5-15-2000

Hiya folks! I'm back! Had a real busy first half of the year changing apartments and new job! Sorry for not updating the site for so long. Mainly, I've been working on finishing up my HARDKOR series.

1-31-99

Was it 99,000 or 100,000 hits? As I approach the 100K milestone, I wish to introduce you to version 5.0 of my SuperKOR pages in celebration! 1999 is looking to be a breakout year for KOR in the US, with the release of PART 1 of the TV set and part 2 on the way. Also, it is my 3 year, 3 month anniversary since I created these pages in October of 1995. It's been a long wearisome journey for me personally on this KOR trek to keep up the KOR faith during the lean years. Now, with the final pieces of KOR falling into place, I looking forward to finishing my HARDKOR fanfic series just in time before the millenium. For that series, I have finished the Prelude and Book B chapters and have published 10 stories of my Book C series. I hope you enjoy the new changes to my site. Viva la KOR and KOR4EVER!

SuperKOR ver 4.5!!!
Made a significant upgrade to the pages. First "flatten" all the old content by placing all elements within one directory. Then added about 20k worth of links. I estimate that there should be about 300-400 unique links now. Also, split up the various sections onto specific pages and provided a means to bridge my KOR Kingdom Realm and SuperKor pages. They provide the "light" and "dark" sides of KOR which is so prevalant throughout the story. Updated the rest of my pages with the latest info.

2/6/96

10:00am KOR tip of the week If the background wallpaper is slowing you down (takes 15K to load) or the vast expanse of blueness is making you sick, you can disable it using netscape. Go to the OPTIONS menu and click the COLORS tab. Look for the 'Background' field and click the 'Custom' radio button. Last, checkmark the entry labeled 'Always Use My Colors, Overiding Document' and there you have it! A much faster KOR-browsing session for all!

2/3/96

2/3/95

3:00pm The meaning behind the Giant Blue or RED balls:
They represent the main link or site. Below this would be indented sub-links which would refer to specific info the user would want to access quickly and not waste time roaming about the main general site trying to find it. The only exception to this would be the Shin-KOR headings which refer to multiple sources of the novel instead.

2/2/96

11:33pm
Finished adding [Chapter A8: Inception] to my HardKor Page Saga.

1/29/96
