22 March 2008: Some updates over at The Brian Mannix Pages. In an effort to retrieve some of my expensive disk space and I have removed all the gig photos that people have sent me - from the actual web site. It was costing me too much to host them there. I have transferred all the photos to a private account at photobucket. I then created small slideshows for the actual gig photos page and then made really big slideshows and loaded them to the blog here htttp://www.myspace.com/uncannyxmenfanspace The blog has room for people to add comments about your photos or even reviews of the same gig etc. So I think it will make them more interactive.
I also killed the bravenet guest book - it was attracting too many spammers and along with the time spent in the forum and the myspace page I found I was forgetting to clear the spam from it. So instead clicking on Guestbook now directs you to the Fan Forum where there is a separate board for unregistered guests to post a message.
