Dreadknux's Diaries: The False Move

Message added by Dreadknux,

This topic was good and got turned into Dreadknux's Diaries: The False Move at some point.

Greed had a part to play in this one. For the 'new' look, I needed a server that was bigger than Angelfire's 50MB. This was where I started to get greedy, and set off to look for servers that had unlimited web space, but without the annoying ad banners. Pop Ups would be OK though.

I got the site up after hours and bloody hours of needless uploading through the site, and the 'new look Stadium' was eventually unveiled.


This was the layout for every single page, and it took an absolute age to load, no thanks in part to STAS.net's crappy servers.
