Well, as Lazer said, the new layout's complete. Took me a long time to get that working correctly, and there were a few bugs I had to work out, but in the end it worked. Also, converting it all to JavaScript took a long time. However, this allows Ush, Lazer, and I to create new pages and add the links to it with 1 actual line of code (3 lines if you count the [script] [/script] tags). Also, it allows us to edit the source of the JavaScript code and have it applied globally to the page. So if there's a bug in the link page, I can find the bug, fix it once and have it applied on every single page. Aka makes our lives a LOT easier!!

Unfortunately, I'm not on Spring Break right now (though I take it others are by looking at Lazer's post). My Spring Break was last week. Oh well. I'll be at this Friday's meeting definately.

If you see any bugs, please post them in the forum, and also vote whether you like the new layout or not. Maybe you like it, but there's one thing you'd like changed or something. Then tell me!!! I'll try it out, and if it looks better or works better, we'll stick with it. Just keep the criticism constructive (it's not fun to spend hours working on a layout and have someone say "IT SUX U SUCK DIE I WISH U WERE DEAD" crap... not that anyone here would do that, right?!

If you're wondering why there aren't many news posts now, it's because I've moved those posts to an archives page that is divided into quarters according to the date they were posted. You can access them by the corresponding link under the news section. Also, just to clarify this - months in a year can be divided into quarters like so:
  • 1st Half
    • 1st Quarter: January - March
    • 2nd Quarter: April - June
  • 2nd Half
    • 3rd Quarter: July - September
    • 4th Quarter: October - December

SPRING BREAK! WOO HOO!!! This is the time for everyone to be active, and we should have quite a few people at the next meeting for once. Remember to give your opinions and suggestions about the new layout on the forum for hara to see and vote too. We also may have an alliance with another clan: clan LoT-, but I'm not sure yet... can't wait till warcraft 3 comes out and I hope everyone gets it too ;). Otherwise, ENJOY SPRING BREAK!

Well I'm finally able to update my website on my own computer! Hip-Hip-Hooray!

The whole pop-up thing that asks if you want to listen to music... let me explain what it does (in simple terms). Basically when you DO want to listen to music (by hitting Ok-Win/Yes-Mac), it randomly picks one of the music selections. If you don't want to listen to music, hit Cancel-Win/No-Mac and it will automatically load the Off link. Pretty nice script, and it makes it so you aren't forced to load the music if you have a slow connection.

I've been thinking about a new layout, but I haven't decided what yet. I'm going to try and get a frameless appearance (it would have to have a constant frame for the music to play in continuously). I just think those look better. I'll probably have a Beta version of the frameless look up soon! However it may be later this week since I'm now off spring break (BTW if you're wondering why I'm on, our school is hosting UIL this year, so we only have half a day today, and get Friday off... 3 days of school this week!!

7:10 PM Monday, March 18th, 2002

I'm sure we're all looking for something fun to do while Hara is gone; well, here's a little addictive game to play: Jet Slalom (I'm not sure if it works on Macs) You can also check out Infantry, a game you can download and play for hours and hours and hours... pretty good game for free. :) It might take some getting used to at first but it gets fun. By the way, EVERYONE KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK ON STAYING ACTIVE! Piece Owt ;)

8:37 PM Sunday, March 17th, 2002

I was bored so I decided to put some of my old maps that I made a long time ago on the files page. You can try to download them now but I'm not sure if they will work. I also don't have pics for them yet. Once Hara gets back, I'll find out from him how to zip the files and get pics of the maps. Enjoy!

Let me just say this: Battle reporting is a lot harder than you'd think. I start off taking some good screenshots, but then I get caught up in concentrationg my guys in the battle and all I'm left with are the "before" and "after" shots but none of the battle actually taking place... I'll try again tomorrow. I did just make the best comeback EVER in this one game... they have me completely owned but they got distracted (someone was attacking their base). They leave me alone, and I get some wyverns and wolf raiders. My BladeMaster was level 2 (yea I didn't level him very much - big booboo). Anyway they were doing mass taurens and huntresses, so my 8 wyverns completely owned their entire army... and their bases were killed because I starved them (didn't allow them to expand, therefore couldn't produce troops). Great game.

Okay...Hara didn't play with me after I was waiting for him for two all Texans must punish...for hara and his companions did not show up at the MOOO

Edit by Harabec 2:15 AM, March 16th: I, Harabec, was at the meeting, along with Psy, Lazer, Alk, and Ush. Ush, we got tired of waiting for you, and YOU came back 2 hours later after we had played Lurker Defense about 5 times... we were bored, people had to go, and Psy and I wanted to play WarCraft III. Don't strew lies around the website, especially on the topic news.

12:50 PM Friday, March 15th, 2002 Harabec (image by
I'm gonna try my hand at Battle Reports... look for them soon...!!!

10:00 PM Thursday, March 14th, 2002

Hey, I just got made a webmaster and im trying out updating the page and messin with some stuff. I just finished a 5 page quarter essay and I gotta type it now so... just testing...

8:02 PM Thursday, March 14th, 2002 Harabec (image by
Do not let the lack of update on the news page fool your eyes. I've spent most of my time posting update information on the forums. However, I figured it was time I gave the people that didn't view the forum some updates.

Well the Files section is up and running. Maps, replays, screenshots, and other files can be found there.

I've updated the CSS to swap the colors for the hover color and the actual link color (link color is now blue and hover color is yellow - for an example of what it was see the contents frame to your left).

I added a nifty little JavaScript that writes the date and time (according to your computer).

LazerLight may be our newest recruit, yet he may also be our newest webmaster (should he accept the email and make use of his position that is)!!

