New novel – Right Ascension

by on Jul.28, 2001, under Books

David Derrico writes “Hello all…

I would like to encourage anyone looking for something interesting to read to head over to www.rightascension.com. Set in the year 3040, Right Ascension examines mankind’s place in the universe, how we ascended to that lofty position, and the horrifying price of that ascension. If you’re looking for a thought-provoking yet action-packed novel, please take a look. Excerpts, including Chapter 1, are posted on the site, and the full novel is available in both eBook and paperback formats.

Thanks for your time…

David” Pick up the paperback at Amazon.com.

by on Jul.27, 2001, under Movies

Ahead of its time in 1982, it now looks dated, but Tron still remains the penultimate cyberspace movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Steven Lisberger, the film’s director and co-writer, is working on a third draft for Tron 2.0, and there are plans for a new PC/Xbox game (due in 2003) and a DVD full of goodies (due Jan 15th, 2002).

Storm stuff

by on Jul.26, 2001, under General News

Well, it’s been a bit of a slow week. Obviously, I’m not posting just anything to the site – only some of the major news items I’m catching elsewhere. Very little is being submitted, and my time is more limited now. So I need your help…

PLEASE, submit news items that you think are worthy. Post comments. Tell your friends about the site (traffic is important). Buy stuff from Amazon.com via the links on the left. It’s getting to the point that I have to question whether it is worth the energy or not. Trust me, if the load gets to be too much, I’ll deputize some of you as authors/moderators…

I do have some plans for the site. I never finished the graphics style I wanted, but I’m now thinking of migrating to PHP-Nuke instead of Slashcode 2.X, and that would allow for “themes” and easier customization. This would probably happen with a server replacement (I’ve got a new server, but I’m questioning its stability right now), but I have to figure out how much of a mess it will be to convert.
