Holy cow! Has it really been 3 years since I last sent an email to this list?
Many of you may have forgotten that you even signed up for this announcement
list or may have mistakenly signed up more than once. LOL See the footer of
this message for unsubscribe instructions.
The 3-year gap in announcements pretty much tells you how much (or rather how
little) activity has been happening on the site in that time period. Health
and/or personal issues conspired to make this site a low priority during that
period but that is hopefully changing. Last year, I had started a major redesign
of the site but unfortunately, after a great deal of work, I decided I didn't like
it and will have to start all over again. So, for now I'm going to leave the site
looking the way it currently does and concentrate more on adding new content.
Some recent additions include:
The Matron's Blog, which is essentially a diary of what's going on with the
updates and/or in my head while I'm working on the site (mostly ACP- or site-related
but may also be totally rambling). Check out http://acountrypractice.com/News/Weblog
(note: I'm still tweaking the appearance of the blog pages so ignore any peculiarities
there -- they'll be gone shortly).
A poll: I'm considering adding a forum to the site but I'd like to get a feel for
how many people would actually want one here. Check out
http://acountrypractice.com/polls.php to place your vote or check the ongoing
Some things I'm working on:
A virtual tour of "Wandin Valley". This was partially completed when I had a
hard drive corruption problem last month so I now have to start over, essentially
from scratch...it's going to be awhile but it's "in the pipe"
Additional episode descriptions, some provided by fans Louise O and Amelia and
others by me.
A transcript of the 1.5 hour specials that aired along with the final regular
episode in 1993. Since I don't yet have the technology to be able to digitize the
video or extract images from it, a transcript is the best I can do for now.
Library of ACP-related articles that have been sent to me over the years.
Lots and lots of photos...and essentially everything else that is on the Pending
Updates page (see http://acountrypractice.com/News/pending.html for details). :-)
Well, that's about it for now. I'll send another announcement when there are a
reasonable amount of additional updates to announce. In the meantime, keep an
eye on http://acountrypractice.com/News/updates.html. And if you have any comments
or questions, please feel free to send them along to firstname.lastname@example.org
