rewake...
anything happening? Didn't see it online.

Well, I hate to speak for Mowcius, but I think it's safe to say that he's a bit busy.  Last I heard, he was working on getting some final versions of his Acrylic Covers cut out, and also working on filling up the site.  I would think that it won't be too much longer, but can't say for sure, as I'm not Mowcius :).

Yeah I apologise to everyone for the massive delay. It has really been a long time hasn't it.

I have been rather more busy than I realised but I also agree with anyone who is thinking it is not a great excuse for saying everything and then taking ages to do anything!

As TchnclFl said, I am filling up pages, if a bit slowly.

ETA? Tonight maybe :) It is still rather empty though but the basics are all there and once it's up it should be much faster to get it filled.

UPDATE:

The site is now live (well to be totally honest, the site was live before, just hidden in testing).

The site will probably be a bit slow for a few days as the server gets used to it (I dunno but it's always faster after a day or two) and the google site search will not work until google re-scans it with a bot (I have submitted it), not that you really need a search box at the moment!

There is not a massive amount on it, the shields list is almost finished, as is the hardware list. Everything else is looking a bit empty. Please use the contact page to send me anything or just to say hi so I know you've visited  ;)

There is limited stock available of the arduino duemilanove covers. Also there are some 20x4 LCD bezels and 16x2 LCD bezels as well as some Sparkfun USB Regulated Xbee board covers in the store.

Do you have a link for this new site? I was trying to scan through the thread but I must have skipped over it?

The site looks real nice.
Clean and crisp.
If I ever finish the projects I'm working on,  :-/ I'll submit some stuff to ya.  ;D

Indeed.  Just nice to be recognized :).  I'm happy to help out any way I can :).

Very nice, clean design indeed. I like the logo as well. Good luck keeping the site alive, it's not an easy task but the rewards are... errr... rewarding  ;)

Very Nice site!

I browsed through your html source, found a few errors and confirmed them here:

Although it's not much of a big deal because browsers correct these errors when we view them.

I was not able to hack your website.  :(

May i suggest changing the search box color or outlining it? on my screen it blends in with the background.

Out of curiosity, when you make small summaries of articles on the start page, do you type it into the html code? Or do you link it to a notepad doc.

Awesome website! :D

mowcius

Thanks for the heads-up on those errors. Yeah mainly little things thankfully and I will sort them as soon as I can.

At the moment, everything is either typed in html, the css or java. There are probably a few better ways to do it though.

Yes it does on mine as well but when I tried to outline it, it failed. Filling it a different colour just looks bad. I will look into it. Google hasn't searched the site yet so it doesn't do much at the moment anyway  ;) Ok, maybe google has searched it now, obviously overnight. Some things do not seem to come up yet still though.
