Welcome to Thunderbirds Online
Last Updated: Tuesday 17th May 2014
Sorry about the complete lack of updates in the last year or so! It's been a bit of a stressful time. I went off to university but it all went horribly wrong. I'm now taking a gap year to claw back my self-esteem. And anyway, I've become very busy these days with various other projects, hobbies, etc. and at some point you run out of time to get everything in.
As you may have noticed, I've given the site a bit of an overhaul, to bring the design more in line with Stingray Online, which I always preferred anway. The old design was something I knocked together in a few minutes meaning to change it as soon as I could be bothered. That was nearly five years ago, which probably says a lot about my motivational skills.
Wow, this site is nearly five years old. That makes me feel kinda ancient. I remember setting it up to coincide with the 2000 repeat runs, largely forgotten by now. And who'd have thought that we'd have a live-action Thunderbirds movie by now? And, er, wasn't it... interesting.
In today's updates there's a long-overdue guide to the new Thunderbirds movie (unfortunately lacking in pictures because I haven't got the DVD yet) and a new feature to the site in the form of the brilliantly comprehensive Lexicon written by Kristin D.
I feel I should also make a statement about the forum. Er, yes, sorry everyone. The thing about the old forum was that I'd partially hand-coded it myself, something I felt pretty proud about, so I stuck with it for ages, even when it became apparent that the security was a little lacking. Unfortunately, I then got evicted from the original server and relocated to a new one which couldn't support my forum. So, I shut it down and, although I planned to make a new one, I never got around to it.
Basically, the forum isn't coming back as it used to be, because at the moment there's no way I can spare the time it takes to look after it. But, as a person who's been out of the loop for some time, can I ask if there's another place you all congregate these days? I'd be more than happy to hype up any such place on my site.
