We need some help at bungie.org, there has been a terrible transporter
accident. It seems Jim Ruiz at Bungie Software was teleporting 7 Action
Sack icons to Steve Campbell for safe keeping.
There was a sudden ion storm (a regular Nor'easter with massive sun spots, worm holes
and silly string) and despite cross circuiting to "B" the 7 icons were
scattered to the 7 corners of bungie.org. We looked everywhere, but we can't find
and we just plain give up.
If you can find all 7 of the Bungie Action Sack icons hidden at the http://www.bungie.org
pages and then be the FIRST to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the page
URLs of all seven Action
Sack icons (if it is on a framed page give the page name), Jim Ruiz will be
so grateful to you that he will purloin a Mac Action Sack from the Bungie
Software Vault O Carnage and send it to your home.
The Action Sack contains the fabulous classic Bungie Software games of: Minotaur,
Abuse, Pathways into Darkness, Marathon, Marathon 2 and Marathon Infinity.
Employees of Bungie Software, bungie.org, and their families are ineligible
to enter this contest. So they can just eat my shorts.

to see whats going on.

The Story page has continued it's
daily updating, in spite of the holidays. The collected knowledge out there has sent
in some interesting facts that might sound very, very familiar.
The Orphanage had some great files,
but now they don't have them? Don't try to figure that out, and, if you're interested,
jump over and take a look.
The Archives has new files, who says this
place stops for a holiday?
Sorry for the Blam blowup yesterday. The Blam
forum had so many posts that it finally just collapsed. No, not really. : )
Many Oni updates coming today, as soon as I can start to get caught up from the holiday.
Check back for the latest.
The Oni forums will be getting a
"visual" overhaul this week. You should see no downtime and it should be
done seamlessly. But, if you experience any problems, kow that they will only be
The Walter Scripts are now added. One in there
I had originally missed. Thanks!

We hope you're all having a wonderful 4th of July weekend. Because this is a pretty
major US holiday, there's not too much activity on the Bungie.org pages... but we'll
be back and updating furiously by Tuesday morning! Meanwhile, you can grab some of
the newest files at the Archives,
or read the Story page updates (which
don't seem to stop for very much). Happy 4th to you all!

Some interesting speculation about the mechwarrior in Oni on the Marathon's
Story page today. Jump over and take a peek...
A bunch of new files at the Archives recently... a little something for everyone.
As mentioned on the Story page
and the Blam forums, our own estimable
Orphanage manager, John Zero,
has created some Cortana-inspired
art. Check it out!
The Mill posted statistics for the month
of June. All I can say is "wow".
Myth at Bungie.org reports of a new Myth
2 Handbook. Worth a look...

The Cortana message has filled The Story
page with many responses today. They are very interesting, along with an AOL'er
that tracks the mail from steart to end.
MOTM has a new map up today. If you
are at all familiar with IRC #bungie, then the name of this map is quite unique.
A few updates today and The
Mill just keeps serving out files. The amount of megs we are serving out is really
starting to climb. Yesterday we served out over 4 gigs. Thanks and enjoy!
Interesting facts concerning the original "18" and The
Labyrinth is added today. I always wanted to know how they did that, every time
you went into the Labyrinth it seemed that everything was different, or was it?
I am going to put the newSuperSmall Oni Trailer
up in some different formats. Please let me know
if you have trouble getting this file.
