God Emperor’s Dune link archive - now open!

Postby DuneFishUK » 01 Apr 2009 18:16

I had a cunning plan last night - one very much inspired Askaris de Dar's Dune site cataloguing efforts - so thanks :)

I used to run a site called The Fish Speaker which, although it was a pile of shite, I have been pondering bringing back and doing properly. The links page gets quite a few hits even though almost none of the links work any more. Also I was thinking how to escape DN censorship. And also I can now get rude-not-to-cheap co.uk domains.

The result: http://www.theFishSpeaker.co.uk - The God Emperor’s Link Directory

Like all ideas that are put from concept to prototype in less than 24 hours, it might be a crap idea. But I'm hopeful it will go a little way to freeing Dune from the DN.com stranglehold.

(and who knows, I might even make a half decent GEOD site at some point...:wink: )

Thoughts welcome.

Great site.

My favorite: Hairy Ticks of Dune - Unrelenting stream of bile focussed on the new Dune books and their author.

:lol:

Looks like the Dune Index is already a dead link though. :P

That looks really great, thanks for adding Worm's!
As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Hypatia approaches one.

Only the books written by Frank Herbert are canon.

Clean site. Could be a bit more organized, such as with a sidebar. Some people don't like to scroll. :roll:

But I personally like the look. Where did you get the image for the Fish Speaker?

It looks good. Is this place ever going to get tarted up?

np -Worms is one of those sites I keep meaning to have a proper look at but never seem to get round to. I joined in 2005ish and have 3 posts to my name :oops: :P

Yeah... I get what you're saying - and this is still a bit work in progress. I went for the single post format just to keep it all together and have it there on the front page. I mean - what do you prefer: scrolling or clicking? :P

The fish speaker is one of mine. I did her a couple of years ago in less than 2hrs. Rough as fuck - she actually looks better in cut-out :P. I'm planning a re-version and more GEOD art - will see how it goes.

Cheers ppl. Will keep at it. :)

:shock:

DuneFish, I find your comment highly inappropriate and I feel ashamed at having to read such filth. Well, at least you took longer than B.B.'s "5 minutes." :wink:

You should consider adding this one too:

It is a copy (not a mirror) of what I have at T(A)U, but I have noticed it gets many more hits then the list on my forum gets.
