This is the time, when ESzAH introduces one of the top Gods of
Egypt: his divine majesty, ruling god of Thebes and the Two Countries, Amun is here! His
companion is the mysterious Khepera. The topic on the Rulers of the Wastelands is
ready and replaced its synopsis - I think ESzAH did nice job with it! The Books part of
our site now features something new: ESzAH's thoughts about Anne Rice's The Mummy or
Rameses the Damned appears if you follow the link of the book's title. Born updated
the Glossary and the Catalogue, too. We have more on the schedule, so keep on beeing
online! ;o) And don't forget to sign the GuestBook because it's entries are the most
powerful fuel of the publishers ;o)

The vacation has finally arrived, so I have as much time as I want
to spend on developing the homepage. Born is not lazy either! :- ) First we have filled
our good old favourites with new contents. In the "Topics" Born shares his
adoration about one of his favourite historical personalities. It is Senenmut, a
mysterious figure of the age of Queen Hatshepsut. The title is "The Sandal
Bearer". You can find new entries among the "Quotations" that represent the
new experience of both of us, and we also recommend some new books for you in the
"Books" section. For the sake of our readers we are about to open a new section
in which we will deal with "Egyptian" movies. To read the introductory click on
the EgyptoMedia cartouche. Have a nice surfing here and check us out frequently. We will
come up with new exciting entries soon.
June 3rd, 2000
In the last months we were do two interesting topics on the
Hungarian version, but their translations are difficult ones. One of them is about the
Hyksos, the other one presents the Sandal Bearer, Hatshepsut's secretary and advisor, and
possibly lover Senenmut. This latter one is sitting on the fence (certainly not Senenmut,
but the article on him), while the Hyksos topic is presented now with a brief synopsis,
which will be replaced when the full version is translated and uploaded. But we do not
come with bare hands. As you can see, the ToC cartouches are rearranged for a more logical
order, and the former Wallpapers section has new name. If you click on this Bazaar link,
you will find that the new look took new contents, too. Beside the Wallpapers, Nokia logos
and Windows icons we are proudly present a new Wallpaper collection and Born's Kemet
animated cursor set for download. That's all for now, but we have further ideas, so stay
online with us!

Some minor corrections happened, and the Kings' List is rearranged
to several smaller pages, which is intended to shorten download time. If you have any
question or you want to share your opinion, you can join to Ancient Egypt mailing list on
E-Groups, or, if you write and read Hungarian, you are invited to our Forum (links from
Hungarian mirror). May is coming, and we are about to issue new topics. We have several
interesting themes on schedule, so you'd like to see what will turn up here... Come and
April 22nd, 2000
This time we have rearranged and slightly updated Getting Started
section for easier download and navigation, and an important request on the Expenses page
of it. Also we have new quotations to share. New wallpapers and the topic about the Hyksos
are on their way. Actually, they are nearly in the sight. Have a good browse and come
April 14th, 2000
Against all of our intentions, we had a long break since I changed
my ISP and changed my home. But the site improved while I was far from the net. We have
new God entry about Min, a god of visibly divine qualities, and ESzAH made a topic which
has actuality since Easter is coming. It is about the Exodus - from another point of view.
We have some new links which she find worth to suggest, and the picture Catalogue is
updated. Wihtin our further plans there are new wallpapers, some really great topics about
the Hyksos and other themes, and I have found interesting lines to quote, too. Have a
pleasant browse, and visit us again - and don't forget to sign the GuestBook!
February 11th, 2000
Only minor corrections made this upload necessary, and few technical
changes. First of all, the Glossary window got bigger on public demand. How do you like
it? Write us in the Guestbook or e-mail.
We plan to present a new topic as soon as possible. ESzAH's investigations shed
light upon a rather dark period of Egypt's history. It's first version is sitting on the
fence, but pictures will come later only. We have temporary technical limitations now.
ESzAH did an interesting new topic, too, which will raise some arguments, hopfully. It was
not on the schedule but worth to make a "special edition". At this moment I
think it will come around March, but you will find other ideas, and some gods are waiting
to be introduced. So, press CTRL D to bookmark our page, and surf here again!

May you be granted life, stability and
wealth! Born and myself spent our after-holidays and after-exam-period vacation on
developing our beloved homepage. The outcome you can see here from today.
The most significant improvement concerned the Gods chapter. Two further gods
joined our (yet) incomplete pantheon. This time Horus (my eponym) and Thot (public
favourite no.1. among the students) shined forth on the horizon of the site and I tried to
summarize everything about them that could inspire you to cultivate their cult. :-)
Furthermore Born has executed a large-scale technical modification in order to accelerate
the navigation among the entries. From today you can meet the gods on separate links.
Many mistakes have been corrected, and a new link-system has been uploaded, again for your
easier navigation - also thanks to Born.
And our enthusiasm is not fading. We try very hard to overcome our uncontrollable
homesickness to Egypt, which usually culminates at the beginning of February, and we
transform all our desperation about the climate of our tiny homeland into positive energy
and charge it into our homepage. Born is burning the midnight oil with a composition about
one of the most mysterious personalities of the 18th dynasty more precisely the
succession fight of the Thutmosides. I am making an investigation about the Hyksos and
their expulsion. The result will be available among the topics soon. More gods are about
to join their lucky relatives who have already been present in the Gods
section. Their identity shall still remain in the twilight of the Western Horizon.
These are our plans for the near future but now lets concentrate on the present:
HAVE A NICE SURFING AND ENJOY YOURSELVES!

Close your eyes for a while, and take a deep breath... The sounds
are fading, lights go out, silence fills up the rows. The spotlights focusing to the
centre, the silence grows heavier... Then the fanfares cry out, the drums, nays,
lyrae and sistra chants strange but friendly rhythms you have to move your legs with...
And the curtains roll up, and the ubiquitous stars of Egypt step into the stage - The
Well... After a greater-than-ususal mistake eliminating seance we came up with brand
new spelling mistakes... :o) But not our spelling is the only one what improved. The
Ramesside Smile topic has new and more suitable pictures, and as you read it, the Gods are
here, too... Four of them, for the start. We have additional information for the Kings'
List and new picture of them, we have new books to recommend, and some new quotations on
the Hungarian page. Unfortunately the English quotations don't come easy. We have improved
Glossary and up-to-date picture Catalogue, new navigation links at the page bottoms -
beware of the popup texts! Because of the different manners as the different browsers
handle the pictures, I had to rearrange the popup... well, crawl-up big-picture pages, and
we have our English search engine under pre-alpha testing. We gotta keep up to the pace of
Hungarian pages, because the translation cannot take place in December.
Yes, we have our plans, of course. ESzAH has new topic in her mind, but no details
are available by this time. I take notes on the owner of the tomb wearing the TT 353
number plate :o) What does it mean? Well, this mean you'd better come back next time, too!
January 09th, 2000
Here we come with the promised topic and a new one about Thutmosis
III and the reason why we call him 'His Royal Mouseness'. Gods are re-translated and we
have new pictures for them, some minor corrections have to be made. I hope I can upload it
within a week.
