Woo-hoo! In response to an undisclosed offer that may or may not have involved beer, Steevil has returned to the Halo SETI Marines. We're back on track for a March break-in to the top 100 club teams!

The clan formerly known as U.S.C.M. has moved to a new server, and gotten a new name: Massive Damage Incorporated. They're currently looking for new members... so if you're looking for a group to join, take a look! Pax.

A new German news site has come online. Check out the Fightin' Guardians... they'll keep you informed! (If you want to skip the flash intro, you can jump right to the Halo site.)

Halo SETI Marine goes AWOL! The loss of a 445-unit member hits the team hard... We need to make up for it! (Welcome to Frog in a Box, who brings in 45 units... definitely softens the blow!) Details to be found on the 24 hour stats page.

Thanks to Damien Sorresso, who sends us a new desktop pic for our Wallpaper page. Very simple... but noone's submitted it before. Pax.

Mark Naylor writes to tell us that there was a small review of Halo on the (presumably British) TV program Cybernet. If anyone has more information, we'd love to hear about it!

We've been having a touch of trouble with our FTP, so this is a bit late, today... but the Halo SETI Marines are kicking into high gear. Almost a 50% increase in daily stats received today, thanks in large part to the addition of Mr Froste to the team. And the team has a new unit leader... Jjaro technology triumphs again! You'll find all the details on the 24 hour stats page.

New grist added to our Fan Fiction area. In addition... you'll find a cool new feature. Next to each entry, you'll find a small link: "More by this author". Clicking this link will bring up a page containing all the work that author has submitted... in order. (Makes serial stories much easier to read.) If you find this feature useful, let us know... we'll implement it in other areas of the site.

The Marathon's Story page takes two of Bungie's Halo web buttons sticks them together and gets... Well you better find out for yourself. Bungie's attention to detail or just a warped mind?

We are attempting to trace the interloper who hacked yesterday's SETI stats page. Hopefully today's SETI stats will be more secure. Halo marines are on full alert!

Magh Tuireadh told us that he didn't have the space to put up the medium size of his Halo Re-Mix, so we've decided to help him out. If you want something better than the 10 meg version, but can't handle the 48 meg version... give the 20 meg version a try. (It's exactly the same movie as the big one, but smaller, so don't bother just for completeness.) Hope this helps someone!
