Dismember

Randomly... we at New Metal Army decided to go to see Dismember at the Underworld. It was fucking awesome. The crowd seemed to be in to it and Dismember were certainly enjoying themselves.

We had a fucking excellent time. Thanks to Dismember and the support bands (who I am too drunk to remember atm). You fucking rock.

be seeing you

PS: I need to go to bed now before my head starts hurting.

More Updates to New Metal Amry

metaldazza / March 21, 2008, 1:21 a.m.

We've taken some feedback from users and added

  • by default news links open in a new window, if you register then there is a preference to turn that on or off.
  • clicking on the banner at the top of the page takes you to the site homepage
  • the gig listing are bunched by date. I think it makes the listings a lot cleaner
  • also in the gig listings: a venues city is listed with the venue name if it isn't obvious where it is in the world.
  • when looking at the 'you' page there isn't any more stray html code at the top of the screen.. :eek:.
  • the contact us link now works... so you can contact us for whatever reason :question:.

There have been lots of other small changes to make New Metal Army better as well. I hope you enjoy it... and go to some fucking gigs :winky:.

be seeing you.

From a land before time...

Well not quite. It's a big milestone for me. I am posting this entry to the blog from Internet Explorer 6 on Windows 2000. It's like 2001 all over again!

Maybe IE isn't your thing. If you are a Nintendo fan you can read the site on your Wii now using the Internet Channel. Everything works really well apart from the flash movies but flash just isn't working on the Wii very well anyway.

So basically you should be able to do most things in most browsers now. Any problems then please send screen shots in to metaldazza@newmetalarmy.com. Thanks :smile:

Secretly I can reveal that most of the site works in IE 5.5 but if you are on IE 5.5 you have got bigger problems.

Now you can buy tickets

dudes, I've added a little button you can press to buy tickets to the gigs you can see. There are still a lot of gigs to be added but I've checked and published all the gigs well in to April now.

I've fixed a few small bugs so there is information for some of the newly added bands as well.

G G G G..... Gigs at last!

It's been a long time coming but the gig listings are no longer fantasy. They are all real :surprised:.

I've only checked marches gigs and they all seem to be valid and linking to the correct places. I've just got another 280 gigs to check to get up to date :stare:.

That should take a day or two. One thing I found out along the way is that no one seems to know who the support bands are for most gigs. This is really depressing. I often go to gigs to see the support acts. I'll have to look in to a way to automate this information gathering.

Anyway, I'm off to the pub to see some friends and scrounge a few drinks :evil:
