Well I kinda got slammed after SIGGRAPH so I couldn't update. But for the past month or so I've been able to work on it again. The credits section is basically done except for 2 details: need to update the info (assign directors and clients, put up new projects, start filling in credits, etc.) and a minor technical thing about awards that won't really impact the system. The Credits section will be much better than the previous version, it includes an RSS feed, numerous ways to search for projects and people and it'll be the central place to search for awards (taking it out from the main site).
Also I moved ILMfan.com to a new hosting provider effective December 1st. It reduces my costs now that there isn't much traffic (and I'm bringing my other site to the same account). Nothing really bad with my last host (except one server wasn't upgraded to a more recent PHP until recently).
Currently I'm working on the main site. I already got news posting working. It was a bit difficult reconverting the old data, took me about one week of work, mainly to get some HTML backups nicely indented and reconvert HTML entities to UTF8. Since there are 1544 posts it was not trivial. I'm still working on getting the content pages, categories and maybe articles working in a week or so. Bad news is that I just got a new project that I need to finish by December 31st. But I won't be available Dec 19 - Jan 1st due to some previous commitments. So... I have to finish this project in 2 weeks and see if I can finish the basic functionality of the main site so I can activate it. Plus of course going to Se Avatar in Imax 3D
It'll be difficult to have everything functional before New Year's but I expect by January to have the Credits section more or less updated, maybe the basic main site and hopefully open the boards. Stay tuned...
Oh and if someone has a way to do screencaptures of DVDs, and have DVDs/BDs os movies ILM worked on, contact me if you want to help.
