Wow! It's been a month and two days!
Wow, it really has been a month and two days since the last update. In that time, the forums have sustained a hack attack and the prospect of recoding the entire site has frightened me so much, there's a permanent yellow stain on my favourite pair of trousers. Too much information? Well, I've got to say something other than, there are no new interviews, comics, ODWs, artwork or stories. In fact, there's very little new. To be precise, if updates were food, this particular morsel would be an eighth of a portion of nouvelle cuisine. If updates were money, it would be the equivalent of one hundredth of a Japanese Yen.
Jolteon, for those of you who want to know, is still alive and kicking. To be more precise, he's been buried alive underneath tonnes and tonnes of work, and like a person who's been buried alive in a coffin is now kicking and screaming for help.
Still, that doesn't mean I'm going to be running this site non-stop in his place. Goodness no, that will never do. I'm still in the process of updating the HTML and CSS of the site, a task so montonously tedious that my brain is on the verge of escaping out my right ear and leaping off a twenty-storey building to its squishy doom.
Seeing as I haven't got a decent update for you, let me take
this time to answer a few n00b questions I got in my inbox
A few of the questions have been faked by Wolf O'Donnell. In no way do these questions reflect the inferiority of the question askers. I like olives. Cheese is the devil. Share prices may go down as well as up.
Q. How do I join the site?
A. You mean, the forums, right? Just click on that link that says 'Register' and then follow the instructions. If you mean this site, the actual site and not the forums, then all I can say is there is no membership. You just visit the site and if you want, send us your interviews, ODWs, VCD Matches, comics, artwork etc. and we might put it up for you.
Q. May I use [XXXX] in an interview?
A. Check the Cast List. Those characters that are copyrighted by big corporations are free to use as long as you give credit to their creators. If they're copyrighted by interviewers ask the interviewer that created them. I'm sure if you asked nicely they'll gladly allow you to use their characters.
Q. Seeing as Jolteon is dead in the water, is it alright if
I send you interviews?
A. Okay, so this one isn't a n00b question, and is in fact, very sensible. The answer, however, is no. You may, however, send your work to or . These guys volunteered to do this work, so I suggest you be extra nice to them.
Q. You r0xx0rz. I wanna b ur luv slave!
A. Erm... yeah, thanks.
Q. You're cute. Wanna b my luv slave?
A. Um... Okay, that's enough question answering for today, methinks. Time to get back to work. Hopefully, we'll have a better update for you next time round.
P.S. I had to take the Halloween contest down. Unfortunately, I was too good at hiding the pumpkins so there's no winners. See you around.
24 October 2005
Wolf's Cannibal Pumpkins
Sorry about the long hiatus, but I was busy for the past months with my Masters Course and, of course, fixing HTML problems.
You may be wondering what's with the orange? Well, it's October. Soon it will be time for Halloween, so I turned the text pumpkin orange. At least, I think it's pumpkin orange.
Anyway, to show that the site isn't dead, I'm launching a
Halloween contest, "Find the Cannibal Pumpkins". The rules are
simple, I've hidden eight cannibal pumpkins around the site. They
look like this:
Each one can be found by clicking on hidden links throughout the site. Links to these pumpkins could be hidden in the background, hidden in the text, and hidden in pictures. Find the links, click on 'em, and you just might find a cannibal pumpkin with a number or letter on it. Just be carful. Some may have nothing on them and others may crop up more than once. E-mail me the correct letter/number combination and you may win a pack of Star Fox 2 trailers. It's all as simple as that.

