End of February Madness

  » Posted February 22nd, 2007 by psi29a

We have some more goodness for everyone, Biomega, Berserk, and 3 chapters of Angel Heart! So without further delay…


Next Berserk (284) will be out around April 6th, it is a bit of a long time but at least we have a set date, so all is well.

Also, we want to thank Oblivion for the wicked sick header logo at the top of the blog here. We think it looks bad ass, and feel free to let Oblivion know too. πŸ˜€

We are on the lookout for NHK 34 raw, so if anyone could pop on the forums or leave a comment here we and all NHK fans would be eternally greatful!

Server now has new ram installed and is awaiting transportation to it’s new home. YAY! Thank you all again for your kindness.

Have a great weekend!

EDIT by Eldo:

Thanks a lot for the responses regarding the NHK raw, we now have chapter 34 in our possession.

As for NHK chapter 33, it’s still in the editing stage, since, you know, it’s freaking 32 pages and requires some extensive editing. It should be ready in the next release, scheduled in two weeks. That’s to hold off your thirst for more Berserk.

In addition, we need editors for NHK and Zetman. I doubt I could edit them soon, as real life commitments take priority over hobbies and other entertainment needs. Editors will be tested before we let you join, so you better be experienced. Thanks a lot, folks, always a pleasure giving you guys your manga needs.

New layout

  » Posted February 21st, 2007 by psi29a

As you all probably have noticed already, we are in a state of transition. The first part to get the update was the tracker. Currently the blog which you see now, it obviously isn’t finished and I need to spend a few more hours tweaking it. The banner at the top isn’t final, it is something Eldo threw together which was really nice and I liked it.

I know so people prefer the ‘dark’ atmosphere but that is going to move away from pure ‘dark’ for the sake of readability.

Last project is the forum re-design and that is all dependent on when the phpBB 3 will be released.

Now, if you think you can make a better header image, then by all means take a wack at it. Here is a template psd file I’ve made for everyone.


It can be opened and manipulated in GIMP and in Photoshop.

That is the skinny on what is going on, and we are not done yet. πŸ™‚

Berserk 283 Preview

  » Posted February 16th, 2007 by psi29a

Its nearing that time again, just one more week before Miura lets us savor his epic master piece.

Berserk 283 preview

Thank you all again for your kind generosity, it has certainly helped! The server is here and I’m currently in the process of putting more ram into it and copying the data over. I’m hoping that we will soon have it up and online making the site even faster and more responsive than it is currently.

The server isn’t Evil_Genius‘s but that of Mindwerks who gives us space as non-profit group. Your donations where not just for the server and continued EG hosting on Mindwerks, but a generous donation in helping out groups like Special Love who share the same server as EG.

Special Love is a nonprofit organization that provides cancer families a network of support, made up of other patients and families who know and understand the trials and triumphs of the cancer experience.

Our very own Killfile (from the forums) is a child-hood cancer surviver and helps to maintain SL. Yes, they love the Berserk too. πŸ˜€ So again, we thank you all for helping not only EG out, but Mindwerks and everyone else who shares the server.

Thanks — psi29a

Berserk, BReaction, and Zetman… oh my!

The moment you all have been waiting for. I present to you all, the goods:


The response so far has been fantastic, more than I imagined. We are not done yet, every little bit helps. That being said, thank you guys SO much for helping us out. Words can not express our gratitude for your generosity, it is literally humbling! You guys rock. We are at the half-way mark already! πŸ˜€

The great fund drive for new hardware!

  » Posted February 7th, 2007 by psi29a

We are currently leasing our server hardware for $75/month but the hardware isn’t mine.

That means $75 a month, for 12 months (1 year) is $900 USD a year to keep this place up and running, most of which comes out of my pocket with one third being paid for by spurious donations and google adverts.

So I plan on building one and the cost for that is $525 USD and having it co-located for much cheaper by friends who share the EG passion. πŸ˜€

However, the wife and I would like to re-coup our upfront cost and if you guys could help us out that would be greatly appreciated!

Forum based donation widget.

or if you don’t have a forum account:

Thank you all again for your support and hopefully we can move forward with a smooth transition and my wife and I can breath a little easier by not having to spend $75 a month. πŸ™‚

PS: I’ll post specs of machine later.
