Server Move Complete

Submitted by Brian on February 18, 2008.

The server move is complete. Hopefully you have found us by now and I have most everything unpacked and put in the proper place.

I also upgraded the site software. You should see a few small differences around here.

And finally, the Member Map module is active now for registered users.

Enjoy!

We're Moving!

Submitted by Brian on February 14, 2008.
Site News
This site has been around for nearly 4 years now. The first 2 years it was just a static HTML site, mainly meant to host photos from all the surf shows my wife and I had went to. Then, nearly 2 years ago, I loaded up some interactive software and the site as you know it was born. We have grown a lot in those 2 years, and I have big plans for the future. So I have decided to move this site to a dedicated server, where we will have much more room for growth and experimentation.

Never having done this before, I'm not sure how it is all going to play out. We will still be known as surfguitar101.com, but the domain name must be moved to the new server. That may mean a day or two of disruption. There may also be a period where people in one part of the world are posting on the old server, while others have already been moved to the new server. I'm going to try to minimize that, but it may happen that a few posts get lost in the shuffle. When will this happen? Sometime in the next 7-14 days I think.

I'm really looking forward to having more space, bandwidth, and potential for future growth. Thanks again for your support!

Announcing the SG101 2007 MP3 Compilation!

Submitted by Brian on September 17, 2007.
Site News
I am pleased to announce the SurfGuitar101 2007 MP3 Compilation! Just like last year and the year before, this is a way for all members to share music, recording tips, and to just have fun. The main emphasis is fun, so please send in an entry no matter what your skill level is. Here are the rules:
  1. You must be a member of this website to submit an mp3.
  2. You may submit only 1 mp3.
  3. The mp3 you submit must not have appeared on any "official" release before. Likewise, please don't submit anything that is destined for an official release in the future.
  4. The mp3 must be 8 MB in size or less.
  5. There is a good chance the comp will end up on Archive.org. Therefore, you must agree to their Creative Commons (Attribution, Non-Commercial, No-Derivatives) License for your mp3.
  6. The deadline for submitting an mp3 is Friday, December 14th, 2007.
I have created an Official 2007 MP3 Comp Forum Thread. Please use that thread to discuss the compilation and to get information on how to submit an mp3. Please use that thread if you'd like to find a fellow member to work with on the project. With the magic of digital recording and the internet, remote collaborations are possible. Make your own virtual surf band! Let the comp begin!

Please check out our prior compilations if you haven't seen them already: 2005 2006.

Announcing the SurfGuitar101 Podcast!

Submitted by Brian on June 10, 2007.
Site News
I have created and published the first in what will hopefully be a series of SurfGuitar101 podcasts! The feed has been submitted to iTunes, but as I type this it is not currently available yet. In the meantime, you can download and listen to episode #1 by visiting surfguitar101.podcastspot.com. Remember kids, you don't need an iPod or portable MP3 player to listen, just download or stream on your computer. This link provides an easy way to listen from your computer.

This episode features music by Satan's Pilgrims, The Halibuts, Pollo del Mar, The Madeira, The Volcanos, Jon & The Nightriders, The Wet Tones, and many more! Plus we have an exclusive interview with Danny Snyder from Meshugga Beach Party and The TomorrowMen!

I've created a SG101 Podcast sub-forum, so please direct all your comments, criticisms, ideas, suggestions, and requests there. Thanks everyone!

P.S. I asked a lot of bands if I could play them, but due to space and time constraints I could only play a subset. You will definitely hear from them on future episodes!

Calendar Updates

Submitted by Brian on March 25, 2007.
Site News
Hello all,

Just a quick announcement about a couple of changes to the event calendar. First, there is a new Javascript editor for entering event details. This should help folks out with adding links, lists, colors, and even smilies.   The editor works well on Windows machines with all browsers that I know of. Mac users might have to stick with Firefox for best results. If you have problems with the editor please let me know.

Second, there is a new "Email Event to Friend" feature. Drill down to view a single event on the calendar. There is a new link that will let you email a link to the event to a friend. Try it out and let me know what you think.

Thanks!

Site Upgrade Completed

Submitted by Brian on March 17, 2007.

The site upgrade seemed to go okay.  There are a couple of changes everyone should be aware of.

  • The chat feature has been temporarily disabled. There is a new version of that software available and I may install that a bit later.
  • The RSS feeds have improved. Also please note that the forums feed URL has changed. The old one will not work. Please use the new feed mentioned on the home page and/or in the footer of each page.
  • Uploading files to the downloads area is still disabled for now. I still need to do some housecleaning in that area.
  • There is a new javascript editor for submitting news stories. It should work for Mac users if you use Firefox!
  • There are probably some quirks and issues here and there. If you notice anything just let me know.
Enjoy!
