Then earlier today I wrote a page on an old bug I reported years ago: Wrong sound for exit switches, one of the three original switch sound origin bug patches which I blame for my ending up with commit access to PrBoom in the first place. I suppose I shall do the other two, in time.
Also I did a mass search and replace of link URLs on this site. There weren't that many. I don't usually bother updating links in old posts but they're trying really hard to deprecate the old version so I thought I should help.

High-Profile Modern Map Releases
I seem to be halfway through a large number of recent high-profile wad releases. These include:
1994 Tune-up Community Project a.k.a. Let's Ruin A Bunch Of Classics With The Horrible Fashions Of Modern Mapping. Well that's what I thought when I first heard about it but there is some really nice stuff in here. Map15 continues to amaze me because even though I know the original** really well I completely failed to recognise it. I didn't think much of the Deimos Subway remix though, the original is better.
- Plutonia: Revisited Community Project - the release of this thing prompted me to go and play Plutonia 2. So far I mostly prefer the latter... Incidentally there is apparently a TNT Revisited in the works as well.
EPIC 2, which I downloaded when it came out last December but for some reason never really got far into it... It is good, though, another great WAD from Eternal.
** Officially TECHBASE.WAD, although there are several variants of TECHBASE's layout. Another version of the same map can be found in Serenity, for instance. They were all based on an example that came with an old map editor - see the comments there for a list.
