After some thought on the matter, I've decided to permanently separate the Episode Guide & the Character Guide from the main site. Due to the potential size of them, it would be easier to manage to separate entities, one that is dynamic (this site) and one that will be static (guides). Next week I will begin the conversion to the guides and post them.
On the home front, our own Caro Von Toth (whom I give bonus points to for having such a cool sounding name) has opened Ranger One, a site dedicated to GR. Inside you'll find a character guide, links, fanfic, a really handy guide to the GR universe and a gallery. The gallery should charge admission as it would be worth the price.
11 days after the 7/5 post, I received this message:
I have received word from our engineers that our internal DNS has been properly configured, and your domain will be resolving with 24 hours. Again, I apologize for the delay with getting your site up and running, and appreciate your patience. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you in the future.
So, if you're reading this, then it worked. Be sure to read 07/05.
Well, if you haven't noticed, Betamountain.org has been offline for sometime now. We're still looking for a home and are tossing around ideas on the list. I've decided that there should be something of the site up in the meantime. So, that said, let me apologize for the streamlined version of Betamountain.org.
Since we have a few new members on the list (Hi Ren, Geert & John Rawlins (yes, J.R. from the series (not Dallas, you aging goofs), who we will interviewing when we get back on our feet..so beware..) I thought it was important to keep the site up to provide IRC & Mailing List info.
There is a copy of the old site over at betamountain.tripod.com, but beware. The banners there interfere with the site's flow. Be warned.
We should be up and running again in the near future. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me at GRsiteinfo@rabbibob.com , I will try my best to entertain.
Looking for shows from yesterdays past? Check out http://www.yesterdayland.com/ . Make sure you have some time, this site is well designed and has so many things of interest that you may find yourself there for awhile.
Betamountain would like to say "hello" to Dan Fiorella who dropped by last week to see the site. Earlier this month, BM.org posted a link to http://www.themestream.com/ with a work of Dan's. Well, it looks like he's been cranking some more out. Run a search on the name Dan Fiorella and check them out.
Take the numerous warnings that appear with information on flashing a BIOS chip and pay attention to them. My apologies for a week without any work on the site, but the better half of it was spent obtaining a replacement chip and re-installing Windows 98.
Of some interest in computer designed artwork, take a peek at http://www.dynamic-realities.com/. I spent sometime touring the galleries & decided that while it was OT, it was a site worth sharing. Probably one of the simplest examples there, this is one of my favorites:
Head on over to http://www.themestream.com/, a site whose goal "is building the world's largest collection of knowledge about the topics you love and need to know about.." While you're there be sure to run a search on the name Dan Fiorella and read his "One Parent's Guide to Braces." If you don't know who Dan is from the show, click here.
