Out of doubt, out of dark to the day's rising / I came singing in the sun, sword unsheathing. / To hope's end I rode and to heart's breaking: / Now for wrath, now for ruin, and a red nightfall!

a new host! With no pop-ups! You
probably came here from my old web address, which means you're
probably confused as to why the site isn't named Jerek Dain.
Well, that's something that's coming with the new design which
I hope will be ready soon. Stay tuned...
May 6th 2003
you thought I stopped delaying...
one good thing is coming - the removal of ads! Yay! I'm actually
going to be moving to a new host soon, which will be 100%
ad free! I've been wanting this for a while, and I'll be glad
when it happens. I'll keep the page here at Tripod up for
people following old links, and also as a backup page in case
there's problems with the other site, so I won't just be letting
this page sit or just be deleting it.
thanks for all the free hosting, but it's hard to beat free
hosting without ads.
site address isn't ready yet, but it will be at http://www.deciv.com/jd/
when it's up.
to the idea of a new site design? Well, that's still on the
way too. That won't be up right away after the new address,
but should come relatively soon after... So, knowing me that
doesn't mean a whole lot, but this time I'm actually excited
about getting it up, since I'm doing some fun new stuff with
it which will add some cool interactivity to the site.

it's been one day short of two months since my last update,
and I'm still not updating the of-the-month things on the
left. The new design is almost done, just in need of a few
using the cool new Audioscrobbler.
(my stats page is here,
if you're interested)
Zelda game The
Wind Walker will be out soon. It will be nice to finally
have the proof of it's greatness to all the skeptics who think
it's a kids game just because it
uses a certain kind of anime style. But on the 24th it's
quality shall be proven for those few who still don't believe
me. There are playable demos of the game running in stores
now, and I got to have a few second on one. I immediately
noticed that the graphics were definately not done justice
in the screenshots I've seen all over the web and in magazines.
I also got to attack a few enemies, and marvel at the cool
effects of the combat moves. Very cool stuff. Even the dust
looks cool, I'm not even kidding. I spent have my time rolling
around on the ground and watching the dust plume up.
about it. The new site should be ready soon. (emphasis on
"should") Oh, and by the way, one of the reasons
that the new design is taking so long is that several sections
that I removed for space purposes will be returning, so be
sure to come back later to check it out.
