Possible downtime

Posted by madhack on Nov 7, 1999

Just a heads up to any regular visitors to the Fandom: The machine that hosts the page is going to be moving to a new location soon. Now, in theory, there should be no downtime because of the way we're coordinating the switch. But that's over there in theory, and unfortunately, this is all happening in the real world. So there's a possibility of some downtime sometime this week, but keep checking in and you should be able to eventually get here.

Posted by madhack on Nov 4, 1999

It appears that EMI has delayed the release of the live "The Wall" album, entitled "Is There Anybody Out There? -- The Wall Live" until February 7, 2000. Sucks, I was really looking forward to getting this and the DVD as Christmas presents for myself... see the press release on Yahoo News.

Release date for "The Wall" DVD

Posted by madhack on Oct 10, 1999

Release date for The Wall on DVD is set for November 9. You can place an advance order on CDNow. The DVD version of the movie includes commentary by Waters and James Guthrie, and Roger has suggested that Reel 7 (Hey You) has been added in as a bonus. Looks absolutely great. You'll also note on CDNow that it's being rereleased on VHS, for those of you without DVD players. I've seen nothing on the differences between the VHS and DVD releases, but hopefully the tape will have some goodies as well. Also note that some places are saying it's coming out on the 23rd; I'll note the correct date when I find out.
