Update

I am out of town for a few days. I am still working on 4.7 I have a update downloaded, but I am having issues with MySQL access. Anyway, I am out for a couple of days. I will put in 4.7 in a test database then move it over to this site.

Get your Gameboy Cufflinks!

Nintendo Gameboy Cufflinks: Why didn't you think of these?Nintendo Gameboy Cufflinks: Why didn't you think of these?I know what you're thinking...How did I possibly live without these babies for so long? Well, the wait is over. Get your Gameboy Color Color Cufflinks from Ahchay's Etsy Shop today. However, I might warn you: These will, in all probability, seriously crimp your suave 007 style. Unfortunately, they aren't playable. Well, perhaps that's not so unfortunate.

My Status

Bill recently posted about his status, so I thought I'd do the same. Cecil and I have been working on the site, trying to work out the few remaining bugs and get things up to snuff on a systems-level. Drupal just released the official 4.7, and Cecil is working on updating the site to the new specs. Hopefully, this update will fix the annoying double log in nonsense.

Meanwhile, this is my last week of school, so I will soon have plenty of free time to work on everyone's ideas for improving the look of the site. What I want to do first is really bear down and make sure I thoroughly understand the CSS and PHPTEMPLATE system. I'm tired of tinkering with it; I want to understand it. Afterwards, I intend to work on some new templates (and I'll be passing on requests for graphics and such as I find a need for them) to the team. When I've got all these finalized, perhaps we can select the very best one for the default (but, heck, if the others are good, we could always leave them available as options).

My Latest Status

OK, not to get into it, but I spent the past three days in the hospital with my daughter and wife, so missed valuable "work" time before our vacation, which we leave for on Thursday (the 4th) and return from late Friday (the 12th). I wish to maximize my contribution and time, so if there's anything outstanding that needs doing, please let me know. As for my opinion about anything, unfortunately I just have to say use your best judgement and I'll abide by whatever decisions are made in my absence. I appreciate the thoughts though about my opinion on things, but I don't want to hold anything up.

Testing Image and Img Assist Module

Simon the Sorcerer: Pits of Rondor.Simon the Sorcerer: Pits of Rondor.All right...I'm just testing this out. Looks like there are some major CSS problems here. Also--apparently the system only accepts JPGs for now. I couldn't get bmps or pngs to work...Checking into it. Also, the inline bit isn't working...text here...Okay...so maybe now it works? This is pretty strange.

Wondering if I should be doing someting.

I have checked in a couple of times and it seems there is little happening here as the updates to the software are going on. Is there someting I can help out on Matt, or shall we wait for you to finish the upgrade?

We've been HACKED AGAIN!!!!

Fuck, we've been hacked by those asshole hackers again! If anyone knows how to stop this from happening, I'm all ears or just do it! www.armchairaracade.com keeps getting hacked! Even AFTER we changed everything! This does not bode well. I'm going to point away from the gateway page permanently. No wonder it's a ghost town on there.

The FAQ has been created. I also added two new content items.

I created the starter FAQ text. Modify/add/delete away!

I also added a "Links" page and a "Merchandise and Special Offers" page. I'll try to get working on them soon.

I also added some "forum rules" in the discussion forums. Again, just to get something decent in there to start us out.

Testing and Site Work

I noticed that there has been a user created for testing that does not have admin rights. Could whoever created this account please share the password. That way we can look over the access control issues with a user level account with out having to create one for each of us.

Thanks

General Comments - ALL Please Read and Comment on Each of the 11 Points as Applicable

Please, let's all discuss these and act on them where appropriate, or disagree or offer a different suggestion, as appropriate.

1 - I like "The Gurus of Gaming" that shows up after Armchair Arcade on top of browser windows. Good job thinking of that. The only criticism I can possibly make against the top logo banner as it is now with the logo and the arcade controls image is that it's perhaps a bit too long from top to bottom, but I'm not sure if that's adjustable. I'd like to see it about 15% shorter top-down, as right now it takes up a bit too much real estate for optimal reading purposes in my opinion.
