I got some real bad news, couple of days ago my whole comp crashed. Some kind of virus starting spreading and took up all my virtual memory. I couldnt get a backup of my flash *.fla so i wont be able to update the site anymore. The file for the site that i would update is gone, i had to format... Looks like i cant update the site
http://www25.brinkster.com/uplink2k/site.html  anymore.... :( Maybe if i get enough support and email ill start on a new one once more... DAMN WINDOWS!!!

Stryker, if you wanna start another site (non-flash) gimmie a hollar. I was thinkin of startin a fan site with tuts and the such. but no flash, its too hard to contantly maintain if it's flash enabled. Save flash for the intro or a banner or something :)

I find this kinda interesting... That is the virus part... We are currently working on a server for a client that did the same thing... (working as a PC Technician) What was the virus name? Do you Remember, or know? We have started formating the pc it was on... The shi* is that it was a terminal server... Takes like 2 days to set up from scratch... :( I'm kinda glad it's one of my co-workers task... :P Well if you could either post a reply in the forum or maybe send me a mail @ mrmt@online.no

Thank You!

:: Virii :shocked:

Ahh.. that sucks.. you had a good site going there!
If you ever need some help with graphics or maybe
something else then just scream for me at this forum!

I have always dislicted virii's since the first virus I
had! I still remember it (Win95.CIH)... but after that
I have been using good virus scanners to protect me.
If you want some good tips: Norton Anti-Virus or
Anti-Viral Toolkit Pro (Kaspersky Labs)

Or visit http://www.virusbtn.com/ to check what they
say! they test and give out 100% anti-virus awards to
software!

Hey there.....

it IS possible to edit the page even now.... just download the .swf file (here http://www25.brinkster.com/uplink2k/site.swf) and import it in flash.... this works if you remember your pass for the file... ;o)

good luck and please update if it works for you.... :)

ill try it, but i dont think itll work cuz the swf file is just the flash player file, it does not contain the things you can edit, try it anyway tho...

well it is a shame. there's absolutely no way i can update or edit the site anymore. without the .fla file, you basically screwed... (like me). maybe ill start a new one again...
