back to keep up with what's going on in the poster industry.... if
you have an announcement that needs to go here, please contact us
been working real hard on the new database. It's starting to take
shape a little more. I just finished adding the sample on Sales History.....
If you haven't seen it you need to take a look. Here's a write
up and at the bottom you can click straight over.... OR you can
go straight to the Movie Section.... I have placed an entrance to
see we added a new article on Disney Theater Posters for those that
collect them...(we do!!). We're continually adding to the NSS numbers
mainly due to the efforts of Andy Schoenhorn. I wanted to give him
a special thanks because I don't have time to gather them right now
and he keeps sending me more..... That really helps!!!
now moving the database over to a SQL to give it more speed and a
lot more connections. After that we'll be finalizing the new log-in
system and movie the database into our regular format. Then we'll
be putting up a practice area for dealers.........That means we're
about 4-6 weeks away from turning it on for the dealers!!!!
you know what that means!!! YES!! We'll start adding dealers inventory
for sale on the site!!! We expect to have 30-40,000 posters for sale
on the site within 6 months!!!!
being the largest movie poster reference site on the internet.....
we'll also be the largest site with posters for sale on the internet..
of worrying about all the problems when you start to buy your new
poster.... you'll be able to come here... see the largest selection
on the net.... do your research in the same location and deal with
guaranteed dealers... AT THE SAME LOCATION.
I can't wait so I have to get back to work.... later
going in circles trying to work on too many things at one time......
did want to stop and make a couple of announcements......
have a new sponsor (yeah!)April 12, 2002
I'm back! (you didn't miss me?). We have been working real hard on
the new database as well as a couple of other projects. A little over
a month ago, I started having trouble with the hard drive in our main
computer. 3 weeks ago..... it CRASHED!!. After several conversations
with the manufactor and running numerous programs, the manufactor
finally agreed that it was a hard drive failure. At least they replaced
it free of charge, it just took some time. Now...... we're running
way behind schedule!!! This weekend I'll be making a lot of changes
on the site... updating several articles and sections as well as the
front page, poster news etc.
area that we want to make an announcement on.... We've come to the
conclusion that the new database it so large that instead of waiting
until it's completely finished..... I'm going to start loading some
of the beginning layers!!. We feel that this can help us work out
more of the final bugs in each layer through usage instead of us just
playing with it. We're still about 6 weeks away from the completion
of the debugging of the program... but we can let you start seeing
some of it... As I finish the opening pages, I'll post it.
also have a lot of other things to fix but instead of me just rattling
about them.... let me go fix them and I'll come back and post them.
for those that want to check out a sample of the new database
can't believe it's been a month since I last posted. As you can tell,
a lot of stuff has been going on the site and behind the scenes. Let
me try to catch everyone up on some of the activities....
book finally came out. The publisher started shipping about 10 days
ago. It sure seems like it's been a long time in the works. We've
been shipping autographed copies all over the world..... so if you
haven't gotten yours... we' re holding one for you!!
put a lot of new stuff on the site AND.... it looks like we've finally
worked out the bugs on our database!!!!! YEAH!!! we've started loading!!
I figure it will take us about 6 weeks before we're ready to turn
a section of it on for everyone to see and about a year just to imput
all the photos and info THAT WE'VE GATHERED SO FAR!! But I can't wait
for that TOO!.
also have a sister site getting ready to go online in about 10 days..
I'll be announcing it in a few days. We've been working on it for
a while (between all the chaotic periods).
I hope everyone has taken a look at Susie's Corner.... it's Mardi
Gras time down here and Sue has already made me promise to take pictures
this weekend at the parades so she can put them on the site. So be
sure and check back on it next week when she puts them up online.
today we got our new Heritage Poster Catalog for the new auction!!
It looks FANTASTIC!! I'll start posting all of their great pieces
tomorrow for you to see.
back to the grind stone... so much to do .... so little energy.
