Well, only reason I suggested a wiki is for the easy ways of modifying the content, but for that you could go with a modified wordpress as well. But if you're not afraid of getting knee deep into some HTML it doesn't really matter.

Here's the whole thing:

The html isn't that clean, I just pasted it straight into Dreamweaver to keep the original formatting. The content links at the top is done with <a name="C1">Chapter name[/url] so you can link to it later with just <a href="#C1">Link< /a>. Dreamweaver creates alot of paragraph elements by default, but it looks okay so I didn't see any real reason to mess with it. Some of the styling is inline, some is done with style.css.

And, I don't let anyone touch the Colonel :(

I've got some unused space on my webhost. Do you want it as a simple html file or a wiki

edit: Read about the suggestions for a wiki that came up earlier. You could have a wiki with restricted access just to have easy ways of modifying the content. I'll just throw it together quickly and hope I don't miss anything, and you can choose.

edit 2:, without much formatting so far, just threw it into dreamweaver. Added the zoom as well, if you want it. Hoping I didn't miss anything or added something that shouldn't be there.

Well, correct me if I'm wrong, but all "good" artists plan things out, just more or less formally. Experience with planning things out a bazillion times eventually gets in your head, it might seem people skip some "basic steps" but don't they just do it unconciously?

So if it's a tutorial video, then that sounds like a really bad idea to me. Edit: Checked the video, and the description says clearly that it's not a tutorial, just a video on how you do what you do.

Is this really a good way to advertise a game? I'm far more interested in never laying my hands on it even if it turns out to be a good game. Sure a lot of people now know of Bob and his game, but I'd wager alot of them hasn't even seen the latest happenings and still think he is a douchebag.

An alternative to BBMagnify would be to use Windows XP's Magnify

I'm pretty sure taking it to a racial stereotype isn't accurate. Do we know if there's people acting like bob in japan? We don't follow japanese gaming websites. Also I don't think it's always a virtue to talk small like the cartoon Pixel does. You don't owe it to anyone to be like that. Of course that doesn't mean I think bob is reasonable or anything, but that dichoctomy presented in that image I think enforces a stereotype of as-undisturbed-as-possible-consumption that I don't support, so I wanted to say something.

Yeah, you're totally right about the racial stereotyping there. I must admit I completely missed the huge headline and went right for the text. And these two are extreme sides of the scale (if you can label it as such), and I've heard some people say that it's not a bad thing to have some of the traits that Bob has. The egocentric side of him annoys me too much to even slightly consider taking his side though.

EDIT: It appears it, indeed, WAS viral marketing about a game in which the exact same thing happens: the main character goes nuts and makes a game. ...This actually makes me think even less about the game and its creator. Go you, Bob, now you're nothing but a troll.

I'm not entirely convinced that's what it was supposed to be all along, but then again his ego seems to be the only thing that fits into that room.

Someone linked me to this image, slightly NSFW (mspaint cock) but pretty fair description:

My brother's bin rushed to hospital with appendicitis  :( keepin him over night and he's avin surgery tomorrow.

Well worried, seems pretty bad  :'(

If it's caught early on it should be fairly safe, I don't believe the procedure it self is that dangerous, pretty routine, but the actual rupturing of the appendix could be (if it goes that far). I had appendicitis as a 7 year old. The appendix ruptured, healed, ruptured, healed, etc over the course of four-five months. This was back in '94 and left a pretty big scar that's still visible.

Hoping everything goes well!

It's your browser that's trying to resize using billinear (I think that's it) filtering. It's the latest annoyance. I think right now only Chrome and Firefox 3 uses it though.
