The Konoko "naked" or "clothed" debate finally comes to a close.
Read about it on theOni site.
The Story page has some great news
on updates. Who says Marathon is dead? Although it's been a while, the updates listed
today should be a great help to all those that are versed in Forge.
The Scenario News and Recruits
were updated very, very late last night. So, if you missed it, I thought I would
go ahead and post the links again.
Some great Myth updates today. The Myth 2 for
Linux is now in beta testing, go read all about it.
Pages are added that house the Oni art and some of
the Oni screenshots. Make sure to take a look.
We now have a new Myth maintainer. You will probably be hearing more about this from
our great PR man, Gary Simmons. It was tough with all the applicants we received,
but, I feel we got a good maintainer. Be looking for updates again at the Myth site.

Some niceupdates along with another magazine
ad. Forgot to add this into the regular update today. Jennifer Ho has some interesting
remarks again concerning Oni.
Tonight a very good movie on TNT will be airing. I know this has nothing to do
with Bungie, but, it does have a lot to do with Macintosh and Windows. The
Pirates of Silicon Valley air's tonight at 8pm (cst) 9pm (est). A good reason
to watch the tube!
Loren Petrich has uploaded some PID documents at the (Oni) Bungie.org HL Server.
These will enable you to read the map files, etc.
The Marathon Story Page is posting
some cool news about Oni. I really don't understand why people are not writing into
Oni with Oni news, but, at least Oni stuff is coming in. Well worth the read.
Still looking for a Myth maintainer. Let
us know if you are interested.

TheMarathon Story Page has reported
today concerning some Oni news. There is also an update that is quite unique. Is
Bungie going to the Blammo code now? Is this taking the place of "Blam"?
The Marathon VidMaster page has
been updated. What, and people say these are "old" games?
The forums atBlam are getting pretty "hot".
Bungie.com is even posting and in a nice way suggesting that my news post the other
day is, well, jump over and read for yourself.
More and cool elements are updated to thePID
Sector Level Diagram.
The Mill has some new films, but, they are all
corrupted. Make sure that if you are using QT 4 that you upload with the correct
pref's. "Automatic" doesn't cut it sometimes.
The first 8 archive pages have been added tooni.bungie.org.
Along with some cool news.

Oni at bungie.com
The Oni site at bungie got an overhaul today.
Pretty nice, some interesting facts along with a couple of new shots, etc.
Oni at bungie.org
Again the Alien Pipes. No, not really, but IMHO, it sure looks close. Take
Happy Happy, Carnage Carnage. Remember this level? You had to get past all four rooms.
How many of us tried to keep going back and found the doors locked? : (
Censorship? You be the judge.
Marathon Story page expands on Robert
The Marathon Orphanage has received
a bunch of new files. All the categories are starting to fill in. If you need or
want to donate any files, make sure you visit this site.
Scenario news updated. Welcome
back Rugger. OR, should we say Mr. Rugger? Whichever, congratulations!!!
A couple of updates and additions to theMill.
A pretty big update to a solo file. Make sure you are on a fast connection, it's
a large file.
Myth at bungie. org is still looking for a maintainer.
I have received some emails, but, we are still taking more emails. If you are interested,
let us know.
I won't be making any decisions till next week.

For many years, Hamish and myself have been trying to get the PID Editor from Bungie. Matt Soell worked very hard in trying to retrieve it, but, as it stands today, it is still lost.
The PID Page today shows us a "visual" representation of what the levels look like thanks to Loren Petrich. It's probably best to jump over, since I am giving away some of the details.
I decided to go ahead and put the main page up today. The other pages will be coming within the next 24 to 48 hours. I apologize for the four week downtime, but, it turns out that it was in some ways a good thing. In my attempt to put everything back together I came "back" across many items that I forgot that I had archived. So, in some strange type of way, you will get to see some of these images that date all the way back to E3 in 1998.

Hot Blam News.
One of our Bungie Org spies today was out in California and was lucky enough to be
in the right place at the right time. This bungie org spy reports that while he was
at Sony Studios, he was invited to witness a brand new iMac commercial that was being
recorded. The director in charge asked him to please leave the studio and he asked
why, he was then told that it was because of some "secret" software that
was being used.
Our bungie.org spy then just happened to look at the directors clipboard, and, on
the top was the word "B L A M".
Here is the report reprinted:
I happened to be at Sony Studios today with a relative of mine. We walked into a
commercial that was being taped featuring the iMac. I was then told that I would
have to leave. I asked why, and they said it was for new software that was secret,
but they could tell me it was a game. I was then able to look on his clipboard, (they
guy telling me I couldn't come in), it said Blam!
What do you think. New
Apple commercial with Blam being played?

Some pretty big updates today! The real
source of some of the most famous Marathon sayings are exposed, or, maybe revealed.
A couple of updates in the last two days,
but the biggest one ties in with the above. Make sure to voice your opinion on how
all this ties in.
Our last two updates from our Myth maintainer,
Pie. We are still looking for a Myth maintainer for here at bungie.org. Benefits
include a free meal, compliments of the bungie org crew. A new car., compliments
Bungie Software and 7 copies of Marathon 1. : )
The Mill has many new files, but two are
well worth your attention. These files just might receive the biggest number of downloads
