During the fall of 2006 I thought it would be a nice idea to create a place where parents, family and friends of UDMB members could visit and read about performances, events and even some behind the scenes stories. Not everyone can always attend the band’s performances so perhaps this would be a way to keep the important people in the world of my students informed, updated, and even on occasion, entertained.
A few months ago I changed from my own site, one that required multiple steps with each entry in order to maintain ease of use for the reader, to a partial commercial site that allowed me to simply post and everything else (archiving, rss feed updates, etc.) was taken care of automatically……and somehow, someway that site was hacked a few weeks ago.
I am trying again in the hopes that it does not happen again. If it does I will return to my original format (which I still have in totality through the 2007 Orientation post in mid-June) and simply do all the work myself—no worries!
I figure after 1 year and 6,600+ site hits, it is a place people go to for information and well worth the time and effort.
