Dreamcast? Art?!

Well what do you know?! 3 hours and 6 cups of coffee after I embarked on my Odyssey to give the 'Yard it's own unique logo, I've done it!! Look! Up there!

To be fair, it only took me about 10 minutes to actually create the thing in photoshop, but it was a freaking nightmare trying to work out which bits of the template's HTML I needed to mess about with. Hair tearing just isn't the phrase. And to avoid the original 'Dreamcast Junkyard' text logo appearing over the new image, I've had to rename this blog '.' (yep, it's a full stop).

The image above is taken from this website, Gamingredients, which features a decent Fall Of Sega article and also an interesting collection of 'arty' shots of the Dreamcast and Saturn. It doesn't appear to have been updated for about a year, but it makes for a pleasant sideline. I also discovered this rather interesting site (with the strangest URL I've ever seen) that has info on Dreamcast programming, burning DC images and getting CD-Rs to run. Check it out peeps.

Apart from that, Phantasy Star Online still ain't arrived, but on a lighter note my review of Speed Devils online has been published so feel free to have a gander by clicking on this link. As ever - all comments are very much appreciated. Except those ones from Frank8888 who explains that my site is "Good, with much discussion...perhaps you'd like to buy some time-share real estate in California..."

Suddenly, comment verification has become a most interesting prospect.

Btw, if you want, I'd be happy to modify your code to not print the name over the image, that way your site doesnt have to be called "."

I had comment verification on for a while once, but soon went back to normal because having to check if ou have comments gets annoying, and it's just as easy to just delete the spm posts when they show up here.

Oh, come on... Comment verification just sucks and as (the rather wise) gagaman noted, it'll just get annoying and boring....

Tomleecee said...

Thanks elderly. It took me a while and a lot of messing about with the HTML, but I got it to work in the end!

Tomleecee said...

Patrick O'Connor - I don't know how to contact you with those details! Could you email me via my profile please? Your offer of help is much appreciated!

Well, I guess I'll have to try to mess with Blogger's damn code so I can get my stupid banner at the top of the page versus the bottom where no one sees it.

And nice new banner!
