I'm going to start a website called bluesnew.com

Too late, it already exists (and it's completely unrelated to this here site )

There is one possible exception though; I thought the demo for The Fallen was pretty interesting

Yup, and I pointed that out to Loony after I played it late last year, but I guess he needed more convincing. Why else would he bring up the topic again half a year later?

I thought JA2 sold really well?! (at least in Europe??)

Read the press release, it explains why that didn't help them: "...failure to receive royalties due from the European publishers..."

On another note, Blues News seems to be much slower loading lately than it has been in the past. New host?

No changes were made or are planned for the server or our connection - and for me the site loads just as speedy as always (well, since we got this new board, anyway)

By the way, the article seems to have been written by someone in the UK.

Uhm yeah, that's to be expected. CVG is a UK site.

3. Re: The links (not sausage, and not golf) Jul 15, 2001, 14:54  Frans 
 
Actually, the news story originally contained the wrong links to the site's frontpage, rather directly to the English and German versions of the interview. I fixed it now.

5. Re: Ummmm file name Jul 11, 2001, 17:52  Frans 
 
The server file seems to be misnamed on blue's.

Use hlds40164017.exe instead of hlds41064106.exe
Unconfirmed and probably fixed by the time you read this

Oops, a typo in the link on that page, that file itself is properly named. Thanks.

I just forget my password, and don't really see the point of trying to figure it out. I would just have to remember it

You can use the system to look it up:
http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/user.pl?mode=lookuppassword
and if you have cookies turned on in your browser, it will remember it for you after the first time you log in.

Actually, it looks like the download size weighs in at around 91.6 MB.

Nope, it's 91,558,918 bytes which equals 87.3 MB.

19. Re: I want my half-life patch! Jul 8, 2001, 12:43  Frans 
 
What in the hell happened to "sometime next week?"

They didn't make it, obviously. There's no new release date known, officially or unofficially, so we'll just have to wait some more.

also, did the old thread get buried? The post number suspiciously dropped, i.e., it actually got lower.

That was explained by Bagpuss (our forum programmer) in another thread:

So how come he isn't blue?

Because he's green.
Except the green background was so dark that it was hardly visible, but that's been fixed now.

shul (which noticed the "q" for the first time.. was that always there??)


Yes, although embedding it in an 'i' container makes it much clearer indeed. Nice idea

Btw, is 'shul' a thing (which) or a person (who) ?

Great site (Just don't insert any registration in there :)

Thanks. And don't worry, that'll never happen, we don't have any need or use for that kind of information, nor are we interested in the headaches of collecting and maintaining it responsibly, or in the resulting flames.
