Re: Sue Sue's TCM Film Festival Tidbit Travel Blog

Congratulations on your new book, Sue Sue! 8) Are you still researching and writing, or is it nearly ready for publication? Any general idea of when we'll be able to read it? Will this be the first full-length biography published on Miss Ritter? P.S. I like your title, but have a feeling that Barbar...

Re: Robert Osborne Has Died - R.I.P.

This has come as a shock. Although I wasn't too familiar with his work, a description of Mr. Osborne in The Los Angeles Times as "a delightful hybrid of Walt Disney and Walter Cronkite" sounds about right to me. I know that several of the members here have met Mr. Osborne at the TCM film f...

Re: IMDb Shutters Message Boards

It's just so odd. Somebody must be writing a book with all those comments, quotes, and ideas. Sue Sue, are you referring to moviechat.org? The IMDb message board content that was imported was limited to about 10,000 boards -- out of approximately four million -- and at that, the individual discussi...

Re: IMDb Shutters Message Boards

You know, people actually inquired as to which time zone would be used to mark the midnight take-down of the message boards, and the CEO refused to share that information. Turns out they used Greenwich Mean Time, even though IMDb is located on the west coast of the USA. https://getsatisfaction.com/i...

Re: IMDb Shutters Message Boards

Seems they shut down a few hours early. The message boards were to close as of Feb. 20, so they should have been up until midnight tonight, at least eastern time if not pacific time, which is what I was figuring on. They're all gone now.

Bye-bye Miss American Pie.

Re: IMDb Shutters Message Boards

Also of note: someone has developed a free extension for Google's Chrome browser which will archive all of one's posts across all of the IMDb message boards. I ran it this morning, and it seemed to work, though I can't be sure it captured all of them. In case you've posted info or links to which you...

Re: IMDb Shutters Message Boards

Well folks, today is the final day for IMDb's message boards. Members have been looking for alternatives, places where at least some people could meet up again and continue the discussions. One fellow named Jim Smith, who is an engineer, has set up a new site to emulate the IMDb message boards, and ...
