Ask Dr. Dre(ad): October 2001 Mailbag

Hello all and welcome to my little shack of questions, the virtual building of troubled queries, the big sea of… erm… damn, need another word for questions. Forgotten. Never mind. Anyway, I had to take a little leave for a while, as blatantly Dreadknux is promising big things for my clinic, but he hasn’t even done a bit, so I left for a while, and NOW it’s all done. Just bides his time. Continue reading Ask Dr. Dre(ad): October 2001 Mailbag

Now, let the doctor check up on your Sonic problem.

TSS UPDATE: Topcities Catches Music Account Bother

I decided to open a new Topcities account, because if I put the new midis in my current one, there won’t be any room left for those quality pages I keep coming up with ;P So that’s what I did. I updated with the news, and soon after Topcities deleted my new account, along with some other innocents. Why? Only God knows, it seems. Next month, I will sort this thing out, this is getting out of hand. Continue reading TSS UPDATE: Topcities Catches Music Account Bother

Dreadknux’s Diaries: Final day of Sonic Site Awards Phase 1…

This is a series of personal blogs written by Dreadknux during the formative years of The Sonic Stadium. It chronicles significant events in the website’s early life.

The final day of the Sonic Site Awards Phase 1 – where fans submit their own sites (democratically) for nomination into award categories. Now that this stage is over, I deliberately closed the awards page so that no more cheating and submitting could be done. Still, some people managed to take advantage of the Universal Form to get their point across… The Stadium’s bagged well over 2,500 at this time, a truly great achievement.

Dreadknux’s Diaries: Gone Music Crazy!

This is a series of personal blogs written by Dreadknux during the formative years of The Sonic Stadium. It chronicles significant events in the website’s early life.

This month, I spent the time promoting the new release of my Radio Station, with the new name I made up in June – Sega Sonic Radio. I am in the process of making a separate website for it, and I uploaded a lot more MP3s. One step at a time eh? Also, I managed to grab about 300 new midis to slap into the Music Zone. The site is getting more popular by the minute! In this month, the Hit Counter has surpassed 2,000! Again, thanks to everyone for visiting, I will treat you – honest.

Ask Dr. Dre(ad): July 2001 Mailbag

Welcome to Ask Dr. Dre(ad), you are now in my clinic. I am of course, Dr. Dread. You can call me Dr. Dre if you like, but I’m a doctor, not a rapper. Let’s just get that out of the way… Hmmm? Why am I here? Because of you. Yes, you. I know that, sometime in the not too distant future, you will have at least one question about Sonic the Hedgehog. A burning query that you just can’t shake off… but then you can’t be bothered to find the answer, and this leads to trauma. As well as constant head injuries involving a spade. Believe me, in my experience, it has happened. Continue reading Ask Dr. Dre(ad): July 2001 Mailbag

TSS Update: Moving On Up, Moving On Out…

Hi you all. I feel fantastic!!! Know why? Because, I’ve buggered off from my old school to a spangly new College! Ya….y? Excellent news, I flew right through my GCSE exams it seems, with my lowest grade a C. I literally have about 9-10 GCSEs, but it doesn’t really feel like I’ve done anything at all. I still feel like… me. And, I also feel great because I’ve changed the look of this place a little, and something about Sonic SatAM you may want to read… Continue reading TSS Update: Moving On Up, Moving On Out…

Dreadknux’s Diaries: The Un-De-Fragging Thing

This is a series of personal blogs written by Dreadknux during the formative years of The Sonic Stadium. It chronicles significant events in the website’s early life.

I had to defrag my computer, it was annoying, I tell you, so I couldn’t not only use the PC, but defrag was not even working properly! Three days and it hadn’t even reached 2%! Just kept going back and forward from 0% to 1% then 0% again >_<. I managed to give it a break and check my e-mails. Jesus! The amount of emails I had, I had never gotten anything like this amount before. Dead chuffed I was, as I counted all the submissions. Continue reading Dreadknux’s Diaries: The Un-De-Fragging Thing

Dreadknux’s Diaries: The Birth of the Awards to Change a Universe…

This is a series of personal blogs written by Dreadknux during the formative years of The Sonic Stadium. It chronicles significant events in the website’s early life.

With the new look Sonic Stadium now open for some time, I thought it was time for a killer app. I wanted to make something else that involved the whole Sonic online community. Most of my other projects have not been so popular, so I decided to go for something that everyone will be interested in. Then it hit me. An awards ceremony. That’ll be great, I thought. Continue reading Dreadknux’s Diaries: The Birth of the Awards to Change a Universe…

This is a series of personal blogs written by Dreadknux during the formative years of The Sonic Stadium. It chronicles significant events in the website’s early life.

YEEEEEEEEHAH! Someone’s become visitor 1000! Unfortunately, no-one owned up to it for some time though, so I’m setting the record to 1,100 hits. Hey, it’s just as memorable! Just wanted to savour this tasty feeling, even though no-one sent me anything about it. Maybe they couldn’t see the hit counter…

TSS Update: Birthday Bonanza, Sonic Site Awards Launched

My Birthday has passed, and I am extremely happy. Not only does the Linkin Park album rock to hell (well, I kinda knew that anyway) but I also bagged myself a Game Boy Advance. I’ve yet to play any GBA games for it though – I could only afford a trade in, but I still got some of my GBC games. Just gotta get a GBA game next week then. Sigh. Continue reading TSS Update: Birthday Bonanza, Sonic Site Awards Launched

Dreadknux’s Diaries: The Kick-Ass Relaunch

This is a series of personal blogs written by Dreadknux during the formative years of The Sonic Stadium. It chronicles significant events in the website’s early life.

Here I am, uploading all the files through CuteFTP into Angelfire, taking bloody ages because there’s so much new stuff to upload. Then I realise that I have no more room. ARGH! I was in panic, I had one night to upload all my things. Then I noticed Topcities that did 150MB of space. Crikey! I signed up, uploaded, and the day was saved! Continue reading Dreadknux’s Diaries: The Kick-Ass Relaunch

Fan Game Review: Sonic Wars

Sonic Wars, released by Diablo on Sonic’s Birthday (that explains the familiar icons appearing at the title screen), is your average Sonic platforming adventure. But, although this seems good for a game that’s rushed (hey, it wasn’t me that said it, Diablo admitted it ^_^), there are a few flaws that stop this game from getting as good as it should have been. Continue reading Fan Game Review: Sonic Wars

Sonic’s 10th Anniversary: Sega’s Rivals

In the past, Sega has had tough competition from an old respected rival called Nintendo. Consequently, Sonic and Mario were constantly fighting for the Number One spot in people’s lives (of course, the hedgehog won). But aside from Ninty, who have been Sega and Sonic’s rivals, past and new? Well, here’s the lowdown on the bad boys. Continue reading Sonic’s 10th Anniversary: Sega’s Rivals
