  1. My, how time flies. It is October now, almost time for Halloween, and then it won't be long before Thanksgiving when we're all stuffing our faces full of turkey and pumpkin pie. I hope you're all doing well. @Cyril the Wolf, don't forget about your track. Wouldn't want to disappoint someone.
  2. You know, when this got started I never imagined that this project would continue on for so long. I thought it would go for a year or two and then folks would lose interest. And that would've been okay, because I knew someone else would've picked up the torch and kept it going, or started a different project around the same themes. But sixteen years is a long time. I was 25-years-old when this project started. That it's still going now that I'm 41, and with so many folks still contributing year after year, it's really a special thing here. Even though I only build the page for each new volume, I'm still proud of the work being done by everyone, especially The Coop, who keeps it all going and manages to write his own songs each year. So, I want to thank each and every one of you. Seeing this continue, sixteen years and counting, speaks to the power of the music and to the community. Thank you for keeping this going, every single one of you.
  3. Excellent. *rubs hands together a la Mr. Burns*
  4. I'm okay. Just busy with real world shenanigans. A new design might not wait. I'm either going to shorten the list to simply thr numerical, or, I'll build a flexbox to make a list of clickable front album covers. We'll see. Edit: I've built the new album page and have updated all of the links for each of the pages. Since we're on the subject, it's become rather tedious to update so many pages each year. That said, I'm thinking about evolving to a one page design. Unfortunately, I lack the technical ability to pull this off. I've really been lax in learning development, but I suppose now would be as good a time as any to get back on that horse. Truthfully, the last two years have been hard on everyone, including myself. So, having said that, I'm not attempting to excuse myself from learning things that will clearly only help me, I'm, well, I've just been having trouble staying focused. Before this turns into some Tumblr or LiveJournal nonsense, yes, I'm working on it; no it's not easy for me. But I'll keep going anyway. @The Coop
  5. You know, I almost entirely forgot about this. It's...it's been a long year. That said, I'll be ready to build the new page and update the site. Though, to be honest, it's really time to update the design, too. I've been rather lax with it. Maybe I'll add a sidebar. Maybe not... Anyway, It'll be fun to post the project again this year. I'm looking forward to it.
  6. I have uploaded the corrected version of the back cover as well as updated the .rar file as well.
  7. Dang it, Coop... I'm not crying, you're crying. ;_;
  8. In case anyone was wondering, I'm still alive, and I'm still watching. I'll be authoring up the page for the new album this week and will be looking forward to finishing it up once the album is finished. As always, I'm happy that folks are participating and I look forward to hearing your tracks as always!
  9. I did not realize this. I've not been on the forums nearly as much as I used to be. I wanted to suggest link icons that folks could click to go to an artists site or bandcamp page or some social network profile/site/etc. with placement of such under their user name "card" at the left of the posts they make, but, after reading other comments here, that might be a worthless idea anyway. Guess even I need to get with the times.
  10. Interesting debate here. It's sad to see signatures go, but I've seen all to often what happens when someone loses their web server space or their link is cut off because they ran out of bandwidth. If it wasn't so costly to host all of those signatures, I'd suggest a web server solution run by OCR itself as a storehouse for signatures. Again, that would be costly, and the goal isn't to make it harder for anyone to operate. That said, I've an idea for posts. I decided to look at the code in Chrome's Developer tools. Took me a little bit to find the article tags that surround the posts here, but when I did, I toggled the border options that was available to me. It honestly doesn't look too bad if you add a simple border. It doesn't have to be black, or surround the entire post. Just enough, say one pixel, at the bottom of each post. I figured it would be the simplest idea to execute, barely any code at all. But that's not up to me. I'm just suggesting something.
  11. You're welcome. When I started this project over a decade ago, I never thought that it would go this long. I honestly originally thought that An OverClocked Christmas would be a one-off album and that others would take up the task of putting together something like this. To be honest, I'm proud of this community for keeping it going. I'm happy that The Coop is directing it, and that there is still interest in seeing it done. I'm proud of all the musicians and composers we've had for the project from the beginning. To be honest, this is one of the things I've always felt like I got right in starting. And I'm glad, because it really shows that people do care, not just about this project, but about music. So, I want to say thank you to everyone for enjoying the album or contributing to it over the years. Without any of you this wouldn't be the special thing that it is. It's truly an honor to be part of this community. Thank you all for everything you've done and continue to do. And thank you to djpretzel for OverClocked ReMix. AOCC wouldn't exist without OCR. Special thanks go to Xerol, as well. Had he not said something about having a Christmas music project, this would not have happened either. So really, it wasn't my idea. I just kinda...helped. I guess. Still, I could not be more proud of the end result of all these years.
  12. Tomorrow is December 1st. The countdown has begun, and I will be preparing the site for the newest entry. As always, I am looking forward to the release of this project.
  13. Go right ahead. And there's nothing wrong with it being Trap style. Go for it! There's always room for something new at the table.
  14. Just here to give this thread a bit of a bump. It's already October, and you know that means we're getting ever closer to Christmas. So, I'd like to throw out an idea since i'm such an avid Destiny 2 player. Perhaps someone would take up the challenge of remixing a track from Destiny or Destiny 2? (No, not the Paul McCartney song because it's copyright protected.) But there are a ton of fantastic tracks available to choose from. Some of my favorite include "Bad Juju", "Holliday", "The Awoken", "Journey (feat. Kronos Quartet)", and "Ikora". I think those are some awesome tracks, and would lend themselves well to a Christmas-style remix. I hope you are all working on some awesome music for this year, I can't wait to hear the finished tracks1
  15. It's been two years since anyone commented here. Just checking in to see how everything is holding up.
  16. You know, sometimes half the fun of listening to a ReMix or a track from AOCC is trying to figure out what song it is just from what you're hearing. Definitely brings out the nostalgia when you hear something familiar and it reminds you of the game you've played or a place you've been.
  17. Thank you, dip. I'm glad to help, even if all I do is maintain the site for it. It's a privilege.
  18. We are just 18 days away from the deadline, and I hope you're prepared. I'll be decking the halls of the website in preparation. Looking forward to this year's album, and I know I won't be disappointed. I never am with this.
  19. I'm a bit curious myself as to what's up. But I'm sure Jose is just incredibly busy. But here's me bumping this a bit in an effort to help.
  20. Just so no one thinks I'm not watching, I am, I just wanted to bump this a bit to remind you all that the deadline looms large. You've got two months exactly! So hurry up, because I'm still looking forward to this!
  21. If only I could be home for this. I'm so glad that OHC is still alive and well. This is amazing and I hope it's around for another 500 rounds.
  22. I'd like to do this. I miss the experience of hanging out with friends. There's so much we could do together. Impromptu jamming, games, local places to eat. So yeah, I'm game.
  23. Minor edit for Track 10 of volume 11. Just re-download track 10 to receive the fixed version. It has also been changed in the .rar file as well.
  24. Who wants to get the album from the site so we can give The Coop's dropbox a rest? I know I do! Oh wait... I did! LOL! Go here for An OverClocked Christmas v11!!! ----> http://williammichael.info/aocc/
