Title: Look at Me Still Talking, When There's Science to Do
Post by: Ambient.Impact on May 23, 2010, 11:36:16 PM
Good news, everyone! We now have a presentable [force-local-link]About page (http://hl-improvement.com/about/)[/force-local-link]. And even better, we also have a semi-useful [force-local-link]Downloads page (http://hl-improvement.com/downloads/)[/force-local-link]. You'll notice that we've put together a copy of Half-Life: Uplink, just because. We've also updated the Half-Life menu theme with keyboard controls that are less 1998 and more 2008 (or 2010, but that doesn't rhyme). Now, if you don't mind, I have crawl back into my cave and get back to work.

Oh that About page looks beautiful (even if it has more links than the wikipedia article on chain mail), and I think now is time for me to switch to that perfected Half-Life menu.
But the best part is, every time you quote that song, it sends the same subtle message of continued metabolism!

Thanks. And yeah, there are quite a few things linked, but I want to make sure people that are new to Half-Life (and modding, etc.) are given a few hints as to what we're talking about, hence the links.

I can't believe it took this long for someone to mention Still Alive (http://www.gamespot.com/users/deliveryboy15/show_blog_entry.php?topic_id=m-100-25178795). Honestly, I'm not trying to do anything subtle with it, but I'll take credit for it anyways, haha. I just wanted to use the lyrics somewhere, and I figured I'd pair up lines with appropriate posts, as it mostly works. I'm not really that clever.

That's because you're a top secret government funded military robot.