Your mail missed the target
It would appear that my
Hotmail account thinks most of your emails are junk. I therefore
strongly advise you guys to include the word, Starwing in your email.
I'll set my account to prevent such e-mails from entering the bin.
Thanks for the feedback, guys! Oh and for those of you who haven't received a reply yet, I'm sorry. I'll get right back to you guys when I can.
4 August 2005
Either I've forgotten to tell you guys how to contact me or you've guys forgotten how to contact me. Please, please, if you have anything to say about any changes I've made to the site, please e-mail me, especially if you see broken links. Don't wait for me to show up on MSN Messenger. Don't wait for me to show up on the Forums. Email me.
My e-mail address is . I expect it to be used wisely. If not, I will eat Falco here. You have been warned.
1 August 2005
Whoops! Sieve brain...
Whoops. Erm... I forgot to put the Nintendo Celebrity Death Match link back up in the Games Room. Well, it's back up now. You can get back online and fight against Nintendo videogame characters or against users from other similar death match games. Enjoy!
EDIT: It turns out that the server that hosts the Nintendo Celebrity Death Match is now down. This is the biggest stroke of bad luck on my behalf I've ever seen. I'll contact the guy who runs gameshost.co.uk to see when it'll be back up. Hopefully it won't be long.
11:00 BST (British Summer Time): Take 300,000,000,000.
At last! The update I promised you has finally been completed! Except I haven't completely finished fixing the Comics Section. It's just the Guest Comics section that hasn't been fixed though, and nobody reads those, right?
30 July 2005
13:31 BST: I am error
Huge errors are occuring in my new FTP program. It has screwed my attempts to update the site. As a result, we only have one new interview from Aftershock. JediKirby, Nicky McCloud and Recamen all have broken links. I will try to sort this problem out as soon as possible, but until then the only interview you can read is Aftershock's new Interivew.
12:00 BST: You have no chance to survive make your time.
Interviews... So many interviews... So much work and so little time. Now I'm not like J. Most of the time I'm not on MSN Messenger, but if you email me, you will get a reply. So give me feedback on the site. Show me that you actually visit the site and give a damn!
7th July 2005
I didn't really want to update now but certain events mean I have to. I am of course referring to that horrible incident that happened today in the morning, during rush hour, involving several people, but not that woman who just missed the bus and tried to chase it down only to have it explode forty feet away from her. She was lucky. Others weren't.
I suppose these supposdly "Muslim" terrorists think they did something really great today, apart from the fact that London being bombed isn't anything particularly new and nothing we haven't really seen before.
I yawn at your antics and fart in your general direction. You have impressed no one and the loss of life is more than meaningless, it is senseless and you deserve nothing more than the worst that's coming to you. Going to Heaven? You can forget it and no self-righteous delusion will make it otherwise.
My condolences to those that have been affected and to those that have lost loved ones.
As a mark of respect all planned updates will be postponed until the end
of the month.

All work and no play makes Wolf a dull boy... All work and no play makes Wolf a dull boy...
Due to a huge oversight on my
behalf, the Games Room has been uploaded a month
Videogame Celebrity death Match.
WARNING: The multiplayer option allows you to fight against users of different death match games, including Pokémon, Digimon and even Dragonball Z. Do not, like I did once, make yourself look like a fool on the multiplayer option.
15 June 2005
They're there, but they're not there...
Yeah, before you inundate me with calls about pages not working, I know my Millennium Special Death Matches cannot be viewed. I've uploaded them. The FTP says they're there on the server, yet no web browser can seem to find them. Needless to say I'll be working on the problem, but given my luck, don't expect a solution anytime soon.
13 June 2005
Argh! Zombie website!
Hoo freakin' yeah... My first update. No, I'm not J and I'm sure you can tell it's not me from the style of this update. Yes, I'm not even myself; I'm that stoked. For months now, I've been streamlining this site's HTML for J and now I'm uploading the new, streamlined Interview section, which is now more dial-up friendly. Now your [CENSORED] Internet connection is no longer an excuse to not visit this website. Ain't that a vwoot?
P.S. The next section to be revamped is the Comic Section. Until I have completed the new Comic Section, please do not send in anymore new comics.

