New accounts and comments have been re-enabled

After years of neglect, this website finally died and I was forced to spend some time updating it the the latest version of the glFusion CMS. Hopefully everything should be working again now, but contact me if you notice anything still broken. I am also going through the rest of the site trying to fix broken links, posting updates, etc. Thanks.

I also re-enabled the ability to create accounts and comment on stories and in the forums. I'll keep an eye on the spam and bot activity to see if it becomes a problem again.

New accounts and comments disabled

General News

I have disabled the creation of new accounts and allowing comments on the site for now. After years of running the site, there were only about 150 accounts that had been registered, but that has increased by 1,400 in the last week. So I will be locking these features down until I can update the site.

Most of the activity is taking place on the Facebook and Twitter accounts so be sure to visit us there.

Make your pledge now for these great Kickstarter projects while there is still time left!

Help fund the restoration of the Star Wars - Lars Homestead "igloo" deep in the Chott el Gharsa Tunisian desert. For your pledge, you can earn some Rare Tatooine Collectibles like a Lars Expedition Certificate, Lars Expedition T-Shirt, and even a unique Tatooine Sand Wristwatch (Premium and Limited Editions). Help fund the book and you will get some great collectible rewards like a behind the scenes DVD of "The Making Of Caravan of Courage" and a CD-Rom of pictures from my personal collection taken from the set and while we were given a private tour of ILM. These collectibles from the Star Wars universe have never been released so now is your chance to get something unique that no one has!

Finse webcam online.

General News

Finse (Hoth) now has streaming video from the train station.

In an upgrade to one of their webcams, the station facing camera now provides streaming video. Now you can check the weather before you travel.

The photo webcam pointed across the frozen lake towards the glacier can be found on the 'webcam' link here.

Video section

General News
A video section was just added here. They are all embedded videos from other websites. So far I have only added videos from YouTube and MySpaceTV but I plan on adding new videos from other sites as I find time. If you have any comments or suggestions, I have created a new forum topic to post in.
