6/1999 iCE Pack
2. A fellah by the name of Tim Lewis wandered into our commons recently, deciding that, he too, had the desire to create incredible art and associate with the best in digital art. We couldn't agree with him more.
3. As we announced last month, the new iCE website has finally gone online amidst a bunch of hooplah and one of the more interesting was that www.ice.org was posted to the almighty Slashdot.org, the news site for geeks. As many people know, this will cause the "slashdot" effect, attempting to cripple servers with thousands of simultaneous viewers. Luckily, our systems held up great under the load and the web server never exceeded a load of 1!
4. In other recent website-related news, Ansiconv aka Artview 1.7 was released fixing a small command line parameter bug that prevented many DOS users from using the program non-interactively. This has been fixed and the new version has been posted to http://artview.ice.org. We will be compiling a DOS version for you gimps as soon as possible.
5. We would like to congratulate Anarchy and Aphid Twix on the release of the Nintendo 64 game they have been laboring on for a long time. It's a racing game called World Championship Driver, from Boss Studios. Check it out, it's a fantastic racing game, if you're into that sort of thing like Mongi is into jello.
6. Did we mention that in June alone, our web site served more than 2.3 million hits? You'll be hard-pressed to find another art group who can offer the hirez AND lowres artists as much exposure as we can! If you're interested in joining iCE, simply visit our website or send an email to [email protected]!
7. You know mellons are just like pears, except they're completely different.
8. Update on the Jamie McCarter situation: APS Technology has sent us a pre-release of their Summer catalog! Jamie's art can be found on the cover, the first page of the catalog, and another page towards the back! Congrats again Jamie on a job well done!
9. Women's world cup, broadcasting cellular phone conversations, government-sponsored co-ops, mysterious H: drive formats, and love that you just can't get enough of!
9.5 The votes have been tallied, and it's official: iCE's favorite Asian: Sinned Soul!
