The Marathon Story Page has an interesting update.
Are the Marathon sounds that we have all become so familiar with copyrighted?
The Mill posted some new files. It seems that
we are now able to better handle everyone's needs. If you do encounter a problem
while trying to download a plug-in from the The
Mill, make sure to let us know.
I am currently taking applications for a new Myth maintainer at Bungie.org. If you
feel that you have some experience in maintaining a website then please email.
The Bungie/Oni Hotline Server is starting to take off. We have had many visitors
and you will probably find some of your friends there. The Oni/Bungie.org HL server
is located on hltracker.com, or, you can just use hl.bungie.org for the address.

The Marathon Trilogy box set seems to be coming
to an end. The Story page reports
some interesting information from Bungie concerning its life expentency.
The PM Archive
has been updated. Very hard to find right now, but, in time we will provide a better
link to this new site.
As reported yesterday, The Mill posted news
concerning ownership of upload files, etc. No sooner had I posted that info here,
then, a good friend of the Marathon community emailed to report that his file had
been uploaded with someone else's name. Be careful people, this is a sure fire way
to get yourself removed from The Mill.
As reported yesterday, the Oni site was supposed to go up today. Due to a server
going down last night, it's been pushed back 24 hours. : (

Hmm. Wasn't yesterday the 9th? Or did I just skip that day? You know with all our
network and hardware problems the past 10 days, it wouldn't surprise me. A big thank
you goes to Claude Errera, while I was trying to keep the network up, he was able
to "pick up the extra load", thanks Claude!
A very "rare" editorial today. If it is of interest, then go ahead and
Another submission concerning the "entire"
game with no cheats! I remember how special it was when I finally finished and also
how disappointed I was in the helicopter seen at the end. Wonder if it would be possible
to add a better helicopter cut scene at the end. Probably would, but no PID editor.
What did happen to the Marathon 2 Rave edition? While we're at it, what happened
to the Marathon 2 patch? The Story page
has all the answers for the curious.
Another Myth site going by the wayside?
The Mill climbs over 30 thousand hits.
Stern words from the FrigidMan concerning ownership
Is it finally going to happen? We've been reading about here for over two weeks.
Yes, make sure to check back tomorrow for at least a part of the new Oni site.
Who's running that site anyway?? You think you know?? Follow the email
link on the Blam page. And to save a lot of time, NO, it's not me!

The Story page reveals the true identity
of "The Soul" today. There is also a very good writeup concerning the Marathon
The Orphanage has gotten an update
today. Thanks to John there are some new files from Marathon Edge along with some
MOTM, maybe I missed this a couple
of days ago, but there is a new map up at the MOTM page. I haven't had a chance to
play it, but those that have are very impressed with it.
The Archives has new files posted. A continutaion
of a previously released demo along with the new Marathon Map Viewer.
The Mill has become so popular in it's short
existence that we are beginning to experience some "overload" problems.
The number of downloads are really starting to mount up. Please be aware that we
are working on this problem and we should soon have a new workaround up and running.
In my quest to get the Oni site back up, different parts of the site are now starting
to come back online. Today, the Oni HL Server is now back online. You can find it
at hltracker.com or hl.bungie.org. The Bungie press CD from their press pak that
they had at E3 is there and you might just find a few other interesting things.
The Myth page has some cool links to a interesting
"hands on" article at Mac Central along with the latest Bungie.net password
Marathon Scenario news updated
along with the Story page. A former
Bungie employee sets the story straight on a few things.

You have probably tried to hit www.bungie.org within the last 24 hours and gotten
some type of error message. We have had some very big hardware failures here, and
since last Thursday, we have been trying to run on a "thread".
I believe that we are now back up and serving, and we are on a faster pipe now as
well. : )
Sorry for any problems that the downtime may have caused you.
Our Oni at bungie.org 2.0 is just about done now. The overhaul has been interrupted
wtih the hardware failures, but, with some help from members of bungie.org, it now
only lacks content. Should be very, very soon.
In the meantime, visit Alex Okitas new home page.
While you are there, look real close to the image at the right. "Alien
Pipes"....nawh, couldn't be.
Let us know if you see a resemblence. Jump over to the Oni
Scenarios page is updated
again. Thanks to Ruggers replacement while he is honeymooning.
TheMarathon Story page has been updated
since my last post. Continuing news on Blam and........
The Mill keeps pulling in the hits. Check out
the lastest counts. New Myth news posted along with some interesting posts on the
Myth forums at bungie.org.

There's an interesting movie containing some behind-the-scenes stuff from E3 over
at Bungie.net. (There are two versions, one
a bit bigger than the other. Both can be found on Bungie's ftp
site, as well.)
And what's going on over at the Blam! site?
Looks like someone's been keeping busy...
