Site Updates
« on: June 18, 2006, 02:18:15 AM »

As the section "Site Updates" will be removed in the new website (due to the lack of updates since 2005), the posts will be archived here as sort of a remembrance.

The archiving starts from the latest post and is separated in different forum posts by the years posted (2004 and 2003 are divided into 2 parts due to the large number of posts).

2006

25th May 2006, Thursday | Posted by olibia
Well I guess today marks a special entry for the Pure Rock site. We have reached 100k on the counter! By the time I remembered to visit the site, the counter had already jumped to 100003. And since Midnight Son claims the 100kth Pure Rocker spot, CONGRATS TO YOU! Oh and remind us to have a prize or some sort set for the 200kth visitor okay? Wink

2005

4th September 2005, Sunday | Posted by olibia
Well yesterday was quite eventful really; us few eastsiders from Pure Rock took a trip to the west! And then there were the bus trips, the crazy (dry) bus humour, the let's be amatuerish and take a picture with our handphones beside the professional photographers and their very expensive looking cameras, the fretting over whether to have a Very Long Name published on site, and the cat with claws in the train. Okay seriously... IT WAS DEW AKA PUSSYCAT'S WEDDING! HOW EXCITING IS THAT! Side note, remember to ask if they had jaw aches from all that smiling for pictures. CONGRATS AGAIN DEW!! AND EADDY!!

22nd August 2005, Monday | Posted by olibia
Sorry for having ignored this section for so long, but HELLO AGAIN. We are back with a madness a certain greatness has bestowed upon us on the evening of 16th August '05 and even if no one reads this, we will roll in madness OURSELVES. Pure Rock finally has something (remotely) related to Singapore that we can be really proud about - Slipknot being allowed onto our soil! Go puke all over yourselves and enjoy the visuals and literature!

3rd April 2005, Sunday | Posted by scuzzybum
Yes... Pure Rock closing down was an April Fool prank. Would have reverted the site back sooner but I was just plain lazy. So sue me? Like I would give half a fart to anyone that diss us. To the rest of the people, thanks for the support!

2004 - 2nd half of the year

27th September 2004, Monday | Posted by scuzzybum
We have a lack of metal gig reviews recently and this time I have good news for all the local metalheads! We welcome Xyrax9000 to the team who would be reviewing metal gigs for us Tongue Check out his review of Metalfest 2004 held at Woodlands.

6th September 2004, Monday | Posted by scuzzybum
"Articles" section has been seperated into 3 sub-sections, "Articles", "Editorials" and "Satire", to better define the type of article written. Articles will be more about bands and stuff. Editorials will be more opinionated and Satire will be... well, literary work in which human vice or folly is attacked through irony, derision, or wit (took this from the online dictionary Smiley. Midnight SoN has also joined us and has contributed an Editorial.

22nd August 2004, Sunday | Posted by scuzzybum
We sincerely thank Am3thyst for providing 100mb of webspace to Pure Rock. Thanks dude!

21st August 2004, Saturday | Posted by scuzzybum
Syntax is now the 3rd ever metal in-charge of Pure Rock! However, he won't be doing much for now due to his recent enlistment to NS.

16th August 2004, Monday | Posted by scuzzybum
New metal album reviewer, TheSwingThing joins us! Ok, this one may be the most critical Pure Rock has seen, rivalling Den! So local bands, good luck! Check out his review on Flames Of Dignity's demo.

15th August 2004, Sunday | Posted by scuzzybum
Den will now be in charge of public relations for Pure Rock! So if you have any complaints, mail her and she will be more than happy to entertain you Tongue She will still contribute reviews/interviews (I think!).

14th August 2004, Saturday | Posted by scuzzybum
Pure Rock's most critical (IMO) reviewer, Den, has joined the fray! Local bands beware! Tongue Her first contribution is an album review of the compilation, "The 3 Letter Sessions B".

Pure Rock is officially 1 year old today! YAY! At the time of posting this message, we have 22273 hits over the past year! I dunno about you guys but I feel it's already a great achievement by the site Tongue Anyway from today onwards, we will be offering 100 mb of space to local bands to serve their MP3z... wish we had more space to offer Sad

13th March 2004, Saturday | Posted by scuzzybum
Sad news as Am3thyst decides to leave Pure Rock... we wish him all the best! And so now we are looking for a new metal in-charge. If interested, please contact us.

We welcome a new member, Pussycat aka Dew which also does vocals for Fairies Wears Boots! She just wrote her 1st article last week and would be contributing mainly articles to the site. Dhalif (Singapore's own guitar god!) will also contribute regularly.

26th April 2003, Saturday | Posted by scuzzybum
I'm back! Added another band to the "Bands" section. The information of the bands listed is to the best of my knowledge and so if there are any mistakes, please don't hesitate to tell me about it. The long story about the bands is directly lifted from their respective sites Smiley Will go on to clean up some html codings before I add more shit.

22nd April 2003, Tuesday | Posted by scuzzybum
My free hosting seems to be always down for some reason. Sorry for the inconveniences! I have at last added one band to the "Bands" section. Check it out Smiley Won't be able to work on the site till after my exams this friday. Wish me luck!

20th April 2003, Sunday | Posted by scuzzybum
Tried to resolve some bugs that visitors had when viewing the site. Please specify the problem at the tagboard if anymore is encountered. Thanks! Need local bands information (lineup, pictures, misc.) to add to the "Bands" section and would appreciate it if someone would send me some.

19th April 2003, Saturday | Posted by scuzzybum
Made the "About Us" section so head there and check out why we exist and find out who is involved Smiley Gonna find some information about local bands to add to the "Bands" section soon. Anyway, we are gonna start a section for featured band of the month (if we get any response!) so if you are interested, mail us. Hope to hear from you soon! #purerock @ Galaxynet is registered so you guys can go there to chat.

18th April 2003, Friday | Posted by scuzzybum
Today, I added a real counter. Cheers for me! The website is also made scrollable. The navigation links work too but they don't lead to anywhere yet except for "Home". Next, I will be working on either the "About Us" or "Bands" section for the site.

16th April 2003, Wednesday | Posted by scuzzybum
Just completed the "Latest Updates" section for the main page. Progress slow as running out of ideas Smiley Please tag your comments/ideas to help me get more ideas coming. Thanks! Will be updating this section as I add more crap. By the way, the above links don't work yet. Err... basically, nothing works yet except for the tagboard. I will inform you guys when I make them work. PEACE!
