Halo Screen Shots – new code, and a new home

April 30th, 2008
Sorahn's Halo Screen Shots is a great place to store your screenshots - all the thumbs show up on a single page, there's no rigamarole involved in viewing the large versions, and you can see many collections quickly. And now, Halo Screen Shots is part of the family - we're hosting them. (This doesn't mean their old hosting was unreliable - it simply means that as long as we're around, they have a home.) If you haven't visited, now's a good time! We've added a random screen, along with some statistics on the collection, to our Spotlight box over on the right; keep an eye on the growth!(Louis Wu 18:11:15 UTC)
