If you remember last month I mentioned that we would be moving TWL to a new server dedicated almost exclusively to TWL. This move now has a date, and that date is Saturday December the 27th. At some point on Saturday, probably early evening, the site and forums will go offline. At that point our DNS will be updated, and all files transferred. Depending on the speed of your ISP's DNS the site should be back online anywhere between 24 and 72 hours later. Once we have moved we will have access to vastly more HD space, and lots more bandwidth, which should mean you will see some nifty things around here!

On another note, as you may have noticed, I have been posting allot more news here. I intend to continue this practice, however news at this time of year is very slow, and Half-Life news is even slower for the obvious reasons. I would just like to remind you that if you are working on a mod, or you come across a piece of news that is directly related to editing Half-Life, or any other game for that matter then please by all means submit it!

If I don't post again before Christmas, let me just wish all of you a very very Merry Christmas. It's been a big year for Wavelength; we've seen massive changes to the main site -- from our Initial 2.0 launch to our 3.0 re-launch, things have changed an awful lot in the space of 12 months. Next year we expect there won't be quite so many drastic changes, but we hope you stick around for all the cool stuff that's bound to happen next year, not least of which will be our in depth Half-Life 2 editing tutorials that we will have.

Update: rkzad just worked up this new skin, its essentially the same but takes up a bit less screen space and tweaks a few things. If you preferred the old skin, it's still available in your skin chooser.

I do not notice any thing different with this skin.

I do. It simply reduces the white space around (and inside) tables and allows more to fit in less space. It would probably be more noticable if you had a low screen resolution, but knowing you, pplante, you're probably in a resolution of 1920 x 1440 or somethin ;)

Yeah the differences are totally minute, but more space is good. I found too much space was wasted before. I'm on 1024x768 :P

Yea, I'm on 1152 x 864 and I can notice a significant difference.
If at all possible, could you reduce the spacing around the titles of tables more?
It just seems that the title's table on one-line comments are larger than the actual box that has the comment :P
For example, the part that says "affiliates", or the part that says "feedback". It would really reduce the vertical space.Edited by EarthQuake on Dec 24 2003, 16:17:51

Done... I've been meaning to do that.

Wow, it looks lots better.
