DMDB Ratings Fixed

There was a rating points discrepancy that I found in the database that was due to someones misuse of the application (and not in a hacking way). The issue has been resolved. I am still working on a newer updated version of the application.

Installing D2 in 64bit Windows 7

Trying to get the game content off the disc, but apparently it's not freely available on the disc (you have to install it). The installer wont run on 64bit. Any suggestions?

Re: Descent Level Database

Was thinking maybe the rating could show how many votes it got that rating from. Doesn't have to be on the front page, could be on the level page itself. The other thing is that there seem to be an awful lot of levels for whom the developer system breaks down. For instance, someone uploaded Levels ...

Howdy folks. Just a quick note: I'm upgrading the front-end user interface of the DMDB. I got quite far on it tonight. In the end it will boast better contrast colors, and a lot of jQuery/AJAX goodness. It'll be a long awaited a well-deserved upgrade. If you have any feature requests, put 'em down h...

Is the doctor in? Sore throat...

About a month or so ago I had a sore throat for about a week. The following 4 days it got progressively worse. No flu or cold symptoms, though the pain was making me tired. I thought that maybe it was strep so I looked down the ol' hatch and nothing - no white spots. Also, the pain wasn't in that pa...
