I've spent the time away by traveling to Europe, proposing to my new fiance, planning a wedding, producing the tribute CD and working on a new design for Aside from that, I haven't been doing much. :) Lots of great things are on the horizon for the new web site. Many new features, lots more interactive things to do, an online store, a snazzy new look and, well, you'll just have to wait and see. If you have any suggestions for things you'd like to see at, just drop me a line.

Gave The Latest News section its own page and have updated the info there. BTW, please excuse the inconsistent look on the site... I'm gradually updating the format as I go along, but it probably is a lost cause until the switch-over to goes into effect, where there'll be a complete re-design. ETA on that is unknown, but will probably take place by the end of the summer.

May 22:
Thanks go out to Stuart Matthews for the design of the new Roddy-related banner ads that are randomly, er, strategically placed on various pages throughout the site.

It's only taken two weeks (ahem! sorry...), but finally the trancripts from the live chat session with Roddy on May 1st have been added... all twelve pages and 295k! They have been edited a bit, but only in the sense that I've corrected as many obvious typos as I could find and I've taken out several hundred smiley faces. :) Hopefully soon we'll get to hook up with Roddy again, but in the meantime please stop in the chat room anytime. Weekend fan gatherings are becoming a common thing there, which is a good thing, I think!
