Website update

I'm still making adjustments to the website's layout. It keeps looking better. The subtle "metal and gold" motif works really well. No pop-ups, banner ads, or overuse of animated GIFs. Optimized for high screen resolutions. While also being designed to load fast. Just as I like, simple and effective.

Comments are welcome. I've also made a thread to discuss it. Improvements, very much so. It's now at RC1 status. And this'll probably be the 4.0 release. But it's still nowhere near complete. A few elements I'd like to have are difficult to implement in standard HTML. Interactive content often requires understanding of PHP, Flash or other technologies.

News & Trivia

I've made adjustments on the .html files which my website consists of, but they haven't been uploaded due to server maintenance. Expect it soon.

Now, for the first wave of random trivia facts. I intend to post various ones over time. They'll always be true, and generally little-known.

  1. Originally released around '93-'94 for the 8bit Famicom/NES in Japan and the US... Mega Man 6 to this day, over 13 years later, has never been released in PAL regions for any platform.
  2. Using SURF on the Cinnabar or Seafoam Island coasts in legitimate B&W Gameboy Japanese cartridges of Pokemon Green, will not trigger wild encounters. All glitches directly involving said action are therefore rendered impossible without a cheating device.
