· Note: As of 2008 this microsite is no longer actively maintained
or updated. It exists here for archival purposes and hysterical reasons only.
As the year 2006 draws to a close, so does the current layout and
general structure of this site (not that anyone would notice or actually
give a shit). The latest batch of jokes being sent out én masse are
also the last (text) jokes having been sent out. The stoic, structured, numbered,
and dated (ambiguity intended) layout will be replaced by the more fluid structure
of a blog that suits my personal taste, current style, and future projects.
As a matter of fact, the change will be a huge sigh of relief.
Sure, the site will still be worth visiting. There'll be jokes, humour, entertainment
and virals aplenty - albeit in a very different form. Being the nostalgic archivist
that I am, the existing content will remain - but presented in a different manner.
Changes will be either gradual or drastic, I've no idea at the moment. Interactivity
will be a key feature, and learning new techniques and technology a new challenge
on my part. We'll see how and when it goes. So there!
And on a recent trip to Stuttgart, we just had to stop for this pic of what
is clearly not an Afrikaans-owned restaurant!
Just adding new material... and we've had visitors from the Cook Islands!
Sometime soon this site will also be redesigned to more resemble a blog.
If this site seems somewhat neglected lately, there are actually other
projects to attend to... life happens when you're busy making other plans.
As if it weren't obvious, July is "animal month"... jokes and stories about them
critters that also populate the planet and make up a staple part of our diet.
And, in case you're visually impaired, the crappy layout is no more: it's been replaced
by one that's less shitty, showcasing my ever-progressing skills in site design and improvements
in humility. So, what does the future hold for the HMVH Corporation BBS Online (as
we've taken to calling ourselves again)?
a) We've created ourselves a GoogleGroup.
b) The site will move over to a new, commercial host, allowing lots of space and bandwidth
for all the added features and assorted rubbish you have and will come to expect from this
site and its SysOp ;)
c) It'll invariably take the form of a Blog, for reasons of practicality.
d) Some of its sub-sections (or mini-sites, if you will) will include some of the smut
and other nonsense that featured on the old DOS-based BBS. That ought to be fun!
Now go away, leave me be. I got shit to do...
