Must come up with a fitting tribute to Circus Maximus.

"Cyberspace - The Final Frontier. These are the voyages of Circus Maximus. It's continuing mission: to explore bold new games. To seek out new players and new VGA Planets scenarios. To boldy go where no website has gone before ..."

Nah ... to cheesy. :trek:

"A long time ago, in a DOS based game far, far away .."

Nah ... no one will believe that one. :jedismily:

"Fleeing from the Windows tyranny, Commander Havok leads a rag-tag fleet of fugitive DOS gamers on a lonely quest. A shining website, known as Circus Maximus"

Hmmmm ... still needs work. :cylon:

"It was the dawn of the Third Age of VGA Planets. It began in the Earth year 2005 with the founding of the last of the great VGAP websites, located deep in the vastness of the internet. Circus Maximus was a dream given form, a dream of a web site dedicated to VGA Planets, where gamers from different lands could meet in virtual competion. It was a port of call for warriors, philosophers, lurkers, gamers, geeks, and travellers from hundreds of games. A place of competition for hundreds of gamers. A shining beacon in the internet, all alone in the night.

"The year is 2007. The name of the place is Circus Maximus"


\:D/


Seriously, ][avok - congratulation on your second year! Many, MANY thanks for providing us a home on the web for our VGAP madness!!

I understand that denial is the first stage...

And on the actual topic, ditto the dittos (dittoes?) on all the above -- congrats on another excellent year!

I noticed it a bit late but...

WHAT? ONLY TWO YEARS???
The reason why I'm surprised is because it feels as if this site has been online since 1994 or something. I've tried many different hosting sites but never felt so comfortable before. A tribute to CM. May it last forever.

My English is a bit rusty but I'll give it a try



...in the turn 2525
with winplan still on drive
if ][avok can survive
they may fight

in the turn 3535
ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies
everything you think, do and say,
is in the turn you get today

in the turn 4545
ain't gonna need your probes, won't need warp 9 drives
for your ships you won't find a crew
nobody's gonna look at you

in the turn 5555
your arms are hanging limp at your sides
your legs got nothing to do
AutoTroll is doing that for you

in the turn 6565
ain't gonna need no husband, won't need no wife
you pick your friends, pick your partners too
from a player's list, ][avok made for you

in the turn 7510
if ][avok's pausing, he oughta make it by then
maybe he'll look around himself and say
guess it's time for a host delay

in the turn 8510
][avok's gonna shake his robot head
he'll either say I'm pleased where CM has been
or tear it down and start again

in the turn 9595
I'm kinda wonderin if players are still alive
they're taking everything ][avok can give
and they ain't put back nothing - whoho-oh

Now it's been the 10,000th turn
no more fuel, our homeworlds burn
for what we never knew
not one turn came through

but through eternal night
robbing here and there a fight
so very far away
maybe it's only yesterday

in the turn 2525
if the player's are still alive
if ][avok can survive
they may fight
