Just putting the ezboard back temporary, because the domain is still not up, and it doesn't looks right for a site without a forums.

(August 2nd, 2002)
Thanks for everyone that encourage me not to shot down the site. So I get myself together and apply for a new host, and soon will be up again. Also, I finished the Character Section. I spent 2 days on that, and yet it's still somewhat under construction. Tell me what you think of it. =) Oh yea, I am going back to China this Saturday for 3 weeks. Hopefully I will have chance to get online in China to make some update. Any song request will be disregard during this period. (August 3rd ~ 22nd). Oh one more thing, Initial D World past its 2nd anniversary yesterday if you hadn't notice and 400k visitors reached!

(July 25th, 2002)
Bad News. The host I was using had cancelled my account because of extremely high bandwidth usage. I was shocked when I heard that. At this moment, I am thinking to shut down Initial D World.

(July 22nd, 2002)
Discussion Board back online.

(July 19th, 2002)
Nothing really updated. MP3 Section is back. That's about it. Regarding the Discussion Board, well I am sorry, but got hacked recently. >_< All files including backup copy are gone, including the messages in the board of course. I am working very hard on getting the board back online. It should be back soon.

(July 13th, 2002)
Uploaded two songs in MP3 Section. (Emotional Fire, King Of The Night)

(July 10th, 2002)
Re-uploaded few songs in MP3 Section.

(July 8th, 2002)
Well, the domain is up and running. I also find out Web1000 had suspended my account. =( Oh well, I was going to upload everythings to the new domain anyways. Currently, there is no MP3s available for download.
I think you guys had probably heard about this, TokyoPop bought the Initial D license on US. Well it's already a bad thing that they are going to dubbing Initial D. Now they are even going to change the original character's names! Like Takumi becomes Tak; Itsuki becomes Iggy; Ryosuke becomes Ry...etc. This is just plain annoying. So everybody please sign the petition, to tell TokyoPop how we Initial D fans feel about this:

(July 4th, 2002)
Yay! Today must be a good day! I got my domain up! will be the official URL for Initial D World from now on. You will probably notice some changes on the site in the following days, that's because I'll slowly moving everything to the new host. And yes, the forums is back on, sorry for the long downtime. Well, that's it for now, E-mail me if you have any request, questions. I'll keep you posted as the site reform.

(June 22nd, 2002)

Since ezboard has too many pop-ups, I decided to change to a new message board. Also, I have no idea why Geocities deleted my MP3 Section and Wallpaper Section.
