ABOUT THIS PAGE

You'll find here an history of all the updates I've done to the website since its creation. Of course, some information can be now obsolete, but I thought that you might be interested to know how the website evolved through the years to become like it is today.

If you want to be kept informed when major modifications will be made to this website, you can subscribe to the newsletter, but you first need to create a member account.

You can also use the RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds of this website to automatically receive the news in your web browser, mail client, or any other RSS-compatible software.

Two feeds are available: one can be used to receive the news in English, while the other can be used to receive them in French. They're updated each time a news is being published on the website. You can choose to receive one of these feeds, or you can also subscribe to both.

To use the website's RSS feeds on your favorite software, you can use these direct links:

With most software, you can add RSS feeds using the RSS icon, clicking on it, and selecting the feed you want to use. Some examples:

  • With Internet Explorer, the icon is located on the upper right toolbar (you can use the Alt+X shortcut)
  • With Firefox & Opera, the icon is on the right of the address bar.

Most RSS-compatible software also offer an option to re-download the feeds periodically (eg. each day, each week...) so that you can get updated news on a regular basis, without having to do anything else.

03-17-2003 (4.6) : Webmasters: increase the popularity of your website!
02-13-2003 (4.5) : Site security and compatibility enhancements.

This first 2003 update focuses on greatly enhancing the site's security and compatibility with other web browsers than Internet Explorer.

Indeed, thanks to a huge number of modifications on all pages, they're now able to detect the web browser you're using, to deliver contents which are compatible with it, by, for instance, removing code which is only supported by Internet Explorer. Hence, Arachnosoft is once again compatible with Netscape, Opera and other web browsers. Please note that it remains optimized for Internet Explorer.

Also, pages should be far much faster to load than with the previous update, because I came back to frames to display the site instead of layers. As a result, each time you'll go to a new page, only the right side of the website will be changed, the rest being loaded only once when you enter the site: the time required to download the pages is thus significantly reduced, as you may have guessed.

I suppose that you've noticed the enhanced portal page when entering on the website... My father thought that the links to enter on the website were not visible enough... so I corrected that, and added by the way a short description of what can be found on the website... Don't hesitate to give me your opinion about this new layout.

On Rapid'Autorun's webpage, I've posted a very positive review of the software, who was published in the January 2003 issue of the Windows News magazine. Next time, I'll also post all reviews which were published in several issues of the Freelog magazine.

Apart from that, you'll find several new links on the corresponding page, the new websites being, for a most part, the personal webpages of some of my classmates who will recognize themselves ;-)

I also inform you that the IT (ImpulseTracker) versions of my music are now available on The Mod Archive website. Do not forget to visit my Artist page as well!

Several other small enhancements are also here for this relatively important site update: the estimated file download times are now available on the download page, the news are back into the top scrolling marquee... without counting the usual bug fixes I'm doing at each site update...

To finish, I inform you that I'm currently working on the new versions of Rapid'Autorun and Calories & Menus, which will be far much powerful and feature-loaded than the previous ones, and which will maybe support skins as well. Some screenshots of what they currently look like are available.

Please note however that these new versions are not ready to be released. Indeed, I'm quite busy because of my studies (I take high-school exams in some months), and I've less and less time for my IT activities. The website may not be updated as well for a relatively long time. Until then, I hope that you'll enjoy this new site update, and see you soon!
