Sorry, no anime updates today. This time the update is a new section detailing our currently ongoing, awful experience with the Pacesetter Corporation. Click here to read all about it! I do have more anime profiles I need to get up, so I'll try to get those as soon as possible. Also on the next update, I'll let you in on some of the new things going on at work. Can you feel the anticipation?

I was able to get the entire site HTML 4.01 compliant. The <NOBR> that was used for the copyright notice no longer exits, and the BACKGROUND attribute of tables was replaced by code in the Cascading Style Sheet. I also replaced the Anime Nation banner at the bottom of the page with a few buttons instead. I thought the banner was hilarious, but just didn't really like the way it looked hanging out down there.

Added profiles of Miyu Yamano, Matsukaze, and Larva (all from Vampire Princess Miyu).

All credits are now in a blue bar above the bottom of the tables. They are also split into separate sections for the Details (and Image) and Description. I also fixed up the HTML to make it HTML 4.01 compliant (almost but not quite, since using "BACKGROUND" attribute with table cells "TD" isn't supported, nor is NOBR supported). Finally, I added a new feedback form.

Added profiles of Harris (Ultraman II) and Ultraman Jonias (Ultraman II).

Tuesday, March 5, 2002

Added profiles of Fatal Fury: Legend of the Hungry Wolf, Fatal Fury 2: The New Battle, Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture, Hauer (Fatal Fury), and Wolfgang Krauser (Fatal Fury).

Added a new site search, and this time it's not a simple JavaScript one. I tested out many different free site search hosts, but only found two that would allow the use of templates for the search results. These were siteLevel and FreeFind. I prefer siteLevel, as it allows much more customization of the search results, however it didn't seem very reliable. Several times it would return absolutely nothing, just a blank page. Plus, while I was trying to edit my preferences in my account, I would often get CGI errors and would have to continually hit refresh before a page would come up. So for these reasons I decided to go with FreeFind.

So what's been happening on the work front? Well, I got home at around 8:00am this morning after spending all night at work making master discs of Arc the Lad III. While the discs burned away, I watched Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, and searched around the net test out free site searches. Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust was simply amazing. It had much better art than the original, more interesting characters, and a wonderful story. Plus, the dubbing was excellent.
