435 Web Wars
Beginning May 19, 2005...
WARNING: Java pages ahead! Stupid midi files too...oh no!
Web Wars is a goofy Star Wars Parody we started in 1999. It features the amateur radio operators of the 147.435 Mhz repeater in a Star Wars type theme. At the time there was a lot of hype about the upcoming release of Star Wars Episode I The Phantom Menace. Basically it's users of the 435 Repeater photoshopped into Star Wars pictures. The Idea was not mine actually. It started when Tim Thompson, W6DCE found these cool Star Wars applets on the web from IoN CHeN at 6sense.com. Being the huge Star Wars fan that I am, I liked them so much, I bought them and have been using them ever since. The applets are on all the introduction pages of the Web Wars Section, 7 episodes to date. The photoshopping of the photos is rude and crude and I'm no artist. We also found these applets by Dario Sciacca (www.dseffects.com) and were using Cool Page for an publisher. At the time when we started this section, the theme "Web Wars" or "Ham Wars" as it has evolved into, began as a "rebuttal" to other things that were being published by Rick on w6nut.com. All in all, Rick's site was very creative and funny and the web wars were fun while it lasted. Now it's more of an archive since I rarely get a chance to update it. Nor do I have a reason to, since w6nut.com is defunked. Come on back Rick, the puppetmasters are waiting. If you have any photoshopped art you would link to contribute you may contact me and I'll try to get it up on the site. ~ w6dek ~
This is an index of the /webwars/ directory. The pages are linked as a chain but I will be getting around to listing them all here...eventually. This section requires Java.
* The Star Wars Scrolling Text Applets are coded for for 1024 X 768 Screen Resolution or higher ONLY. I got rid of the detection scripts and all the other screen resolution pages. If you're still surfing the web at 800 X 600 it's time to get a clue.