14 February 2004
Rumours of my death have been greatly exaggerated
Welcome, to year three of Starwing HQ! And to celebrate, we sent out skilled rangers to track down, capture, and torture the webmaster so he does a bloody update. Woo-Hoo!
Seriously, though: to make up for the winter hibernation, until at least March, there is going to be an update. Every. Single. Day.
In addition to that, Expect a few Anniversary-related items to crop up through the week....
So, let's kick off with a new In Search Of Sanity Comic.
New Art from Bowe
A stupid new amount of lovin' of the emerald Varity
9 November 2003

Good News: It has been replaced by the quirkiest comic series on the site, if not the web: Emerald Lovin', which primarily focuses on Knuckles' obsession of licking jewels </Induendo>
31 October 2003

Keeping with the theme, Wolf has made a special seasonal Seeing Stars

02 October 2003
Cheap at twice the price
I opened my mail today, to find an awesome gift: an extra 2 Gigabytes of Transfers rate per month. Thanks to those lovely chappies at 123-reg, the site will be up for the whole month for the foreseeable future.
Firstly, a long-awaited update to the Cast List

A trilogy of new Starwing HQ Comics
Prepare yourselves: Fara has gone off the deep end worse then ever, in Drake's revised first interview. Be afraid.
17 August 2003
It's all his fault
Okay, so it forced me to create and link nearly 120 pages of HTML together, but it was worth it: IamErtai has done a complete story, entitled Forces of Creation. Find it in the Story section, and set aside a few hours to read this wonderful yarn.
Sorry: This was put up last time, but I forgot to plug it: A new take on Interviewing, Seeing Stars. With Wolf O' Donnel as the producer, you know it's going to be crazy. Plus, it has the funkiest music on the site.
New Starwing HQ shenanigans
13 August 2003
Pick the nose! pick it! PICK IT!!!!
Wario Ware, inc.: Better than crack for causing random outbursts, neurotic twitching, and insane cackling. Also has the added benefit of looking like you're having an elliptic fit, and can't let go of your GBA.
A new Off Da wall in which Aftershock challenges Link for the dude-who-messes-with-time-for-good-reasons-but-always-screws-it-up award.

Bitching aside, here's a new interview by Nate

You've asked about it, so here it is: Robot's Dream

New Interview from Neckron McCloud. With music, naturally.....

A new comic in the ongoing St Georges day saga
19 June 2003
Webmaster: 1 Dreamweaver: 0
A new Interviewer, who goes by the name of Drake Spawnding
Observant people will have noticed on Drake's main page a much-missed feature; The Music. After reading much techno-babble, and wrestling for over a week with Dreamweaver's Cascading Style Sheets, I came up with this nifty system. When the music button is pressed, a separate player window will open, which you can leave in the background for as long as you want, and has a link to save the file, as well as some basic info about the song. This way, both audiophiles and MIDI-haters can be happy. Music will be re-added to everyone's Interviews over the coming week. Comments, as always, are welcome.
New art from Jenna
18 June 2003
8 new items in Bowe's Adventure

