What's New? - Recent Updates
Anyhow, I do have some plans which I *hope* will work out now that I am back online - announcements will be made when I'm ready.
3rd Jan. 2005 - Yes it's me. Regulars here (well, once upon a time that is) would notice that apart from the layout, nothing has changed at the MSHP. That's true. I was working on this re-vamp in mid-year 2002 (can you believe it?!). Anyhow... due to something called 'moving on with life' MSHP kinda died when I left the UK. So much has happened since then, and so sorry to dissapoint - The MSHP as you know it long ago is not making a comeback. I just thought that with all the effort I put into this new layout years ago, the least I could do is put it up somehow. Otherwise it would be just a waste of precious time. Besides, Tripod UK and any other free webhosting these days basically... errr... sucks with all the ads and what-not. But I'm not blaming them (they need to eat and stay alive like me ^_^), and I am not so committed that I pay money to host MSHP on some server somewhere anyway. To summarize the key-points I want to put across:
MSHP won't be updated anymore, but I'll leave this here as an archive of Shirow info until tripod.co.uk decide to pull the plug.
I no longer have the drive or commitment of years ago to be so active and up-to-date with regards to Shirow Sensei related stuffs.
I've updated my current e-mail in the contacts section so those who wish to get in touch can do so.
I am still a Shirow Fan and although not as crazy as before, I am trying my best to keep up with the major works ID3, ID4, GITS SAC, Innocence, Appleseed 2004 (o_o... wow)... So no more #1 fan, eh? Its just not that convenient for me to source out Shirow stuffs anymore, which is hard (but not impossible) to do in this country...
This website is SO dead!
In the meantime, everyone take care and I miss all my good friends which I met thru MSHP from the days gone by. I very much hope to hear from you guys again just to catch up on things. Honestly, friendships are the most valuable and precious thing I gained from my MSHP experience. However, I really suck at keeping in touch :P so hope all of you are doing well. Now I very much wish to join my good Italian friend Puto (haven't heard from him in ages too!) in happy Shirow retirement \^_^/ - Signing off; Lucas
14th Oct. 2001 - Some delicious Shirow News to somewhat remedy the extra long period of silence from me (not that you all miss me too much ne? ^_^). Anyhow, I'm trying my best to work on quite a lot overdue stuff- the fan art gallery, reviews, my personal section etc. So hopefully I can manage my time well enough to do them soon. On a side note, for F1 fans the Japanese GP at Suzuka this afternoon was really something wasn't it? Superb 2nd-place performance by Juan Montoya and generally a splendid season for BMW-WilliamsF1. Go Monster!! ^_^ Looking forward to the next season, and looking very much forward to do more updates here. That's all this time 'round.
12th Aug. 2001 - *GASP* Lucas actually updated!~ ^_^;; Shirow News, important ones too which I'm really sorry I didn't have time to do for all of you earlier. And a little update on what's up with me at the Personal section. I doubt I can do much in my current situation but I'll try my best to do something here whenever I can squeeze in a few drops of time.
8th July 2001 - A little "cosmetics" update. Just tweaking around with this main page. Updated the GITS Book Infos with MMI details, and a little update on what's going on with me at the personal section. Those too lazy to read- I will be disconnected from England tomorrow (no more computer) and it will be some time before I settle down with a stable connection. As usual, you know the purpose of the BBS by now. Daniel, you make my day! ^_^
30th Jun. 2001 - EVERYTHING is new. New layout, modified content; some taken out, new sections added, too much to list. At the moment, just some new additions- Shirow works listing, Nero Hard re-vised, BBS posting guide, and of course, Shirow News- catching up with happenings in the past one month. I will continue with updates and modifications whenever I can. GITS2: MMI Standard Version is out in Japan 2 days ago, and comes with a cool mousepad. Get this, and get the English one when it eventually comes out. And as always, check the BBS for the latest news and discussions. Enjoy the new MSHP! ^_^