Changed the way to join - if you don't want to register on the forum at this instance and would rather email me that's cool. Understand at one point you WILL need to register (forum is the main place where topics are discussed and such).

11:10 PM Friday, February 15th, 2002 Harabec (image by
LazerLight was sworn in today at the meeting and is now an official member!! After the meeting we all played a 3v3 BroodWar game. The replay can be found here.

Well if you haven't been keeping up with the forums this might be some news to you. We have a new member who found his way here through the link in my signature on the WarCraft III forums. Everyone welcome Lazerlight!! (I feel like a gamehost or something).

Also, tonight at 7:30 PM CST there will be a meeting held. I'd like these to occur more reguarly than they were previously. So if you can make it please do!

I've been working hard on the History page and it's coming along. I hope to have the ENTIRE HISTORY (heck yea!) done by the end of the month. Wish me luck!

9:05 PM Monday, February 11th, 2002 Harabec (image by
History page started. Not a ton of information there, but I did manage to get the full text of "Guilt's Treason" in it's original, unaltered form. Lucky for me that I preserved that text file for over 2 years now.

11:33 PM Saturday, February 9th, 2002 Harabec (image by
Just thought I'd like to let you all know that the History Page is finally up! Not much there yet! Check back in a few days for some major updates!

9:24 PM Wednesday, February 6th, 2002 Harabec (image by
Apoc and Elder are back on!! Apoc has already rejoined, but I'm not too sure about Elder as of yet. Also, Count has shown himself and volunteered to guard our channel with his bot if we are in need (which we are very grateful for!!)

The WarCraft III: Reign of Chaos Beta has been sent out! Congratulations to all of those that made it... I have failed to receive any confirmation, but they said that it may take a few days (so I'm holding out until Friday!) If anyone here signed up and made it let me know! I want this site to be flooded with WCIII screenshots, unit information, and other goodies :)

Falcon's comp will be in the shop tomorrow, so he won't be on for about a week. We'll miss you while your gone Falcon!

10:15 PM Tuesday, February 5th, 2002 Harabec (image by
Not much news. It's been decided that History is the area Ush and I will work on. So I added the "old forum" which is now closed for historical viewing purpoes only. The last messgae posted there was by me, today, flaming Omega (old leader) for bold comments proving his stupidity. Check for yourselves. Anyway I'd update more but I have to now. It's been snowing all day today and I'm hoping school will be cancelled tomorrow (yes I live in Texas - strange happening indeed!)

If you have been reading the forums, then you may have noticed that we are working on the history page of the website. This is by no means an easy task, but Hara and I will try our hardest to please our fans. Also, if you have been reading the forums, you have noticed that I can't move the left side of my face. This is from a rare disease known as Bell's Palsy. I may have to have surgery done on my brain, so I may not be as active for the next few days or weeks.

6:02 PM Monday, January 21st, 2002 Harabec (image by
We got another new member today - James! Everyone be sure and give him a warm welcome!!!

1:39 PM Monday, January 21st, 2002 Harabec (image by
Well, I wanted to warn everyone there's a new rule I somehow overlooked. Order of Light is a legit guild, which means duping / hacking is not allowed.

Also, welcome Ush's friend, Discus76!

7:21 PM Thursday, January 17th, 2002 Harabec (image by
Well it seems USEast B.Net went wack last night and this morning. Not only did it freeze comps to those that were playing, but the char they were playing on suddenly became "Player Not Found". Fortunately all was restored, and I don't see any "rollbacks" of any kind (Barb still in A2 w/ all his equipment).

Also, concerning the Quests... I've figured we shouldn't do 'em. Anyone who does Meph runs will be overwhelmed with exceptional uniques or set items in a few runs.. I know from experience. Most of them suck or are just repeat. I could make them Elites only, but then I'm afraid only those with 80+ chars and that do Hell Meph runs would ever have a chance. There's no real "in between" balance to be found here. Besides, it's more of an annoyance on the Council. I've posted the poll in the forum. If you think they should stay, then by all means they will and I'll start that page after the one in the other poll on the forum. Anyway, that's about all I can really think of.

6:10 PM Tuesday, January 15th, 2002 Harabec (image by
Okay I know the website has been... "dormant" (not updated) for quite some time. Anyway, I wanted to update a few things. First off, MageZ has rejoined our ranks, as well as Alkanzar!! Be sure 'n welcome them both back! MageZ and Alk... Please check over the members page as there's some information I'm not too sure about and I'd like to know any mistakes I've made so I can fix 'em ASAP!

Also, I would like to thank everyone that voted in the poll about which page we should do next... HOWEVER, we have come to a tie... Both need to be done, no question, but they will take time (especially the history page). Anyway, it'd be nice if MageZ and Alk could voice their opinions as well before this is over (so that maybe it won't be a tie). So if you guys could vote (it's in the forum, not a post like it was on EZBoard), that'd be great.

Also, hopefully we can try to recruit a bit more. I know we're growing bit by bit, but that's mostly because we're inviting people we're close to (Matt, Psy, and Crazy are all people I know, and everyone else has been a member of OOL before). Now that's not bad, because the clan will be more like a family really, but I wouldn't mind the family growing either.

And again, I would like to apologize for the lack of update. I'll try not to repeat the "dormant" site routine [often].

6:34 PM Thursday, January 3rd, 2002 Ushdui
Hi! I'm Ushdui, and this is my first post as a Webmaster of this site. I hope you all don't get disgruntled! Anyway, Hara should change the music (too much Final Fantasy 7 in my opinion). See you later!
