opened this new site. As always, this site is a work in
progress so there is still much left to be done.
the last several weeks, I've added several new
pages to the Exam
including some very obsessed statisitics (more of
those to come later) and broadcast
past and present (if you want to know what
episode you're about to see, that's the place to
well, I've added a small, unobtrusive menu bar
(and the accompanying pages, of course) to the
top of many of the existing pages and done some
general cosmetic mucking around everywhere.
added some photos to various character pages
(more to be added later) and some full cast
photos to the Duty
am working on episode guides. These will be
coming over the next few weeks/months...please be
patient (it's a very time-consuming process).
uploaded redirection pages onto the old site
(pending the completion of the text-only pages)
and sent a welcome message to all of you who
registered for the mailing list.
Well, construction work is still
going on but it's all coming together well. I've added
some neat stuff lately -- if you haven't checked out the Supply Room recently
you really should (there's a RealMovie clip of the
opening credits from the Final Episode special, photos taken on location during the
filming of an early episode, and other stuff). More great
things to come.
NOTE: In late June, due to
problems caused by the merger of Geocities and Yahoo,
I decided to register my own domain for this site and
move the entire thing to a "real" hosting
company. All "What's New" notes after July
1 refer to this new site; all notes before July 1
refer to either of the old locations at Geocities.
file of cast credits from the
final episode special. Also uploaded information about
the "All My Friends"
record album. Please note that further updates will be on
hold for about 2 weeks because I'll be temporarily
Web-less. Next updates will be at end of June...thanks
for your patience.:-)
episode descriptions (episodes
819/820, 837-844, and 855-872 still to come).
Added "Search this site" panel to all main
section pages. Made minor corrections to several existing
episode descriptions (episodes
893-896, 941/942, 947-958, and 963-968 still to come).
New home: As
you've no doubt noticed, we've moved to a new
neighbourhood in Geocities. This new location (in
Television City) is more fitting to the nature of the
web site. It also separates this web site from my
personal home page (since this one has taken on a
life of it's own). You'll also see that there are no
more pesky little advertising pop-ups or banners
across the top of the pages [yay!!] -- those really
annoyed me so I decided to shell out the money to
make them stop. A very wise investment, I'd say. ;-)
New look: I've
changed the header and button graphics that are used
throughout the whole site. I created these graphics
to give the site a more professional feel. They're
not perfect (neither am I!) but hopefully you like
them as much as I do.
In addition to new graphics, I've also altered the
general layout of the pages and the sections from the
way they were before...click here to
find out more about why I chose the format I did. You
can see that the sections have odd new names -- click here to
find out why I picked the names I did.
New and updated information:
(1) I've added information to many of the old pages
and generally mucked around with just about
everything so take a good look around -- you may not
find the information you're looking for on the same
page you found it before.
(2) Many new pages of information have been added
(and even more are waiting to be finished for later
updates). Take your time exploring the site....treat
it like it's a brand new site you've never seen
before. If you need a little hint as to what you'll
find here, click on the "Site Map" button.
(3) Much work is still left to be done -- Changes
that will be coming over the next several weeks
include updated episode guides, additional show
information, cast biographies, and photos. During
this time, you may find that pages you're looking for
are incomplete or under construction -- please don't
email to ask where the information is until the final
update is in place (I'll post a note on this page
once all updates are finished).
This web site will be moving to a
new location in the "TelevisionCity"
neighbourhood at Geocities -- the "grand
opening" of the new site will be sometime during May
or June, 1999. This new Wandin Valley Hospital will be
almost completely updated, with expanded character
information, cast information, and photos as well as some
brand new things that you might not have expected,
including trivia quizzes. Please note that the episode
guides may not be completely updated for some time after
the official opening.
In the meantime, no new updates will
be made to the "old site" so that I can devote
my attention to the new site. I think you'll find it's
worth the wait and inconvenience.
