As you can see, Magnet has a new website.  Hoooray!!!

Here’s a quick message from Ed Herbstman:

Wow. Welcome to the new site.  Took a little while, huh?  We were pretty ambitious with this overhaul that it took a long time.  I’ll admit, there were moments when it seemed like it wouldn’t happen.  Like when we had to stop work to prepare for Y2K.  Or when we took a break to watch the moon landing on television.  And who could forget Appomattox?

Well, now the new site is here and we hope you really like it and find it useful and clear.

I want to personally and loudly thank Sean Taylor for his incredible job making this new site come alive.  Please tell him what a great job he did next time you see him.

Also thanks to Chris Camp and Justin Moran.  I am jealous of your skills.  I wish I paid attention during advanced PHP, CSS, Javascript and mySQL class but I was too busy being not as smart as you.  I thank you both for being patient with me during the site build. And further thanks to Rick Andrews, and Peter McNerney for their very helpful insights and feedback, along with a lot of busywork and testing.

There are a few other people who helped out along the way, and I also want to thank them.  Frank Bonomo, Christian Capozzoli, TJ Mannix, Armando Diaz, Alex Marino, Marcy Jarreau, Mark Grenier, Elizabeth Findlay and James Eason.

The site was designed by Graham Slick.

You’ll see there are a lot of blog entries.  And starting now you can make comments on posts.  So feel free to comment.

And please comment on this post to let us know what you think of the  new site.

We’ll be testing the settings on the blog in the coming days, so it may be possible that your comment does not show up right away.  This is just part of testing and will be fully operational soon.

That said, if you find something broken or missing, or have a suggestion for something that might improve the site, please let us know.  You can report bugs on the Contact Us page, and in the drop down you’ll see ‘report a bug’.  Or email webmaster@magnettheater.com directly.

Sincerely,

Ed
