Website Updates

12 years ago today, 29th October 1999, Transformers At The Moon was first launched.  The website, at that time, operated from the domain www.transformers.themoon.co.uk which was based from the email address transformers@themoon.  It was by registering this email account that we decided to settle on the name for the site.  Whilst both the email address and the domain have since moved to domains owned by us and to better reflect the focus of the website, Transformers toys, the site has continued to be maintained by the two brothers who first launched it.

We had hoped to launch the 9th version of the website to coincide with the anniversary of the site, however due to my computer at home failing, that project is still outstanding.

We will, however, still run the 12th anniversary celebrations, in terms of new special content and announcements, just as soon as wee are able to.  But in the mean time we would like to express our thanks to all of you who have visited the website over the last 12 years, joined the message board, Facebook group or follow us on  Twitter.  So on behalf of thhe pair of us, THANK YOU.

Steve and Dave AKA Transformers At The Moon

Website Updates

As you have no doubt notice the number of updates to this website, including news stories, has gradualy become less and less over recent weeks and so I thought I would take the time to update you all as to why this is the case.

For those of you who do not know this website was set-up and run by some twins 12 years ago.  In fact the site first launched on the 29th October 1999.  However, for the last few years, as we have gotten older, both of our professional careers have taken up more and more of our free time.  Its fairly common for both of us to work 12-16 hour days and personally I have worked 37 hours straight only a few months ago.  Because of this the time we get to maintain the website code, add new galleries and launch new features has dwindled.  The last year has been especially difficult for us as my brother, who you may know as Moonbug, no longer lives in the same town as myself and he use to maintain a lot of the content whilst I was working on the code.  During this time, and indeed the year prior, I have been re-writing the whole website from the ground up.  What was suppose to have been a 6-8 month project has slipped to 2 years.   I was hoping to launch the website this month as a part of ther 12th year anniversary celebrations, however as of last night my the motherboard on my main computer has died.  The machine has been on its last legs for a while with both the graphics card and soundcard failing and finally the fan on the northbridge has once again packed in causing the board to overheat and fry.

The good news is that when the issues stared all of the data was backed up onto an external hard disk so I have, at most, lost about a few days worth of coding and 2 months worth of emails to an old email address.

I will continue to update the news from work, when I can as well as from home via my phone or this extremely low powered netbook whilst I order and re-build a new computer.

My brother is currently out of the country on holiday but once he is back I am sure that he will try to update the site as much as he can whilst I am unable to add new galleries, yes this netbook is that low powered it can't handle high res image editing.

I will continue to try to complete the last 3% of the website re-write as well as things are so close to launch but I wanted to let you all know that if things seem quiet around here for the next week or so it is not because the website has stopped, on the contrary, we have a lot of unique content that we have been preparing to add to the website from hard copies and testshots through cartoon models and behind the scenes Sunbow documents as well as general toy galleries.

What it does mean though, is the big celebration I was hoping to have to commemorate the 12th aniversary of the website will be delayed, perhaps to the 12th anniversary of the official launch of the site which was the 11th November 1999.

Thanks,

Steve AKA Quartz

Website UpdatesIf you are in, or can get to the London area on Saturday October 1st then you may want to pop along to The Shakespeare's Head in Holborn at 11am as there will be a social meet for Transformers fans.  The event combines the social events Moonbase 2 ran since 2009, with others run since by their combined site with Kapow Toys known as FullMetalHero.  Member of various other forums and sites include The Nerdsphere and TheTransformers.net will also be on hand as well as some members of this site, Transformers At The Moon.

The event officially starts at 11am at the pub but the plan is that people will meet up there over a 1 hour period before moving onto the nearby shops including Forbidden Planet and Orbital Comics.

As long time visitors to this site will know we have run pub meets in Holborn before (starting back in 2001/2002) and normally meet just around the corner from this pub so you should be able to find it easily enough.

More information is available on our forum here or on the official event's Facebook page here.  Work permitting, I should be there and it will be great to see as many of you as can make it especially as the website will be turning 12 at the end of October.

There are 50 pages scanned from the Dengeki Hobby managzine and 13 from TV Magazine.

Remember to check out the hundreds of other Japanese magazine scans which we have in our Transformers In The Media section.

Website Updates

I thought I would take a moment to explain about the lack of updates to the website.  For the last month I have been extremely busy with my job which has had a massive impact on the time I spend maintaining my websites.  This was then followed by Auto Assembly, for which I was on the committee, and led to the lack of updates to the website since Thursday.  Since being back from AA, which has only been a day, I've been busy putting things back that I had to get out or move around in order to take to the event.  Do not worry though, I will be getting back to the site and updating both the news and resource sections very shortly.  I do apologise for the lack of updates this year which has primarily been caused by the change in responsibilities at my work, but I will strive to find more of a balance and so you should start to see the results very soon.

Thanks

Steve AKA Quartz
