to see it full-size. If any of you have a picture to submit, by all means feel free to do so, my email address is listed up at the top right of the page. Oh yeah… new voting poll is up, finally! A lot of people voted on the last one… it seems that out of 222 total votes, 53% of you would like to have ‘a cheap hooker and some booze’ more than anything else for Christmas. Heh ;-) I voted for Mrs. Claus myself… ah well. Anyways… go vote!!

One last thing – I know the main page loads slow. This is because of the DAoC server monitor. It grabs the data from another server and there’s varying degree’s of latency between my site and the one I grab the monitor script from. I’m looking into changing the monitor to something I can run locally here. I’ll keep ya posted.

See ya online gang.
