Spirak Turns One

Hip Hip! Hooray! Spirak turns one! One year ago from today Spirak was conceived. Notepad was opened, where <html> was combined with hours of coding and creativity, to eventually produce Spirak. So what did Spirak look like back then? Check out the below screenshots of Spirak changing through time, or view the original website exactly as it was one year ago: Original Spirak

Free Spirak Email

Along with the change of hosts last month came several great features, one of which was free email addresses. There are two types of email, fixed and forwarding; both are available, although i recommend fixed due to the compatibility. Shortly after you sign up you will receive an email about using your email@spirak.net. To apply for an email @spirak.net Click here.

100 Game Overs

Finally after what seemed like months of unwanted chores all of the 100 games were uploaded day by day, as promised. This method of adding games was incredibly cumbersome, due to this the quality of games chosen for selection were significantly lesser than that of the freelance games, as I struggled to find a game worth putting on, which meant I had to go with second best. As it was such a bother to upload a game religiously I doubt whether there shall be another 100 games in 100 days. Sorry if you were looking forward for one. More games, movies, downloads will be added just via a different system. If you have a game etc. and you think it is Spirak material, don't hesitate to send it to me.

Spirak has moved...Again

As of 1am this morning Spirak relocated to a new server. Our previous hoster, NimbleHost, suddenly became non-existent at the end of last month, which is the reason for Spirak's temperamental appearance over the past few weeks. We wish to apologise for any inconvenience this distance may have caused. This change is for the good, we will have email accounts, extra server space, mySQL databases and much, much more...

50 Down 50 to Go

It has been 50 days since Spirak decided it would add one (1) game every day for 100 days. As of today 50 games have been added, meaning there is 50 remaining to be added over another 50 days. As there is still quite a long period of time left, members of the Spirak community can suggest what game(s) they would like to be added. One may recommend what type of game(s) are to be added in the forum, as linked above.

Passwords

Several people have asked me why I have left certain passwords on some downloads, the reason for this is because there has to be a limit to the level of distribution. Only members of the Spirak community may download files, passwords enforce this rule. If you have any problems or want to join the Spirak community, feel free to email the admin @ admin@spirak.net.