A trio of new art pieces from Firel
A brand new Off Da wall from Grey Wolf. Also, one line teasers have been put in for all O.D.W's, to help you find what you're looking for easier.
13 June 2003
*Insert witty quote here*
11 June 2003
I don't know why I'm bothering; you'll be too busy Reading "Order of the Phoenix"
10 June 2003
Just when things were starting to look sane....
The Off da Wall section has been lunched, completing the bulk of the site update. Some more new things will be changing soon, but nothing major. A content update will be up by Friday (at latest), as there are so many good pieces of art/interviews/off da walls/comics/stories that have yet to see the light of day outside my inbox of doom™...
09 June 2003
Once upon a time....
News section uploaded and fixed
06 June 2003
Interviews are back up. yay.
02 June 2003
404 ver. 2
Downloads Section now back up. Expect some new stuff in there soon
01 June 2003
404? yes please.
I am currently looking into increasing the bandwidth to make sure the site is available for the whole month. In the meantime, I've changed the site redirection so that if we do run out of bandwidth, links to the message boards will still be there, and a low bandwidth version of the site is available. Note this site is still under construction.
Speaking of Under construction, this month will see the gradual re-launch of the website. Various elements have been tweaked and changed for a better experience. As such, don't be surprised if you find a few dead links.
Coming soon: A HUGE content update, full navigation in the interviews, updated cast list, and a whenever-me-and-Pete-can-be-arsed newsletter. Plus, a brand new, Members-only area full of goodies. Details soon.
P.S.: Starfox GC kicks arse.
01 May 2003
Caution: webmaster attempting to be flashy
Part II of the St. George comic.
Last month, we ran out of bandwidth on the website (Which is why I waited until the new month to update), and I had to purchase a 250MB top up (Which also ran out.) Whilst I'm very happy that the HQ is now this popular, if this starts happening every month, then I can't afford to pay up, and we'll end up like the old server with long periods of downtime. I don't want to put ads up, because that insults you guys, and I'm certainly not going to ask people to donate to the site, as I believe what we've got here should be free content, nevertheless, some drastic re-thinking may be in order here. Any suggestion accepted gratefully.....
Site changes; firstly, some of the titles have been changed to pictures, for a more consistent effect.
Next, the Art Gallery has been improved, with easier navigation, and thumbnails.
The Comic section has a new navigation style, which fits in with the rest of the site
I've been experimenting with forward/back buttons on the interview pages. I have applied the changes only to my section as a test run. If you guys like it, I'll apply it to the whole site.
A bunch of broken links fixed
A new victim... errr, interviewer. Please give a warm welcome to the very patient ShadowZX
A new interview, along with new buttons and backgrounds from Charlie
A new chapter of Dante's Castle, male format
New Bowe's Adventure to the power of 2....
A trilogy of brand-spanking-new Starwing HQ comics
New art from Jenna, in the new and improved art gallery
Desperately wanted: ANYONE who can make smiles, please mail the webmaster
Next week - I'm installing Opera 7 today, so expect better non-Ie support.
Don't forget - it's E3 this weekend, so expect some news on Starfox Armada. Me, I'm happy with the newly-announced PSO Episode III.....
Random site of the week: We Love the Iraq Information Minister!
23 April 2003
The British are coming!
Welcome, to the St. Georges day update. As you can see, the English guys have thrown together a comic to celebrate. This is the first of a mini-series....
St. George became famous after slaying a Dragon. Unfortunately, we couldn't find a bloke named George, so we used Amy instead. Remember, Ganon; this could be you...
We aren't the only site celebrating our nation's saint; go and see the rest of them at the St. George's day piss-up
Finally, to prove that England produces the best nutters in the world, we present you with this newspaper clipping
In other news, most music has been removed. It will be back shortly in an optional player, but until then, all the music can be accessed here
Aftershock as a new Interview

Gratuitous Sex & Phantasy Star edition
Well, here is the fist instalment of our new Weekly Updates regime. Also, almost everything that has been updated today has some sexual innuendo. Whoo!
Lets dive straight in with an updated interview from Cackoo
A new interviewer. He's English, he's addicted to PSO, and he as mad as a royal butler; God, I love this guy! check out Aftershock here
Amy has some new playmates, in the form of fellow hunter Angelus
To complete the general PSO-ness of this update, why not grab the PSO Font?
A new off da wall, and a valuable lesson learned: very scary stuff happens when interviewers get together
Six new Starwing HQ comics, plus a new direct link system, and new comic indicator. Whoo.
Again, four new Bowe's Adventure comics, with direct linking and update markers

To come next week; 3 new interviewers, a big change in one section, and perhaps even (gasp) an update on the cast list
26 March 2003
One the edge of sanity, and loving it.
Righto, then. Back to work. Firstly, a new interview from cackoo's fevered mind
On days off, Cackoo believes that he is a small furry kitsume. Don't believe me? well, check this out

4 new comics, and what looks suspiciously like a plot in Starwing HQ
A new ISOS comic
Voltz has changed his music..
..As has Chris and Charlie
New rule: Any interviews written into an E-mail (Rather than an attachment) will immediately be given lowest priority. The reason for this is that any formatting is lost (which is bad), and some characters are deleted, like semicolons (which is worse). I'm not sitting here again giving 15 mins a page to stick god-damn colons back in your work.
Those of you grammatically minded will have noticed there is now an S on the comic button...
Scrollbar problem on the navibar fixed.
Shameless plug #1: Check out this new starfox site

