New Floyd posters
Posted by madhack on Jun 13, 2000
The Fandom received information regarding RockMusicMemorabilia.com. Apparently, they are carrying Floyd posters from the 1970 Bath Festival, where Atom Heart Mother was premiered, and the 1975 Knebworth Festival. They are reprints made by the daughter of Freddy Bannister, who promoted both shows. This link will take you directly to the posters in question.
New database for the site
Posted by madhack on May 15, 2000
The Fandom has switched over to a new database back-end (you may have noticed the slightly new date format - a nice side-effect of using a much better back-end). This shouldn't affect most people, but if you notice any strange things on the news page, please email me.

As many of you guessed, the tour announcement was an April Fool's prank. Many thanks to Leslie Johnson, who helped me out a lot when my creativity was running low. We tried our best to make it just believable enough to be funny, but too unbelievable to be true. Hope you all enjoyed, and we now resume our regularly scheduled programming :).

More news on downtime
Posted by madhack on Mar 10, 2000
An update on the upcoming downtime: it will not be for a few more weeks and it will be much shorter than expected, no more than 2 days. I may still have it mirrored though. Thanks to all our regular visitors for your patience.

It appears that The Fandom will have some downtime. I will be moving cross-country for a new job. I've arranged to have it mirrored on another server; however, functionality will be greatly decreased and there will be no news updates during this time. I will also be unable to answer email during this time. With any luck, most people should not see any problems; I just want all the people who have made the Fandom so popular to know what's going on.
In the Flesh '00 tour dates soon
