Monday 1-Dec-97 At last, an update!! A few additions to show we are still alive, to be followed by more updates over the coming week or two, so watch this space.
We have a preview of the January 1988 issue. An interview with Eric Schwartz as well as updated information on the contents and back issues pages.
Monday 20-Oct-97 Clearly something's wrong for CU Online to be frozen in time for a month. The 'wrong' thing is that I'm leaving the magazine and accordingly it's been a nightmare sorting things out. You can read the FAQ at my home page. This also means that CU is looking for fresh blood to fill the gap in the ranks and the job advertisement can be found in the news section.
Tuesday 16-Sep-97 Sub Editor Russ Cox is on training so I can sneak in time for an update. RC5 news item added. Contents of the October issue added. Oh yes, next month's teaser too.
Friday 05-Sep-97 The Amiga Inc. Developers Registration stuff is now up in the news section.
Thursday 04-Sep-97 Seems I forgot I had the day off. OK the details for AIR Link are in the news section now. I'm going to use dates as the links in the news section from now on.
Tuesday 02-Sep-97 Something wonderful is about to happen. Details of the next amazing DIY project are coming, complete with a covermounted PCB. No lie. Tommorow I'll put up the details. Oh I'm such a tease!
Wednesday 27-Aug-97 Improved and fixed the Project XG addendum. <sigh> well it's sure a learning experience. Thanks to the folks who picked up on the errors.
Tuesday 19-Aug-97 Added news item about the Amiga C mailing list. Added some fixes for common Vista Pro problems.
Monday 18-Aug-97 As people start building Project XG from the DIY feature, it became clear there were some errors in the feature. Half expecting some anyway, today I had a good look at it and corrected the diagrams and other mistakes in this Project XG addendum.
Thursday 14-Aug-97 Gnnnnnnnnnn, we seem to have left off Maplin's address on the Project XG feature, errata in news section. Please E-mail Russ Cox, the Sub Editor, and tell him it's his fault (even though it probably isn't).
Thursday 14-Aug-97 Fixed up the front page of the Database section to fit in with the CU Online style guide. Brought in next headings for the Database and Survey sections. Added new contents of the September issue since it's officially out today. Ripper it is too, y'all don't miss it y'hear?
Thursday 14-Aug-97 Removed free CD offer from the subs page. Apparently this did not apply to the 12 for 9 offer. Moved the DIY survey into survey section.
Wednesday 13-Aug-97 Woooooahhh, final phase of the big overhaul. Got the database section added. I thought "Wow, this is the most incredible update and I didn't have to do a thing". Dave Freeman, in Thailand (lovely place Thailand), sent the database to us already in good HTML format. There had to be a catch. Gnnnnnnnnn, it's all in mixed case. All 300 odd HTML files and filenames. 25 minutes and Rexx From Hell TM saves the day and regenerates all the filenames and the HTML documents. As you can see, it worked and we have a really wicked Database of the last 2 years online. Hoorah!
Wednesday 13-Aug-97 First phase of the big overhaul; redid all of the nav bar buttons and the nav Frames to add new sections. New Survey and Database sections, rename others like 'Surf's Up' to 'Links', 'Editorial' to 'Mailing List' and 'POV' to 'Opinion'. You got no idea how long it took to do those buttons. Now all I need to do is get the Database up...
Tuesday 12-Aug-97 Added the DIY survey in the features section. Damn, I need to get some time for a major update this week...
Tuesday 05-Aug-97 Managed to scrape some time together for some web site work. Art Gallery updated. Added pOS news. Fixed up the long neglected back issues. Added Andrew's Guildhall and Epic CD news. Groping for instant content, threw in a POV as well. Phew, time for home.
Thursday 24-Jul-97 Seems Gateway had something to say about that news.
Monday 21-Jul-97 Added Lotus Pacific news cunningly in the news section.
Friday 18-Jul-97 Contemplated the fact that we probably need a What's New button for the nav frame... Decided to go to the pub instead. <grin>
Friday 18-Jul-97 Added next month teaser page with funky picture of the real Project XG. Note the gratuitous use of perspective distortion and not a funny shaped box.
Thursday 17-Jul-97 Added AmigaNET UK IRC server and fixed the main nav.html, changed 'Europe' to 'European Community' on subs page
Tuesday 15-Jul-97 Added AmigaNET news item.
Tuesday 15-Jul-97 Added August issue to Contents pages.
Monday 14-Jul-97 Changed 'nav' frames so no underline after buttons on Netscape (sigh). Let this be a lesson, don't put <A> on a fresh line as Netscape assumes a space.
Monday 14-Jul-97 Added a 'What's new' changes log. :)