21 February 2005
I've met the shigster- worship me

Feel free to E-mail me with any more pictures to upload, or just for a chat

Starwing: The Re-birth
Welcome, peeps, to the new Starwing HQ server! By making the ultimate sacrifice (selling my much cherished electric guitar), I have got some severe, kick-arse hosting <shameless plug> thanks to those awfully nice chaps at 123 reg </Shameless plug>, with a whopping 1GB bandwidth a month. A few notices, however;
Make sure you have bookmarked www.starwing.com or www.starwing.co.uk, as people who bookmarked the old main page will go to old version (I'll put a note up there ASAP, and may start dismantling it for.... other projects....)
There are a few teething problems, so please help me by pointing out anything that you find wrong/missing - it's a big site for me to check by myself....
Currently, the message board still runs off of topcities, and will do so until I've got a new version up and running, but that should be up all the time, due to the low bandwidth needed
First improvement; Everyone kept E-mailing me asking for MIDI files, so now you can get access to the full set
This has taken up a lot of time, and it was a busy month. As such, no "proper" update, which I'm sorry for (I've some great stuff just dying to jump out of my mailbox...) Still they'll be one soon....
Quick reminder; February 14th is Starwing HQ's 2nd birthday.....

Random stuff; Whoo!
Three - Count 'em - Three new Comics from IamErtai
A new Comic series by Bowe
Two new Interviews from Bowe
01 January 2003
Firstly, a Christmas off da wall from Bowe
Next, Lee's story has changed; another talented writer, Jenna, now writes things from the girls point of view. Also, the story has now been officially named. Presenting; Dante's Castle
Three brand new In Search of sanity comics, including the mystical missing number 9
Not to be outdone, Jason has provided three Starwing Adventure comics as well
Just to add his two cents, IamErtai has also made a new Starwing HQ
Two new Interviews from Charlie & Chris
Finally, a belated merry Christmas and happy new year from Starwing HQ. Thanks to a number of factor, the December updates didn't go quite to plan, to say the least, so my new year's resolution is to get my bloody act together.
24 November 2002
Let's kick things off with a new and improved comic section
Next, let's sort out another cock-up of monumental proportions; Regina's 3th Interview is actually the 4th in the series. Now that we've finally been arsed to do something about it, here is the real 3rd interview. Now let us never speak of this again.
Now that's out the way, let me introduce a new interviewer, Turd Ferguson
Also, give a warm welcome to Ganon, king of evil turned interviewer.
Oh, how childish: Just because IamErtai wrote a new interview.....
...Bowe had to go one better and write two new interviews.
Voltz, however, is a tad more mature
Typical. We've just got over the fever surrounding Starfox Adventures, then Nintendo go and start hyping up the next game. see News for more
New Starfox wallpaper in the Downloads section
10 November 2002
Now that my first-ever sprite comic is out of the way, I'm gonna go and try to blow myself over half of Essex. Play safe, kiddies. BAHAHAHAHAHHAH!!!!!
03 November 2002
Due to a rip in the time-space continuum, Halloween this year has been moved to the 3rd of November, so this update is not late. Ummm. Yeah....
A great new double-act, Chris and Charlie. They've been incredibly patient waiting for their stuff to come out of my Mailbox of Doom™, so just a quick public apology to them saying sorry for the excessive delay. Now go and read their work. Now.
May I direct your attention to the very appropriate (Or would have been if it was posted at the right time) creepy font. Why not download it; you never know - it might reveal more than you think.......
Bandwidth update; Yeah, I know it sucks, and with the comics, it's only gonna get worse.... Until Christmas. By then, Hopefully I will have saved up enough money to upgrade the account, and get more bandwidth, plus some helpful other extras. Please understand that, despite popular opinion, I'm not made of money, and this won't be cheap. I started the HQ with the notion that I didn't want to make money, but I didn't want to spend any either.
20 October 2002
The Shines! The Shines!
