(Opening of the National D-Day Museum here in New Orleans, by the way)
I have three announcements. First of all, I have a call and an e-mail in to Burt’s spokesperson to shed some light on the discrepancies between the tour itinerary supplied to me by Bob Fead yesterday and the information that’s been gathered by fans in the U.K. and elsewhere. Hopefully, I’ll have an answer within 24 hours.
Secondly, for those of you who curse this site’s cumbersome URL, I have gotten a new address you can use, http://welcome.to/bacharach. I’m not on a new server; the welcome.to address simply redirects traffic to this page. Hopefully, this will make remembering AHINAH’s address a little easier. Thirdly, I’ve fixed the problems with the audio/MP3 section. It should work properly now, although since I’m running it off of my office computer, the speed of downloads could vary considerably (depending on whether I’m playing online Jeopardy or reading the Onion or something). A few of the MP3s, “Nikki” and “My Little Red Book” to name two, continue to give me (and I’m sure a lot of you) problems. I will most likely have to re-encode them, that is if Art Boonparn ever gives me back all the Burt CDs I lent him . Finally, I know you’ve all heard this before, but as of right now, I plan to work on the site quite a bit in the next month or two, upgrading it where I can and keeping it up to date, so as usual, I deeply appreciate all the kind words and Burt-fo-mation that you share with me through e-mail or the discussion forum. Thanks.
