Updated Files

Hey, most of you know that I started updating some of the older files on the site last year. Over the years, I have varied the quality that I recorded and saved the files. Those really older files? Yeah, they sound... not so good compared to stuff I've been recording and posting within the past year. Also, there is sort of an "audible illusion" with the older files: they sound like the ends (and sometimes the beginning) are clipped/cut off.

Over the 20 years this site has been running (yes, the archives only go back to 1999, but I started the site back in 1995) I have changed the bit-rate that I record the files at many times. Comparatively, most of the really old files sound like crap compared to things that I've posted in the past year.

I've been going through some logs lately and I've noticed a pattern of folks searching for an actor, a character, or even a show using the Search function. One of the biggest problems that I noticed is that a lot of these things being searched are not being spelled correctly. And, obviously, if the term being searched is not spelled correctly, you're going to have a hard time finding the stuff you're looking for.

Oops

Well, that wasn't fun. With the rigors of a new job and getting used to a totally different sleeps schedule a few things slipped through the cracks... like being consistant with new Quote uploads and maybe paying a bill for some domain stuff.

As you can see, the site's back up and running today. I do hope to get new content (and a lot of content queued up for the future) so things should be running better by the end of the week.

Thanks for sticking in there!

Yes, I'm a Doctor Who fan (as if it wasn't obvious). For those awaiting The Day Of The Doctor in nine days, the BBC just dropped a new mini-episode to make you go squee. And what better day to release this than on Paul McGann's birthday?

 

Phyllis Diller will be sorely missed. At age 38, she made her stand-up debut at the Purple Onion in San Francisco. She was only supposed to have a two-week gig there, but was so popular that it turned into a year-and-a-half engagement.

I've put up a few quotes from Eight On A Lam up today. While not a cinematic masterpiece, it is a fairly typical sample of the 1960s screwball comedies and also starred Bob Hope and Jonathan Winters.
