Quiet. Too quiet.

Jed Hagen's home page has a new URL because of some foul-up with his net-hosting arrangement. I think I've managed to fix all the links to it, but feel free to point out any I missed.

I also updated the URL for the Sfstory archive, which has been pointing at the wrong address for a while now. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be working right now. More news when it becomes available. #

Experimental Version of "Buzz Williams"

I've posted an experimental HTML-based version of "Space Commander Buzz Williams". Since there's already an ASCII version availble in the library, I'm trying to make an HTML version better enough to justify the effort in making the conversion. As a result, I'm using unicode to provide things like em dashes and quotation marks. If your browser doesn't support them, well, that's what the ASCII version is for.

For the full effect, you'll need a browser with decent style-sheet support. That will give you effects like indented paragraphs and margins. Unfortunately, browser support for CSS is weak and there's a bunch of hacks put in to work around problems. Sigh. #

Other Projects Advance Slowly

I'm afraid I don't have a lot of progress to report for my other projects. Aside from starting a new semester of classes, I'm also keeping busy as new de-facto webmaster for PSSFS. If you haven't checked out the site recently, you might want to visit. I've been slowly remaking it in my image.

I haven't actually written anything for Starcruiser Anonymous #21 lately, but I am still working on it. In the meantime, I've started writing more detailed outline for my next project, code-named Sigma. I've also managed to dream up a workable premise for Starcruiser Anonymous II, which I expect to begin posting sometime around the year 2525 (provided, of course, that Man is still alive).

I'd hoped to have some information up about Yoko Kanno, a Japanese composer I've been listening to a lot recently, but it's not quite done yet and it was holding things up. I'll try to get it in next time. #