With a scarily Starfox-less Europe :erratic twitching:, I've had to settle for the new release, Super Mario Sunshine. That thing should come with an addictive health warning...
Anyhowz, we have the latest offerings from IamErtai
Also, exclusively to us (Because no other bugger would take it), a new off da wall by Cackoo...
...Two new comics...
Finally, something a little different. Although you probably don't know him, Lee has been helping out a lot behind the scenes of Starwing HQ, and given me a lot of support. He's been working on an ongoing story that I've fallen in love with, so here it is. Although it features Starfox characters, that's not the main focus. So why's it here? because it's a damn good story, and this is my bloody site and I can do what I want. :Pulls out Bazooka: Any Questions?
Oh, and one, tiny, thing; www.starwing.com
24 September 2002
Why are you here?
Dudes, Starfox Adventures is out in the US today. Hay, no-one will be here to read this. I can say whatever I want. Um.... err...... Ostrich!
New Comic. Woo-hoo.
Two new interviews by Bowe
Two notices; Firstly, I've got 30 pending mails to sort out for Starwing HQ, so I'm trying to update stuff every night.. Secondly, I know the site is unavailable almost every day, due to bandwidth. To try and sort this out, the Brian Valentine video will be removed this Wednesday as a test to see if that helps. If you want it, you've got 2 days left to get it...
20 September 2002
Starfox? What's that?
In case you've been living under a rock on Pluto for the last four years, Starfox Adventures is hitting US Shelves on Monday. Buy it, and buy lots of it.
Still don't want it? Well, if these new shots don't send you camping outside of you local games shop for the next 5 days\9 days\2 months, then there really is no hope left....
I've taken onboard the suggestion that the Banner should have a comment on, and come up with this;
New comic. heehee....
Whoops - I accidentally missed an interview; IamErtai's interview with Link and co. is actually his 10th interview (The first interviewer to reach their decagon). His new interview with the Ice climbers is now his 9th interview. My bad.
Not content with just being an assistant (Translation; Fed of of being Firiel's punch bag) Bowe has started his own interview section. Go. Go now.
On the subject of new interviewers, I'd like to welcome Runewolf
15 September 2002
The Sprites are coming! The sprites are coming!
New section; Read about our 16-bit adventures in the comic section
As you may have noticed, Starwing HQ is slowly going under a design change. As part of it, we have a new font; BankGothic Md BT. Download it to get the full effect of the site. While you're at it, just a reminder that the Andes font is used on the site too, so you'll want to grab that too...
Sketchy on the details at the moment, but it is important that you understand just how significant this week was in the news section
09 September 2002
This update is bought to you by Windows® .NET©
Yep; I've got my grubby little mitts on Windows .NET server RC1, and it's pretty sweet. Uh.... that's about it, actually.....
Speaking of Beta's here's the latest version of the site banner. Again, feedback, if you will...
04 September 2002
We will fight them in the header, we will fight them in the syntax...
Firstly, a Bata of a new site banner;
Any feedback much appreciated....
Change of plan; last 3 Updates on the main page.
New news, too.
30 August 2002
Good grief - two Updates in two days!
New interview from IamErtai, read it, for the most shocking fraud Nintendo has ever hid </sarcasm>
This time, I really have fixed the contest page. (Crosses fingers)
New update system; each month's updates will stay on the main page until the end of the month...
Don't forget; http://www.starwing.co.uk!
A new interviewer tomorrow; I'm s-l-o-w-e-l-y getting through the insane garbled mass that is my inbox;
29 August 2002
Another interview from IamErtai; I know the numberings odd, but bare with us..
Fixed the contest page. Yay
Yet more updates for Friday; still 22 Interviews/Off Da Walls in my Inbox (Lord, Take me now!)
26 August 2002
New site address! Change your bookmarks now to http://www.starwing.co.uk. there are a number of reasons for the change; 1) people kept complaining they couldn't find the site because they put the www on the front 2) it's a nicer address, and easier to remember 3) If the site should move (Which it mad do, soon), than this will be the only page that stays.
