Uhmn. Ha ha ha. Well, it's been a while, hasn't it. Not quite a year though.
And nothing "new" to show for it either. Except that I just moved the site to
a different location. You'll now find that www.imitationpickles.org sends you to
www.philhassey.com/pickles. I did this to save money, and reduce the amount of
complication in my life.
But get ready. Some day I'll update this site again. Maybe soon. Though I wouldn't
be betting a whole heck of a lot of cash on that if I were you.
March 23, 2001 :
Here we go..
March 16, 2001 :
And yet another update!
- Story Hour has another three
stories! A Dr. Zoller Christmas, Christmas Tree Time,
and Phil and Dan Turn Bad. Only 9 months and 9 days until Christmas!
March 7, 2001 :
More Excitement and Adventure!
March 2, 2001 :
- Story Hour two new stories:
Phil and Dan's Halloween (with Real Audio) and Playing the Viola.
February 23, 2001 :
Tah day. Imitation Pickles has been around for just over two years now!
Aren't you proud!
As a special suprise, for the next month, I think
I'll be able to make weekly updates. :)
Anyway, lots of new stuff to check out:
- Dan and Doug's Adventures in the Holy Land -
Episode 1 - Dan's Plane Ride. This is going to be a brief 3-5 episode
Adventure game series. Please click on 'help' when you get to the game
if you don't understand how adventure games work. They're kinda fun.
For this first episode you'll be playing the character of Dan.
(And if you're really lazy, you can just click on "Hint" for hints, or
"Solve" for the solution of the game, which is kind of like a story.)
- Galcon is back up. And now it's
running on my friend Jason's computer. It also has all new graphics, and
is running on PHP instead of perl. So it will work more often now. :)
Check that out, at least to see the new title screen.
- Story Hour has some updates now.
I've added the story Beasts of Burden in Real Audio format. So
now you can listen to my stories right off the website. I'll be adding
some more stories, some with Real Audio, later. Also, the ones with audio, you
may need to turn your volume up a lot.
- Lastly, email me if there are any problems with the above items.
If you find that Galcon or Dan and Doug's Adventures aren't working,
please tell me what went wrong.
December 19, 2000 :
My Christmas update is here!
- Pretty Christmas logo added above. Merry Christmas. Have fun, sing
Christmas Carols for me.

with several new games in the C++ version.

Dan's Marble Marvels.
October 18, 2000 :
A myriad of exciting additions are here!
- In Story Hour about eight new stories
have been added. Check them out. Some are re-written Shen Memoirs, others
are older stories, and four of them are all new exciting things..
- An all new Shen Memoir is here. It is the
long awaited "Kert 'the mac' Richardson" episode. Also Justin McDonald has
added Appendix B: Refining Gold. Which is a historical look at my dating
- Also I added a links page. It will
likely never be updated, and is probably wrong already.
August 11, 2000 :
Check out some stuff I should have put up ages ago.
Pictures of Junk, which is a new section.
Now things like my apartment are in there two. The new stuff is pictures
of Tim Inge's haircut, and some pictures from new years I wanted to put

February 26, 2000 :
Well, due to a bug in Galcon, my cgi-bin was disabled. I have thus
removed the game, until I fix the problem. (There are still links to it,
but they won't work, I may remove them sometime soon.) My website
was down for the last week and a half because my hosting service took a long
time to reactivate it. Have a good break.

Read it and be elightened.
January 3, 2000 :
Happy new year. Amazing isn't it, all those Y2K food bunker people were
