Updates

This is for all of you who visit the website on a regular enough basis that you know if something has changed. If this is your first time here, and you do not ever plan on returning again, then this is the wrong page for you and you should return to the home page. But for those of you intrepid enough to return now and again, here is what is new since your last visit:

• January 1, 2017.

This website was designed in January 2008 with a slightly different expectation in mind, that we would mostly be focusing on marathons of series with random movie days being inconsistent filler. Additionally, there was no reason to believe that we would still be doing them seven years later. During those seven years this website has not only fallen deeper into technological obsolescence (not that it was ever close to cutting edge to begin with) but also into an organizational mess, with new sections being tacked on where they could fit without restructuring the site's increasingly outdated purpose. For that reason I'm setting a goal to put out a new version of this site sometime in 2015, rebuilt and restructured to serve our group's current movie day needs.

Until then, here's the first of the upgrades rolling out before the site redesign. I've added a Calendar page, with a Google Calendar to make everyone's lives easier.
• November 13, 2014.
Added Pre-Halloween Horror Film Days, Six Foot Turkey Day, Holiday Movie Day, and New Year's 2015.
• July 28, 2014.
Began a new series, World War I at 100, on the 100th anniversary of the start of the conflict.

Added two pages to the Features section, the big one being the list of BAFTA Best Film Winners. Like the Academy Award Best Pictures section, the BAFTA winners is basically just a list right now with room designed for expansion at a later date.

I also incorporated my photo article of the Mr. Fusion Coffee Grinder that I wrote last June.
• March 21, 2012.
Added Shatner Day 2012: Dark Victory.

Finally did the smart thing and replaced all of the event press kits with Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) files rather than Microsoft Word (.doc). These not only load faster but also protect fonts and formatting that may not translate from one computer to the next in the Word files.

I should have done this long ago, from the start, and don't have any good reason why I didn't other than laziness. Which seems like a weird excuse given how much effort went into the insignia and press kits in the first place.
• April 10, 2011.
Added a new section called Special Features to the site. This is where extra materials will go that are related to movies and our movie days but might otherwise be uncategorizable.

Which brings me to another new section, the AMPAS Best Picture Winners. This is just a general list of all of the films that have won the Academy Award for Best Picture. Right now it's just a list of movies but this is a section that I plan on expanding considerably at some point in the future. Stay tuned about that.

While I was at it I copied over the Alien³ Opening Title Sequence article that I wrote last year, since this seemed like a good place to keep it.

I also replaced all of the navigation graphics and the title banner using a brighter shade of blue, as the previous color always looked a bit murky.
