The story of a website's launch
by Jolex Del Pilar

Tuesday, December 4 2001

42,000 Cokes, 22,000 hours, and 1 million brain cells later, is born.

Perhaps, it's the constant radiation that is being emitted from my computer monitor as I write this, but there is nothing more soothing than the feeling of accomplishment. A project like is not something that you finish in one day, or in our case, one year. Sure, the constant delays were annoying, as well as the rising human and monetary cost, and the sneaking belief that the website just wouldn't launch no matter how much people wished it. But perhaps now, we can put it all aside and say, "We really did it."

A lot has changed since the project began. When the idea was first conceived, places like, and were still around. We've sat here and watched website after website become overcome by the recent downturn in the economy. Many of our friends from other websites told us quite frankly that they were fearful of the future of their jobs. Others have moved onto greener pastures. However, we remained calm and reserved, creating piece by piece everyday and now the time has come where we can no longer hold it under a veil of secrecy.

We hope you the readers stay with us through's infancy, and as we grow, we hope you stay with us as we strive to become a fully fledged journalistic website. We have finally arrived, but this is just the beginning.
