That site is run by HTF member Patrick Mirza. I just did a search to see when his last post here was, and it was this one from September 28. His last news update on his site was about a week later on 10/4. Hope everything's OK with Patrick - I, too, enjoy his site.
No, I haven't died (yet). I was pretty sick for a few weeks... nothing that would have me knockin' on heaven's door, but still bad enough that I couldn't get near a computer.
A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine offered to redesign the site so I would have something new to look at once I felt better.
Although I appreciate his help, I'm not sure if this is the look I want to see day in and day out. I like the clean look of the site, but the new color scheme is a bit on the drab side. And I've gotten a few emails already saying the same thing.
So between the regular updates, I think I may have to throw some color into the site and make it my own again. I hope my friend doesn't get too offended... nothing a round of drinks won't cure, I guess.
It's good to see DavisDVD back! I like the new design. It's more professional looking to me. If you want to jazz it up a little, make the sides a blue or something. All the gray may drive some people nuts.
