We are very proud to announce a new page in the Lightshow
Index, the wonderful biog of Diogenes
Lantern Works has finally arrived at Pooterland!! If you are
into lightshows, then check this out. Diogenes
actually submitted a ‘mini web site’ to us and we have reproduced
this virtually as it arrived to us (we had to shuffle one or two
things to fit on our pages).

Some more additions to the Bands
Index today with updates in P,
Another new thing we are playing with currently is ICQ
and we have an ICQ
page that you can send us messages from. There are also Status
Indicators on the Index
page and Contact
page, as well as the ICQ
page so you know when we are online.
If it’s flashing, drop in for a live chat with the Pooterland
Crew!!. We currently only have one account, but if it works
out we will have one each and you can choose who you want to chat

Hey we’re back!!!.......We thought we would take a week off after
all the stress of recent weeks leading up to the re-launch. Thanks
to everyone who emailed us saying how much they liked the new site
design, I know its has not changed THAT much....well its was more
of a facelift than an entire redesign.
New this week is a page called Who’s
On Tour?, which is kinda self explanatory really, but if your
band is touring and you play music that our visitors will like them
email us a link to your tour info and we will post it up here for
April 1st 2001
Yee Haa....after what seemed like ages locked in a darkened backroom
at the Pooterland office, we
have finally finished re-writing the site after a software
corruption a few months ago. What you are currently looking at is
a ground up, total rebuild of pOoTers
We have taken the opportunity to make many tweaks to the site, some
major and some you probably won’t even notice!!.
New pages are now archived every month to speed up the loading
of the current pages. The old stuff is now stashed away on a page
right at the back of the site in a dark corner called Thee
Archivez, so you can check in there to see old news etc.
sHacK cEnTral has met
with an untimely death due to it not being visited very much and
also now we have the Portal/Directory on the Index
page, we reckoned there was too much duplication.
A very popular feature on sHacK
On The pOoTerland Turntable? has now got it’s own page, as has
Lives at The sHacK?.
The left navigation menu bar has now been changed from text to buttons
as several visitors complained that the blue text was not very visible
on their monitors (must
be using cheap shit ‘cos
it looks cool on our 21” iiyama’s !!!)
The Statistics page
has also met with a horrible death (it was fucking hard work doing
it manually!!) and will only be replaced when we find a suitable
‘live’ system to use.
That’s probably about it, well that’s all we can remember at the
The other main thing which you will have noticed is that most pages
have been hit hard with the ‘Day-Glo
stick’.....this has brightened things up a bit, along with the 3D
page titles you will find on many top level pages.
