We have overhauled the links section so it's more organized. We plan on making even more updates soon as well so stay tuned. 

Note: When submitting a link make sure it doesn't  already exist!  The majority of submissions we've received so far have been links to sites that are already in the collection.

That "Scotty's Dead" thing has been the top news item for too long.  How freaking morbid.  Since I have nothing interesting to say I thought I'd just post some fun links. The following links were found on chrisdiclerico.com

Courtesy of Associated Press:

LOS ANGELES — James Doohan, the burly chief engineer of the Starship Enterprise in the original "Star Trek" TV series and motion pictures who responded to the command "Beam me up, Scotty," died early Wednesday. He was 85.

The last months of a console's life usually end up having the best games and the PS2 looks to be no different...

The newest entry into the Burnout series is coming in September. Awwww yeah.  I wouldn't normally even look twice at any racing game, but Burnout 3 is one of my favorite games for PS2 (up there with Ico, Ratchet and Clank and Katamari Damacy). I've probably sunk more hours into Burnout than any other game -- simply brilliant and addictive gameplay.   

Speaking of Katamari Damacy... there's a new version of this masterpiece due in October. It's a good time to be alive my friends.

Watch out for a Transformers Movie in 2007.  I'm guessing this will be a feast for the eyes with outstanding special effects, but will they make a lame kid's movie or a movie geared more towards adults?  Hopefully Dreamworks finds a talented director and crew to bring it to life.

You may have noticed that a few things have changed on the pixel art detail page and I'm sure some people will have some gripes.

We had several requests to expand the space around the pixel art so larger pieces have more room to breathe.  The "Actions", the ratings and the zoom buttons all stick out more now and we gave more room for the description/details in the process. We even had some room for the "small file" which was an oft requested feature.  There's still some design bugs and cleanup to work out, but this IS the new detail page for the time being so tough titties to all you naysayers.

We also cleaned up  the url for the pixel art.  Instead of...
http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixels/icons/icons/icon2000.asp
we now have...
http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/2000.htm

Another note: 1ucas had a great suggestion that we rotate the front page featured "Hall of Fame" with 5 random top 100 pics. I think it's much better this way.

If you do have suggestions for how to improve the design please post in the forum or respond to this news item if you prefer.

The site and email server will be down for roughly four hours tomorrow (Wednesday July 13th 2AM-6AM PST) while the servers are physically relocated to another facility. Please don't worry if you happen to see a downed site during that window. For those of you with PJ email accounts please note that you will not be able to send or receive emails during the down time.

Finally decided to boost up avatar size another bit (with a little prodding by Wolverine).  The max dimensions for your avatar is now 64 width by 64 height. Perhaps when the site is redesigned we'll bump it up to 100x100.

We've finally released the new search tools for the pixel art gallery.  You can enter a keyword, filter by number of colors, image dimensions or whether the image is animated, transparent or isometric. With these search tools in place there is nothing that can stop us!!!

While we're on the subject of development I'd like to mention that we are doing our best to work out the "autologin" issues on the gallery site that some people are encountering.  Please bear with us while we work through it and report any login issues to sedgemonkey. 

Last but not least, we just want y'all to know that we will be putting out a pixel e-magazine and we are very happy that there are so many PJ members willing to pitch in. Hopefully we'll get it rolling very soon. If you have any ideas to contribute please post them in the forum under the existing thread.

Some of you are too young to remember just how big a superstar Mr. T really was back in the 80s (the guy had a cartoon AND a cereal named after him).  If you have ever wondered what made him so appealing to the youth of the world here are a couple quick videos to get you up to speed...
