|Tuesday, December 11th,
Just made some minor changes to the
navigation bar, changed the site's opening paragraph, added some more
links and this background behind these words. Luckily my
computer was able to go through an entire hour without freezing and
shutting down due to an illegal error in the "Quake III
Arena" icon. Wow...
unsafe! It's insane! It's the Pyro Universe Message Board
Yeah, you heard me
right. I got a message board up and running. Feel free to post
anything about fireworks or your pitiful lives that you want, and since I
have no life, I'll probably respond within the earliest possible
nanosecond.. Isn't your heart just beating with excitement? I
didn't think so.

Sorry for the lack of updates or anything - if anyone even
noticed. My family just finished moving for the 4th time in 9 months, so I
haven't really had time. Plus I've been trying to get my shitty new
"computer" to run FrontPage, Paint Shop Pro, and all the other miscellaneous
programs I use for this site. I
strongly advise anyone not to buy from Compaq. Their machines
are crappy and work better as boat anchors than PCs. Yeah, 512 M of ram
and 1.2 GHz sounds nice, but not when the computer's processor overloads and
shuts down as soon as I move the mouse or connect to the internet. Compaq
is always more than happy to sell you a computer, but won't do a damn
thing when it breaks down (yes, WHEN, not "if"). They
often "forget" to include vital pieces such as power cords,
speakers, etc., and then refuse to send you the part. Technical
support is practically nonexistent. In the rare event that you
actually get through the recordings to a live person, it's usually someone
with such a heavy accent that you can't understand what they're saying.
I'm going to be
transferring this site's hosting pretty soon because I'm sick of being
hosted by Freeservers. I've had enough of their obnoxious banners and
pop-ups that fill your screen whenever you click on anything, and I'm sure
you have too. The host transfer will also fix that problem of "http://www.pyrouniverse.com"
being displayed in the address bar on EVERY portion of this page, even when
you click on a link to a different site. I'm also switching all of the
pages to this new layout, which will take a couple of weeks