New Interviewer; IamErtai! He's interviewing the Super Smash bros. cast, but there so closely linked to Starfox, and they are so good, how could I turn him down? (Hides bribe)
24 August 2002
Mmm. this new computer kicks arse....Anyhowz, we have a mutherload of updates for you today, starting with a quadruple volley from a new interviewer, Voltz Megawatt
As you may have noticed, Jigglypuff 3 has been missing for a while; Jiggles deleted it, and my Outlook croaked, so we thought it had gone for good. However, while looking through an old backup CD, I found this little gem. Enjoy!
Here it is; The biggest Starfox interview in the world. Ever. Weighing in at 12,000 words, we are proud to present Jolteon's Interview with Shigeru Miyamoto & Yuji Naka
In connection with said longest interview, view the inspiration for it.
Again, I can't apologise enough, but we have another "unplanned" feature, this time from Cackoo and Jigglypuff. The only thing that makes sense about it is the title; Cackoo and Jigglypuff - Unplanned!
26 new Starfox shots and other titbits in the News section
A brand new section, our Contest page
New links and a general tidy-up of the downloads page
Like the music on this page? Of course you bloody do - it took me a month to sequence. Download it here
21 August 2002
Yes, I know I promised you guys an update, but I have a good reason this time;
My new, custom built, £1100 computer ^_^. It's a little bit bigger than a Gamecube, but don't let that fool you - It's an Athalon XP 2100+ with 512MB of DDR RAM, running Windows XP Professional. Very nice. unfortunately, I foolishly gave my old computer away when I first got it, for it only to not work, so I've pretty much been without a computer for August >.<
But now for the good news; Now that it IS working, I've invested in Dreamweaver, Photoshop AND Flash, so expect better pages, sharper photos, and interactive stuff. Woo-hoo!
About 10 Interviews by Friday. Promise.
22 July 2002
Firstly, I owe you guys an explanation. This month, I finished university, and got both a full and a part time job, totalling 60 hours a week. It's been hard work, but by cutting out little things like sleeping and eating, I've managed to do it all. As a result, the web page suffered from a lack of updates. I've got used to it now, so updates will be more regular. However, in the meantime, my deepest apologies to Jigglypuff, Cackoo, raptor, Voltz Megawatt, "Chris", "Charlie", and Nate Bodine. All of your stuff is too good not to go on, so I'll try and get it up this week
Three new interviews by Jigglypuff
The message board has been fixed; It needed re-initialising, and I didn't know how to do that. Sorry peeps. Oh, and to add insult to injury, all posted messages have been lost.
14 June 2002
New Starfox Adventures screenshots interest you? New modes? Video? Boxart? No? Then how about a brand new Starfox game - go to the news section. Now.
Woo-Hoo - The cyborg counter hamster is back from the repair shop, so we have a visitor counter again. Only thing is, it's missed about 400 visits >.<

Please bear with us - Topcities has gone funny, so this weeks updates will be a bit erratic
01 April 2002

02 march 2002
Well, let's kick off two new news articles, ranging from videos to biology lessons....
A new Off Da Wall. If you thought it was bad when two interviewers did a co-op project, then you might wanna stay away from this....
Not one, not two, not three, not six thousand, two hundred and eighty seven, but FOUR new interviewers, with a combined total of 13 interviews. Check out the interview section, or they'll bite you....
Sorry - our hamster-powered counter broke. We can rebuild him, but bare with us - Cyborg counter hamster's don't come cheap...
The interviews page has been cleaned up - the buttons look better.
yet more ALT tags added. My level of sadisticness knows no bounds....
14 February 2002
Well, who would have thought it - Today, Starwing HQ is one year old. When I started this site, I wasn't sure how well it would take off. Today, we have had nearly 2,500 hits, and a small, yet loyal community. I would just like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed to the HQ to make it what it is, and hopefully, this will be the first of many anniversaries....
Happy valentines day. I hope you all have someone special to think of today. I know I do...
