Speaking of which, what does everyone think of the changes I've made to the frontpage? I also integrated the frontpage music into that fun chicken banner.Let me know if you see a difference!

Yeah there is a diffrence but to be honest I miss those dudes bobbong their heads to the music. I never really changed the song but those dudes are gone. I feel lost without them.

If you are looking for more stupid sites to make fun of, Captain_Insano recommended Bibleman. PU!

Tom, you are a god in my eyes... and your mentioning of my pathetic name brings me a glimmer of happiness. Yeah, i'm a kiss ass, but so fucking what. The screenshot is from Gun Smith Cats, a major kick ass anime.

Front page loads MUCH faster which is definetely a good thing. Hell, any improvement to speed is good when stuck on a 56k... :(

As for the whole Mikey thing, I don't think a section should be made specifically for it. I have seen a few Mikey parodies now, and the only one that was up to scratch was Razoric's. The others have been pretty sub par rushed works. The whole Mikey thing is gonna blow over soon anyways...

The front page loads way faster, which is a huge improvement on a 44k modem, I also like the layout better now.

The Mikey thing is getting less and less hilarious, and it doesn't really deserve a spot in NG history.

I don't have much to say about warp tour.. but Mike and portal history.. are worthy of commentary. Mikey... well he's a stupid fuck, and he's capable of finding your webpage and seeing the insults you're throwing around about him... good.. I hope it fucking scars the little shit for life you should randomly pick people to make fun of and make a gallery of stupid fucks with collections of derogative material about them in them.. can I say fuck on this?.. fuck it, the portal history subject.. why?.. why make a history of it? who cares about the past of the damn portal.. I mean I bet it'd be sorta fun to scan through.. but who really really really wants to see that poonjabi. bad question I'm sure there's alot stupid asses that'd love to look at it.. man Tom I love this site and all.. but you know there really is alot of stupid shit from stupid people on here.. you oughta filter it out better to scare away the "turds" that's the best word I can think of to describe that genre of people... they're just "turds" well fuck nuggets I can't think of anything else to say

Do you think Mikey should earn a place on there?

Hell no! I'm sorry to say but Mikey shoould in no way earn his place. he has been up for what? a few days? yes yes I know its been around for a long time (I remember the first time I heard his voice quite sometime ago... shudders) but on NG he is new and yes very much a fad. So please dont put him in the history. wha? wait I dont even know what this history is gonna be so I'm basically talking out of my ass but regardless he dosnt deserve a spot

I can still get the most exposure with Flash, and there is a lot of potential for more kick-ass games. I might look into producing a game for that new open-source system that is coming out (where you don't have to pay licensing fees or buy a development kit). I would love to release a Pico game on the X-Box, but I would need to team up with a real software developer. It's expensive to get into that racket.

just an observation. it seems a little strange to me...

It is weird... Basically, I've been feeling more excited lately, and Mikey just happened to be the first thing to come along and get me going. I've been in a bit of a rut for the past few months. Mikey is stupid, but he's fun for a few days.

i definately like the fact that the casino ad is gone, but would prefer if the music could be set within cookies so we wouldnt have to hit it every time.

and what happened to 'leave a message'? is it just me or did that thing disappear. if it returns, it would be nice to see it near the top or middle of the page

The "Leave a Message" bars are still on the site, but we removed them from the frontpage because they were an extra hit to the server that could slow things down in the tiniest bit (since the frontpage is the heaviest hit page on the site).

The chicken bar used to be yellow... I thought it looked too gawdy after I removed the rest of the mustard from the site.

well tom, there is some weird kit to program games for Playstation.. its called the Net Yaroze. i cant remember wether they sell it anymore but it was like A$900 which means you lucky american bastards could get it for about $450 or something :P and i think the format is only for PAL

"The History of the Portal" sounds very interesting, I can't wait! Do you still have that metal portal thingy that opens up into the rotating black hole? That would be nice to see again. As for Mikey, I don't think he should earn a place on there.

The intro page loads noticably faster now, thanks.

That preview pic of Disorderly you put in this post was mint, it looks like it's going to be crazy like the Simpsons arcade game. Speaking of preview pics, I'm still waiting to vote on the new updated Pico.

I can't believe that you never heard of Bibleman before! Bibleman has been my personal nemesis for the last two years or so. (He needs to meet up with my much loved but so far unused character- Natural Selection Man.) I just love it when an actor who was a sex or drug addict or an alcoholic finds gawd then goes on a mission to save everyone else from their "evils". There is no one holier than a reformed whore...

"Since the beginning of the 2000 tour, we have seen over 13,000 children come forward to accept Christ while attending a Bibleman Live Show"
Willie Aames, Bibleman

Yet they accuse gays and lesbians of "recruiting". Hypocrites.

Hey Tom,

Do you plan on letting us switch tracks for the music on the opening page? I mean I like what you got playing now, but I also liked being able to switch tracks.

Other than that, keep up the good work. Like the changes.

Maybe I'll bring back that feature. I didn't realize anyone was using it. :)

Well, an x-box version of pico is a funny idea (it would be the only game probably to receive an "AO" rating)

All that shit sounds cool. And about the BLAM thing. I think how many BLAMS you have it should add weight on your vote.. So after you get the maximum amount of expierience points you can still get better voting power! And I can't wait for the Portal Junkyard.. and the homepage is like a diamond! It kicks ass!
