alright party people, i decided to spend a wild and crazy night remedying one of the biggest problems that we have had with this site.

chrome ball had grown too large for its original design and any attempts to find a certain post within in it required almost as much digging as it took to create the actual post itself.

so feel free to use the new index provided on the right to greater delve into the chrome ball archives... from its humble, 1 scan/no links care-free beginnings all the way to its bloated and typically-crappy most recent transmissions.

there's some real clangers back there and i doubt many of the links still work... not to mention that your friend and humble narrator sounds like a real asshole most of the time...

so enjoy!

see you tuesday.

UPDATE: index is now on bottom right under the links and contact stuff. OCD has taken its toll.

man i think you're doing the best job ever with that website. i check it every single day and i just enjoy it. i love all those post being a fan of the mid 9O's skateboard era! i like the way you commit yourself on that, i guess that ain't easy especially when i'm sure you have others activities for a living. keep doing it but don't stres out, peaople always find something to complain about, that's our nature as you know.
thank for the joy you bring
you're the best skateboard archivist, with a lot of taste !

thanks fellas.

i always get a kick out of what names people come up with for what myself and the fine folks over at sites like Police Informer, Bobshirt, Vert is Dead, etc. are doing.... archivists, historians... it all has a stuffy, turtleneck-and-pipe-by-the-fireplace kinda vibe to it. haha.

my favorite one of all time has to be "skatehoarder". super good.

thanks again for the compliments everyone.

I don't think there is a word for what you're doing, Chops. Personally, I would just go with "awesome".

peel said...

Just want to say how proud I am of you for all this hard work. Even I have made heavy use of the Gnarchive today. And yes..."awesome" says it all.

I like how your posts are non-judgmental and you don't stick with any internet skate nerd cliches. You post whoever or whatever the hell you feel like.

Just back from part 1 of my vacay. Stoked on the indexing. Searching was a bitch! Keep up the great work E.

It's too bad we're not gonna be in nyc at the same time.
