TweakTown NewsRefine News by Category:
It has came to our attention that our Web News section isn't quite satisfying everyone, for several reasons. Firstly, the news is fairly secluded on it's own page and because of the frequency of posts, people tend to miss a fair bit of news which is posted.
We are strongly considering bringing the Web News back to this page, as it originally was on TweakTown's old design for those who can remember back that far. We'd still have in-house news similar to this, but only a couple items above the Web News. Additionally, instead of having each post as it's own individual news item, we'd have 2 or 3 news posts per day summarising the day's latest news from around the world. We'd also include more Press Releases and breaking news in this section!
The forums are back online after some short down time due to a database error. Some posts have been lost and if you registered on the 22nd of December 2001 or after you will need to register again. So grab a coffee and come join us in the forums!
Mike "Darthtanion" Wright has gotten hold of a new heatsink that is made by the premiere case company, Antec. Can it hang with the big boys? There's only one way to find out, and that's to check out TweakTown's latest review covering the Antec Jet Cool HSF.
Also, make sure to check out our newest writers' very first article! Sevan "Starchild" Ismailian has posted a piece entitled "Windows XP Preview", so go see what he thinks of this OS of the Future.
Just a quick update today, Osiris and FiReBLaZR from the forums have created some new TweakTown wallpapers for your viewing pleasure. I have added them both to the wallpaper section for all to download, check them out here - Top work guys! :)
Just recently we have been looking into the possibilities of having available our very own TweakTown Merchandise - This includes; t-shirts, jumpers, mugs, beer steins, caps, mouse pads, boxer shorts and tote bags and so on. The products will be produced by a third party company in the United States who have international shipping available, considering the majority of our reader base is American.
I would like to encourage all interested to vote in the TweakTown Forums - All profits gained from sales will be feed back into the hosting costs of TweakTown and other costs we may incur. If there is enough interest shown, chances are we will be holding a design contest for the logo or design to appear on all the merchandise products. Thanks for your time!
The largest tel co in Australia, also one of the biggest Internet providers in Australia, people using Telstra Internet services and the network as a whole cannot access TweakTown - This includes my school which uses a Telstra ISDN line, Telstra cable users, Telstra ADSL users and so on. I'm not sure why this problem is, but I've got some feedback on this issue - Loyal readers have even been swapping ISP's so they can access TweakTown as per usual. I will be contacting Telstra shortly so we can try and resolve this problem together. If people are changing ISP's, I think it is a big enough problem for Telstra to take responsibility and take the required action to fix the problem.
I have since got in contact with Telstra and after talking on the phone with them for about a half an hour they will "check it out and see what they can do...". I don't know if this means anything at all, but at least they will check it out, I hope. If you are a Telstra Internet user and cannot access TweakTown, you can contact Telstra Internet Services on 131 282 anytime, which may just get them to take some action.
Update - Well it seems Telstra have fixed the problem. Lord Skippy let me know just recently that he can now access TweakTown, and he is a Telstra Internet customer. Good news, thanks go out to Telstra for fixing the problem.
